Creamy delicious Brown Sugar Yogurt Fruit Dip is the perfect compliment to any fruit platter!


I adore all things food when it comes to the holidays. I can’t get enough of the special treats only made this time of year like my grandmother’s fudge recipe. The scent of melting chocolate always takes me back to my childhood and in more recent times to my mother’s kitchen.

But occasionally I find myself wanting something besides chocolate and other sweets (GASP!) Those that read my blog know I have a serious sweet tooth. I hardly ever turn down a dessert. This Brown Sugar Yogurt Fruit Dip is a great alternative to all the holiday sweets. The sweetness of the sugar with the vanilla yogurt and just a touch of cinnamon is so delicious. I say brown sugar and cinnamon are the essence of holidays food, so this dip absolutely works for Christmas-time. It’s super versatile from season to season.

For a festive look for the holidays, pair the dip with fresh red strawberries on a pretty green platter like I’ve done here. Red and green grapes, kiwi and star fruit are a few great choices for a Christmassy-looking platter.

The best part is that this dip is so simple the kids can help you whip it up in just a couple minutes. I recommend you make it ahead of time so the flavors can meld together. It stores wonderfully in the fridge so you can make it up to 3 days early.

You can serve it pretty much any time of day. This dip is a great addition to brunch, side dish for lunch, an appetizer or of course a dessert. It’s perfect for a wide variety of parties and events. In fact, my daughter loves dunking her strawberries in this dip as an after school snack! It’s totally kid-friendly

Brown Sugar Yogurt Dip

1-1/2 cups Stonyfield Smooth and Creamy French Vanilla Yogurt

3 tablespoons brown sugar

1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Lay a cheese cloth inside a fine mesh strainer. Place the strainer over a mixing bowl.  Add the yogurt to the cheese cloth and let set for 1 hour. * This step is optional but it allows some of the liquid to drain out, which will make the dip creamier.

Transfer the yogurt to a small bowl. Add the brown sugar and cinnamon and star to combine.

Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container such as a mason jar for up to 3 days.

Serve with fresh fruit such as strawberries, kiwi, grapes, and apple slices.
