Some kids love fruits, while there are some who hate them. It becomes really difficult for mothers to include fruits in their diet. As we all know, fruits must be an integral part of our diet, and therefore must be included in some way or the other. One way to encourage kids to have fruits is by making their fruit platter yummy and interesting. A fruit dip is a quick and great way to get your kids at the table. So, let's have a look at some mouth-watering recipes.
Delicious Yogurt Fruit Dip Recipes
Plain Dip Recipe
  • ¼ cup - Peach preserves
  • 1 cup - Vanilla yogurt
  • ¼ teaspoon - Cinnamon powder

This is the basic type of fruit dip. The vanilla yogurt used for preparation must be nice and fresh. Using freshly ground cinnamon will enhance the flavor of the fruit dip. Take the peach preserves in a bowl. Add one cup of fresh vanilla yogurt to it. Gently sprinkle ¼ teaspoon of freshly ground cinnamon powder and mix well. Place this mix in a grinder and mix till a uniform, fluffy dip is ready. Store it in the refrigerator for a minimum of 1 hour. Serve it in a small bowl with fresh, sliced fruits.
Hawaiian Recipe
  • 1 cup - Plain yogurt
  • ¼ cup - Honey
  • 8 oz - Pineapple slices
  • 8 oz - Softened cream cheese (low-fat)
  • ½ teaspoon - Ginger (ground)

This is a fruit dip with the Hawaiian touch. Take a pineapple and cut it into slices. Crush the slices and let the juice drain out. Keep the crushed pineapple aside for some time. Take plain yogurt, honey and low-fat cream cheese, previously softened, in a bowl and mix well to get a creamy paste. To this mixture, add ½ teaspoon of ground ginger. Ginger adds a natural flavor to the dip and makes the dip relishing. Add previously crushed pineapple to this mixture and mix well. This dip tastes best with firm fruits like apple, strawberries, etc. If you wish to have this dip with less firm fruits, simply skip adding pineapple to the fruit dip. It will still taste yummy!
Dip with Shredded Coconut
  • 1 cup - Shredded coconut
  • ½ cup - Pineapple juice
  • 16 oz - Yogurt (vanilla flavor)
  • 6 tablespoons - Orange juice concentrate
  • ½ teaspoon - Poppy seeds

For all the kids who love coconut flavor, this fruit dip is an extremely tasty treat. Collect the ingredients mentioned above. Try shredding the coconut just before you start making the dip so that its freshness and rich flavor is intact. In a bowl, add shredded coconut, orange juice concentrate, vanilla yogurt, and fresh pineapple juice. Mix the ingredients till a smooth mixture is obtained. Add ½ teaspoon of poppy seeds to it and mix evenly. Cool this dip in the refrigerator overnight and enjoy it the next day.
Dip with Vanilla Flavor
  • 2 tablespoons - Brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon - Vanilla extract
  • 1 cup - Plain Yogurt

This method makes a creamier fruit dip. To obtain a creamy yogurt, place plain yogurt in a strainer containing paper coffee filter, and keep it over a cup to collect the strained liquid. Let it be in the strainer for at least an hour. After excess liquid is strained out, transfer it to a fresh bowl. Add brown sugar and vanilla extract to it and mix well. You can also use a grinder to form a smooth-textured dip. Refrigerate the fruit dip for an hour or so and serve it with fresh fruits like bananas, grapes, papaya, etc.
Adding apricot, lemon, peanut butter, and strawberry can also add to the flavor of a dip. Apart from these mouth-watering and healthy dips, you can also try out other fruit dip recipes which I am sure, your kids will like. Dips require no cooking and can be prepared in just a few minutes.
