Watermelon-and-Kiwi Skewers with Starry Strawberry Cream
8 servings (serving size: 3 skewers and 2 tablespoons sauce)
3/4 cup sliced strawberries
1/2 cup vanilla low-fat yogurt
1 tablespoon 1/3-less-fat cream cheese
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon powdered sugar
24 (1/2-inch) watermelon balls
2 kiwifruit, each peeled and cut into 12 pieces
How to Make It
Place first 5 ingredients in a blender; process until smooth. Cover and chill.
Thread 1 watermelon piece and 1 kiwi-fruit piece onto each of 24 skewers. Serve with sauce.
Note: To shape the kiwifruit as in the photo, cut a thin vertical slice off both ends of fruit, revealing the flesh. Peel by cutting vertical strips from one end to the other. Cut each kiwifruit lengthwise into quarters. Cut each quarter crosswise into thirds.
