Fruit Kebabs with Mango and Yogurt Sauce

These mixed fresh fruit kebabs make an attractive and healthy dessert.  I supposed this is quite similar to fruit Fondue but served cold and healthier using yogurt sauce instead of rich chocolate sauce.  (good for a "weight-watcher" like me ... hee.. hee)

Pretty simple and easy to make ... so colourful, appetizing and attractive to guests if you're having some fun fruity party.

Recipe adapted from the cookbook "Desserts All Around The Year" by Martha Day.

Fruit Kebabs with Mango and Yogurt Sauce
Serves 4
120g Strawberries - hulled and cut in halves for bigger ones
2 large Bananas - cut bite-sized
1/2 Mango - peeled, stoned and cubed
2 Kiwi Fruit - peeled and cubed

(Feel free to adjust the quantity and to use your preferred fruits to make your kebabs : pineapple, apple, papaya, star-fruit etc.)

For the sauce
120ml fresh mango puree - peeled and pitted mango
120ml thick plain yogurt  (I used low-fat yogurt mango & peach flavour)
1 teaspoon caster sugar
Few drops of vanilla essence
1 teaspoon finely chopped mint leaves (omitted as don't have any in the fridge)

Method :
1. To make the sauce, beat together the mango puree, yogurt, sugar and vanilla with an electric mixer.

2. Stir in the chopped mint. Cover the sauce and place in the fridge until required.

3. Thread the prepared fruit on a 6 inch wooden skewers,  alternating the fruits.

4. Arrange the kebabs on a large serving tray with the mango and yogurt sauce in the center.

Well, this is so refreshing and fun dipping with the sauce. They liked it so much that we had another round the next day since we still have the fruits. But I only threaded half the quantity with skewers as they couldn't wait for all the fruit skewers to be completed  .... they just scooped the sauce onto the cut fruits and munch ... lol ^-^!

Enjoy ! Have a fun dipping fruity day and a great weekend !
