Looking for an easy, delicious, and healthy snack? These Fruit Kabobs with Cream Cheese Dip are always a hit. Made with fresh fruit and cheese, then served with an easy fruit dip, these Kabobs make a colorful and tasty party treat. This is an easy appetizer to make and serve – perfect for summer get-togethers! The fresh fruit also pairs very nicely with the smooth, chocolate flavor cream cheese dip.
The last day of school was Thursday for the kids. I have to admit that I was just as happy as they were that it was over! I always like to make them a special treat on their final day like Bird’s Nest Cookies or Triple Berry No Churn Ice Cream, but I was super short on time. In fact, I did not even have time to get to the store, so I had to use what I had on hand.
Fortunately, there was a lot of fresh fruit in the refrigerator. So, I put together this very simple, but tasty treat: Fruit Kebabs with Cream Cheese Dressing. These easy to make fruit on skewers were a huge hit with my daughter and my son loved the cocoa cream cheese fruit dip that I made to go with them!

How do I make the Fruit Kabobs with Cream Cheese Dip?
There are just two simple steps to making this delicious dessert treat.
Step 1: Make the Kabobs
Rinse and dry the strawberries, grapes and blueberries. Cut the strawberries in half, length wise. Spear a grape to start each kabob. Then, spear on additional grapes, strawberries, blueberries and cheese cubes as desired. Spear another grape at the end to ensure that the fruit does not fall off and to protect the spear point. Store in the fridge until ready to serve.
Step 2: Make the Cocoa Cream Cheese Fruit Dip
In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese and sour cream with an electric mixer until smooth. Mix in the cocoa and brown sugar until well combined. Refrigerate until ready to serve with the fruit kabobs for dipping.
How long do Fruit Kabobs keep and how should I store them?
Fruit Kabobs can keep up to 2 days in the fridge, depending on the freshness of the fruit used. They should be stored in an air-tight container.
How long does the Cocoa Cream Cheese Dip keep and how should I store it?
The Cocoa Cream Cheese Dip will keep for up to 4 days in the fridge. It should be covered with plastic wrap or put in an air-tight container. It is not recommended to freeze this type of dip.
Can I use frozen fruits to make these Kabobs?
Frozen fruits are typically softer than fresh fruits when thawed and will not work for this Fruit Kabob recipe.
Can I use different fresh fruits like banana slices on my Kabobs?
Feel free to substitute or add in other kinds of fruit to match your preferences. Apple and banana slices, raspberries and blackberries are great options.
