1 1/2 cups vanilla low-fat yogurt
1 1/2 tablespoons flaked coconut
1 1/2 tablespoons low-sugar orange marmalade
1 medium-size Red Delicious apple
1 medium pear
1 tablespoon lemon juice
20 (1-inch) fresh pineapple chunks
20 seedless green or red grapes
20 fresh strawberries, capped


1. Combine first 3 ingredients; cover and chill.

2. Core apple and pear; cut each into 20 bite-size pieces. Toss apple and pear pieces with lemon juice.

3. Thread fruit alternately onto 20 (6-inch) wooden skewers. Serve kabobs with coconut dressing.

Note: Since coconut is a plant food, it contains no cholesterol. However, coconut is very high in fat, and the fat is mostly saturated, which increases blood cholesterol. If you're a coconut lover, don't give it up altogether; enjoy it in very small amounts as in the recipe above.
