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