Fruit skewers recipe
- 6 wooden skewers
- 1 red apple
- ½ honey dew melon
- 2 bananas
- 1 cup (250mL) vanilla yoghurt
- 1 Flake chocolate bar
- ½ cup desiccated coconut
- 2 drops yellow food colouring (optional)
- 2 drops red food colouring (optional)
Quarter and core the apples, then cut each quarter into pieces about 2cm square.
Peel bananas and chop each into 6 pieces.
Peel honeydew, deseed and chop into 2cm square pieces.
For each skewer, thread on two pieces of each fruit.
Kids love this bit; let them choose their own combination.
Pour yoghurt into a shallow bowl.
Place coconut in a shallow bowl, add 2 drops of yellow and red colouring (optional) and mix well – you should end up with some yellow, orange and red flecks.
Crumble the Flake bar into a shallow bowl.
Serve the fruit skewers on a plate, let the kids choose one, dip it in the yoghurt and then roll in the coconut or Flake. Ta da, fun fruit.
- If you would prefer not to use food colouring, use plain coconut, or toast it in a frypan over low heat.
- I used the fruit my kids will eat (and the honeydew for colour!); use your kids’ favourites.
- If you want to avoid the chocolate, you could use sprinkles or 100s and 100s or finely chopped dried fruit.
