Healthy Yogurt Fruit Dip – 3 Ingredient Low Sugar Dip!
Fruit is often called ‘nature’s candy’ for a reason—juicy, naturally-sweet, and fun to eat! But, you can make fruits even more enticing (especially unfamiliar fruits for pickier eaters) with a simple yogurt fruit dip!
For both kids and adults, trying new and unfamiliar foods can feel intimidating. And, if your child is resistant to trying new fruits, this low sugar yogurt fruit dip can help encourage them! Not only is it sweet and comforting, but dips just make foods more fun.
You only need 3 ingredients to make this yogurt fruit dip: yogurt, honey, and cinnamon! And, this recipe uses far less honey than most. It’s lower in sugar, but still perfectly sweet and creamy. Plus, it’s so easy!
Of course, feel free to make this yogurt fruit dip your own with other flavorings. Try pumpkin pie spice for a fall-flavored treat, a bit of fruit preserves or jam, or even some finely diced fresh fruit!
Choose Your Yogurt Wisely
Nowadays, there are TONS of yogurt options available to you. For my yogurt fruit dip, I chose to use Greek yogurt for a thicker texture and a boost of protein. And, if you struggle to fit enough protein in your picky eater’s diet, it’s a great option to sneak in a bit more!
But, you can use a nondairy yogurt if you prefer to keep this yogurt fruit dip dairy free. More and more stores are carrying soy, coconut, almond, and even cashew based nondairy yogurts! Choose an option suits your lifestyle and preferences—they’ll all work in this yogurt fruit dip.
But, whichever you choose, I do recommend looking for a plain, unsweetened variety. That way, YOU control the sugar content and the flavorings. Most flavored yogurts today (even the seemingly healthy options) are loaded with sneaky added sugars!
Keep this yogurt fruit dip simple, nutritious and tasty. So easy, and a great way to make unfamiliar fruits more appealing and fun for kids and picky eaters!
