Watermelon-and-Kiwi Skewers with Starry Strawberry Cream

Yield 8 servings (serving size: 3 skewers and 2 tablespoons sauce)
The watermelon and kiwifruit can be cut up one day in advance. Thread the fruit onto skewers a few hours before the party. The strawberry cream is best when prepared only a few hours prior to serving.

Ingredients

  • 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
