Holiday Fruit Kabobs & Pomegranate Dip

by Jodie Fitz

Great party food (or just for a yummy, fun snack).

1 Honeydew Melon

8-10 Kiwi

1 Pineapple

1 pomegranate

6 oz. Greek vanilla yogurt

6 oz. low fat vanilla yogurt

1 tablespoon pomegranate juice

Rinse the outside of the honeydew melon. Cut it in half, remove the seeds. Cut the halves into half and remove the rind. Use a small round cookie cutter or a large circle fondant cutter to create circle pieces of honeydew melon.

Rinse the kiwis. Cut off the ends of each kiwi. Peel them. Slice them into circles.

Rinse the pineapple. Remove the top and bottom of the pineapple. Cut it into slices and use a small star cookie cutter or large fondant cutter to create yellow pineapple stars. Note: Cheat and buy already cored pineapple at your Price Chopper/Market 32 Supermarket.

Rinse the pomegranate. Remove the seeds from the pomegranate.

Fold together the Greek vanilla yogurt, the low fat vanilla yogurt and the pomegranate juice. Stir in ¼ cup of pomegranate seeds and top off the dip with 2 tablespoons of pomegranate seeds.

Serve the honeydew melon circles, the cut kiwi and the pineapple stars in individual bowls with skewers available so that the kids can create their own fruit tree kabob and then dip it in the pomegranate dip.

Looking for other Holiday Fruit Kabobs?  Check out my whimsical Fruit trees.  They are served with a super simple snow dip.  They are equally delicious and festively fun.  I personally think they look like a tree you’d find in Who-ville.  We have served these at our viewing of The Grinch before and they’re always a big kid/family hit.
