Healthy Fruit Dip

IMG_5425

As promised, here is our second recipe of the day for our Memorial Day blog series! I have put a healthy spin on the traditional fruit dip with cream cheese. Don’t get me wrong, cream cheese is DELICIOUS, but if you can find a healthier option, why not try it out?!

This recipe is quick, easy, and has only 2 ingredients! I didn’t struggle as much as Kristen did (check out her post here). haha 🙂 BUT…. the week isn’t over yet!

Ingredients: 

Strawberry Yogurt

Light Whipped Topping

Directions:

  1. Using a whisk, mix together equal parts of yogurt and whipped topping. For example, 1 cup yogurt and 1 cup whipped topping.
  2. If you would like the dip to be thicker, add more whipped topping until you reach the desired consistency.

Tips:

  1. Make sure your whipped topping is thawed. I just let mine sit out on the counter top for 5-10 minutes. Using frozen whipped topping will effect the consistency of your dip.
  2. Make sure to use a whisk or fork to mix the yogurt and whipped topping together to prevent lumps.
  3. I haven’t tried using greek yogurt, but from my experience, it would make this dip thicker.
  4. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

 

I usually pair this dip with apples and pineapple, but this would work for all types of fruit. Use pineapple juice, lemon juice, or salt to prevent enzymatic browning (ex: apples turning brown after being sliced). I typically use pineapple juice because it doesn’t effect the flavor as much as lemon juice or salt. All I do it quickly dunk the apple slices into the pineapple juice and then you are good to go!
