Fruit kebabs with warm chocolate sauce


<strong>For the kebabs: </strong>
4 wooden skewers
4 large strawberries
A quarter of a honeydew melon
2 kiwi fruit
A thick slice from a pineapple
1 mango
8 red grapes
<strong>For the chocolate sauce:</strong>
100ml low fat milk
120g dark chocolate
A few drops of vanilla extract
2 tablespoons of low fat crème fraiche


  • 1. Chop the strawberries into halves. Peel and chop the melon to make 8 chunks of equal size. Peel the kiwi fruit and cut each one into quarters. Peel the pineapple and chop the ring into 8 segments, cutting off any hard core from the centre. Peel, halve and stone the mango, then cut each half into 4 pieces. Wash the grapes.
  • [This is my choice of fruits
  • you can use plums, pitted cherries, orange segments or any other fruits that you have.]
  • 2. Thread 2 of each fruit onto each skewer, varying the colours and ending with the grapes, using a grape to cover the sharp point. It looks more appealing on the dish if you thread the fruits onto each skewer in the same order.
  • 3. Now make the sauce. First grate the chocolate finely. Then warm the milk gently in a small saucepan. Add the grated chocolate and stir until it melts into the milk. Add a few drops of vanilla extract and stir in the crème fraiche, then tip the sauce into 4 very small bowls, or a single bowl if you want to share, and serve immediately.
Cooks Note

This chocolate sauce uses low fat dairy products, and just a little goes quite a long way, so it’s not too unhealthy.
