These beautiful Caprese skewers make a fantastic keto appetizer!

Instead of using tomato, try shaking things up this summer (and beyond) by using fresh watermelon balls for a fantastic sweet and savory combination. The result is a satisfying snack with watermelon, fresh mozzarella, basil leaves, and an easy homemade keto blackberry vinaigrette you’re gonna LOVE.

I know what you’re thinking, “Aren’t there too many carbs in watermelon?”

According to Carb Manager, one ball of watermelon is around 1g net carb. One of these skewers has 2 balls of watermelon and clocks in at just 2.4g total for the skewer. So it’s totally possible to enjoy watermelon in strict moderation with it not being terribly high in carbs.

Tips for making keto watermelon Caprese skewers:

  • You’ll need a handy melon baller or cookie scoop to make the fresh watermelon balls, or just cut the pieces into 1.25-inch sized chunks.
  • Because storebought balsamic vinaigrette has quite a bit of sugar, I made my own using red wine vinegar and fresh blackberries using a blender, just like this dressing in our keto Caprese salad.
  • You can compile these a little bit in advance, but then only add the dressing and olive oil when ready to serve.

Here’s what my teammate Jenna had to say about these keto Caprese skewers:

“These are the most perfect summer snack! So fresh and tasty, I want to make these more often! I didn’t have mozzarella balls at my grocery store but doubling up on mozzarella pearls instead worked perfectly.

Speaking of, the subtle mozzarella and the juicy watermelon with the fresh basil is just the perfect flavor combination. The blackberry drizzle makes it even better! I am a big fan of this recipe and it is my new favorite this summer!”


Make these bacon-wrapped Brussels sprouts for another awesome keto appetizer!
