Yogurt and fruit are two of my most favorite snack foods. I eat them every single day and never get sick of them. I rarely combine the two though, unless it is in the form of an occasional smoothie. Last week I decided to try this honey yogurt dip to pair with fresh fruit. This is barely a recipe, as it is only three ingredients, but somehow I managed to mess it up. The original recipe calls for 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. I really like cinnamon so I just added 1/2 teaspoon right off the bat. Big mistake. The whole thing tasted so cinnamon-y, I could barely stand it. Thankfully I was able to fix it by simply adding more yogurt and honey until the cinnamon flavor had mellowed, but let this be a warning to you – err on the side of caution. You can always add more cinnamon but it’s not so easy to take it away! Next time I will add just a tiny bit, because I think the honey yogurt flavor is fantastic and I really want the honey to be the star of the show. I have never used Greek yogurt before this, but I am now a big fan of it. It is deliciously thick and creamy. I will make this again soon, correctly next time, for a wonderful healthy snack! I also think it would be a welcome addition to any brunch or light lunch menu.
Honey Yogurt Dip
1 (7 oz.) container 2% Greek yogurt
1/4 cup honey (Use local! You’ll taste the difference.)
Ground cinnamon, to taste
Combine the yogurt and honey in a small bowl. Mix thoroughly until smooth and well combined. Add a very small amount of cinnamon, taste, and adjust accordingly. Cover and refrigerate. Serve with fresh fruit.
