How to Make Rainbow Fruit Skewers With Yogurt Dip

Rainbow Fruit Skewers With Yogurt Dip

Prep Time 30 minutes

I love to serve fruit as a party treat. Fruit is sweet, fruit is fun and fruit are colorful! 

This year, when my daughter asked for a "rainbow party", making fruit skewers was the first idea that was added to the party menu. This time, they will have a drizzle of the sweeter version of the yogurt fruit dip that we enjoy at home. 

Here is an easy way to make rainbow skewers with a cinnamon vanilla yogurt fruit dip that your guests (big and small) will love.

What you'll need

  • Rainbow fruit skewers
  • Red fruit (cubed watermelon, rasperries, or strawberries)
  • Orange fruit (cubed cantaloupe or oranges)
  • Yellow fruit (cubed pineapple or mango)
  • Green fruit (cubed green cantaloupe or kiwi)
  • Blue fruit (blackberries or blueberries)
  • Purple fruit (red grapes)
  • Yogurt fruit dip
  • 1 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon powered cinnamon

Helpful Tip:

Do not give fruit on a skewer to small children. Remove the fruit from the stick and serve it to them on a plate.


To save time: Buy pre-cut fruit

To save money: Peel and cut the fruit at home

How to make it

  1. Arrange the fruit in the skewers in the order of the colors of the rainbow: Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple. Make sure the pointy tip of the skewer is covered by fruit.
  2. In a small bowl mix the vanilla yogurt, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract and cinnamon and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  3. When serving time comes around, drizzle the fruit skewers with the cinnamon vanilla yogurt dip and leave some in a bowl next to the rainbow fruit skewer display for guests to add to their plates.
