I don’t enjoy baking. Or making desserts. It’s not something I can explain. It’s just the truth.

But even though I don’t like to make desserts, I do like to *eat* desserts.

When I crave something dessert-like I need it to be effortless. And given the number of calories I swallowed over the holiday season, I also need it to be healthy.

That’s why I invented this chocolatey, decadent yet healthy fruit dip made of Stonyfield Organic Greek Yogurt, cocoa and brown sugar.

There’s cinnamon in there too.

I loooovvvveeee cinnamon and chocolate together.

Oh, and there’s an optional pinch of cayenne to give this fruit dip pizzazz.

It’s so good.

I swear, it’s the easiest and tastiest thing I make when friends visit. Just mix and serve. Even I don’t mind doing that!Dark Chocolate Greek Yogurt Fruit Dip with Cinnamon

    the quickest and easiest fruit dip my family likes is caramel. but i’m going to make and serve this chocolate dip on our snack board for new year’s eve.

  2. Rachel says:

    I made this with 1 TBSP honey instead of brown sugar and it was perfect for our crepes!

    • Christine Pittman says:

      Rachel, Crepes are a perfect use for this dip. Yum! And thanks for letting me know about the substitution. Great idea!

  3. Sarah says:

    I like the look of this but I’m wondering if I can make it ahead, 1-2 days in advance? Or does it separate?

    • Christine Pittman says:

      Sarah, It can definitely be made ahead and it doesn’t separate. Store it in a sealed container in the fridge. It will stay good until whatever the best before date was on your container of yogurt. Give it a stir before serving.

    Each tablespoon (12g) of brown sugar contains 46 kcal (and 11.8g carbohydrates) and each tablespoon (5g) of cocoa powder provides 12 kcal | Protein 1.1 | Fat 0.7g | Carbohydrates 3.1g | Fiber 2g. It should help to calculate exact nutritional value of the dressing with any type of yogurt. Other ingredients don’t influence final numbers almost at all.

  5. Susan Quigg says:

    What is the nutritional values for this dip. This dip is soooo good.

    • Christine Pittman says:

      Hi Susan,
      I don’t have the nutritional values. It would basically be whatever your yogurt’s values are plus a tiny bit of fat from the cocoa and some calories for the brown sugar. I’m so happy you like the dip!

  6. Smash says:

    Hi, just wanted to say thanks for this recipe. I served it with strawberries for dessert and it was a treat. It was surprisingly refreshing. Perfect for a hot Sunday in the tropics! Btw, which type of cocoa powder did you use? I used Hershey’s unsweetened 100% cocoa powder. Mine turned out into a much lighter brown colour than yours did in your photo.

    This is excellent!! I am always being given plain Greek yogurt, which is a challenge since I don’t like it. This is a wonderful way to use it up. We had it with drained mandarin oranges, marshmallows, graham crackers, & brazil nuts. All stuff I want to use up. AND it was a lot of fun!
    Thank you very much.

    I liked it a lot! I found myself scraping the rest of the bowl when it was pretty much gone! But it definitely didn’t taste like expected it to.. It tasted very cinnamon-y to me and I expected it to taste more chocolate-y. Is there a way to fix this the next time I make it? I definitely want to make it again!

  25. Kim C says:

    My favorite fruit dip is simple: greek yogurt, cinnamon and honey.

  26. Anne says:

    I often have fruit with yogurt and honey for lunch, but I don’t think of it as a dip. One thing I do like for dessert with fruit–especially strawberries–is sour cream mixed with a little brown sugar. Simple but really good.

  27. Sharon K says:

    Christine, I don’t know if you got my response about the lime yogurt dip . . . I responded but it only seems to appear if you ‘hover’ over the Reply button (which is really weird). But, in case you can’t see my response, here it is . . . the lime yogurt dip is 8 oz Cool Whip (I use light) and 2 6oz containers of Yoplait Key Lime yogurt mixed together. Easy peasy. I actually got the recipe from another food blogger (http://www.iheartnaptime.net/key-lime-yogurt-fruit-dip/). I imagine it would be good with any kind of yogurt; I just happen to love key lime.

  28. Looks yummy. I love fruit with yogurt dip, the cocoa can only make it that much better!

  29. Sharon K says:

    I have a lime yogurt fruit dip that is easy and delish! This dark chocolate yogurt dip sounds heavenly!

    • Christine Pittman says:

      Sharon, What’s in the lime yogurt dip? It sounds delicious! Thanks :)

      • Sharon K says:

        Christine, It is very easy — 8 oz Cool Whip (i use light) and 2 6 oz containers of Key Lime yogurt (I used Yoplait, but I am sure it would be good with any preferred brand of key lime flavored yogurt) and just mix it together. It has a nice lime flavor, not overpowering and is very refreshing. I imagine that you could use any flavor of yogurt. (I got the recipe from another food blogger: http://www.iheartnaptime.net/key-lime-yogurt-fruit-dip/). Enjoy!!

  30. Sharon K says:

    This sounds yummy! I love dark chocolate and love Greek yogurt . . . will definitely have to try this!

  31. My favorite fruit dip would be simple–Greek yogurt with honey.

    • Christine Pittman says:

      Ada, I also love Greek yogurt with honey. Or with fig preserves! That’s what I had for breakfast today. It was wonderful.

  32. Karen says:

    A mixture of yogurt and cream cheese with lemon and vanilla.

    • Christine Pittman says:

      Karen, I’m curious: Does it end up tasting a bit like cheesecake? I do a drizzle on pastries that has cream cheese in it and that’s the effect I get. Love it!

  33. Barbara Mc / Whenihave Time says:

    I love caramel or chocolate dip with fruit!

  34. Heather says:

    My favorite fruit dip is marshmallow fluff and cream cheese whipped together. Yummy!!

  35. Jennie says:

    Raspberry yogurt mixed with cool whip. So light and delish!

    • Christine Pittman says:

      Jennie, That sounds so good! Is it equal amounts yogurt and cool whip? I can’t wait to try it.

      • Jennie says:

        I would recommend starting with equal amounts, and then just adjust according to your taste. Strawberry yogurt is also really good for this too, but I prefer the tartness of raspberry. Yoplait yogurt works really well for this mix. I have also frozen the mixture and it’s kind of like a lowfat semifreddo. Just thaw 5-10 mins before serving. Hope you like it! :)

  36. Elizabeth G. says:

    I like yogurt.

  37. jan says:

    Our favorite fruit dip is homemade carmel. served warm.

    • Christine Pittman says:

      Jan, I haven’t made caramel in years. Thanks for the reminder. I know it would be a treat for the kids to see how it’s made. And then to eat it!

  38. Emily says:

    This chocolate dip sounds amazing! I also really love apples with caramel.

    • Christine Pittman says:

      Emily, Thanks! I love apples with caramel too. Even the packets you can get of them now. Such a perfect treat. Reminds me of eating caramel apples as kids.

    my fave is a caramel dip.

  42. Megan K says:

    It’s a marshmallow fluffy and caramel dip! Soooo yummy!

  43. I love dipping fruit into lime flavored yogurt. So refreshing!

  44. Sheri B. says:

    My favorite fruit dip is lemon curd mixed with vanilla yogurt, so light and delicious!

    • Christine Pittman says:

      Sheri, What an amazing idea. I love lemon and vanilla together. Do you use equal amounts of curd and yogurt or would the lemon flavor be too strong?

  45. MaryB says:

    I like Greek Yogurt, seasoned with spices (cinnamon, etc) and some brown sugar.
