Fruit Dip made with key lime yogurt and lime juice; recipe for Cream Cheese Dip with lime juice for fruit and crackers.
I know I should feel flattered when my family says, “Wow, this is good!” with surprise in their voices, after trying my latest dessert/snack concoction.
But I don’t. I feel kind of offended that they would be surprised.
Like, by now you still don’t expect it to be amazing? I know I’m pretty much just making this stuff up, but still.
This was one of those days. I whipped up this Key Lime Dip pretty quickly, having never made anything like it before, and I dipped some vanilla wafers in it, and gently forced everyone in the house to try it.
They were pleasantly surprised. Jerks.
The Fruitarian was, as expected, happiest of all. There was fresh fruit and sweet fruity dip in the house, and he was allowed to eat it all. It was like heaven for that kid.
He then came up with these brilliant ideas: “We should grow strawberries. We should have fruit trees, like apples, and peaches, and cherries. Can we have a banana tree?”
It’s not exactly banana weather here in Utah, but we did end up having quite a discussion about having a vegetable garden this year. I think the Fruitarian will be the official family gardener this year.
Wish us all luck with that.
This dip came together so fast and easy, even I couldn’t believe it. It is really delicious, and would be perfect for just about any kind of fruit, cookies, graham crackers, etc. It did turn out a little thin, but I thought if I added powdered sugar it would be too sweet, so if you don’t mind your dip a little drippy, the flavor is best this way.
Also, it makes a pretty big batch, so don’t be afraid to halve this one. Or just keep leftovers in the fridge.
Of course, if you have a lot of fruit and fruit dip around, I could just lend you the Fruitarian for a day or so. That skinny kid will take care of it for you!
