Tips for Success

  • Make the skewers right before serving. Assemble these skewers right before serving as the bananas will brown the longer they sit.  
  • Coat the bananas. You can toss the bananas in apple juice, pineapple juice, lime juice or orange juice so they don’t turn brown.
  • Thick banana slices. Each banana slice should be thick enough that it does not fall off the Christmas Fruit Kabobs.
  • Wash and dry fruit thoroughly. All of the fruit needs to be washed and completely dried before using.
  • Insert the fruit in the center. The skewers will be more stable if the skewer is in the center of each piece of fruit.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you make these in advance?

The fruit skewers are best made right before serving. I do not suggest making these in advance. The bananas will turn brown after awhile.
