Summer Fruit Kebabs with Honey and Coconut – July’s Dessert of the Month

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on July 8, 2011

Talk about a healthy, sweet summer treat?!

After all the chocolate and brownies as the past few desserts, I thought it might be time for some ‘dessert of the month detox‘! ;)

And what better way than with fresh fruit, honey and unsweetened coconut!

Or sweetened coconut flakes if you insist on having sugar in your dessert. Or if that’s what you’ve got on hand!

Oh…and what you don’t end up using for dessert on the skewers can be turned into a lovely fruit salad.
