Fruit skewers

Fruit skewers



  • 6 wooden skewers
  • 1 red apple
  • ½ honey dew melon
  • 2 bananas
  • 1 cup (250mL) vanilla yoghurt
  • 1 Flake chocolate bar
  • ½ cup desiccated coconut
  • 2 drops yellow food colouring (optional)
  • 2 drops red food colouring (optional)


Quarter and core the apples, then cut each quarter into pieces about 2cm square.

Peel bananas and chop each into 6 pieces.

Peel honeydew, deseed and chop into 2cm square pieces.

For each skewer, thread on two pieces of each fruit.

Kids love this bit; let them choose their own combination.

Pour yoghurt into a shallow bowl.

Place coconut in a shallow bowl, add 2 drops of yellow and red colouring (optional) and mix well – you should end up with some yellow, orange and red flecks.

Crumble the Flake bar into a shallow bowl.

Serve the fruit skewers on a plate, let the kids choose one, dip it in the yoghurt and then roll in the coconut or Flake. Ta da, fun fruit.



  • If you would prefer not to use food colouring, use plain coconut, or toast it in a frypan over low heat.
  • I used the fruit my kids will eat (and the honeydew for colour!); use your kids’ favourites.
  • If you want to avoid the chocolate, you could use sprinkles or 100s and 100s or finely chopped dried fruit.
