How to Make Fruit and Donut Kabobs

For these kabobs, we’re using the following ingredients:

  • Strawberries – strawberries give a big, bright, vibrant red hue to our kabobs, are sweet and a favorite for most kids!
  • Blueberries – blueberries give a small bright blue hue with a tart and sweet flavor.
  • Donut holes – powdered sugar or glazed donut holes give a lovely white hue to alternate with fruit and are easy to slide onto skewers.
  • Bananas – bananas are a great low sugar alternate to donut holes that perfectly fit the red, white, and blue theme and are kid-friendly favorites!

Tips & Tricks to Perfect Donut Kabobs

Use different fruits. Add more flavor by mixing in other red, white, and blue fruits like blackberries, grapes, apple slices, pears, or anything else you find in the right hue!

Go super healthy. To nix the sugar from donut holes, you can use bananas, dragonfruit, apples, or pineapple pieces (we like to cut them into stars) to alternate color.

Dry fruit before adding to skewers. If you leave fruit wet after rinsing, it will make the donut holes soggy – pat them dry with a paper towel to help prevent the donut holes from getting wet and soggy from the fruit.

FAQs

Can I pre-make these kabobs?

Fruit kabobs only take a few minutes to assemble, but

How long do fruit and donut kabobs last?

These kabobs will last up to a day – but can get soggy from the fruit. We recommend eating the same day they are assembled, or removing fruit from kabobs and storing separate from donut holes.

Can I use other fruits?

Blackberries, grapes, dragonfruit – any fruit that sticks to our red, white, and blue color theme are great in this recipe!
