Red White and Blue Fruit Skewers with Cheesecake Dip

I really have to give Shelby credit for these. She's the awesome person who told me about them when I texted her and said "I need a quick and easy dessert to take to a friend's house! HELP" She had never made them before but saw the idea somewhere. These were such a hit and pretty healthy for dessert. They would be great for a 4th of July cookout so I figured I'd share the recipe with you all!


{Red White and Blue Fruit Skewers with Cheesecake Dip}
24 servings
adapted from skinnytaste


Ingredients

Cheesecake dip:
4oz of 1/3 fat cream cheese softened I used the whole 8oz because the more cream cheese the better
1 cup Greek Yogurt I used Strawberry Chobani because that's what I had but Plain or Vanilla would be great too
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/4 cup raw sugar


Skewers:
14 oz angel food cake cut into 1 inch cubes
72-84 medium strawberries, stems removed Depending on how many strawberries you put on each skewer. I put 2 on each so I used around 40 strawberries.
1 pint blueberries
24 skewers


Recipe

In a medium bowl combine the cream cheese, yogurt, vanilla and sugar and mix until the sugar is dissolved. Set aside.

Thred 3 strawberries and 2 cubes of cake on each skewer alternating between the strawberries and the cake. Finish each skewer with 3 blueberries. Place finished skewers on a platter and refrigerate until ready to eat.

Enjoy!
