Frozen Fruit Skewers

Few treats could be simpler, healthier, or more delicious. These kid friendly snacks use up a whole pineapple and will feed a big crowd. They’re a great poolside dessert that will eventually thaw, yes, but won’t melt all over the flagstones. After you cube the pineapple, put little ones to work by asking them to thread the fruit onto the skewers (we like to use disposable wooden ones which aren’t as pointy as their metal counterparts). Pull them from the freezer a few minutes before serving (about 15 or 20) so they won’t give you brain freezer and they’re easier to sink your teeth into.
