When I was a kid, fruit dip was a very special treat. It was like getting the toy in your box of cereal (do they even do that anymore?). Usually, it only showed up at birthday parties on the “healthy” table, but I would gobble that stuff right up.
I’ll have a little dip with my fruit, please.
Fruit dip takes an after-school snack from healthy to super special. You’ll love whipping this one up for your kids and seeing their smiling faces as they dip away. Or, whip it up for yourself and definitely don’t share. It’s too good to share.
All you need are three ingredients that are likely already in your kitchen. Plain Greek yogurt is a wonder tool, working well in just about everything. I like to use plain Greek yogurt to make fruit dips because I can control the sweetness level and add whatever flavours I like. It’s nice and thick, which is perfect for dipping, and it has a nice amount of protein that it helps keep me full for a good couple hours.
Honey swirls around the yogurt, creating beautiful patterns, and a little sprinkle of lime zest adds a citrus-y kick that you’ll love. The dip keeps well in the fridge for up to a week, so if you’re a busy bee like the rest of us, you’ll like having something prepared and ready to go for when you get those hunger pangs.
As for the fruit, strawberries taste THE best with honey and lime. But you certainly don’t need to stop there. Bananas, grapes, watermelon, kiwi, peaches – pretty much any fruit that’s in season, on sale, or growing in your backyard works well with this recipe.
It’s time to jazz up your after-school (or after-work) snacks the healthy way. When healthy food tastes delicious, you’ll be looking forward to chowing down and relaxing after a long day – and barely lifting a finger in the kitchen.
