Here are just a few of my favorite yogurt fruit dip recipes. It’s easy to invent your own recipes too.
It’s fun to come up with yummy dips and they are delicious with just about any fresh fruit.
These recipes are perfect if you want to bring a fruit tray to an event or potluck. Even if your staying home, you can enjoy fruit and yogurt for breakfast or dessert.
Any of these recipes can be modified to include your favorite kind of yogurt. You can use low fat, non fat or whole milk yogurt. Substituting Greek yogurt will make the dip thicker and richer.
Honey Yogurt Dip
1 cup strained homemade yogurt or 1 (7 oz.) container Greek yogurt
1/4 cup honey
Ground cinnamon, to taste
Combine the yogurt and honey in a small bowl. Mix thoroughly until smooth and well combined. Add a very small amount of cinnamon to taste. Cover and refrigerate. Serve with fresh fruit.
Nutty Yogurt Fruit Dip Recipe
1 cup homemade yogurt or a good brand of plain yogurt
1/4 cup sweetner (we used honey, but you can use whatever sweetner you prefer)
1/4 cup peanut butter, cashew butter or almond butter (softened)
Combine all ingredients, while beating until smooth. This makes about 1 cup of very yummy fruit dip and it’s super good with bananas and apples.
Strawberry Yogurt Dip
1 tub 8 oz thawed Cool Whip
2 8 oz. containers of strawberry yogurt
1 cup chopped fresh strawberries
Combine Cool Whip with 2 cartons strawberry yogurt. Add 1 cup chopped fresh strawberries and mix well. Serve as dip with fresh fruit like bananas, apple, pears or strawberries.
Citrus Yogurt Dip
1 8 oz. carton strawberry yogurt
1/2 tsp. finely shredded orange peel
1/4 tsp. poppy seed
1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon
In a small bowl, stir ingredients together. Serve with fresh fruit for dipping. Makes about 3/4 cup.
Vanilla Maple Yogurt Dip
1/4 cup vanilla yogurt
1 tablespoon real maple syrup (I found a good deal at Costco)
1/2 teaspoon crushed pistachio nuts
Combine the yogurt and maple syrup and chill.
Serve with apple, pear and grapes. The tartness of green grapes is really good with this dip.
Drizzle yogurt dip with maple syrup and sprinkle with pistachio nuts.
Lemon Yogurt Fruit Dip Recipe
8 oz. carton lemon yogurt
8 oz. carton cultured sour cream
1 tsp. ginger
1 tbsp. honey
Fresh grated lemon rind, if desired
Assorted fresh fruit

Serve with assorted fresh fruit such as whole strawberries, pineapple chunks, seedless grapes, melon wedges and apple, pear or banana slices. Makes about 1 cup.
This is really yummy with waldorf salad.
Yogurt Fruit Dip
16 oz. vanilla Yogurt
1 cup shredded coconut
6 tbsp. orange juice concentrate
1/2 cup pineapple juice

Apricot Yogurt Dip with Pistachios
2 cups strained plain yogurt
1 cup dried apricots
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon crushed pistachio nuts
Place the apricots and sugar in a small saucepan and add just enough water to cover. Bring to a simmer and cook until the apricots are very soft, about 10 minutes. Let cool.
Drain the apricots and puree them in a food processor. Add the strained yogurt and process to combine. Chill for at least one hour. (This can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.) Garnish with the pistachios.
Serve with fresh fruit
