Number of Servings and Serving Size

  • Serving Size: 1 Kabob per person


  • 200 grams (0.44 pounds) of strawberries, hulled and halved
  • 150 grams (0.33 pounds) of green grapes
  • 150 grams (0.33 pounds) of blueberries
  • 200 grams (0.44 pounds) of pineapple, cut into chunks
  • 2 bananas, sliced into 1/2 inch pieces (approx. 200 grams or 0.44 pounds)
  • 10 wooden skewers

Method of Preparation

  1. Begin by preparing all the fruits. Wash the grapes and blueberries thoroughly. Hull and halve the strawberries, and peel and chop the pineapple into bite-sized chunks. Slice the bananas last to avoid browning.
  2. Take a skewer and thread a piece of each fruit onto it, creating a pattern. For instance, start with a grape, then add a piece of strawberry, followed by a chunk of pineapple, a slice of banana, and a blueberry. Repeat until the skewer is full, leaving enough space at the bottom to hold it.
  3. Arrange the fruit kabobs on a platter or a serving dish.
  4. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate if serving later. Best enjoyed fresh!

Tips for Culinary Success

  • Mix and match with different fruits according to season and preference.
  • If serving at a party, you can set up a 'make your own kabob' station with a variety of fruits for a fun, interactive snack time.
