Ever since our family has been dealing with the dreaded “d-word”…diabetes, not divorce, in case you’re wondering…I have been trying to find ways to keep my Mississippi sweet tooth satisfied without steering way too far off course.
Even the best fruit can get a little old if you realize that you’re gonna be eating an apple a day…every day…every week…every month…every year…for the rest of your life.
So I have been trying to find ways to make sure that my next weekly produce box from Imperfect Foods is a rewsward, instead of a punishing reminder of just how fat and unhealthy I really am.
One way to keep fruit from becoming just another box that you check off your My Fitness Pal or whatever other food diary that you happen to keep…if you actually do keep one at all…is to keep a dip around to dip your fruits and veggies in…perhaps to disguise the taste a little, right?!
So here I’m gonna share one of my favorite dips—an low-carb, dairy-free, creamy smooth, ultra-impressive, decadently chocolate, ooey-gooey, yummilicious dip that is perfect when paired with all kinds of goodies—any fresh fruit, chocolate-dipped strawberries, angel food cake, apples, marshmallows, dried fruit, nuts—certain to satisfy your chocolate craving–without the guilt.
Greek Yogurt…1/2C…you can use really any unsweetened Greek yogurt, but the higher the fat content, the creamier your dip will turn out.
Sweeteners…1Tbsp…you can really use whatever sweetener you like–stevia, honey, , sugar, agave syrup
Pinch cayenne pepper
Place ingredients in a medium-sized, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for about 90 seconds. Stir until completely smooth and well-incorporated, and the dip is thickened and entirely smooth.
