Delectable Tuesday Blog Hop 8/30 - Fruity Fun Skewers

Has school started were you are? Our homeschool is going to start next week and although I do not have to pack lunches for the kids we do need quick fun lunches during the school week.

This recipe is fun, easy and healthy. Best of all the kids can put them together with just a little bit of help. Add a quick sandwich or wrap and lunch is ready!


Fruity Fun Skewers

5 large strawberries, halved
1/4 cantaloupe, cut into balls or cubes
2 bananas, peeled and cut into chunks
1 apple, cut into chunks
20 skewers

Kiwis, Grapes, Pineapples and Blueberries are all also great choices.

Thread the strawberries, cantaloupe, banana and apple pieces alternately onto skewers, placing at least 2 pieces of fruit on each skewer. Arrange the fruit skewers decoratively on a serving platter.

    I posted about sweet peppers, a flavorful alternative to the common bell. Check out how to choose them, use them, and their nutrient content.

  5. My kids love fruit skewers with yogurt dip....it's a special way to eat ordinary fruit and they feel extra special.

    Our school starts next week as well and I am not looking forward school lunches at all.
