Grilled Fruit Kabobs

Untitled-3

Oh my! You guys will love these, we went through an entire tray in two days and relished each bite.

Forget the nasty sugary candies- give these a try!

Soak ~15 kabobs in shallow water (to avoid starting a fire…but if you are a pyro and are into that, then you can skip this step)

1 pineapple cut into chunks
4 peaches, sliced
1/2 seedless watermelon

In a small bowl combine:
1/2 c. truvia or other sugar substitute
2 tsp cinnamon

Place all peaches in a bowl and toss in the above mixture, mix to coat evenly.
Get creative, start a pattern or place the fruit on the kabobs randomly

Grill the kabobs about 3 minutes per side, watching carefully to make sure they don’t burn.

EAT THEM!
