  • Kiwi
  • Pineapple
  • Strawberries
  • Watermelon
  •  
    Plus

  • Blueberries for “spacers” (see photo)

    Valentine Fruit Skewers Kabobs

    For breakfast, snack or dessert: hearts of cantaloupe, kiwi, pineapple, strawberries and watermelon (photo courtesy My Morning Moxie).

     
    Preparation

    1. SLICE all the fruit except strawberries into half-inch or thicker slices. Use the cookie cutter to stamp out heart shapes. Save the trimmings for yogurt or cottage cheese.

    2. SLICE the strawberries in half; they make natural heart shapes.

    3. ARRANGE the fruit on skewers with a blueberry spacer in between. If you want a fancier appearance, thread two small mint leaves on each skewer. Serve plain or with ramekins of yogurt.
