Fresh fruit is delicious all by itself, but have you tried it with a healthy fruit dipping sauce? It is SO GOOD!

As a Registered Dietitian, I always encourage you to enjoy plenty of fruit in your diet – fruit provides antioxidants, fiber, and vitamins.

Where fruit is lacking, though, is in the protein department. That is where this Greek yogurt fruit dip comes in!

Pair your next fruit plate with this peanut butter and Greek yogurt dip for a filling, satisfying snack that has protein, healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, and fiber.

This yogurt fruit dip is something the whole family will enjoy. It’s quick to make (ready in less than 5 minutes) and incredibly easy, so even your kids can help in the preparation!

Lightly sweetened with honey (or use maple syrup), I’ve even been known to eat this creamy dip by the spoonful.

Ingredients

All you need are 5 simple ingredients, which you likely have in your pantry right now:

  • Plain Greek yogurt: Greek yogurt is thicker, creamier, and higher in protein than regular yogurt (you can read all about the nutrition benefits of Greek yogurt here). Use your favorite store-bought, or try your hand at making your own Greek yogurt! I prefer to use 5% or 2% fat for this recipe, as it has a richer, less tangy profile.
  • Peanut butter: Creamy natural peanut butter is best for this recipe – the only ingredients should be peanuts and salt. You can swap the peanut butter for another nut butter, or try it with sunflower seed butter for a nut-free dip.
  • Honey: Just a touch of honey adds a little sweetness to this dip. You could use another liquid sweetener instead, like maple syrup or agave.
  • Cinnamon: This spice adds warming flavor.
  • Vanilla extract: Enhances all the flavors in this yogurt dip.

Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days. Give it a little stir before serving, if any separation occurs.

Best fruit for dipping

It’s a good idea to choose fruit that is in season to serve with your dip – it will have more flavor and taste better.

Seasonal spring/summer fruit:

  • Berries
  • Peaches, nectarines, or apricots
  • Watermelon
  • Cantaloupe or honeydew melon
  • Plums
  • Figs

Seasonal fall/winter fruit:

  • Apples
  • Pears
  • Grapes
  • Persimmons
  • Kiwi

Tip: Serve your fruit platter and yogurt dip with some toothpicks or appetizer forks for easy dipping of smaller fruits, such as berries and grapes.
