Fruit Kabobs Low-Calorie

 

Happy Memorial Day weekend! I want to acknowledge that Memorial Day is more than just a day off of work, or an excuse to have a BBQ or pool party. Memorial Day is celebrated on the last Monday of every May to honor and remember all of the men and women who died fighting for our country. I am forever grateful to all those who have served our country.

 

Memorial Day is the unofficial start to the summer season. Since schools are closed this day, and it is a day many people are off of work, it is typically spent gathering with friends and family and having an outdoor get together. Here in Arizona, it is started to warm up quickly. We are seeing temperatures well into the 80’s now, and starting to push the 90’s. Time spent outdoors right now is fabulous, especially if you have a pool.

What are some of your favorite foods and treats to celebrate the holiday? In my family, it is common to grill and eat summer type foods. These fruit kabobs are a great addition to any get together, whether it be indoor or outdoor because they will hold up great either way. They are also great for kids and grown-ups alike.

Only 4 ingredients are needed to assemble these kabobs, and they come together quickly. They are a great lower calorie food option, when parties and cookouts don’t always have the healthiest options available. First, I assembled the strawberries, blueberries, and marshmallows on the skewers. Then, I melt the dark chocolate chips in the microwave and drizzle it over the kabobs. Chocolate makes everything better, and these fruit kabobs are no exception.
