These strawberry shortcake kabobs, like many recipes from MOMables school lunch menus, includes fresh fruit and tastes delicious!
One of my favorite things about summer is the gorgeous looking produce that accompanies it. During the winter months, fresh produce doesn’t always look so “fresh”.
Fortunately, by summertime the produce aisles at grocery stores are popping with bright colors of luscious looking produce. One of my personal favorite summertime fruits- strawberries!
What I like even better than getting them at the grocery store is finding a strawberry farm and picking my own with my family. Each year we make a family affair out of it and the outing always promises a good time for all.
I love picking our own strawberries for several reasons:
1) The freshness, juiciness and flavor of the strawberries cannot be beat!
2) It shows my kids the origin of one of their favorite foods. So often these days, I feel it’s easy for kids to think that food just magically appears on grocery shelves. Strawberry picking gets them out in a field and teaches them about food and gives them more of an appreciation for the people that work hard to bring such food items to our tabletop.
So whether you pick your own strawberries or get them from the grocery store, embrace the season and make as many recipes using strawberries as possible…like these strawberry cake kabobs for example. Don’t forget to check out the healthier pound cake recipe below!
They are super easy to whip up and are the perfect thing to bring to a summer BBQ or Fourth of July celebration. Bonus: your kids can skewer them!
If you’re making them for adults, make larger portions and thread the ingredients onto a skewer. If you’re making them for kids, put them on a popsicle stick to ensure they won’t poke themselves. These kabobs will go great as a treat with one of our lunches.
