Fruit Kebabs

Fruit Kebabs

Hope everyone is having a fun summer, Summer for me so far has been very hectic but fun filled. With Parents visiting, last month flew away in a jiffy. With hot weather markets are filled with fruits and my yard is all geared up for bounty. Though California is supposed to be warm to be frank Jun- Aug are the only months that it truly seems like summer rest of the months it starts to get very cold by sunset which restricts our outdoor activities.

So fun while the sun shines has been our motto and we have been hitting beaches,parks and have been having quite few outings.

My kids are very picky eaters to get them to eat anything including fruit is a task in itself, sometimes making food fun and exciting either with shapes or colors makes them atleast to attempt to eat and one such attempt was today's recipe fruit kakabs.

Recipe is so versatile and easy that it can be done to one taste and availability of fruit. Today used White Peaches, ripe Mango's and Strawberries.

1 cup White Peaches cubed
1 cup Mangoes
1 cup Strawberries sliced horizontally
Fancy toothpicks
half Orange just to act as a stand (remove pulp)

1. Add Peaches,strawberries and Mangoes to the toothpick and prick the toothpick to Orange shell
2. Repeat till the whole Orange shell is covered.
If required honey dressing can be added but at peak summer fruits were very sweet without any additional sweeteners.

Have a fun Summer everyone !!!
