If you were to show up at my house each night, you would see that this fruit dip is my go-to snack before bed.
I rarely tire of eating it.
There is just something about chocolate that ends a day perfectly.
This Skinny Chocolate Fruit Dip recipe was born when I was trying to get in shape a few years ago. My clothes were tight and I knew I was not taking care of myself. It’s embarrassing to admit when most of my friends think I am kind of a health nut.
But nobody is perfect and health journeys are never easy.
Enter: portion control. Why does it have to be so hard?!
I began to realize that I could eat all the healthy, “clean”, nutrient dense food I wanted, but if my body wasn’t burning all that fuel it would find a place to store it.
Let’s just say, my skinny jeans don’t exactly appreciate where my body chooses to store it. 😉
That is when I jumped on the Greek yogurt bandwagon. Do you remember a few years ago, when Greek yogurt was this exciting new health food? It was all the rage and I knew I wanted to try it!Skinny Chocolate Fruit Dip for One | Clean Eating | Gluten-Free | 100 Calories Click To Tweet
I couldn’t believe how similar it was to sour cream, yet high in protein!
I started to use it as a substitute for oil in baking and subbing it for sour cream in savory dips.
Then one evening, a light bulb went off. I wondered if I could create a sweet dip to accompany my all-time favorite snack, a crisp apple.
My original recipe used liquid stevia to sweeten, but I am partial to coconut sugar now. I will be the first to admit, this dip may not be sweet enough for your taste buds. If that is the case, increase the amount of coconut sugar in 1 tsp increments until it is the perfect dip for you.
I prefer a slightly richer-tasting dip to balance out the sweetness of my fruit.
Okay, I know you are chomping at the bit to try this incredible recipe so let’s get to it!
Here are the ingredients you will need:
1/2 cup plain Greek Yogurt
1 Tbsp cocoa powder
2 tsp coconut sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/16 ( a couple drops) almond extract
Dash of salt
Apple, strawberries, or fruit of choice
Mix all ingredients (minus the fruit) in a small bowl.
Wash and slice apple. Cut into wedges or prepare other fruit of choice. Enjoy!
