Are you the snack mom any time soon, like tomorrow? If so, here is a great snack, which is super easy, AND, if it’s already midnight, you might even have the fixins on hand.
It was the night before our advisory snack day again, and we had nothing that would be desirable for a room full of hungry 16-year old kids. But, we did have some apples and bananas. And, we even had bamboo skewers, (because at some time in my life I needed a few, and they were packaged in a bag of 100!) So, with a late night run to the grocery store to grab strawberries and pineapple cubes, we were prepared for a quick assembling of this sweet (yet, healthy) snack the next morning before school.
Interestingly, it doesn’t take as much fruit as you might guess. For 16 kebabs, I only needed 4 apples. If you want your treats to last until later in the day, (avoiding the brown-fruit dilemma) my secret is a tasty basting marinade made of lemon juice and agave nectar, (or sugar). See our printable recipe page for my basting method and the kinds of fruit I assembled, but you could easily make these with any seasonal fruit that you have on hand … in fact, you could make a different kebab ensemble for every season! Happy Kebabbing.
