Looking for an easy appetizer or dessert idea? This greek yogurt fruit dip is not only so quick to make, but it’s super tasty and nutritious too! It’s such a fun way to jazz up a simple fruit platter and provide some extra flavour.

You only need about 5 minutes to throw this dip together, using ingredients that you will likely already have in your kitchen.

As a dietitian, I’m also happy to share that greek yogurt is packed with nutrition benefits, like protein, calcium, and probiotics. That said, if you want to make a dairy-free/vegan version of this recipe, simply swap the greek yogurt with a dairy-free alternative!

What Is Fruit Dip?

Fruit dip is essentially just a dip for fresh fruits! It’s a super quick, easy, and delicious addition to a fruit platter – great for an appetizer or dessert idea.

Traditionally, fruit dip is made with ingredients like marshmallow fluff and/or cream cheese. Store-bought versions are available too, but they’re often filled with plenty of preservatives, thickeners, and artificial flavours.

While those ones are undeniably delicious, this fruit dip recipe is made a little more nutritious with an ingredient you may already have on hand: plain greek yogurt!

Plain greek yogurt is rich in protein, which is an awesome pairing with fruit. It helps to make fruit more filling and lessens spikes in blood sugar. Plus, its taste and texture is so good 🙂

What Fruit Is Best For Dipping?

Most fruits can be served with fruit dips, but below are some of my favourites!

In the summer months, I’d recommend serving this fruit dip with:

  • sliced nectarines or peaches
  • whole strawberries
  • smaller berries, like blueberries or raspberries (serve with toothpicks!)
  • cut up pineapple chunks
  • banana slices
  • halved apricots

In the fall/winter months, you can serve this fruit dip with:

  • sliced apples
  • sliced pears
  • orange slices (I particularly like mandarin or sumo oranges here)
  • fresh grapes

TIP: You may lean towards fruits that are big enough to hold and dip with your hands, but you can always serve smaller fruits with toothpicks or a fork!

Tips For Making A Fruit Platter With Dip

  1. Make the yogurt fruit dip in advance and store it in an airtight container in the fridge until you’re ready to serve it. If you’re bringing it along with you for a summer BBQ or picnic, be sure to keep it in a cooler bag with an ice pack!
  2. Serve the dip in a small bowl and surround it with an assortment of colourful, fresh fruits! I’d recommend choosing at least 3 different kinds/colours of fruits to make things pretty 🙂
  3. You can wash and prep the fruit in advance. For any fruit that browns easily (e.g. bananas, apples, pears), you may want to cut them right before serving. That said, a squeeze of lemon juice and storing covered in the fridge can help delay the browning process a bit!
  4. As mentioned above, you may want to serve this fruit platter with some toothpicks or small forks. This is especially helpful if you’re serving fruit dip with smaller fruits, like blueberries or grapes.
