What You’ll Need to Make These Skewers

All you need are some skewers, a heart-shaped cookie cutter, a few cups of strawberries, a small watermelon, a cantaloupe, a honeydew, and a few blueberries and you’re in business.

I have a small set of cookie cutters which I’ve ended up using quite a bit.

I also use them when I make pies – I like cutting out a bunch of stars from pie dough and layering them across the top of the pie to create a pretty crust.

Recently, I’ve started cutting fruit into shapes for my breakfast smoothie bowls, which is what got me thinking about some heart-shaped healthy skewers for Valentine’s.

Variations for this Recipe

I think it would be fun to do some other colors of hearts and I’d recommend trying out pineapple or dragonfruit to get some other textures and flavors.
