Grilled Fruit Skewers with Passionfruit Sauce
The mango is the queen of provitamin A among fruits. This vitamin precursor supports the skin in cell renewal and thus provides us with beautiful and healthy skin. Pineapple scores with immune-strengthening vitamin C and minerals. It also contains a substance called bromelain. This is said to have many positive properties. For example, it is said to thin our blood and thus protect against thrombosis, heart attack and stroke.
To prepare the delicious skewers in a vegan version, you can replace the honey with maple or rice syrup and the yogurt with a yogurt alternative made from soy or coconut. When choosing the fruit, you can change the recipe to suit your own taste. For example, how about apricots, peaches or plums on the skewers?
