Rainbow Fruit Skewers with Greek Yogurt Honey Lime Sauce

Hi guys!

With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to share some rainbow themed recipes.  Sure you can just eat green for the holiday, but it’s a lot more fun to dive into a rainbow! These fruit skewers with dip are perfect for a festive snack or even a party.

How to make Rainbow Fruit Skewers with Dip…

My Rainbow Fruit Skewers are such a simple recipe.  If you are short on time, go for some of the pre-cut fruit in the produce department.  Or save the extra money and cut it yourself.  Either way it’s delicious.

If you are a fruit-a-holic like myself you’ll love the sweet taste and burst of natural sweetness in the fruit.  They are great for a summer party or even your St. Patrick’s Day spread.  They would also be pretty for a shower or girls brunch.

To make the dish more festive, I added a homemade light and healthy yogurt dip.  It is made with protein packed Greek yogurt and flavored with honey, almond extract and cinnamon.  It’s a super unique and yummy combination!  You can also just add the honey and fresh lime to the greek yogurt to make Honey Lime Dipping Sauce.  Once again… you can’t go wrong with either way.  If you’re feeling extra snazzy… do both.

Sure you could serve the fruit in a big bowl, but these skewers really bring out the wow factor.  And sometimes food really should just be fun.

Feel free to sub out any other fresh fruit you can find, but I love this combination for a maximum impact. Enjoy!

    Julie, these look divine! I don’t eat dairy, but I bet these skewers would be amazing swapping in almond-based yogurt in the dipping sauce. Planning on making these for my next picnic!

      I’m sure that would be perfect! They are so yummy and a total crowd pleaser!

    These remind me of those colorful rainbow popsicles that I used to eat as a kid, only a much healthier version. πŸ™‚ Love the colors and the dipping sauce sounds amaaazing, too. Thanks so much for joining the Meatless Monday link-up today!

    when the weather turns hot like its been the last few days, I find that I feel better eating a fruit snack than a heavier meal. My favorites would be strawberries dipped in chocolate or blueberries in a bowl of milk , haven’t tried dipping sauces yet, maybe I’ll try yours soon πŸ™‚ btw ,when I’m hiking, I like raisin bran as a snack.

    • JulieWunder June 17, 2015 at 9:41 am - Reply

      I agree! Fruit is my favorite summer treat. Try it– I hope you like it!

  19. That honey almond dip looks awesome! I may have to try this to bring with me to a bbq I have to go to soon!

    • JulieWunder June 17, 2015 at 9:42 am - Reply

      It definitely brings to the WOW factor and it not as tricky as it looks πŸ™‚

    I love how simple this recipe is. Definitely a perfect addition to any summer BBQ! I am currently in love with raspberries, but watermelon is making it’s way back into my life in a BIG way. I’ve actually never tried dipping sauce for fruit, but this seems super light and a tasty addition. πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing!

      I am now going to have to get a big melon and but it up! Totally craving one now πŸ™‚
      The dip is perfect to jazz up the fruit for a weekend or party!

    I wish I would have had this idea before Eleanor’s birthday last weekend – these bright skewers (and yummy dipping sauce) would have been PERFECT!

      Great for kiddos too….
      And big kids like me… πŸ™‚

    farm fresh anything….strawberries or peaches or just off the tree apples….we have Strawberry Hill for Strawberries or peaches…apples are well nearby, so we either go to Justus (Hendersonville) or Altapass (BRP)

    • JulieWunder June 17, 2015 at 9:53 am - Reply

      I would get a bucket of berries every other day if I lived down there!!

  27. Almond extract good idea! I don’t usually eat dip with fruit either but great for parties.

    These look so pretty and festive!

    I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s post! I was just telling my friend when we were in Greenville about how Asheville has a lot of good hiking and how we need to come up and try it sometime soon.

    • JulieWunder June 17, 2015 at 9:54 am - Reply

      Thanks Stacie!! Let me know if you guys plan to come up and need some advice on where to go and/or a tour guide πŸ™‚

    Nice pictures of the fruit.

    So pretty! I love doing this rainbow trick with veggies and grilling them too! Purple potatoes are about the only ‘violet’ veggies I’ve been able to find, though. ALLTHEFRUIT, ALLTHETIME. Don’t make me pick. πŸ˜‰

    • JulieWunder June 17, 2015 at 9:58 am - Reply

      I agree. I can’t pick!!!!
      I feel like I need some purple potatoes now….
