Fun Fruit Kabob (Healthy, Kid's Treat)


1 apple
1 banana
1/3 c. red seedless grapes
1/3 c. green seedless grapes
2/3 cup pineapple chunks
1 cup nonfat yogurt
c. dried coconut, shredded
knife (you'll need help from your adult assistant)
2 wooden skewer sticks
large plate


1. Prepare the fruit by washing the grapes, washing the apples and cutting them
into small squares, peeling the bananas and cutting them into chunks, and cutting the pineapple into chunks, if it's fresh. Put the fruit onto a large plate.
2. Spread coconut onto another large plate.
3. Slide pieces of fruit onto the skewer and design your own kabob by putting
as much or as little of whatever fruit you want! Do this until the stick is almost covered from end to end.
4. Hold your kabob at the ends and roll it in the yogurt, so the fruit gets
covered. Then roll it in the coconut.
5. Repeat these steps with another skewer.
