                                           Happy ” 4th of July”
          We recently went for ” Pick your own fruit farm”. It was really fun to pick fresh fruits directly from the farm. There we got fruits like strawberries, cherries, blackberries, blueberries and raspberries. So I made this creative fruit skewers for a evening snack. This is fun and healthy snack/dessert, easy and quick to make and a nice treat to eyes. You can serve plain or drizzle with some honey or serve it with a bowl of heavy cream.

     Ingredients

             3 Whole Strawberries
             6 Banana Slices
             6 Blueberries
             6 Cherries
             3 Blackberries
             3 Cantaloupe Pieces
             3 Wooden Skewers





    Method

  • Wash the fruits in a cold running tap water.
  • Slice the banana and cut the cantaloupe into triangle shape.
  • Slide the fruits onto skewers one at a time and they are ready to go.
  • An alternative is to freeze it for 2hrs and serve it with a bowl of heavy cream..



    Tips

  • On outdoors you can grill it in the rack of barbeque, after that drizzle it with some honey and toasted nuts.
  • You can have some marshmallow in between the fruits on skewers.
