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 80’s now, and starting to push the 90’s. Time spent outdoors right now is fabulous, especially if you have a pool.
In my family, it is common to grill and eat summer type foods. These fruit kabobs are a great addition to any get together, whether it be indoor or outdoor because they will hold up great either way. They are also great for kids and grown-ups alike.
What are the benefits of strawberries and blueberries?
Strawberries are highly nutritious and provide vitamin C, manganese, folate and potassium. Blueberries are high in fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K and manganese. Strawberries and blueberries are also high in antioxidants.
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.
How do I store fruit kabobs?
Wrap each kabob in a sheet of plastic wrap, ensuring no air can reach the fruit. Then put in a resealable bag and place in the fridge. Properly stored, the kabobs may last for about 3 to 5 days in the refrigerator.
Can I freeze fruit kabobs?
Place kabobs in a single layer on a baking sheet. Freeze at least 1 hour or until fruit is frozen through. Once frozen, the can be placed in a resealable bag and kept in the freezer for up to 2 weeks.
