During the summer, there are a few holidays we pull out all the stops with the red, white and blue. We learn about what these holidays are really about, then we celebrate with family or friends and enjoy the extra day off or two. I always try to come up with fun and interesting ideas using those great colors and this year on the fourth of July, I surprised my little ones with a very patriotic healthy snack. 🙂 This snack and any fun touches you might want to add can be a Memorial Day, 4th of July or Labor Day treat…or just anytime you are feeling patriotic!
Have a safe and fun Labor Day!
Fruit Kabobs with Cheesecake Dip
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup Low Fat Vanilla Greek Yogurt
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1-2 tblsp honey, optional
With an electric mixer on medium speed, mix cream cheese and yogurt until smooth and creamy. Add vanilla. Mix on low until just combined. Taste for sweetness and consistency. If it is too thick for your preference, add another 1/4 cup greek yogurt. If it is not sweet enough, add honey, 1 tblsp at a time until desired taste is achieved. Mix until whipped and fluffy. Serve with fruit, graham crackers or pretzels.
Skewer your favorite combinations of fruit on a wooden skewer stick. Serve with cheesecake dip or eat on its own!
