Is Spring Finally Here?!

Now that it is finally getting warmer (yay!), I start to really crave fruit.  I came up with this recipe years back when we were going to a pool party.  I wanted to serve fresh fruit with a fruit dip, but the dip that is sold in the stores is not exactly healthy.  This dip can be used on fresh fruit, animal crackers, on top of oatmeal, or simply eaten alone.  Your kids will like it too!

Summer Fruit Dip


1 container of Farmer's Cheese (this is dry curd cottage cheese) if you can't find it, use part skim ricotta

3 heaping tb of plain Greek yogurt 

4 tb crushed pineapple

1 tb orange juice

1/4 cup vanilla almond milk

1/2 cup frozen blueberries (or any berry of your choice)

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla extract 

1 tsp ground ginger


Mix everything together in a food processor, or use a hand blender.  Serve with fruit, cookies, top your oatmeal...get creative!  Store in the refrigerator and serve cold.
