Yogurt Fruit Dip Recipe

I love fresh fruit all year round, but of course, everyone knows that fruit tastes 100 times better when it’s in season! Late spring through fall is the perfect time to enjoy all of that wonderful in-season fruit, everything from berries to apples. (my favorite!) If you are beginning to feel tired of eating plain fresh fruits and veggies all of the time, making an easy dip recipe or finding another simple way to use or cook them is a great way to keep from getting burned out. That’s why I’m excited to share this easy fruit dip recipe with you today for inspiration.

Yogurt Fruit Dip Recipe

This homemade fruit dip recipe comes from my Granny. It seems a little different, but it’s actually very tasty and so easy to make!

Growing up during the depression and then living a very frugal lifestyle for her whole life, my Granny has some excellent recipes made with simple ingredients, just like this simple fruit dip. Even at 96 years old she’s still willing to share her knowledge and expertise in the frugal living arena. I haven’t yet posted my Granny’s story here on the blog but I have shared the stories of her mother, my great-grandmother, and you can read them all under A South Dakota Prairie Story.

I don’t like to make big meals on hot summer days so I enjoy things like this simple fruit dip with yogurt alongside some fresh fruit as a cool lunch! Or make a cool, no-bake dessert to serve alongside your fresh garden veggies with whatever you are making for supper.

This recipe is also a great way to get your kids to try new fruits! Kids love to dip things and are more willing to try something new when they have a familiar, tasty treat to dip it in.

  1. For a really yummy and healthy peanut butter dip,
    empty a cup of nonfat vanilla yogurt into a mixing bowl.
    Now fill that empty yogurt cup with crunchy peanut butter just like you would a measuring cup.
    Empty peanut butter into the bowl with the yogurt and mix them together well.
    Serve and enjoy with apples, celery or any other peanut butter friendly food!

    This dip gives you calcium from the yogurt and Tablespoon for Tablespoon is half the fat of peanut butter alone.

    When I teach kids a lesson on making healthy snacks and we make this, there are never, ever any leftovers! πŸ™‚

  2. This recipe sounds super yummy and simple too! My kind of recipe will have to give this a try. Thanks for sharing. Found from Pintastic Pinteresting Party.

  3. I love simple recipes, and if they’re from Granny, you know they have to be amazing! And anything with cream cheese in it is golden in my book. πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Merry Monday! Pinning!

    I love “old time recipes”. Thanks Merissa for sharing your granny’s recipes. My biggest regret is not jotting down recipes while my mom was still alive. Now I definitely appreciate these “passed down” recipes.
