  • A medium-sized box of blueberries (you need 49 strawberr9es)
  • 4 bananas (you need 32 sliced rounds)
  • 13 Wooden skewers



  1. Slice the bananas in rounds thick enough to skew onto the wooden skewer
  2. Slice the strawberries in halves
  3. Line up your 13 skewers on a serving plate, preferably festive!
  4. Skewer one: 7 blueberries, then one banana, one strawberry, another banana, and another strawberry
  5. Repeat for 6 more skewers. Your first 7 will have this pattern and include blueberries
  6. For skewers 8-13, begin with a strawberry and alternate strawberry and banana. You should have 4 strawberry halves on each separated by three banana rounds

And voila! A refreshing and patriotic snack that is easy but adds to the decor of any celebration.
