Welcome to The Jude and Avi Cooking Show, Episode 2!
In this episode Jude and Avi make a great snack, side dish, or breakfast that kids can make themselves. It’s healthy, and refreshing and the addition of sprinkles makes it super fun! Plus fruit on a stick is way better than just plain old fruit.
Jude and Avi used pineapple, cantaloupe, and bananas in their fruit kabobs, but almost any fruit can be used. Try grapes, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, apples, pears, watermelon, honeydew, clementine sections, peaches, plumbs, kiwi, papaya, etc…
If you don’t want to use sprinkles (which stick best to bananas), try rolling the banana chunks in chopped nuts, coconut flakes, crispy rice cereal, cocoa powder, PB powder, mini chocolate chips, or crushed freeze-dried fruit.
You could even serve these fruit kabobs with a drizzle of melted nut butter, or chocolate, or even dipped in yogurt.
If your kids are older or you feel like making this a fancier dish, try cutting the fruit into shapes with a cookie cutter (melons cut nicely into shapes). Or try arranging the fruit in a rainbow pattern on the skewer (red = strawberry, orange = clementine section, yellow = pineapple chunk, green = kiwi, blue = blueberry, violet = purple grapes). Or use this as an opportunity to teach repeating patterns to little kids (banana, pineapple, cantaloupe, banana, pineapple, cantaloupe…)
The Jude and Avi Cooking Show was created by Jude and Avi with the hopes of sharing some wonderful, healthy recipes with other kids around the world. The recipes are created by Jude and Avi with help from me, their mom. These shows are unscripted, and usually filmed in one take. Here’s to happy, healthy, kids!
