How to Make Fruit Skewers

Rainbow fruit kebabs are easy to switch up according to your taste. Choose the berries and flavors that your family can’t resist. The large marshmallows are meant to be clouds and add a touch of sweetness.

This is just a preview of the recipe. The full details are on the recipe card below.

For this delicious recipe you will need:

  • Fruit of your choice
  • Large marshmallows
  • Bamboo skewers, kebab sticks or toothpicks if you want to make mini fruit skewers
  • Large marshmallows


To make your rainbow fruit skewers, you’ll need to wash, peel, and prep your fruit first. Once your fruit is ready to go, it’s time to start adding the cut fruit in rainbow color order.

Here are some color suggestions for fruit options:

Red: strawberries, raspberries, watermelon, red grapes

Orange: orange segments, cantaloupe, fresh peach slices

Yellow: fresh pineapple

Green: green grapes, honey dew melon

Blue: blueberries

Purple: purple grapes

Cream Cheese Dip

Next up? The creamy fruit dip!

Because this dip needs to be refrigerated for a few hours, you’ll need to make sure an plan ahead. You can easily make the cream cheese dip the night before you plan to serve it or keep some in the fridge for any time you serve fruit.

The dip is so simple to make!

In a small bowl, beat together all the ingredients until smooth. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours to allow the flavors to blend.

How to Store Fruit Skewers

You can make the fruit skewers up to a day in advance, but I would recommend not adding the marshmallows until you are ready to serve.

To store, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate the skewers until you are ready to serve them.

The cream cheese dip can be made ahead of time and stored in an airtight container

How To Display Fruit Skewers

If you’re not sure how to display fruit skewers, a sky blue platter would be perfect. A wooden cutting board would also give them a natural farmhouse feel too.

A few more creative ideas include:

  • Use a mini muffin tin to keep the fruit and dip separate
  • Serve in mason jars for an easy grab and go treat
  • Pile them high on top of a cake stand
  • For a funny twist, try serving them stuck into a half of a hollowed out watermelon

No matter how you choose to serve them, these rainbow fruit skewers with dip are sure to be a hit at your next party!

These colorful fruit kebabs are the perfect addition to any party table, and they’re super easy to make. The recipe only requires a few ingredients that you can find at your local grocery store or farmer’s market! So grab your favorite fruit and get skewerin’!
