I use to make this recipe with cow’s milk yogurt, but haven’t made it in a long time. Until, that is, our most recent summer visit to Connecticut. My sister needed something to bring for ‘snack day’ at work. I gave her a few options, and wouldn’t you know… she loved the sound of everything. So I chose my old favorite and it was settled. I was in the kitchen for the rest of the evening preparing snack for tomorrow’s ‘snack day’. Oh don’t feel bad - we all know the kitchen is my favorite room to be in!
The Results? When she came home from work the next evening, she was so excited to tell me how much people loved the snacks. Especially the fruit dip she brought! I was beaming as she told me how they ate every last bit. They even resorted to dunking the brownies in the dip when the fruit was all gone! Not a bad idea actually.
Anyhow, I was so thrilled about my sister’s reviews, that I decided to make it again for an upcoming family BBQ. Only this time, I ‘veganized’ it by using the coconut yogurt. The results? Well, when I went to pick up my plates at the end of the day – there was nothing left. That’s a great sign!
Now I really don’t believe we need to add sweeteners to fruit - it’s already so sweet and delicious by itself! But sometimes, I like to change things up a bit and make them even more special. Well, this is the dip that does it! Enjoy.
