You can keep your kebabs ultra Weight Watchers Friendly by making them with just fruit (I used strawberries, blueberries and banana slices) giving them a PointsPlus value of 0.
July 4th Fruit Kebabs with Blueberries, Strawberries and Mini Marshmallows
Or sweeten them up a bit with the addition of a few mini marshmallows. (According to my calculations, 5 mini marshmallows has 10 calories, which would still keep them at 0 unless you got carried away!
The skewers made with fruit and two cubes of leftover Madeira cake have a PointsPlus value of 2 since each cube of cake has a value of 1.
Fruit Kebabs with Lemon Cheesecake Dip
I wanted a dip to go with these fun red, white and blue fruit kebabs and immediately thought of the leftover lemon curd cheese spread I had in the fridge. By adding some nonfat Greek vanilla yogurt, I was able to create a light creamy dip that reminded me of lemon cheesecake with only 1 PointsPlus per tablespoon! (Am I the only one who gets a thrill out of turning leftovers into something new and tasty?)
Another nice thing about these fruit kebabs is that you can make as few or as many as you need. Assemble them ahead and then cover and refrigerate them until you’re ready for them.
