I love fresh fruit, but there is something about having a delicious dip served with it that takes it to the next level! My kids love dipping any kind of fruit, so I want to be sure that it’s healthy and not loaded with sugar.
This dip starts with Greek Yogurt as a creamy base. Now, we need to talk about that all Greek Yogurts are NOT created equal! In order to keep this dip as healthy as possible, it’s crucial that you are checking the ingredients label and nutrition facts!
One of my favorite kinds of Greek Yogurt is Fage (this isn’t sponsored, but I am just sharing my what I use for my family). They have lots of protein and no sugar added, plus all their ingredients are natural. I also love how smooth it is and the flavor is so good. Do you have a favorite kind? I would love to hear in the comments below.
The next ingredient needed to make this fruit dip is cocoa powder. By itself, cocoa powder is actually quite bitter tasting and you usually have to add a lot of sugar to make it taste good. However, for this recipe, we are going to be using honey as a sweetener. I know that honey is still considered a sweetener, but I do appreciate the added nutrients and benefits that it provides. You can also use a smaller amount than sugar to still get the sweet taste that you need for your recipes when you use honey, so that’s another pro to add to the list.
The last pantry ingredient that you need for this dip is vanilla extract. I do not recommend making this recipe without it! It adds the flavor that you need to pull everything together.
Mix all the ingredients together and serve! I have also made this dip hours before eating it and letting it chill in the fridge until I served it and it was delicious. I think that you could make this up to a day before and have it still be perfect. It’s creamy, it’s chocolatey, and it’s delicious. I really could eat it with a spoon and be happy! I also love that it’s actually pretty healthy for you as well.
With summer right around the corner, this is the perfect snack to make on a hot day with all the fresh fruit that is in season. It’s also perfect for all those potlucks and parties that happen all season long.
The fruits that I love with this dip are:
-melon (cut into bite-sized pieces)
I also love serving this yogurt dip with graham crackers!
