Watermelon-and-Kiwi Skewers with Starry Strawberry Cream

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.

Cooking Light JULY 2000

  • Yield: 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


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.
