Hello, Rhubarbarians! Here's a super fun and easy recipe to make with your kiddos. FRUIT KABOBS!
These fruit kabobs are a huge hit in my house... with EVERYONE! Even my husband raves about this peanut butter dip. He actually suggested I make a smoothie with this flavor. Hmmm.... maybe soon! ?
The fruit kabobs are super simple to put together and Rhubarbaby loves pulling the fruit off the skewers and dipping into the dip. KID APPROVED! BOOYAH!
Peanut butter: a nutritious favorite in our house!
Let's be real: the star of this snack really is the creamy, nutty, delicious peanut butter. The dip is what makes these fruit kabobs out of this world delicious. The peanut butter creates a thick, creamy consistency that really goes well with fresh fruit.
This can be served for breakfast, as a snack, or as a fun dessert! Peanut is so versatile and affordable that we have staple recipes that include it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and dessert!
I'm so happy Rhubarbaby loves peanut butter because it's loaded with protein and fiber! Just two tablespoons have eight powerful grams of protein, two grams of filling fiber, and twelve grams of unsaturated fat. So, snack away and feel great about it!

How to make fruit kabobs
These fruit kabobs are so simple to make!
- Start by choosing your fruit: I like to use strawberries, bananas, apples, and blueberries. But other fruits that can stand up to a skewer are pears, grapes, kiwis, or pineapples
- Cut your fruit into large, bite sized pieces.
- Pierce the middle of your piece of fruit with the sharp end of the skewer. Then push the fruit to the bottom of the skewer, leaving an inch or two for room to hold it. Continue this process, alternating fruits until the skewer is full of fruit.
Which fruit to use for fruit skewers
For fruit skewers or fruit kabobs, you want to choose fruit that can hold its shape after being pierced with the skewer. Fruits like apples, bananas, pineapples, grapes, and blueberries are perfect because they stay on the skewer but are easy to remove. Raspberries or watermelon or other fragile fruits might not hold up well.
My favorite fruits on these skewers were the bananas and the apples because they tasted amazing with the dip. So did the strawberries and blueberries! Citrus fruits or pineapple might not taste as good with a peanut butter dip, but you could give it a try!
How to make yogurt peanut butter dip
- Choose your peanut butter: Do you want a bit of crunch or completely smooth? I actually used crunchy peanut butter because I liked the tiny bits of crunch I got with each bite. But creamy peanut butter might be better for very young children. Also, you want a little bit of salt in this dip to enhance the flavor. If you have unsalted peanut butter in your pantry, just add a tiny pinch of salt to the dip.
- Choose your yogurt: You'll want to use plain yogurt so that the dip isn't too sweet. I chose plain, full-fat yogurt so that it was nice and thick, but Greek yogurt would also be a great option!
- Decide on how much sweetener and what kind: I use 1 tablespoon of honey and it is sweet enough for me. If you'd like it a little sweeter, add more honey. Or, if you aren't a honey fan, use maple syrup.
- Stir it all together! Stir the peanut butter, the yogurt, the honey or maple syrup, and the cinnamon together until everything is nice and smooth.
