Ingredients

  • 1 cup Plain Greek yogurt nonfat, 2%, or regular
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons honey or to taste (can substitute non calorie sweetener)
  • 1 pound mixed cut fruit use the 1 pound bowl of precut fruit and berries
  • 8 bamboo skewers

Instructions

  • Line a strainer with cheesecloth, and pour the Greek yogurt into the cheesecloth. Wrap it lightly into a ball, and set the strainer over a bowl to catch the liquid that will drain out. Set it in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours.
  • When you're ready to make the fruit dip, discard any liquid that has drained from the yogurt (or use it in a smoothie - it's whey protein). Place the yogurt in a mixing bowl.
  • Add a pinch of sea salt, the vanilla, and honey to taste. Stir well to combine.
  • Thread the fruit onto 8 skewers. If you're arranging these around a potted plant, leave some room at the bottom of each skewer to stick it into the soil.
  • Serve the fruit skewers with the Cream Cheese Fruit Dip
