I usually go through yogurt pretty quickly around here but for some reason… over the holidays I’ve slowed down. Probably because I went through my usual holiday phase of “is that healthy? yes? no thanks!” and proceeded to eat something laced with sugar, butter or chocolate. Or all of those.
So back to my January stripped down food kick. I needed to use up yogurt and yogurt makes great dips.
Cinnamon Vanilla Yogurt Dip is a great dip for fresh fruit, especially apples or for pita chips or pita triangles. I haven’t tried it but it would probably be a great topping for plain cheerios or oatmeal too.
Cinnamon Vanilla Dip
*adapted from this recipe on Tastebook.
3/4 cup of fat free, plain yogurt (I like the Balkan style best)
3/4 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 tsp cinnamon
liquid honey to taste (I used about 1 tsp)
combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Let sit for 30 minutes if you want the flavours to combine nicely. Dip away!
