Fruit Kebabs Recipe

The fruit kebabs might be sweet and tasty, but they're also packed with soluble and insoluble fiber, which have lots of health benefits and make you feel full.

You’ll need:

  • 8 skewers (If using wooden skewers, make sure to soak them in water for at least 30 minutes.)
  • 2 cups pineapple chunks
  • 2 cups watermelon chunks
  • 2 bananas (peeled, cut into large chunks)
  • 1 package strawberries (stems discarded)
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

How to prepare the fruit kebabs:

  1. Heat a grill to medium-high. Prepare the fruit by chopping 2 cups pineapple and 2 cups watermelon. Peel and thickly slice bananas and remove stems from strawberries.
  2. Thread fruit onto the skewers, aiming for two pieces of each fruit per skewer: strawberry, pineapple, watermelon, banana, strawberry, pineapple, watermelon and banana. Place onto a platter or baking sheet.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the balsamic vinegar, honey and oil. Whisk together. Use a basting brush to glaze fruit with about half the balsamic mixture.
  4. Grill fruit kababs about 8 to 10 minutes, turning a couple of times while cooking and basting with remaining balsamic mixture until fruit is caramelized.
