Happy July everyone! Summer sure is flying by with our entrance into July, but with the beginning of this month comes the excitement of the Fourth. I can already smell the bbq’s and delicious fresh fruit. As I am sure most of you will be attending Fourth of July parties or just keeping it small with the family in the backyard I wanted to share with you an easy and of course healthy dessert recipe to share with family and friends for this holiday! It is Red, White, and Blue Fruit Skewers with Cheesecake Yogurt dip.
For the cheesecake dipping sauce:
- 4 oz 1/3 less fat cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup fat free Greek yogurt
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 cup raw sugar
For the skewers:
- 14 oz angel food cake, cut about 1-inch cubes
- 72-84 medium strawberries (about 3.5 lbs) stems removed
- 1 pint blueberries
- 24 to 28 skewers
In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese with yogurt, vanilla and sugar. Mix well until sugar dissolves; set aside
Thread 3 strawberries and 2 cubes of cake onto each skewer, alternating between strawberries and cake. Finish each skewer with 3 blueberries. Place finished skewers on a platter and refrigerate until ready to eat.
Serving size: 1 skewer, 1tbsp dip
makes about 24-28 skewers
Enjoy this festive and healthy dessert on your Fourth of July!
