Red, White, and Blue Fruit Skewers with Cheesecake Yogurt Dip
These skewers make an attractive summertime dessert that kids love! Recipe courtesy of skinnytaste.com.
Double the fruit and halve the cake for an even lighter dessert. Substitute raspberries, red grapes, and other fruits as desired.
For the cheesecake dipping sauce:
4 ounces 1/3 less fat cream cheese (Neufchatel), softened
1 cup fat free Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ cup sugar
For the skewers:
14 ounces angel food cake, cut into 1-inch cubes
72-84 medium strawberries (about 3 ½ pounds), stems removed
1 pint blueberries
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. Refrigerate skewers and dip until ready to eat.
