This was in the Chicago Sun-Times food section, and I thought it sounded cute so I clipped it. When my 3 and 4-year-old cousins came over and I wanted to whip up something nice but healthy for them, I remembered this. They loved it! I used whatever fruits I had on hand from the list, and they really seemed to like the sauce. :)

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. To make kebabs, wash and clean fruit.
  2. Cut large fruit into bite-sized pieces.
  3. Thread different kinds of fruit on six-inch skewers, alternating between fresh and dried fruit (if using) when making kebabs.
  4. If not serving right away, place in a square or rectangular container.
  5. To prevent browning, sprinkle apples, pears, bananas, fresh peaches, or nectarines with a little lemon juice.
  6. To make dip, add honey or maple syrup and a dash or two of cinnamon (or to taste) to vanilla yogurt.
  7. Mix until combined.
  8. If not serving right away, store in a small, leak-proof container.
  9. Serve with kebabs.

I prepared this for adults so we didn't make kebabs, just set out a tray of prepared fruits with cocktail forks, but the simple dipping sauce really made the dish! My daughter loved that all by itself! (I used cherry vanilla yogurt). While I would definitely use a variety of fruits, everyone agreed that the dip went best with the strawberries...so just strawberries and dip would make a refreshing snack.
