Looking for an Easy Memorial Day treat? Don’t bother heating up the oven to bake something red-white-and-blue instead check out these ideas for Fruit Kabobs! For instance, this cute and yummy flag made of Fruit-Kabobs is easy to put together and makes a nice presentation!
All you’ll need is some bananas, strawberries, blueberries and kabob sticks! TIP: Aldi’s has their strawberries on sale for $.99 per carton this week where we live in Tennessee!
Or ty these Red, White & Blue Fruit Kabobs or “Sparklers”! This take on fruit-kabobs is extra fun for the little ones – just alternate blueberries, watermelon and mini-marshmallows on a skewer. Stick them all into half of a cut watermelon for a cute skewer-holder!
