COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update Learn More

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

CentraCare care givers have been working around the clock for more than 20 months to care for you, your families and friends during COVID. We are committed to caring for every Minnesotan who needs us, and nothing will prevent us from doing so – even during these never-seen-before times.

The challenge of providing this level of care is that our hospital beds are often full. ERs in all of our hospitals are packed. And our clinical teams are exhausted. Early in the pandemic, our community stepped up in amazing ways to help us. We ask that you again join us in fighting this pandemic together.

How can you help?

  • Please get your COVID vaccines and booster shots. They are proven safe and effective in reducing COVID illness, keeping people out of the hospital, and preventing death.
  • If your situation is not an emergency, please use other care options, including:
  • If this is a medical emergency, call 9-1-1, or visit the ER.

Together, we can do this. Thank you for your support.

Ken Holmen, MD
President and CEO

Grilled Juicy Fruit Kebabs & Dip

Published in Recipes, Snacks Author: CentraCare

Recipe from Hungry Girl

Ingredients

Dip:

  • 6 ounces fat-free plain Greek yogurt (like Fage Total 0%)
  • 1 tablespoon granulated white sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract

Kebabs:

  • 1 cup 1-inch pineapple chunks (about 1/4th of a pineapple)
  • 1 cup 1-inch mango chunks (about 1 mango)
  • 1 cup 1-inch peach or nectarine chunks (about 2 peaches or nectarines)
  • 1 cup 1-inch banana chunks (about 1 large banana)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions

If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for about 20 minutes to prevent burning. (You'll need 4 skewers.)

Combine all ingredients for dip in a bowl. Mix until thoroughly blended and smooth. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Skewer the fruit chunks alternately onto 4 skewers, packing the pieces together tightly. Sprinkle with cinnamon.

Bring a grill (or grill pan) sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Add skewers, cover, and cook until fruit chunks are slightly blackened and caramelized, about 3 minutes per side. If using a grill pan, work in batches, removing pan from heat between batches to re-spray. (Don't worry if the lid used for covering isn't a perfect fit!) Serve dip with grilled fruit and chew!

Yield: 4 skewers (1 serving = 1 skewer)
