We see this one pop up at our Kids Eat Smart Clubs each year. It’s a fun festive way to enjoy fruit and get kids excited about Christmas. It’s an easy and fun concept. There is some prep work needed but this is a great one to get the kids involved in helping out – little hands make a great help. Adults can prepare and slice the fruit and the kids can help assemble.
Grinch Fruit Kabobs
What you’ll need:
- green grapes
- mini marshmallows
- Cut the greens and stems off the strawberries to make a flat surface.
- Slice off the top of the green grapes to make a flat surface.
- Slice the bananas into 3 millimeter slices (do one banana at a time to avoid them turning brown or squeeze some orange juice over them to keep them from discoloring).
- On a toothpick or mini plastic skewer place one grape (flat side up), slice of banana, strawberry (flat side meeting banana) and finally the mini marshmallow on top.
