This easy kid friendly recipe is part of an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Monk Fruit In The Raw. I received product samples to facilitate my post as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation
How many times a day do moms hear the words “I’m hungry” from their kids? If I had a dollar for ever time I heard that I would be a very rich woman lounging on a beach somewhere very secluded! Kids are hungry about 472 times a day. And if left to their own devices, mine would probably eat their weight in cheese crackers or cookies and never branch out to another food group. I love when I find a kid friendly recipe that is both easy and quick….and if I can find one that is healthy, too, I am even happier! When I was asked to work with Monk Fruit In The Raw on this project I was ecstatic to come across these Chicken and Fruit Kabobs with Peach Dipping Sauce (if you love kid friendly recipes, check out my recipe for silver turtles in the oven!). Food on a stick is always a big hit and the lightly sweet dipping sauce makes it both fun and flavorful!

What is Monk Fruit In The Raw? It is a zero calorie sweetener that tastes like sugar but actually comes from vine ripened monk fruit. It was originally harvested in the 13 century and is available as a bulk product for baking or in individual packets for sweetening your coffee or tea. In this peach dipping sauce recipe I could not even tell that I didn’t use real sugar in it (check out this easy peach chutney if you love fresh peaches!) (check out this easy peach chutney if you love fresh peaches!). Quite often I find that sugar substitutes have a bit of an ‘off’ flavor however the Monk Fruit In The Raw sweetened this dip deliciously with no odd flavors and significantly fewer calories than if I were to use regular sugar.
Did you know that September is Childhood Obesity Month? Incorporating Monk Fruit In The Raw into your recipes will help you cut down on calories without reducing the taste! There are no hard conversions to make when you are baking either. Monk Fruit In The Raw is used just like you would use real sugar. If your recipe calls for 1/2 cup of sugar, just replace that with 1/2 cup of Monk Fruit In The Raw instead! It is a great way to cut down on the calories you are serving to your kids without forcing them to skip the sweets all together.
