  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 2 peeled ripe mangoes, cut into 1/2-inch-thick cubes (about 24)

How to Make It

  1. Combine the first 5 ingredients (through orange zest) in a blender or food processor; process until blended. Refrigerate at least 20 minutes or until mixture sets.

  2. Thread fruit alternately onto skewers, using 2 pieces of each fruit per skewer. Place skewers in a single layer on a small rimmed baking sheet. Freeze at least 1 hour or until fruit is frozen through. (Once frozen, skewers can be placed in a resealable zip-top plastic bag and kept in the freezer for up to 2 weeks.)

  3. Thaw fruit about 15 minutes before serving. Serve with dip.
