I don’t enjoy baking. Or making desserts. It’s not something I can explain. It’s just the truth.

But even though I don’t like to make desserts, I do like to *eat* desserts.

When I crave something dessert-like I need it to be effortless. And given the number of calories I’ve swallowed over the holiday season so far, I also need it to be healthy.

That’s why I invented this chocolatey, decadent yet healthy fruit dip made of Stonyfield Organic Greek Yogurt and cocoa.

There’s cinnamon in there too.

I loooovvvveeee cinnamon and chocolate together.

Oh, and there’s an optional pinch of cayenne to give this fruit dip pizzazz.

It’s so good.

I swear, this fruit dip is the easiest and tastiest thing I make when friends visit. Just mix and serve. Even I don’t mind doing that!

This fruit dip is easy to make, healthy AND decadent. It's the perfect dip to make when company is coming over for coffee or drinks. The cayenne pepper in the recipe is optional. Try adding a tiny pinch, mix it in and then taste. You shouldn't be able to tell it's there. It's just a little background tingle that makes the dip extra special.

    This is a great recipe! I replaced the brown sugar with a tablespoon of maple syrup. This is a great fall treat with apple wedges!

  2. Rosie says:

    I adore this! I am fond of Greek yogurt, but never thought of using it this way. Also, the same for cinnamon!!! I’m into fall baking and I’m crazy for cinnamon, and this is a perfect way to use it – unexpected little add to an already super treat!!! Wow!

  3. Shawna says:

    I liked it a lot! I found myself scraping the rest of the bowl when it was pretty much gone! But it definitely didn’t taste like expected it to.. It tasted very cinnamon-y to me and I expected it to taste more chocolate-y. Is there a way to fix this the next time I make it? I definitely want to make it again!

  4. Love the sound of this and pinned! I did want to tell you that there were so many pop-ups that I’m discouraged to visit back. :(

  5. Kim C says:

    My favorite fruit dip is simple: greek yogurt, cinnamon and honey.

  6. Anne says:

    I often have fruit with yogurt and honey for lunch, but I don’t think of it as a dip. One thing I do like for dessert with fruit–especially strawberries–is sour cream mixed with a little brown sugar. Simple but really good.

  7. Sharon K says:

    Christine, I don’t know if you got my response about the lime yogurt dip . . . I responded but it only seems to appear if you ‘hover’ over the Reply button (which is really weird). But, in case you can’t see my response, here it is . . . the lime yogurt dip is 8 oz Cool Whip (I use light) and 2 6oz containers of Yoplait Key Lime yogurt mixed together. Easy peasy. I actually got the recipe from another food blogger (http://www.iheartnaptime.net/key-lime-yogurt-fruit-dip/). I imagine it would be good with any kind of yogurt; I just happen to love key lime.

  8. Looks yummy. I love fruit with yogurt dip, the cocoa can only make it that much better!

    I have a lime yogurt fruit dip that is easy and delish! This dark chocolate yogurt dip sounds heavenly!

    • Christine Pittman says:

      Sharon, What’s in the lime yogurt dip? It sounds delicious! Thanks :)

      • Sharon K says:

        Christine, It is very easy — 8 oz Cool Whip (i use light) and 2 6 oz containers of Key Lime yogurt (I used Yoplait, but I am sure it would be good with any preferred brand of key lime flavored yogurt) and just mix it together. It has a nice lime flavor, not overpowering and is very refreshing. I imagine that you could use any flavor of yogurt. (I got the recipe from another food blogger: http://www.iheartnaptime.net/key-lime-yogurt-fruit-dip/). Enjoy!!

  10. Sharon K says:

    This sounds yummy! I love dark chocolate and love Greek yogurt . . . will definitely have to try this!

  11. My favorite fruit dip would be simple–Greek yogurt with honey.

    • Christine Pittman says:

      Ada, I also love Greek yogurt with honey. Or with fig preserves! That’s what I had for breakfast today. It was wonderful.

  12. Karen says:

    A mixture of yogurt and cream cheese with lemon and vanilla.

    • Christine Pittman says:

      Karen, I’m curious: Does it end up tasting a bit like cheesecake? I do a drizzle on pastries that has cream cheese in it and that’s the effect I get. Love it!

  13. Barbara Mc / Whenihave Time says:

    I love caramel or chocolate dip with fruit!

  14. Heather says:

    My favorite fruit dip is marshmallow fluff and cream cheese whipped together. Yummy!!

    • Christine Pittman says:

      Heather, That sounds AMAZING. Is it equal amounts of fluff and cream cheese? I have to try it!

      • Heather says:

        yes, I usually use a small jar of fluff and an 8 oz block of cream cheese. Whip together and enjoy! You can eat it with spoon, it’s that good!!

        • Christine Pittman says:

          Heather, I am absolutely swooning. I might have to go get the ingredients to try it immediately!

  15. Jennie says:

    Raspberry yogurt mixed with cool whip. So light and delish!

    • Christine Pittman says:

      Jennie, That sounds so good! Is it equal amounts yogurt and cool whip? I can’t wait to try it.

      • Jennie says:

        I would recommend starting with equal amounts, and then just adjust according to your taste. Strawberry yogurt is also really good for this too, but I prefer the tartness of raspberry. Yoplait yogurt works really well for this mix. I have also frozen the mixture and it’s kind of like a lowfat semifreddo. Just thaw 5-10 mins before serving. Hope you like it! :)

  16. Elizabeth G. says:

    I like yogurt.

  17. jan says:

    Our favorite fruit dip is homemade carmel. served warm.

    • Christine Pittman says:

      Jan, I haven’t made caramel in years. Thanks for the reminder. I know it would be a treat for the kids to see how it’s made. And then to eat it!

  18. Emily says:

    This chocolate dip sounds amazing! I also really love apples with caramel.

    • Christine Pittman says:

      Emily, Thanks! I love apples with caramel too. Even the packets you can get of them now. Such a perfect treat. Reminds me of eating caramel apples as kids.

    my fave is a caramel dip.

  22. Megan K says:

    It’s a marshmallow fluffy and caramel dip! Soooo yummy!

  23. I love dipping fruit into lime flavored yogurt. So refreshing!

  24. Sheri B. says:

    My favorite fruit dip is lemon curd mixed with vanilla yogurt, so light and delicious!

    • Christine Pittman says:

      Sheri, What an amazing idea. I love lemon and vanilla together. Do you use equal amounts of curd and yogurt or would the lemon flavor be too strong?

  25. MaryB says:

    I like Greek Yogurt, seasoned with spices (cinnamon, etc) and some brown sugar.
