Red White and Blue Fruit Skewers with Cheesecake Yogurt Dip

I’m not sure what it is about putting fruit on sticks that makes them so appealing, but my youngest daughter’s eyes lit up when she couldn’t wait to eat them.

I wanted a healthy cheesecake flavored dip so I played around with yogurt, cream cheese, vanilla and sugar, and it was exactly was I was looking for. The strawberries tasted wonderful with this dip, it’s a keeper!

Make Ahead

This will feed a large crowd, you can make the dip the night before, assemble it in the morning, and refrigerate until ready to eat.

Variations

  • You can skip the skewers and just serve the fruit in a bowl with the dip.
  • Use a pound cake or gluten-free cake instead.

  1. This is one of my absolute favorites. I often make it more in a deconstructed way, with the fruit and angels food cake all separate rather than on skewers. My go-to summer desert for the several years since I first tried it!

  2. I cut the recipe in half for a smaller group. Instead of taking the time to make skewers I placed the cake pieces and fruit in a large bowl. Each person could self-serve and top with some of the dip. It worked out so well!

  3. Fabulous dip!! I do not usually change recipes from the onset. However, I did with this one.

    1. I could not find 1/3 less fat cream cheese (my store was out of stock…crazy right??!!) 2. I do not like blueberries, so I used blackberries.

    I ended up using whipped cream cheese. The calorie count per serving is 20 calories less for the whipped cream cheese than the 1/3 less fat cream cheese. I am so glad I used the whipped, because the whipped is lighter (in weight).

    Great recipe. Thanks you for posting!!
