A refreshing fruit and yogurt dessert

Desserts are difficult to come up with if you’re on a low-salt, low-sugar, low-fat diet since one of those evil three, and more often all three, are in the most sumptuous cakes, pastries and other desserts.

I’ve taken to serving fruit or low-fat frozen yogurt for dessert. Recently I came across a dessert offering than combines those in a great presentation.

Fruit Skewers with yogurt dip could be a refreshing dessert.

Check this recipe for fruit sewers with yogurt dip that I found on the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute site, of all places.

It uses strawberries, pineapples, orange slices and blackberries on skewers and calls for creating a yogurt dip from fat-free yogurt, crushed strawberries, vanilla and honey.

I’d question the need for honey, especially for those watching sugar content, I think the yogurt would stand on its own taste-wise, but I’m planning to try this soon and will post an update then.

The recipe calls it an appetizer, I’d add a few more skewers per guest (bringing the per person total to perhaps four or five) to make it a full-fledged dessert.

If you try it first, let me know how it turned out.
