Expert tips

  • Yogurt: We recommend using full-fat or 2% Greek yogurt for the thickest, richest dip possible.
  • Mixing the dip: It’s really easy to mix this chocolate dip with an electric hand mixer or stand mixer. You could also use a food processor to get it really smooth. However, mixing by hand totally works.
  • Keep fruit fresh: To prevent the fruit you’re serving this with from browning, especially apples and bananas, squeeze a bit of fresh lemon juice over the tops to prevent them from changing color.
  • Garnish: If you’ll be serving this as part of a fruit tray for a party, or just want to make it look extra fancy, consider adding a garnish of chocolate shavings, mini chocolate chips or sprinkles over the top.
  • Dairy-free option: If you’d like to make this vegan and dairy free, use dairy-free yogurt and maple syrup or agave and not honey.

Frequently asked questions

What do you dip in chocolate dip?

Chocolate dip can be served with a variety of different dippers. To keep things nutritious and low calorie, for snacks we like to dip fruit, like banana slices, apple slices, and strawberries. For a party or dessert, you can offer more indulgent options, like marshmallows, graham crackers, shortbread cookies, cubed Rice Krispie treats or pound cake.

Can I make fruit dip ahead of time?

Because this dip is great served chilled, feel free to make it in advance of a party or event and store it in the fridge. You could make this up to a day ahead of time. Cut the fruit just before serving.

Does chocolate yogurt fruit dip need to be refrigerated?

Yes, because of the dairy in the Greek yogurt, we suggest only leaving the dip out for about 30 minutes to an hour at a time.

Variations

Feel free to customize this chocolate yogurt dip to make it your own. Here are some options:

  • Mint chocolate dip: Instead of vanilla extract, add a few drops of peppermint extract for a refreshing minty flavor.
  • Peanut butter: Chocolate and peanut butter make a great combination. Stir in a few spoonfuls of peanut butter for a new flavor.
  • Add chocolate chips: Stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons of chocolate chips for extra texture and chocolate goodness. You could also just sprinkle some over the top.

Storage recommendations

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 to 4 days. Give it a good stir before enjoying it again. We do not recommend storing leftover chocolate dip in the freezer because as it thaws it may become watery and the texture may change.
