  • Ingredients
  • Method


2 quarts strawberries, hulled and halved
5 bananas, peeled and sliced ½” thick
1 pint blackberries
1 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt
1 level Tbsp. sugar substitute
½ tsp. vanilla extract
To prepare
12 (12”) wooden skewers
Small star cookie cutter, about 1”


  1. This platter is made by arranging fruit on skewers to look like an American flag. Start with the right-hand portion of the flag to make red and white stripes. Skewer 1 strawberry half (red side facing upwards) and push it down to the bottom of the skewer, leaving ½” at the base.
  2. Next, thread 1 banana slice onto the skewer (cut side facing upward), followed by 2 strawberry halves. Follow with another banana slice, then 2 strawberry halves, and end on a banana slice.
  3. Repeat this process another 6 times, for a total of 7 skewers.
  4. Now, make the left-hand portion that has the blue square, plus stripes. Using the star cookie cutter, cut 11 tiny stars from banana slices, and set aside.
  5. Next, thread 6 blackberries onto a skewer, leaving ½” at the base. Follow with 1 banana slice (cut side facing upward), then 2 strawberry halves (red side facing upward), and finish with a banana slice.
  6. Repeat this process another 4 times, for a total of 5 skewers.
  7. Arrange the skewers on a platter with the blackberry skewers on the left, and the red and white skewers on the right. Arrange the banana stars on top of the solid blackberry section.
  8. To serve, stir the yogurt, sugar substitute, and vanilla extract together to combine. Serve on the side for dipping.
