Red, White and Blue Fruit Kabobs #recipe

Looking for a fun and yummy dessert for a Memorial Day, 4th of July or Labor Day party?  Then how about some Fruit Kabobs!

Materials and ingredients and cost breakdown (as of 05/25/13):
  • Wood Skewers ($1.99 for 100)
  • 4 containers strawberries ($1 each at Aldis)
  • 1 container blueberries ($1.99 at Aldis)
  • 1 angel food cake (from scratch or from your grocer’s deli section - mix $2.29 at Meijers)

How to assemble:
  1. Bake the angel food cake either from scratch or from a mix if you choose too. Allow enough time to set it aside and let it cool.
  2. Wash the strawberries and the blueberries and let them drain.  I filled my sink with a water/white vinegar mixture to clean them.
  3. Remove the stem from the strawberries into quarters.
  4. Slice the angel food cake and cut into  square/rectangle pieces.
 I assembled my kabobs this way:  strawberry, angel food cake, 2 blueberries, strawberry, angel food cake, and 2 blueberries. Keep assembling until you run out of ingredients. Line them up on serving dish!

Not a fan of angel food cake?  How about these fun substitutions:  pound cake, mini white cupcakes, etc.  You can even switch up the berries.


  1. such a fun healthy treat! I LOVE angel food!

  2. Love how these turned out. If my daughter and grandson were home right now, I'd give these a try for Memorial Day
