These coconut- and lime-infused fruit bites are a fabulous appetizer, snack, or dessert. Threading the fruit onto skewers makes for a fun presentation and keeps the flavors of each fruit distinct, but if you don’t have skewers, a bowl or plate will work fine. If fresh fruit is not at its peak, you can use frozen for this recipe.


  • ½ cup refrigerated unsweetened coconut milk beverage
  • 1 Tbsp. lime zest
  • ⅛ tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 2 fresh kiwifruits, peeled and quartered (1 cup)
  • 8 1½-inch pieces fresh peeled pineapple (1 cup)
  • 8 1 ½-inch pieces fresh peeled papaya (1 cup)
  • 8 1½-inch pieces fresh peeled mango (1 cup)
  • ¼ cup snipped fresh mint or Thai basil


  1. In a medium bowl combine coconut milk, lime zest, and cayenne pepper. Add fruits and toss to coat. Cover and chill 1 to 4 hours, stirring occasionally.
  2. Drain fruit, discarding coconut milk mixture. Thread fruit pieces alternately on eight 6-inch skewers. Sprinkle with fresh mint.

Made this with Pad Thai as a side dish on a bed if lettuce. It was beautiful and a wonderfully fresh burst of flavors. You will not be disappointed.

This sounds delicious!
Rather than saying “Discard the coconut milk…” I would recommend saying “Reserve the coconut milk mixture for a different recipe”. This would encourage resourcefulness and thrift.
I will make a mini version of this recipe on toothpicks for a cocktail eats style occasion. Thank you!
