Are you looking for a delicious, fast and portable snack? Look no further because these Caprese skewers are going to blow your mind.
They are not only delicious but also easy. And I.love.easy; but mostly easy and healthy foods!
Skewers are my go-to snack on those days where we have no bread or want something handheld to eat.
Plus, when you are too tired to “make something” or “cook something, ” these will become your go-to solution since you can practically prepare them in your sleep!
Of course, these are great to get the kids to assemble their own snacks or even get them involved in the kitchen.
All you have to do is place all your ingredients on the counter and let them go to town helping you prep.
I like to assemble them together as a family and talk about the game plan for the week. Sofia loves standing by my side while I’m in the kitchen, always taking notes on my new creations. She also loves these because it’s a snack she can pack for herself!
Speaking of snacks, these skewers and 200 others can be found in my cookbook, The Best Homemade Snacks on the Planet.
They are also easy to pack for school lunch by placing 3-4 in a lunchbox along with some leftover pesto, toasted crostinis, and more.
This is the perfect way to use up leftover homemade pesto. And if you are anything like me and make pesto ahead of time and freeze it in ice cube trays, just pop a single ice cube in the lunchbox, and it’s the perfect portion for this meal.
Other skewer ideas to mix and match along with these in the lunchbox are with fruit salad leftover, often including pineapple, strawberries, and even avocados. Yes, because avocados on everything!
See? What did I tell you; skewers are super easy and perfect for an after school (or office) snack and even for lunch!
They are practically a zero mess food and 100% portable. Don’t you just love those quick and fresh snacks? I know I do.
