    4th of July Fruit Kabobs with watermelon, blueberries, and mozzarella balls.

    Fruit Kabobs with watermelon, blueberries, and mozzarella balls are a fun and healthy Fourth of July snack. They are a great way to keep your kids busy in the kitchen. They’ll love using a melon baller to make balls of watermelon and threading the ingredients on the skewers will keep them entertained while you get other things done.

    These fruit kabobs are perfectly delicious as is, but you can amp up the flavor by adding some fresh mint, a sprinkle or salt, and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar. They are a cool and refreshing snack to munch on that will still leave you with plenty of room for burgers and pie later on.

    They may be pretty but I don’t think they taste nearly as good as your 4th of July kabobs with vanilla pudding dip :)

    Delicious and beautiful! We make these but without the mozzarella balls, adding different types of seedless grapes and then freeze them. The kids love them frozen!

    These kabobs are gorgeous! I love how you went for a twist to blueberries and strawberries and used watermelon! With the cheese and the contrast in flavours and the mint and balsamic vinegar I can imagine how amazing they are! Pinning these!
