Yogurt Fruit Dip Background – How To Get Your Kids To Eat Yogurt

I’ve turned Avery into a whipping cream fanatic. Every time I go through our local coffee shop’s drive through with her in the car, she begs for whipped cream. It’s just a tiny little cup she can snack on quietly while we get to the next place we need to go. Honestly, I don’t really mind. Everyone is happy and quiet, and that’s what us moms like, right?!

As much as Avery loves whipping cream, she isn’t a huge fan of yogurt. Usually, to get her to eat yogurt, I will have to make it into frozen yogurt or popsicles, or something. For her to eat it, I have to jazz that yogurt up a bit. But I love that yogurt is full of probiotics, calcium, and other beneficial stuff. So I figured if I added something she loved, like whipped cream, to yogurt, it may just get her to eat it.

Well, it worked. She wolfed down this delicious, healthy, and fluffy yogurt fruit dip.

You’ll notice that I used whole milk yogurt in this recipe. If you are trying to eat low-fat, then you can switch it to lower fat yogurt. We just love whole milk yogurt, and feel like it helps us stay fuller longer. And not having a kid nag constantly saying she is hungry and needs a snack for the thousandth time that day is winning.

It amazes me sometimes. The girls say they are full at dinner, but then 10 minutes later, they ask for a snack. Kids…

Tips For Making Yogurt Fruit Dip

  • Slice up your fruit while the whipping cream is whipping.
  • Add the honey to the whipping cream when the whipping cream is just about done. That way it gets more evenly dispersed.
  • For an extra healthy boost, sometimes I like to add a scoop of collagen peptides to the whipping cream. This adds some extra protein and collagen to your healthy snack.
  • For a yummy twist on the flavors, add a sprinkle of cinnamon or pumpkin spice to this yogurt dip recipe.
  • You could also top this dip with some chocolate chips, marshmallows, dried fruit, or nuts.

Yogurt Fruit Dip FAQ

Could I use Greek yogurt?

Yes; the dip will be much thicker, though, so keep that in mind.

What fruit will work well for this fruit dip?

Strawberries, apples, raspberries, sliced bananas, pineapple, blueberries… just about any fruit will do. I like to do easy dipping fruit, like apple slices and strawberries.

Can you use vanilla yogurt in place of plain yogurt?

Yes, I would just make sure to adjust the sweetness, since vanilla yogurt typically has sugar already added into it. You may just need to use less honey.

Can I make vanilla yogurt out of plain yogurt?

If you want to give this a vanilla flavor boost, add a 1/2 tsp vanilla extract to the mixture.

Can I use non-fat or low-fat yogurt?

Of course. The texture may be a little different, but you can definitely make the swap. I like using whole milk yogurt because of creaminess and it makes us feel fuller longer.
