Red White and Blue Fruit Skewers with Cheesecake Yogurt Dip

If you need a quick last minute dessert that doesn’t require much work, it doesn’t get easier than this! These fresh strawberry, blueberry and angel food cake skewers are perfect for Memorial Day.

I’m not sure what it is about putting fruit on sticks that makes them so appealing, but my youngest daughter’s eyes lit up when she couldn’t wait to eat them.

I wanted a cheesecake flavored dip so I played around with yogurt, cream cheese, vanilla and sugar, and it was exactly was I was looking for. The strawberries tasted wonderful with this dip, a keeper!

This will feed a large crowd, you can assemble it in the morning, and refrigerate until ready to eat.
