Cream Cheese and Greek Yogurt Fruit Dip


Michelle has a mission to use up some cream cheese in stock. She prepared this Cream Cheese and Greek Yogurt Fruit Dip as dessert for the South Arm Cooking Club for Seniors.

This Cream Cheese and Greek Yogurt Fruit Dip is Michelle’s family favourite. Her kids will eat the double amount of fruit whenever this dip is served. The dip tastes like caramel and it’s very creamy.

Greek yogurt or strained yogurt is much higher in protein than regular yogurt. It adds nutrition to recipes that usually call for cream, sour cream or plain yogurt. If you usually use sour cream, try mixing together half sour cream and half low fat Greek yogurt for more protein and calcium.

Based on PC choice brand product; plain yogurt has 8 grams of protein per 175g serving while Greek yogurt can have 18 grams of protein per 175g serving.

More protein keeps you feeling fuller longer.

Ingredients

  • 1 package cream cheese (light or regular), softened
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt (low fat or regular)
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • assorted cut fruit

  1. My grandmother used to make us summer fruits using a very similar recipe, but no cream cheese.

    Make the dressing and stir in blueberries or green grapes (off the stem). Serve in individual bowls.

    I don’t have an official recipe, but just stir two tablespoons or so of brown sugar and a half teaspoon of cinnamon into a container of light sour cream. You could use greek yogurt instead.

    If you can get the Three Gods brand of greek yogurt in Honey flavor, try it. It doesn’t need any dressing up to be almost like a dessert!

    1 cup water
    1/2 to 1 cup brown sugar depend on how sweet you like or use white sugar if you plan to tint muffins

    Mix all together and pour into muffin tin steam for 30 to 45 mins.

    Gung Hay Fatt Choy!
