Kabobs are one of the most popular grilling items, especially chicken kabobs, steak kabobs or shrimp skewers. But have you ever tried fruit kabobs? They are life changing!

If you’re looking for an easy side dish to serve at your next BBQ or simply a yummy summer snack, I’ve got you covered with these grilled fruit kabobs. The best thing about them is that you can use whatever fruit you have on hand. Pineapple, watermelon and peaches tend to hold their shape the best, but any fruit would taste delicious. The cinnamon honey glaze is what really takes the grilled fruit over the top! It adds the perfect amount of sweetness.

These fruit kabobs are my favorite to make when it’s just my little family hangout out in the backyard. Some of my favorite nights are when we have absolutely no dinner plans. The kids love running around outside, playing in the sprinklers and swinging on the trees. When the weather is nice out, we’ll be outside for hours. Then before you know it, it’s dinner time and my kids are starving.

How to make grilled fruit kabobs

Basically all you need to do to make these fruit kabobs is chop the fruit into about 2-inch pieces. Then thread the fruit through your skewers. Next, place them on the grill over medium-low heat and cook each side for about 2 to 4 minutes, or until grill marks have started to form.

Remove the kabobs onto the pan and then drizzle the cinnamon honey glaze over the top of the grilled fruit. Then dig in!
