Cut the apple into small squares. Please ask an adult for assistance when cutting the fruit. Peel the banana and cut it into chunks. Cut 2/3 cup of pineapple, or you can buy pineapple pre-cut to save time. Measure 1/3 cup of dried coconut and 1 cup of nonfat yogurt. Put the ingredients into small individual bowls or onto a large plate.

Line the cooking pan with wax paper. It saves time and creates less of a mess when cleaning up. Take the 1 cup of nonfat yogurt and spread it all over the baking pan.


Hold your kabob at the ends of the sticks and roll it in the yogurt until covered.

Repeat the previous steps with all of the kabobs.
