Frozen Fruit Skewers

Frozen Fruit Skewers

Hi everyone! I hope you’re having a nice healthy weekend. Before I give you the next Super Bowl recipe, I just want to say that I am so happyto officially be a part of the Foodbuzz Featured Publisher Program! They are an amazing community and I’m so grateful to be a part of it. Thanks Foodbuzz!

Okay, as promised, here is another healthy idea for your Super Bowl party. These are sure to be a crowd pleas-er! They are juicy, sweet, and full of nutrients! It can’t get much better than that! 🙂

Here’s what you’ll need:

Pictured here (for 4 servings) is:

  • 8 strawberries
  • 1 banana cut into ½ inch chunks
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1/8 cup of unsweetened coconut
  • 1/8 cup of almonds
  • 1 semi-sweet baking chocolate bar
  • You will also need wooden skewers (not pictured)

First, take the almonds and grind them up in a food processor, or a Magic Bullet (I use mine all of the time) 🙂

Next, using a cheese grater, grate chocolate bar, but be very careful not to get your fingers….ouch!

Place the honey in a bowl.

Now, line up the coconut, chocolate, and almonds on plates in an assembly line fashion.

Next, dip the fruit into the honey and coat it completely. Then roll the fruit into any of your desired toppings. You could roll it in the coconut, chocolate, almonds, or a mixture of all.  The possibilities are endless!

Continue this until all of the fruit is covered. Then place the covered fruit on the wooden skewer. Freeze for about an hour. Enjoy!

Nutrition information: Each skewer has only 110 calories and a ton of juicy sweetness! Strawberries are a great source of vitamin C. The bananas are a great source of potassium!
