Chocolate-Covered Fruit Kabobs
Last updated: October 2022
If you're like me, you have a sweet tooth pretty much 24/7. However, I noticed that processed sugar and my gut do not go well together, so I have to keep my dessert intake to a minimum. But when that sugar craving hits, I have to satisfy it, and one of my favorite go-to snacks is these chocolate-covered fruit kabobs.
I love these kabobs for a few reasons. First, it allows me to integrate a wider variety of fruits into my diet while also feeling indulgent since they are drizzled with chocolate. I also love using dark chocolate (at least 85% cacao) to boost my antioxidant intake, and the bitterness pairs nicely with the sweetness of the fruit. Lastly, I love how easy these are to make and that I can make them ahead of time and take a few out of the freezer whenever I want something sweet. My 3-year-old daughter also loves these, so it makes eating healthy while satisfying a guilty pleasure possible.
Feel free to sub in whichever fruits you like or tolerate the most. Enjoy!
