Instructions

  1. Preheat grill.

  2. For each watermelon skewer, you'll need one cup watermelon cubes (about 6 cubes) and thin lime slices from half a lime (about 5 slices). To assemble skewers, alternate a watermelon cube with a folded lime slice.

  3. Brush watermelon skewers with melted coconut oil to prevent sticking.

  4. Grill watermelon skewers for two minutes over high heat, then flip and grill another 2 minutes. Remove from grill and set aside.

  5. To prepare the lime yogurt sauce, combine the yogurt, agave nectar, and the juice and zest from one lime.

  6. Serve immediately.
