Patriotic-themed recipes displaying our national flag colors are always so much fun to create and have fun with. Since I was super busy this week getting ready for a summer vacay, I wanted SIMPLICITY. Pure and simple . . . easy. These delicious and healthy Red, White and Blue Fruit Kabobs were perfect!
Every year, I experiment with something new and so far, it has always been something sweet for dessert. These are also fantastic for getting the kids involved in the kitchen. No matter how wonky they may look on a stick. Truth is, there is no one way to put the fruit on the skewers. Go wild and have fun with these.
For the red colors, choose from strawberries, raspberries, or cherries.
And for the blue colors, I always use blueberries.
Finally, for the white colors, you can use bananas or marshmallows. To keep it completely healthy, stick with the bananas.
For decorating the kabobs, go to a craft store and pick up some red, white and blue ribbons, the wooden skewers, etc. Place them in a clear, short but wide, candle glass. Tie the ribbons around the glass and place the skewers upright inside the glass. Serve on some patriotic, red, white and blue plates along with a few kabobs already laid out. If time permits, you can also tie ribbons around the base of each kabob.
