Why organic yogurt?

For this pumpkin yogurt fruit dip, we used organic yogurt: Stonyfield Organic Plain Whole Milk Greek Yogurt. Why organic yogurt? There are many benefits to buying organic: it’s made with less chemicals, is better for the cows, better for the farmers, and better for the Earth. And, it tastes better! You may remember I visited Stonyfield’s organic dairy farms in Vermont last fall and it was an incredible experience to meet the cows and farmers, and learn more about organic dairy production. After that trip, I vowed to buy organic dairy as much as possible. For our family, the extra dollar or two is more than worth spending.

For this recipe, you can also use plain YoBaby containers. YoBaby is organic yogurt by Stonyfield made for kids 6 months to 2 years with added bb-12 specifically for baby’s gut health. Our toddler Larson loves it, and there’s always some in our refrigerator! His favorite flavor is the No Sugar Added Mango and Banana YoBaby. Here are a few shots of Larson showing off apples (and other produce!) from our local farmer’s market and his favorite YoBaby organic yogurt.

How to make pumpkin yogurt fruit dip

This pumpkin yogurt fruit dip recipe is almost shamefully simple. But, there’s a need for a recipe to get the right quantities of cozy spices and pumpkin. We tweaked this recipe to have just enough pumpkin to be orange in color, but not so much that the dip becomes sour. With the tang of Greek yogurt, there was some tinkering involved on our part to get just the right amount of pumpkin and spices! But making the dip is a serious breeze: just mix together yogurt, pumpkin, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg: and that’s it! Since it’s so simple it would be a great activity to do with kids.

To serve with this easy fruit dip, you can use any fruit, but crisp sweet tart apples were a natural choice. Apples say fall to us, and we had a bunch from our local farmer’s market. Pear slices would be another natural choice. You could also use something like pretzels (or ginger cookies!), but I found I preferred the tangy sweetness of the dip with apples. Plus, using fruit makes it a bit healthier too! I know we’ll be using this one for many fall and winter gatherings to come. Let us know if you make it in the comments below!
