Creamy Yogurt Dip
1 cup greek or non-dairy yoghurt, plain or flavoured
2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup (omit if using flavoured yoghurt)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Prep Your Fruit
Cut up the fruit in a variety of sizes to create kebabs. To create interest and texture, half some berries & grapes while leaving some whole.
You can use mini cookie cutters on large slices of harder fruit like apple, melons and pineapple.
Toss apples and bananas with a bit of lemon juice to stop them from browning before adding them to the sculpture.
Place your sculpture base on a plate, platter or cutting board.
Create an assortment of kebabs by using bamboo skewers and toothpicks.
You can use only one piece of fruit or many per skewer/toothpick.
Remember to leave the skewer/toothpick exposed at one end for anchoring it into the base.|
Now poke the kebabs into the base.
Be creative. Give your sculpture a face, or turn the sculpture into a funny monster, see how high you can create a tower or just make your sculpture abstract and fun. It’s time to your use imagination!
Creamy Yogurt Dip
Place all ingredients in a bowl and stir until well combined.
