Christmas Grinch Fruit Skewers

Sharing is caring!

These Christmas Grinch fruit skewers, also known as grape Grinches, Grinch skewers, Grinch kabobs and Christmas skewers, are super easy to make, taste delicious and look fun and festive. Children and adults both love this cute Christmas fruit idea.

Fruit Grinch hats are a delicious way to balance all the usual sugary Christmas recipes with a refreshing, delicious and nutritious cute Christmas snack. Strawberries are at their peak sweetness and ripeness in Australia during the Christmas season and thus tasting their best at this time of year.

These healthy Grinch treats are our favourite Grinch themed snacks to make. Assembling Grinch fruit sticks each December is a fun Christmas activity my kids always look forward to. They love threading the fruit onto the toothpicks.

Make a Grinch fruit platter of these skewers for your next Christmas party and watch the smiles of delight as your guests enjoy them. They are fun to eat while watching The Grinch movie too.

Other healthy festive treats you may enjoy to make are Watermelon Christmas Trees and Reindeer Christmas Pears. I also love creating a Strawberry Christmas Tree as a spectacular edible Christmas table centrepiece each year.

Christmas Skewers Recipe Tips

Make sure your strawberries are ripe for maximum flavour and sweetness.

Drizzle some lemon onto the banana slices to prevent them from going brown.

If you don’t like bananas you can cut a large marshmallow into thirds and use a round marshmallow slice instead of a banana slice.

These Christmas fruit skewers are best eaten as soon after making them as possible.
