This is one of the best times of the year when farmer’s markets start popping up, gardens are producing fresh produce, and the prices of fruit drop in the grocery store because they are finally in season. I buy bananas every week, but I am a terrible fruit eater otherwise. Both my husband and daughter are great fruit eaters, but me, I rather eat broccoli. Yeah, I’m weird like that.
A couple years back my fellow bridesmaids and I threw a lemon and lime themed bridal shower for my best friend, and I tried to come up with foods that all included either lemon or lime. After a little experimenting, I came up with this key lime fruit dip. It was a hit at the shower and I had so many recipe requests, but I was almost embarrassed to share it with them because it is so easy and simple.
I loved this dip as well and ate the leftovers for the rest of the week with grapes. It actually had me looking forward to eating fruit! I happily ate grape after grape until all of the dip was gone! For Mother’s Day, I took this dip and some fruit to brunch with my family and I remembered how much I enjoy eating fruit whenever I have this dip alongside it! This easy dip would be perfect for the upcoming 4th of July festivities or for Labor Day picnics!
A few things I love about this dip. Obviously, the best part is that it only requires 2 ingredients, yogurt and whipped topping. This dip also tastes better as it sits, so it is a great make ahead dish. Also, you can use low fat or low sugar ingredients so that you aren’t ruining all of the great nutritional value of the fruit you are dunking into it!
If you are an avid fruit eater or need a little more encouragement like I do, then I am sure you will enjoy this Easy Two Ingredient Key Lime Fruit Dip with all of the great summer produce!
- 2 containers key lime yogurt, any brand, low fat/sugar if desired
- 1 12 oz. container frozen whipped topping, low fat if desired
- Set out your whipped topping to defrost.
- When soft, add the two containers of yogurt and stir well to combine.
- Cover and set in the fridge until serving, best if sits overnight! Enjoy!
