Ingredients and Notes
- Greek yogurt - I use 0% plain greek yogurt. It has a thicker consistency than a higher fat yogurt and because we add the fat back into it with the almond butter, it tastes delicious in this greek yogurt fruit dip. Regular yogurt will work fine, it just may be a little thinner. Use a plain flavored yogurt or you can use a vanilla flavored yogurt and skip the vanilla extract.
- Almond butter - This is my nut butter of choice in this recipe. It has just the right amount of nuttiness to add a cookie dough flavor to the yogurt. I also like using cashew butter. Any nut or seed butter will work though. Try to use natural nut butter that requires you to stir it a little as it will mix into the yogurt better than no-stir.
- Vanilla - Just a little is used to add a touch of sweetness to the yogurt. Skip this is you use vanilla yogurt or a a flavored nut butter.
- Salt - A little sprinkle helps bring out the sweet flavor of the dip.
What Yogurt is best for Dipping?
A thicker yogurt is best to make a dip. This ensures a thick, creamy consistency that is incredibly dip-able.
What Fruit is Best on Fruit Platters?
Thinly sliced apples are my go-to yogurt dip accomplice but there are so many types of fruit that you can use too!
Choose fresh fruit that you can easily dip with your hands. Blueberries or raspberries might not be the best fruit to use in a dip unless there are toothpicks. Here are a few of my favorites:
- Apples - slice a fresh apple into thin slices. Leave the skin on or remove once cut.
- Strawberries - you can leave them whole or slice them in half.
- Pineapple - cut pineapple into long thin strips
- Banana - slice a banana into thick "coins" that you can easily pick up with your fingers.
- Watermelon - cut watermelon into long strips kind of like french fries that you can pick up.
- Peaches - slice peaches into thick wedges. You can leave the skin on or peel it off after it's sliced up.
- Pears - cut pears into wedges. Leave the skin on or remove it once it's sliced.
- Figs - cut figs in half or quarters.
- Cherries - wash and dry cherries and dip with the stem on into the dip. Be sure to have a bowl to put the pits!
- Kiwi - Remove the skin and slice into thick "coins" you can pick up with your hands.
- Grapes - Wash and serve with a toothpick.
- Blueberries - Wash and serve with a toothpick.
- Raspberries - Wash and serve with a toothpick.
Step by Step Directions
Step 1 : Mix yogurt ingredients. This is as simple as throwing them all together in a bowl and stirring well with a spoon until the almond butter is fully incorporated. Taste test the yogurt to make sure it's sweet enough to your liking.
If you like your yogurt dip on the sweeter side, add a tablespoon honey or maple syrup.
Step 2 : Cut up the fruit. My favorite fruit to use in a yogurt dip like this is thinly sliced apple slices. Their crispness and juicy crunch pair perfectly with the yogurt.
If using another fruit, cut it up into pieces, serve on a platter and enjoy!
- Add some cinnamon to the yogurt for extra flavor.
- Stir in some canned pumpkin and pumpkin spice for a fall take on the yogurt dip.
- Spinkle some mini chocolate chips into the yogurt for a cookie dough look.
