The weather is gorgeous – it feels as though summer has arrived early! And with summer comes icy delicious treats. Cam and Bert, our little mice from London’s Splendid Square Mile have mastered the art of making tiny frozen fruit kebabs, and they’re happy to share their secret with you. So read on to find something you can make that everyone’s going to love!
You will need
Fruit – almost anything works!
Use whole – smaller strawberries, baby orange segments, blueberries, raspberries, grapes
Cut in half: big orange segments, large strawberries
Cut into chunks: apple, pineapple, pear, banana, mango, kiwi melon
Plastic tray of some sort –lids from icecream cartons are ideal.
Cocktail sticks – if you don’t have any you can just lay the fruit on the trays
What to do
First of all, wash your hands.
Assemble the fruit you are going to use.
Cut the fruit into pieces about the size of a raspberry. (You may need an adult to do the chopping for you.) If you’ve got different coloured fruit, that’s brilliant.
Thread them one at a time onto cocktail sticks – be careful not to poke your hand with the cocktail stick! Try to use a mix of colours on each stick, and be sure to leave space for holding them.
Pop them on the trays and carefully put them in the freezer. They will probably take about two hours to freeze.
They are ready to take out and enjoy!
Please send us a picture or two of your kebabs – we love seeing what you’ve been up to. You can tweet them to @StepOutsideLDN, go to our Facebook page (Step Outside Guides) or email them to us at stepoutsideguides.com. Thank you.
