LOOKING for: fruit dip w/plain yogurt or sour cream

Posted by jenn (My Page) on

Does anyone have a tried-and-true fruit dip with a plain yogurt or sour cream base? I've seen many recipes with marshmallow cream, cream cheese, or Cool Whip, but I want to make one a little healthier (sorry). I have a recipe I'd like to try that calls for sour cream, brown sugar, and vanilla, but I haven't tried it yet.

Does anyone have a tried-and-true version that everyone loves?

RE: LOOKING for: fruit dip w/plain yogurt or sour cream

Hi there from snowy Pa- I used to do alot of catering a few years ago and I used a simple fruit dip recipe-1 container of Breyer's rasberry or strawberry yogart with fruit on the bottom with 1 small container of Cool-Whip.
Mix together,can use a drop of red food coloring if desired.Chill and serve with fresh fruit. Enjoy! Alanna

Can't be of much help - the only tried and true I have is 4 parts sour cream to one part brown sugar - but its good and sometimes simple is best.

BTW - Jenn, I just posted your cranberry lemon cookies over on the cooking forum - and I often make your recipe for quick dill potatoes - thanks!

Hi Woodie -- thanks for your version of the dip. I agree, simple is often best. Do you use yours for all kinds of fruit?

I saw your post about the cranberry cookies -- they're a winner, aren't they? Oh and the quick dill potatoes, another winner, and I was going to post that in response to the person asking for a potato recipe for ham on Christmas but didn't have the recipe handy. IMO it's a lot easier than mashed potatoes and even tastier too. Thanks for sharing, I'm glad you like them both. :-)

Thanks, Joe, your recipes look wonderful!

Yes -- thank you, Joe! Unfortunately, I forgot I posted this until now and it's too late for me to get all of the ingredients, but these recipes give me some nice ideas to touch up my own recipe a bit.
