16 Dec Christmas Fruit Skewers
Christmas Fruit Skewers
Merry Christmas! It is just around the corner. Are you ready to start the festivities? The kids have holidays and the best way to engage them is creating these simple Christmas Fruit Skewers and snowmen. I am continuing my X-mas creations after the Watermelon Xmas Trees with these Christmas Fruit Skewers. Do try out these delightful Fruit Kebabs and Snowmen. I have always wanted to build a snowman but having lived all my life in the tropics it’s only been a pipedream. The closest I have come to making a snowman is these adorable, Xmas Banana Snowmen. I am an old woman now and my creations are far from perfect but the feeling is really genuine.
And what better way to celebrate with a Christmas Fruit Skewers? This special treat is so easy to make and takes just a few simple ingredients.
It is also a healthy snack idea for Christmas. Kids would love to pop a snowman into their mouth or a Grinch.
Ingredients for Snowman, Grinch and Christmas Fruit Skewers
5 mini marshmallows (optional)
Choco-chips for eyes and buttons
Carrot triangles for mouth
Method for Making Xmas Snowmen
Chop the banana into round chunks. If they are thin then the skewer will break them.
Cut the strawberry bottoms…you need triangle or hat shape.
Take a bamboo skewer and thread three banana slices.
Now place the chocolate sprinkles on the first banana slice as eyes and on the other two as buttons (you can even use black sesame). Take an orange sprinkle and place it as the nose or chop a tiny carrot piece into a triangle and use that. I had sugar coated saunf or fennel seeds and I used those for the mouth. I used sprinkles as kids just love them. Be innovative and use whatever is available.
Creative, cute and decorative Xmas Snowmen are ready. Eat them right away as the banana tends to blacken. But if you want to serve them later then brush the banana slices with a mixture of pineapple and lemon juice.
The Grinch or Xmas Fruit kebabs
Chop the bananas into roundels and keep the edges to be used as hats.
Cut the lower half of the strawberries and pop the top in your mouth!
Wash the grapes and keep aside.
How to make the Grinch
Take a toothpick and thread the grape first.
Next slide on a banana slice and the strawberry.
Top with a mini marshmallow if you have them. We don’t get them here so I used the banana edges and some white chocolate for the hat.
Arrange the fruit picks decoratively on a serving platter.Your Grinch’s are ready but see to it that they don’t steal your Christmas!
Christmas Fruit Skewers
Cut stars out of the watermelon with a cookie cutter.
Cut the lower half of the strawberries and share the top with whosoever is around you. There is no one around me so I pop it in my mouth.
Banana roundels and pyramid shaped edges of the banana.
For these K
Carefully spear the watermelon star on one pick,
Top the fruit kebabs with a mini marshmallow if you get them. We don’t get them here so I used the banana edges and some white chocolate for the hat.
Make as many kebabs as you want and serve then on a fancy platter.
These Christmas fruit kebabs look so colourful and tempting. You will find the platters empty in minutes.
If you are making a big quantity then chop off one end of a cabbage and pierce these skewers in it. They will look amazing.
These are a great addition to a buffet table as they are healthy and kid-friendly.
Enjoy Christmas with your kids and create these Christmas Fruit Kebabs with your family!!
