Last week I went to a baby shower. They served brunch which is definitely my favorite meal – a combination of breakfast and lunch? Yum. They had a fruit tray with the yummiest fruit dip. The host had made A LOT of fruit dip and so sent some home with me. It was so delicious that I wanted to drink it instead of dip fruit into it. But after asking her what was in it I thought twice about drinking it. Ha. Anyway, but do you know what did happen? We ate way more fruit than we normally do because who doesn’t love to dunk fruit into dip?
I decided I needed to come up with a dip that I felt a little better about consuming in large quantities and feeding to my kids. The ingredients in this dip are natural and definitely fall into my definition of clean eating. The best part about this dip is that it is super refreshing. You don’t don’t feel heavy or sugar overloaded after eating it. Perfect for an afternoon snack pick-me-up.

This dip only has 3 ingredients. Can you tell we like simple recipes? The first thing is to combine 1/4 cup lemon juice with 1/4 cup honey. Place in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer for a few minutes to combine the flavors and thicken just slightly. Remove from the heat and let cool to room temperature.
Next mix with 1 cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt. (If it is too tart for your kids, you could use Vanilla Greek yogurt) Whisk together until smooth and creamy. Then serve with your favorite fruit! It is that simple.
