ALOHA AGAIN! This isn’t really a Guest Post, since Miss Shutterbean is a part of the Kiddo family, but the gracious and sassy Tracy whipped together a most scrumptious (and EASY!) snackers for you guys. It’s so warm and balmy over here I have been craving this in a BIG WAY! Take it away Tracy!
Hello! Shutterbean here. I just gotta say that I’m sooo jealous of Alix and her Hawaiian trip! I want to be drinkingÂ pina coladasÂ in the sun with a stack of trashy magazines right now! Mmmmmm Hawaii! Today I’ve got pineapple on the brain. Must be all that Hawaiian daydreaming! I’ve whipped up a little snack inspired by Alix’s getaway for you and your kiddos! Â Won’t you join me?
Isn’t it funny how you can remember certain food related things from your childhood? When I was little, I was aÂ Brownie. Remember Girl Scouts?? My mom was the den mother and she was in charge of bringing healthy/delicious snacks for us girls every week.Â One week she made fruit kebabs with a tastyÂ lime yogurt dip and I was totally stupefied. I had no idea that my mom had this in herÂ bag of tricksÂ since I never had it at home before! I remember demolishing a few sticks and my mom being proud! I still havenâ€™t forgotten that momentâ€¦
So letâ€™s talk about snacks & kids for a second. Fruit on a stick! Itâ€™s a brilliant idea isnâ€™t it? Itâ€™s fun, portable and the combinations are endless! Your little one doesnâ€™t like pineapples but loves grapes? Sub them! Not sure if they will actually like them? Have them help you with a batch! Itâ€™s fun piercing fruit with sticks! Just be careful with the sharp pointy edges.
Let’s get started with our Lime Yogurt Dip! Â Here it is!
Gather your simple ingredients. Yogurt, brown sugar, lime zest & lime juice.
We’re having an ingredient party and you’re invited!
Mix the dip together and take a little sample…
I guarantee these fruit kebabs will be a treat your kids never forget!
Lime Yogurt Dip:
– 1 1/2 cups plain Greek yogurt
– 3 tablespoons brown sugar (use more if you want it sweeter)
– A small squeeze of lime juice
– 1/4 teaspoon lime zest
Stir all of the ingredients together in a small bowl. Let mixture sit for 5 minutes and then serve with your fruit kebabs!
