Healthy eating: 3 light and sweet fruit dips made with Greek yogurt

MILWAUKEE -- Whether your a kid or a kid at heart -- dip makes eating food more fun! However, it isn't always the healthiest. In this week's Dining with Duria, Angelica shows us how to prepare three fruit dips that all use Greek yogurt as a bit of a healthier base.

Regular Fruit Dip

Ingredients:

  • 1 (32 oz) container of Vanilla Greek Yogurt
  • 1 (8 oz) container of Lite Cool Whip
  • 1 (3.4 ounce) box dry instant vanilla pudding mix
  • Fruit for serving

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, mix together vanilla yogurt, Cool Whip, and pudding mix  until completely combined and without any lumps.  The mixture will be a bit gritty at first, since the pudding hasn’t had a chance to dissolve into the yogurt mixture yet.
  2. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to chill for about 30 minutes.  Serve with your fruit of choice.
  3. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

  • 2/3 cup vanilla Greek yogurt (which is one 5.3 oz container)
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 2 tbsp mini chocolate chips
  • Fruit or pretzels for dipping

  2. Taste and add more powdered sugar or more cocoa powder to liking.
  3. Stir in chocolate chips, reserving a few to sprinkle on top of the dip right before serving.
