Breakfast Fruit Skewers

I have to admit, my brother is one of the very best 'chefs' that I know and his presentation of the most simple meal is inspiring. Here is a simple breakfast with fruit on skewers served with a sauce that you can individually drizzle over the fruit on your plate. Since enjoying that wonderful breakfast at his home, I have tried several different versions of sauces myself which I share below.
In an alternate fashion place strawberries, pineapple chunks, grapes, oranges, melon, cantaloupe, banana or seasonal fruit in a pretty pattern on a large wooden skewer. Serve with one of the following sauces.

Vanilla Honey Glaze

  • 1 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
Place honey and vanilla in a smaller glass microwave safe bowl. Heat just long enough for honey to be able to be stirred. Do not overheat the honey! Stir the vanilla and honey together. Drizzle over individual fruit skewers Yogurt Dipping Sauce.
  • 3/4 cup boiling water
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) reduced-fat lemon yogurt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom

Place the water and raisins in a small bowl; let stand for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the yogurt, ginger, allspice and cardamom. Drain raisins; stir into yogurt mixture. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Marshmallow/Yogurt Dipping Sauce

  • 100 g white chopped white marshmallows
  • grated lemon zest
  • 1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 200 g fruit yogurt
  • 1/2 cup thickened cream
Combine marshmallows, lemon rind and juice in a non stick saucepan. Cook stirring continuously over low heat until the marshmallows have melted. Cool slightly. Gently combine yogurt and cream and stir cooled marshmallow mixture through the yogurt. Chill.
