Summer Fun!

Fruit Kabobs and yogurt dip- These kabobs are tasty, year round snack or dessert.  All types of fruits are packed with beneficial phytochemicals (Plant chemicals) that can help lower your risk of heart disease, cancer, and other diseases.  Try plain yogurt with a dash of vanilla and sugar substitute.  It’s higher in calcium than flavored varieties.

Ingredients:

3 cups cut or small whole mixed fruit (melon, berries, peaches, nectarines and/or plums in the summer; pears and apples in the fall; grapefruit, oranges, tangerines, and/or kiwi fruit in the winter)

8 wooden or metal skewers

3 cups aspartame-sweetened or  plain fat-free yogurt

1 tsp vanilla

sugar substitute (optional)

 

Method:

  1. Thread the fruit onto the skewers, alternating different types of fruit.
  2. If using plain yogurt, flavor with vanilla and sugar substitute.  Serve 2 skewers to each person, along with 3/4 cup of yogurt for dunking or spooning over the fruit.
