Fruit Kabobs – Low-Calorie, Gluten-Free

Fruit kabobs are light and refreshing and make a fun snack for adults and kids alike. Perfect for an indoor or outdoor get together with friends and family.

 

Happy Memorial Day weekend! I want to acknowledge that Memorial Day is more than just a day off of work, or an excuse to have a BBQ or pool party. Memorial Day is celebrated on the last Monday of every May to honor and remember all of the men and women who died fighting for our country. I am forever grateful to all those who have served our country.

 

Memorial Day is the unofficial start to the summer season. Since schools are closed this day, and it is a day many people are off of work, it is typically spent gathering with friends and family and having an outdoor get together. Here in Arizona, it is started to warm up quickly. We are seeing temperatures well into the 80โ€™s now, and starting to push the 90โ€™s. Time spent outdoors right now is fabulous, especially if you have a pool.

Only 4 ingredients are needed to assemble these kabobs, and they come together quickly. First, assemble fruit kabobs in a pattern. My pattern from bottom to top is marshmallow, blueberry, strawberry, 2 blueberries, strawberry, 2 blueberries, strawberry, blueberry, marshmallow. Then, I melt the dark chocolate chips in the microwave and drizzle it over the kabobs. This is a quick, festive treat, everyone enjoys.
