Cinnamon Yogurt Fruit Dip

I’m back from my trip to Cambodia and Laos, which was wonderful in every way. Once we get through some photo editing and I collect my thoughts, I can’t wait to tell you about it! Meanwhile, I’m stuck in a fog of jet lag. Yikes! This is hard stuff, as any of you who have trekked halfway across the world before can appreciate. I’m pretty down and out at the moment, but hopefully I’ll feel better soon.

In the meantime, here is an incredibly simple “recipe” that we thought we’d share since we make it a lot, but it hadn’t yet made its way onto the blog. Instead of buying fruit dip, just stirring together yogurt, honey and cinnamon is an excellent way to create a satisfying healthy snack. I’ve used this for parties on multiple occasions with great success.

It’s easy, healthy, and economical, and would also go well with quinoa granola, if you wanted to eat it as yogurt instead.

How to make yogurt fruit dip

This yogurt fruit dip recipe is laughably easy, but everyone who’s tried it says it’s amazing! To make this yogurt fruit dip, you simply have to combine plain yogurt, honey, cinnamon, and a little vanilla extract. Give it a good stir and serve alongside your favorite fruit — we like apples best with this dip, but banana slices, strawberries, grapes, and pears would also be delicious.

If you prefer a thicker dip, use plain Greek yogurt instead of regular yogurt. Feel free play around with using skyr or another type of yogurt (and let us know how it turns out!). You could also make this with vanilla-flavored yogurt; if you go that route I’d omit the honey and vanilla extract if I were you since most vanilla yogurts contain sugar already.

How to store yogurt fruit dip

This yogurt dip keeps in the fridge for up to five days in a tightly sealed container. If you plan on making a big batch of this dip, I’d recommend doling out only however much fruit dip you’ll be eating in one sitting. That way you’re not double dipping in the big batch of dip! Also, your yogurt fruit dip might separate a little in the fridge — that’s normal! Just give it a good stir before serving.

    Jet lag is the worst. I know everyone says the best way to get over it is to force yourself to operate in your normal schedule, but I found that not to work for me particularly when travelling west to east. I just had to sleep and let my body fix itself.

      Yes, jet lag is no fun! I’m finally mainly over it after a week of forcing myself back on the schedule :) But it was much better for me than last year, where it took me almost 1 month to feel normal again!

    Delicious dip. Served it with upside-down apple cake, instead of whipped cream.
