When you need a snack that’s fast, easy and, above all, healthy, my yogurt fruit dip is the answer. This recipe is simple but flavorful, easy to adjust and has the perfect amount of sweetness. Keep reading for this perfect party dish.
I love this yogurt fruit dip because it’s ridiculously easy to make and always a hit. I love bringing it to parties along with a fruit platter or Oven Roasted Figs when it’s summer. And if you can’t decide what to serve at your next potluck party, this is the answer. It’s a great healthy alternative to heavier dips and super sweet desserts.
The only yogurt dip I knew for years was savory: Yogurt Cucumber Dip. It is a staple in our home as an appetizer to accompany any main dish or spicy chips. Now we have another great yogurt dip with a sweet twist and it’s become our son’s favorite afternoon snack. I change something in the recipe each time I make it, but will share the basic form of it here. Read on for the variations.
How to Make
This Greek yogurt fruit dip is almost too easy to make. All you have to do is to follow two easy steps:
- Stir together the dip ingredients until fluffy using a fork or a whisk
- Top it with garnishes.
In this fruit dip recipe, Greek yogurt is sweetened with a little honey. Then you add cinnamon and poppy seeds for flavor and a little bit of texture. Finally, the recipe is finished with pistachios, pomegranate arils and extra cinnamon and poppy seeds on the top. The garnishes are visually appealing but also add great texture and flavor.
I use Greek yogurt as it’s thicker than regular yogurt and gives a nice dip consistency, but feel free to try either. Flavored yogurts work well too. If you’re using a flavored yogurt instead of Greek, make sure to leave out the honey as they’re usually already sweetened.
You can also mix heavy cream, sour cream or cream cheese into the yogurt depending on the consistency and flavor you like. I find that adding a few tablespoons of cream cheese makes for a richer, even more delicious cream cheese yogurt fruit dip. A few tablespoons of peanut butter can also be a great addition depending on your preferences. Also, maple syrup is a great alternative to honey if desired. Finally, you can try adding a half teaspoon of vanilla extract for a vanilla yogurt fruit dip version. The variations really are endless! However, I want to keep things light and simple this time.
The best part about this yogurt fruit dip recipe is that it only uses six ingredients - yogurt, honey, cinnamon, poppy seeds, pomegranate arils and pistachios. If you want to make the yogurt fruit dip even simpler you can skip the poppy seeds. It’s also fine to use only pomegranate seeds or pistachios, rather than both.
What to Serve With
I love eating this dip with fresh fruit and nuts. Strawberries work really well, as do sliced apples and pears. Cinnamon pita chips are also really delicious dunked in this yogurt fruit dip. You can make your own by slicing pita into wedges, brushing them with neutral oil and sprinkling with sugar and cinnamon before baking until crisp.
How To Store
Not only is this dip easy to make, it’s a great make-ahead recipe. The yogurt fruit dip will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for four to five days. Just stir it again before you serve it as the different components might separate if it sits for a while.
Now that you know what you’re bringing to your next potluck party, I hope you have a relaxing, stress-free weekend!
