American Flag Fruit Kabobs 

These patriotic, festive, and healthy fruit kabobs will surely be a hit at your 4th of July picnic or any summer party! They are so easy to assemble and great for the kids to help put together!


  • 1 - 2 lbs. strawberries, sliced
  • 4 - 5  bananas, cut into 1″ slices (soaked in lemon juice)
  • 1 pint of fresh blueberries
  • 10 wooden skewers, 12″
  • Note: list of red, white, and blue ingredient substitutions provided below*


  1. Remove the stems from the strawberries and slice large strawberries in half; small berries can be left whole.
  2. Cut the bananas into 1″ slices.
  3. Dip banana slices into lemon juice to prevent browning.
  4. On the first 5 skewers, with the pointed end, spear 10 blueberries through the middle, in a row.
  5. After you have speared 10 blueberries add a banana slice, a strawberry, another banana slice, and then end with another strawberry. It looks best if the strawberries all point the same way. Repeat this pattern on 4 more skewers.
  6. On the remaining 5 skewers, pierce 1 strawberry, followed by 1 banana slice, followed by 1 strawberry, repeating this pattern until you have used 5 strawberries and 4 bananas.
  7. Repeat the strawberry/banana pattern on the remaining 4 skewers.
  8. Arrange the skewers on a serving tray or cookie sheet to make the patriotic flag design.
  9. Serve immediately or refrigerate until you are ready to serve Flag Fruit Kabob!
