Citrus Glazed Fruit Kabobs

Today is National Eat Something on a Stick Day, so what better to post for your delight than some fruit kabobs! I discovered this while searching for some kiwi recipes for a recipe tag group I belong to. So I had to share this one with you all!

Citrus Glazed Fruit Kabobs

1 C. vanilla yogurt
1 T. chopped fresh mint
1/4 t. ground ginger
3/4 C. packed brown sugar
1/4 C. lime or orange juice
dash ground cinnamon
2 kiwifruit, peeled, halved and thickly sliced
1/2 C. each fresh peach, apricot, plum and nectarine wedges
1/2 C. thickly sliced ripe banana
1/2 C. cubed fresh pineapple
1/2 C. cubed peeled mango

For sauce, in a small bowl, combine the yogurt, mint and ginger; cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
For glaze, in a small saucepan, combine the brown sugar, lime juice and cinnamon.  Cook and stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved.  Remove from the heat.
On 8 metal or soaked skewers, alternately thread the fruit, brush with half of the glaze.  Grill uncovered over medium low heat for 12-16 minutes or until lightly browned, turning occasionally and basting frequently with remaining glaze.  Serve warm with yogurt sauce.
