Who loves Fruit Dip as much as me?? It’s this thing that all fruit NEEDS in my life.

I have the ability to rationalize just about anything. Whether it’s a purchase from Target (I need those new bowls and plates for the blog; this is my job). Or that over the top four-cheese grilled cheese sandwich that I made for dinner last night (It’s a brisk 50° out. We need comfort food). Or that birthday trip to wine country that I’m trying to convince my husband that we should plan (He only turns 40 once! Right? Right?).

MY OTHER RECIPES

So, when it comes to dipping fruit in chocolate it should come as no surprise that I rationalized this from the very beginning.

Fruit → Healthy!

Chocolate → Antioxidants! Minerals!

Greek yogurt → Protein! Calcium! Live and active cultures!

So, yeah, this is basically health food in my over-rationalized mind.

A Healthy Fruit Dip to Enjoy with All Your Favorite Fruits!

In all honesty, this fruit dip recipe walks the line between slightly indulgent and healthy. It’s filled with real ingredients and no artificial whipped toppings or instant pudding mixes. There is some sugar in here, so don’t go crazy and eat a whole bowl of this, but as a better-for-us-treat, this is a great option.

Fruit Dip Ingredients

  • Light/Reduced fat cream cheese
  • Vanilla Nonfat Greek Yogurt
  • Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • Powdered Sugar 
  • Mini Chocolate Chips

This fruit dip recipe is made with just a few ingredients, most of which you probably have in your kitchen right now. The base is nonfat vanilla Greek yogurt and reduced fat cream cheese. Powdered sugar sweetens it and unsweetened cocoa powder adds all that delicious chocolaty flavor. I also add some mini chocolate chips (for, umm, decoration?). Those mini chips add a slight crunch and extra decadent chocolate flavor, so don’t skip ’em.

One of the best fruit dip recipes loaded with chocolate! Grab your favorite fruit!

You can serve this healthy fruit dip with an assortment of fruit – strawberries, raspberries and bananas are my family’s favorites. I should also note that this fruit dip recipe is delicious on pretzels (sweet and salty for the win)! I came up with that idea when there was only a few bites of dip left (waah), and yes, I took out those last bites like a champ.

This dip is a fun addition to breakfast or brunch. It’s great for a party. It’s perfect for Valentine’s Day. And it’s a dessert you don’t have to feel guilty about.

Chocolate Fruit Dip is a must with your fruit especially when it's lighter and healthier!
