Our family LOVES fruit! We eat between 15-20 pounds of apples each week, if that tells you anything. We don’t just eat apples, we eat bananas, blueberries, strawberries — basically whatever is in season.
I have readers tell me their kids won’t eat fruit. Although that isn’t something I deal with I have an easy solution, ready for this. Add a dip.
Kids will eat almost anything with a dip.
You may be thinking, I want my kids to be healthy, how is adding a fruit dip going to help? You can use a healthy dip and I’ve got a super easy dip recipe for you. It’s only 2 ingredients so even your kids can “help” you make it.
Chocolate Fruit Dip
- 1 Tbsp cocoa powder
- 6 oz Vanilla So Delicious Cultured Coconut Milk (non-dairy yogurt)
No steps required, just stir the cocoa powder into the non-dairy yogurt. DONE.
This makes an incredible fruit dip to dip for cookies or graham crackers. I haven’t tried it yet on a fruit pizza but I really want to. One day I’ll try it as a frosting or filling for cupcakes but I don’t know how well it will work. It makes a pretty fabulous parfait as well.
I chose this type of yogurt because it’s made from coconut milk and safe for people with dairy, soy and tree nut allergies.
My boys loved it and they are picky about their yogurt.
On a side note, So Delicious just calls this cultured coconut milk, they don’t use the word yogurt because technically it isn’t. I use it because we always buy non-dairy versions of yogurt and it is just the word we are used to using.
You can make this with other flavors. Our store only carries plain, vanilla and blueberry but raspberry would be delightful.
If your kids get used to eating fruit with dip they will be more likely to eat it without dip too.
For us, this dip is like a special dessert treat. I don’t make it all the time but they love it. It also works great in a lunch box.
