Recipe: Fresh fruit kebabs with lemon lime dip

Updated: 05-01-2010

Dietitian's tip: These kebabs work well with any type of fruit, including more exotic types such as star fruit, kumquats or prickly pears. To prevent fruit from browning, dip in pineapple or orange juice.


Serves: 2

  • 4 ounces low-fat, sugar-free lemon yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 4 to 6 pineapple chunks
  • 4 to 6 strawberries
  • 1 kiwi, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 banana, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 4 to 6 red grapes
  • 4 wooden skewers


In a small bowl, whisk together the yogurt, lime juice and lime zest. Cover and refrigerate until needed.

Thread 1 of each fruit onto the skewer. Repeat with the other skewers until the fruit is gone. Serve with the lemon lime dip.
