  • TotalTime: 25 Mins

Ingredient

  1. For the Fruit Kebabs:
  2. 1 pineapple
  3. 1 honeydew melon
  4. Grapes
  5. 1 banana
  6. 12 strawberries
  7. For the Vanilla Lime Yogurt Dip:
  8. 1 cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt
  9. 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  10. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  11. 1 lime (zested)

Instruction

  1. Gather the fruit.
  2. Remove the skin from the pineapple and honeydew melon with a sharp knife while leaving the fruit intact.  
  3. Slice the pineapple lengthwise into planks until you get to the hard core. Turn the pineapple around and slice lengthwise from the other side as well. You should have about 4 planks.
  4. Cut the honeydew melon lengthwise leaving the seeds in the center. Choose a firmer honeydew melon so that it won't squish too much when you are cutting it. 
  5. Use a bunny cookie cutter to cut out shapes from the planks of fruit. Use a knife to cut around the cookie cutter for the pineapple as it might be hard to cut all the way through with the cookie cutter. 
  6. Slice the banana and strawberries into rounds. Only use the medium-sized pieces of the strawberry rounds. (All other pieces, feel free to eat. We won't tell!)
  7. Skewer one animal shape onto a skewer first and push it all the way to the top of the skewer. Then follow with two grapes, a slice of banana, a slice of strawberry, and two more grapes. Or come up with your own pattern for the fruit. Repeat making the kebabs with the remaining fruit.
  8. Gather the ingredients for the dipping sauce.
  9. Whisk together the Greek yogurt, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and lime zest in a small bowl until completely combined. 
  10. Serve the fruit kebabs with the Greek yogurt dip on the side. You can also drizzle it over the fruit right before you are ready to serve. Or, feel free to drizzle it over the top and then freeze them for a frosty fruit treat! The choice is yours!
