Rainbow Fruit Skewers with Yogurt Fruit Dip



A healthy snack or dessert for kids and adults alike!

Who doesn't like rainbows, they have a way of bringing out my inner child and making me smile. The pot at the end of this rainbow is quite a treasure, a simple dip made from Greek yogurt and honey, yum!

Serve them at parties, picnics, breakfast or as an after dinner treat. Use whatever fruit is in season anytime of the year!

  3. I make this "dip" all of the time. Orange Blossom honey is my favorite and gives it such a fruity taste.

  8. I love this rainbow idea! Another great mix-in for vanilla yogurt to use as a fruit dip is creamy peanut butter. About 2 teaspoons for every cup of yogurt. It's especially good to use for dipping bananas & apples. Yum!

  18. Gina - I did something very similar for a small New Year's Eve party to use as a stirrer/decoration for Skinny Rum Punch. (My teenage son found them in the fridge pre-party and I ended up with a number of empty skewers.) Lovely idea. Deborah

  20. Love your website! These looks great and I am going to make them for my daughters 1st Birthday. So far, your recipes have helped me lose 35 pounds. Just made a hybrid of your eggplant parm and lasagna roll-ups last night. What site do you use to figure out the calories, fat and carbs of each of your meals?

  28. Another good idea with the dip if you want a different flavor is to mix in sugar free, fat free jello mix into the yogurt. I used vanilla cheesecake flavor and it was amazing!!

  29. Love how easy this is and super healthy too!

    I like a simple dip made from plain yogurt, fresh lemon juice and honey. Have you ever tried this? Really good!
