If you were to show up at my house each night, you would see that this Clean Eating Chocolate Fruit Dip is my go-to snack before bed.
I rarely tire of eating it.
There is just something about chocolate that ends a day perfectly.
This Clean Eating Chocolate Fruit Dip recipe was born when I was trying to get in shape a few years ago.
My clothes were tight and I knew I was not taking care of myself. It’s embarrassing to admit when most of my friends think I am kind of a health nut.
But nobody is perfect and health journeys are never easy.
Enter: portion control. Why does it have to be so hard?!
I began to realize that I could eat all the healthy, “clean”, nutrient dense food I wanted, but if my body wasn’t burning all that fuel it would find a place to store it.
Let’s just say, my skinny jeans don’t exactly appreciate where my body chooses to store it. 😉
That is when I jumped on the Greek yogurt bandwagon. Do you remember a few years ago, when Greek yogurt was this exciting new health food? It was all the rage and I knew I wanted to try it!Skinny Chocolate Fruit Dip for One | Clean Eating | Gluten-Free | 100 Calories Click To Tweet
I couldn’t believe how similar it was to sour cream, yet high in protein!
I started to use it as a substitute for oil in baking and subbing it for sour cream in savory dips.
Then one evening, a light bulb went off. I wondered if I could create a sweet dip to accompany my all-time favorite snack, a crisp apple.
My original recipe used liquid stevia to sweeten, but I am partial to coconut sugar now. I will be the first to admit, this dip may not be sweet enough for your taste buds. If that is the case, increase the amount of coconut sugar in 1 tsp increments until it is the perfect dip for you.
I prefer a slightly richer-tasting dip to balance out the sweetness of my fruit.
Okay, I know you are chomping at the bit to try this incredible Clean Eating Chocolate Fruit Dip recipe so let’s get to it!
Here are the ingredients you will need:
1/2 cup plain Greek Yogurt
1 Tbsp cocoa powder
2 tsp coconut sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/16 ( a couple drops) almond extract
Dash of salt
Apple, strawberries, or fruit of choice
Mix all ingredients (minus the fruit) in a small bowl.
Wash and slice apple. Cut into wedges or prepare other fruit of choice. Enjoy your healthy fruit dip!

Featuring this recipe on Allergy Free Thursdays this week, thanks for sharing it! I can’t wait to mix up a bowl when those chocolate cravings hit. Can’t wait to see what you share this week!
Thanks Celeste for the feature! Wow! Yes, this dip totally satisfies any chocolate craving 😉
This sounds so perfect and I love that you made the recipe for a single serving! That is one of my main problems – portion control. I haven’t made this yet, but I’m going to order coconut sugar so I can try it soon. We live in such a small town, I can’t find it anywhere. Even though I haven’t tried it yet, I’m featuring it as one of my additional features at You Link It, We Make It tomorrow! Pinning and hope to see you back at the party!
Delicious, thanks for sharing with Hearth and soul blog hop, pinning and tweeting
That dip looks amazing! And, such a great addition to fruit without going overboard on calories!
I don’t think you will find a lower calorie chocolate dip that still uses whole food ingredients and no weird sugar substitute. Thanks for your kind words, Gayle! I hope you enjoy this yummy dip 🙂
This looks wonderful! Thank you for sharing, can’t wait to try it, Pinned 🙂
Ummmm, REEE-diculous. This little heap of heaven looks and sounds delectable. You cannot beat a chocolate recipe that is healthy! I also love the fact that it’s a single serving. I’d go back for seconds and thirds, and then end up just standing over the bowl with a spoon;-)
Thanks so much for sharing this awesome recipe. Will definitely be pinning! #SundayBlogHop
Put the spoon down. LOL You made me laugh out loud, Katie! Gosh, I am blushing from your gushing. …And apparently, I rhyme in comments now 😉 Thank you so much for stopping by and making my day. Enjoy your “little heap of heaven” when you make it!
I have always been a big fan of yogurt both for eating and as a substitute for sour cream or buttermilk in baking. Thanks for partying with us on Creative K Kids Tasty Tuesdays.
It’s always fun finding new ways to use yogurt. The versatility is amazing!
This dip sure does look amazing! I do not have the patience to tweak stuff in the kitchen so I’m sure glad you have done if for me! 🙂
Well that is part of my job requirements 😉 Can’t wait for you to try it! Stop back soon, Tricia!
This is right up my alley! I am all about eating healthy and portion control. I would probably just eat it right out of the bowl. #SundayBlogHop
I do too! Once my apples are gone, I just devour it on it’s own. Ha!
This looks insanely good. I might even try putting it into Popsicle molds for healthy fudge pops. Mmmm. Thanks for sharing!!
Oh there ya go! I never even thought of that, Johanna! When are you going to guest post a recipe for me girl?? 🙂
Yum! What an awesome healthy treat! Taking the guilt out of snacking!
