Red, White, and Blue Fruit Kabobs

Summer is almost here which means BBQs, picnics, and fun in the sun. Celebrate holidays like Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day with these festive Red, White, and Blue Fruit kabobs. They’re easy to make and are a healthy appetizer. Plus, kids love helping put them together!

  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 12 servings 1x


Units Scale
  • 2 large bananas, sliced into 12 slices each
  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice (for brushing the banana slices)
  • 24 strawberries (about 2 pints), green top removed
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries (about 1/2 pint)


  1. Place the banana slices on a small plate or in a bowl. Use a pastry brush to brush each slice with pineapple juice to keep the banana slices from browning.
  2. Then, assemble each kabob by threading on a strawberry, banana slice, and 2-3 blueberries. See the photos for guidance on how the kabob should look.
  3. Store the kabobs in an airtight container in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve them.
  4. Serve chilled or at room temperature.


  1. You will need wooden toothpicks or skewers to make the kabobs.
  2. You can easily double, triple, or quadruple this recipe to make enough kabobs for a larger gathering.
  3. If serving these kabobs to children, be careful of the choking hazard when using toothpicks.
  4. Feel free to get creative with the fruits you use. You can even substitute vegetables if necessary (try jicama for the white instead of banana for a lower-sugar option).
