This chocolate fruit dip is delicious, easy, HEALTHY and it only takes a couple minutes and a few ingredients to make. So if you’re looking for a perfect Valentine’s Day treat that isn’t too bad for you but is still decadent, you’ve found it!
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.
Effortless Chocolate Dip with Greek Yogurt
That’s why I invented this chocolatey, decadent, yet healthy fruit dip. It’s made of Greek Yogurt, cocoa, and brown sugar. There’s cinnamon in there too.
I love 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!
What to Serve with Chocolate Greek Yogurt Dip
I love to serve this chocolate dip with an assortment of fresh berries. Strawberries, of course, but raspberries, blackberries, or whatever your favorites are!
You don’t have to serve it with just fruit though, get creative. Marshmallows, sweet biscuits, pretzels… hard to go wrong here. Experiment and let us know what your favorites are with this delicious dip.
If you actually want to splurge a bit more for Valentine’s Day, like, you want some cream cheese instead of yogurt, I get that. And I have just the thing for you. Check out this Red Velvet Cheese Ball. Yes. Really.
OK, now let’s dig into this chocolate yogurt fruit dip!
This fruit dip is easy to make, healthy AND decadent. It’s the perfect dip to make when company is coming over for coffee or drinks. The cayenne pepper in the recipe is optional. Try adding a tiny pinch, mix it in and then taste. You shouldn’t be able to tell it’s there. It’s just a little background tingle that makes the dip extra special.
