About Tri Colour Fruit Skewers

These fruit skewers or fruit kebabs are also an incredible way to add some natural sweetness to your diet. All three fruits used in this recipe are all naturally sweet, so there is no need to add any sweetener. But if you fancy sweeter fruit skewers then you can further enhance the sweetness with the addition of honey.  

I suggest adding honey over other sweeteners because it adds a touch of sweetness without overpowering the natural flavors of the fruits.

The skewers are easy to make and require minimal preparation. Simply wash and cut the fruits, thread them onto skewers, and done! 

Plus, they are perfect for any occasion. Try this recipe out and enjoy the taste of summer all year round.

Grilled Tri-colour Fruit Skewers

I simply serve them chilled without grilling. If you want to go a step further, then you can also grill these tri-colour fruit skewers in a grill pan. The heat from the grill slightly melts the fruits, making them even more luscious and mouth-watering. 

The grill marks on the fruits add a nice smoky flavor and a slight char that further intensifies the delectable flavors of the fruits. Grilled fruit skewers taste best when served warm, straight off the grill.

Variations

Tri colour fruit skewers are a versatile recipe that can be easily adapted to suit your taste preferences. Here are a few variations to help you make the perfect fruit kebabs:

Mix and match your fruits: This is a tri-colour fruit kebab recipe, so I used only 3 fruits. Here, you can add as many fruits as you want. Any combination of fruits can be used here. Some popular options include watermelon, mangoes, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, apples, peaches, cantaloupe, nectarines, grapes, and kiwi.

Add some protein: You can make these tri colour fruit skewers more filling and protein-rich by adding some grilled protein such as tofu, paneer, halloumi, or even chicken.

Storage suggestion

To store, place cut fruits in separate containers in the fridge. You can keep fruits for up to 1 day. When you want to eat, thread them and enjoy. You can also store threaded fruit skewers for up to 1 day. 

Fruit skewers should be stored in the refrigerator to keep them cool and prevent them from spoiling. Keep them in an airtight container or wrap them in plastic wrap to prevent them from drying out. After 1 day, they will start to lose their freshness and flavor.

Expert tips and tricks to make the best Tri Colour Fruit Skewers

  1. Marinate your fruits – You can either skew the fresh fruits right after cutting or to add more flavor to your fruit kebabs, you can marinate them for about 30 minutes. To make marinade, make a mixture of lemon juice, honey, and spices such as cinnamon or nutmeg. Coat the fresh fruits in this mixture and marinate for about 30 minutes. Marinated fruit skewers taste best when you serve them warm after grilling. But there is no harm in serving them without grilling either. 

  2. Add some herbs – To brighten the flavors, you can also thread fresh herbs such as mint or basil along with the fresh fruits. The addition of fresh herbs would surely add some freshness and flavor to your fruit kebabs.

  3. Drizzle with chocolate – To make your fruit kebabs more indulgent, you can drizzle some melted chocolate over them before serving.

  4. Serve with a dip – I like to serve these tri colour skewers with a dip such as strawberry cheesecake dip, strawberry shrikhand, yogurt dip, or Nutella. You can also use tahini, peanut butter, or even fruit flavored sweetened yogurt as a dip.

  5. Make them ahead of time – These Fruit skewers are great for a party. If you’re planning to serve fruit skewers for kebabs at a party or get-together, then you can also make fruit skewers ahead of time. They can be made a day in advance and store them in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
