Heart Smart Gluten Free Low Sodium

Tropical fruits like pineapple contain nutrients to help protect your body from the sun’s damaging rays on warm summer days.

Ingredients

12 wooden skewers
24 strawberries, stems removed
1/2 of a fresh pineapple, peeled and cut into 1-inch-by-2-inch cubes
3 medium peaches, cut into 1-inch-by-2-inch cubes
*optional: 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar

Directions

  1. Soak skewers in water for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Heat grill to medium-high heat.
  3. Place one strawberry on the skewer, then alternate between pineapple and peach cubes until you have 9 pieces of fruit on the kebab (4 pineapple cubes, 4 peach cubes). End with one more strawberry. Repeat for each skewer.
  4. Place kebabs on the grill. Grill for 5 to 8 minutes, turning frequently (about every 60 seconds). Sprinkle brown sugar in the last 1 to 2 minutes of grilling, turning several times to coat all sides (if desired*).

Leftover fruit from the kebabs can be used to make a fruit salad or frozen to put in smoothies. If you want to treat yourself to a small bowl of ice cream, use the fruit as healthful topping for a splash of color and an extra boost of nutrition!
