Summer Fun Fruit Dip

Posted on 20. Jun, 2010 in Food

Remember the good old days of summer with marshmellow fluff dip? Instead of making this sugar loaded dip this weekend for my fruit platters, we got innovative in the kitchen.

Very easy and simple: a tub of either fat free or low fat whipped cream (mildly defrosted). Add Raw Aguave Nectar and Fresh Cinnamon. Mix together and place in fridge to chill. That is it, easy and simple. The kids love it as well as adults.

Even considered making it with non-fat greek yogurt (vanilla with honey), but haven’t tried that one yet.  I will keep you updated if I make it.
