Summer Fruit Kabobs

February 12th, 2013 posted by Tami Rose

For your next trip to the beach, pack these easy to make fruit kabobs into your cooler for something healthy to munch on. Who says that fast food can’t be healthy or nutritious? Kids will love to make this easy fruit recipe!

What You Need

Assorted fruit pieces of your choice (choose from the following):
watermelon, strawberries, grapes, pineapple,
cantaloupe, honeydew
deli turkey, cubed
cheddar cheese, cubed
bendable drinking straws
wooden skewer

What You Do

Cut fruit into bite-size pieces. Use a wooden skewer to make
a hole through the center of each piece of food before layering them onto the straw.

Turn a drinking straw upside down and fold the bendable part of the straw around, creating a handle. Slide a piece of food onto the straw, pushing it to the bottom and onto the hooked part of the straw to secure the handle. Continue layering the meat, cheese and fruit until the straw is full.

Serve chilled alongside fruity cream cheese dip.

For Dip:
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 pack Dream Whip Topping, mixed according to package directions
1-2 tsp sugar free drink mix – strawberry or lemon work really well

Mix Dream Whip Topping and chill until needed. Beat cream cheese and drink mix
until creamy and fluffy. Fold in Dream Whip. Refrigerate until ready to eat.

***Important Note: If you are making these kabobs to take on a picnic or to the beach, make sure to pack them in sealed, plastic containers and that they are kept well chilled.
