Grilled Fruit Kabobs with Coconut Honey Dip

grilled fruit kabobs honey coconut yogurt dip

Hi there! I’m back this month with a fun summer recipe that’s just as healthy as it is delicious-grilled fruit kabobs with coconut honey dip! While fruit kabobs are nothing new, taking them to the grill adds an extra special flavor that’s perfectly complimented by a creamy yogurt dip sweetened by honey and coconut!

Ingredients:

  • fruit of choice
  • 3/4 cup lowfat vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 3 tbsp shredded sweetened coconut

Instructions:

Chop fruit into approximately 1″ pieces. You can choose any kind of fruit you prefer. I used watermelon, cantaloupe, pineapple, banana, and strawberries but some other great options are peaches, plums or mango!

If you are using wooden skewers, soak them in cold water for at least 30 minutes prior to grilling to prevent charring. Thread fruit onto skewers.

how to make fruit kabobs grill

Heat a grill or griddle to high heat.  Carefully place kabobs on grill with tongs and rotate every 1-2 minutes until all sides are grilled. Remove from heat.

In a small bowl combine yogurt, honey and coconut and mix well. (You can also make the dip ahead of time and chill until the kabobs are prepared.)

For entertaining, prepare the kabobs ahead of time and refrigerate until ready to cook.
