Serve these tropical fruit kabobs, made with star fruit, papaya and kiwi, over bowls of toasted flaked coconut ice cream for a sweet and satisfying dessert.


  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 1 3-inch cinnamon stick
  • 1 medium banana, peeled and sliced
  • Lemon juice

  • 1 kiwifruit, peeled and sliced
  • 6 wooden or metal skewers, each about 6 inches long

  • 1/3 cup toasted flaked coconut


  1. Place the honey and the cinnamon in a small saucepan over low heat. Once the mixture begins to simmer, remove from the heat and set aside.
