This is a fun and delicious way to eat more fruit and make a healthy or healthier dessert or an exciting snack. The summer fruit sticks I have prepared are raspberry crumble, apple s’mores and banana brittle. Chocolate and fruit are a brilliant combination and kids always love them. These fruit on sticks recipes will be popular with adults too, just serve cold from the fridge.
You can imagine up all kinds of fruit sticks ideas, but I hope my ideas give you a starting point. Use up fruit from the fridge and create recipes, such as, blackberry crumble, mango s’mores etc. Serve alongside more pieces of delicious fresh fruit on a platter for a healthier dessert.
This time of year, I always buy too much fruit. I just can’t resist them! So many types taste at their best in summer and I love them all!
So, these fruit sticks are also a great way to entice your family to help eat up all this goodness before it spoils.

Summer fruit sticks
A delicious and fun way to eat more fruit. Raspberry crumble, apple s'mores and banana brittle recipe ideas.
Prepare the ingredients before you melt your chocolate. First, crush the additions and have them ready in neat piles. Cut your banana, and slice the apples.
Squeeze lemon over the apples to stop them browning.
Prepare your bain-marie (a saucepan of water with a bowl over the top for the chocolate) and bring the water to a simmer.
Place the fruit on the sticks ready. 3 raspberries per stick, 1/2 banana per stick and 3 apple slices per stick.
Melt the milk chocolate gently. I turn the heat off the water completely and let it melt slowly. As soon as some has melted use a teaspoon to attach the raspberries and the apples to the stick. Place them upside down in a bowl to harden.
Once all the chocolate has melted use a teaspoon to wave chocolate all over the raspberries. Then quickly add sprinkles of the crushed butter galettes. Ideally place the fruit sticks in a cake pop holder. Next coat the apples with the remaining milk chocolate, allowing some of the apple to show through. Add on the marshmallows and graham pieces pressing in lightly.
Next gently melt the dark chocolate. Using a spoon cover most of the banana with the melted chocolate and sprinkle over the crushed peanut brittle. Place in the cake pop holder along with the other fruit sticks.
Place in the fridge to set if it's a warm day.
Enjoy your 5 a day in the shade of a beautiful garden with your favourite people.
If the temperatures are high, place the fruit sticks into the fridge to set and serve last minute.
If you do not own a cake pop holder, place them on their side onto a piece of parchment paper.
