Pine-Tree Fruit Kabobs Recipe

Pine-Tree Fruit Kabobs

The "pine tree" here is a pineapple laden with colorful fruit-kabob branches.


  • Large pineapple
  • Small skewers (we used 50 6-inch bamboo skewers)
  • Assorted fresh fruit (we used grapes, strawberries, star fruit, and honeydew)


  1. To make the tree trunk, remove the top and cut 1 inch off of the bottom of a large pineapple, then peel it (all a parent's job).
  2. On the skewers, thread three to five pieces of assorted fresh fruits.
  3. Starting at the bottom, insert the skewers into the pineapple at a slight angle. Top the tree with skewered slices of star fruit. After the branches are eaten, don't forget to slice up the tree trunk.
