I have been searching for a primal fruit dip recipe that I could set out at parties when we entertain. I love dipping fruit but most of the traditional fruit dips are chocolate or caramel which are generally not Paleo or even primal. And, I generally offer local organic apples when setting out a fruit dip because they are plentiful here in Vermont. You could also set out slices of orange or fresh strawberries for your guests to enjoy. Look for in season and organic whenever possible.
Primal Fruit Dip Recipe
For those not familiar with primal/Paleo, diet, people who follow a Paleo diet do not eat processed foods, grains, dairy, anything artificial, sweeteners, beans, peanuts, etc. People who follow a Primal diet typically follow the Paleo diet but allow the addition of high-quality dairy like Greek yogurt. There is more to the explanation but that gives you the basic idea.
Greek yogurt is typically strained two or three times compared to the one time that traditional yogurt has been strained. That makes Greek yogurt the perfect choice when making this primal fruit dip recipe. You want the fruit dip to be thicker so it sticks to your fruit.
For those that are not following a primal diet, you can set out crisps, crackers or rounds for guests to dip as well.
When I choose Greek yogurt, I make sure to choose a Greek yogurt like Stonyfield Farms Organic Greek yogurt that has live active cultures. Live active cultures help maintain intestinal health. Choosing an organic Greek from Stonyfield Farms Organic means that there are no toxic pesticides or GMOs used. Simply Organic spices and extracts are the safest, highest quality herbs and spices I have found.
If you’re looking for a few more primal fruit dip recipes, try this vegan caramel apple dip by The Spruce Eats and this paleo caramel sauce by Bakerita. Check out my tips for staying paleo if you follow the paleo diet.
- 1 cup plain Stonyfield Greek yogurt
- 2 tbsp honey (you can add more/less depending on how sweet you like it)
- 1 teaspoon Simply Organic Madagascar pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp Simply Organic cinnamon
- Fresh fruit of your choice
- Mix all of the ingredients except the fruit well.
- Slice the fruit and set on a plate. If you are using apples, spritz them with lemon juice to stop them from turning brown when exposed to air.
