There’s no need to pack on the calories for Valentine’s Day. Make these Valentine Fruit Skewers.

You can serve them at breakfast, or for snacking.

RECIPE: VALENTINE HEART FRUIT SKEWERS

Ingredients

Use whatever fruit appeals to you as you head down the produce aisle.

While February isn’t the height of fruit options, we found very good:

  • Cantaloupe
  • Kiwi
  • Pineapple
  • Strawberries
  • Watermelon
  •  
    Plus

  • Blueberries for “spacers” (see photo)
  • Heart-shaped cookie cutter
  • Skewers, 10-12 inches long
  • Optional: mint leaves
  • Optional dip: yogurt of choice
  •   Valentine Fruit Skewers Kabobs

    For breakfast, snack or dessert: hearts of cantaloupe, kiwi, pineapple, strawberries and watermelon (photo courtesy My Morning Moxie).

     
    Preparation

    1. SLICE all the fruit except strawberries into half-inch or thicker slices. Use the cookie cutter to stamp out heart shapes. Save the trimmings for yogurt or cottage cheese.

    2. SLICE the strawberries in half; they make natural heart shapes.

    3. ARRANGE the fruit on skewers with a blueberry spacer in between. If you want a fancier appearance, thread two small mint leaves on each skewer. Serve plain or with ramekins of yogurt.
