Welcome to Family Friendly Fridays!  Wow, what a beautiful week we have had here in Wisconsin!  The weather is warming up quite nicely and I am itching to get my grill out!  

So with the help of my girls, we decided to do a grilling recipe that is simple and absolutely delicious! What is it you ask?  Well….Grilled Fruit Kabobs.  

Grilling Fruit Kabobs

If you have children who don’t like vegetables or fruits, this is the perfect way to involve them in making a dish that they will be proud of.

The first thing you want to do is get some fresh organic fruit.  Anything goes!  We used grapes, strawberries, bananas, pears, pineapple and apples and next time I think I will add some peaches and plums into the mix!

Fresh Fruit

Now here is the fun part! :-)   Have your kids put the cut up pieces of fruit onto metal or wooden skewers (if using wooden skewers, soak in water so they don’t catch on fire on the grill).

Preheat your grill on medium low heat.  Lightly grease the grill.  

In a small saucepan over low heat melt 2 tablespoons of raw honey with 1 tablespoon of grass fed butter.  

Place skewers onto the grill and baste them with the honey mixture.  Cook for 5 minutes and then turn and cook for 3-5 more minutes.  Baste throughout the entire cooking time.  

Serve warm over some homemade ice cream or dip this fruit in my yummy fruit dip!
