Caprese Fruit Skewers

If you have been reading for awhile you probably already know that we aren’t the healthiest eaters. I would love to be a healthy eater, but unhealthy food just tastes too good to pass up. I mean seriously, would you rather this or healthy food? Later this year the whole family is attending a wedding in Las Vegas. The wedding weekend festivities include a pool party. Ummm yeah, we have to wear bathing suits in front of everyone.  Scary… It is one thing to wear that bikini on vacation with strangers and a whole other thing to have to wear a bathing suit in front of all your friends. So, in preparation for this wedding we decided it was time to go on a diet.

Fortunately for us it is possible to eat healthy foods that taste good too. At first I wanted to make caprese salad. But I don’t actually like tomatoes.  I usually just eat the mozzarella. So instead of making caprese salad, we made these mozzarella and fruit skewers with balsamic vinegar.  I had no idea if I would like them, but they ended up tasting better than I imagined. Surprisingly, watermelon tastes great with balsamic vinegar.  Who knew? These fruit skewers have 4 things going for them. They taste good, they are healthy, they are easy, and they look pretty! But don’t worry we will be back to cupcakes, cake, and ice cream soon enough. Maybe tomorrow.

Here is what you'll need

Reduce the balsamic vinegar by about half. Ignore our filthy stove top.

Cube the mozzarella

Put the fruit, cheese, and basil on the skewers

The balsamic reduction is ready

Drizzle the skewers with the balsamic reduction

Tasty and healthy, perfect for our diet!
