If you’ve ever made fruit dip, you know the base consists of cream cheese and refined powdered sugar. Well friends, I’m here to tell you neither are necessary for an out-of-this-world fruit dip. Wanna know the secret?
This recipe is a total life hack. It will feel like you’re cheating when you eat this dip, but you can rest assured knowing this chocolate fruit dip is made of 100% natural, plant-based goodness.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a committed vegan or if you’re committed to nourishing your body with real food, this chocolate fruit dip is the real deal! You could even go a little crazy and put it on other things besides fruit, such as an inner filling for cupcakes or frozen into ice cream.
What I love about this dip is how silky smooth it is, thanks to coconut oil and cocoa powder. It’s awesome to know that you can have a 100% healthy fruit dip without the need for cream cheese or powdered sugar. From now on, this is my go-to fruit dip recipe. I hope you all love it, too!
