  • Yield: 4 servings


2-- firm ripe bananas
2tablespoons orange juice
1/2cup red California grapes (about 16)
1/2cup green California grapes (about 16)
8-- (10-inch) wooden skewers
1 1/2ounces dark chocolate (60-70 percent cocoa solids), finely chopped


  1. Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Cut the banana into ½-inch thick rounds. Place in a small bowl and toss gently with the orange juice.
  2. Skewer the fruit, alternating two grapes for each piece of banana and place the fruit skewers onto the lined tray.
  3. Place the chocolate in a small microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 1 minute, then stir well, and microwave another 10 seconds if necessary to melt the chocolate. Using a spoon drizzle the melted chocolate onto the fruit skewers.
  4. Place the tray in the freezer for at least 2 hours. Once frozen, skewers may be transferred to a sealable plastic bag where they will keep in the freezer for up to a week. Allow to soften at room temperature for 5 minutes before eating.
