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!
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.
