Healthy Fruit Dip
Updated: Aug 30
It is perfectly acceptable to consume this dip by the spoonful. I justify this action by telling myself it is simply a cream cheese yogurt sweetened by unrefined means. I may even make myself feel better by plopping a blueberry or two into the bowl just so I can make the claim that I ate it as a “fruit dip.” I highly advise never allowing yourself to spiral down the same path that I did. I once dipped each individual morsel of fruit as nature intended. Now, I am at the point of drowning my fruit in mountainous heaps of this creamy dip.
8 oz cream cheese
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
⅓ cup honey
2 tsp vanilla extract
Beat cream cheese until smooth.
Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until fully incorporated.
Chill for at least an hour before serving.
My favorite way to consume this dip is globbed over a bowl of fruit. When served this way as a dessert, I often drizzle more honey on top.
You can use vanilla yogurt. If sugar is already added to the yogurt, reduce the amount of honey. I have made this before and reduced the honey to ⅛ to ¼ cup depending on how sweet the yogurt already was.
Limited in what I could bake in my unbelieveably tiny oven, I ended up making a simple fruit dip for dessert more often than anything else in our 6 month camper stay. With the utmost consistency that this dessert appeared in our diets, I am surprised that it never got old. There was never a point where I couldn’t go for a bowl of rasberries, blueberries, strawberries, sliced banana, and pineapple chunks topped with a healthy portion of dip.
