1 cantaloupe, peeled
2 cups vanilla yogurt (recommended: Dannon)
2 tablespoons honey

16 whole strawberries

How to make Fruit Wands

1. Cut the cantaloupe in half and remove all seeds from 1/2 with a spoon. Slice a tiny bit off the bottom so it sits flat like a bowl. Place on a plate.

2. Place cantaloupe half with seeds, seed side down on a plate.

3. In a bowl, whisk together yogurt and honey; pour into the cantaloupe bowl for dip.

4. To make wands, slide cubes of fruit onto skewers, leaving 1 inch at both ends of each skewer. Stick 1 end into cantaloupe half, top the skewer with a strawberry.
