Grilled Stone Fruit Skewers

There’s nothing better during the summer than stone fruit! Cherries, peaches, nectarines and plums all have a short season and we take full advantage. For this fun dessert recipe, we’re grilling up stone fruit skewers with a little melted butter and cinnamon, then dipping into yogurt. Kids and adults alike with love this dish.

Nutrition Tip: Everything truly is better with a “cherry on top,” as the high antioxidant content in cherries has been shown to support healthy skin and decrease muscle aches.
