This chocolate fruit dip is a creamy and delicious 4 ingredient treat that’s perfect for after school snacks and parties. It’s even packed with protein to make it a healthier option!
We have a history of peanut allergies in our family, including one of my daughters. We feel very fortunate that she’s outgrown the scary aspects of her peanut allergy, but we are still a peanut free household. Recently we discovered SunButter, which is made from sunflower seeds instead of peanuts or tree nuts, is free of the eight most common allergens, and completely safe to bring to school. We are totally hooked on this delicious spread, and recently I used it to put together a fun after school snack for the kids: chocolate fruit dip!
This chocolate fruit dip is made with just four ingredients: chocolate chips, SunButter, Greek yogurt and water. I like to add a little garnish of chocolate sprinkles or chocolate chips, but that’s totally optional. One thing I love about SunButter is that it’s packed with protein and fiber, which helps to keep little tummies full longer! SunButter is also more nutritious than traditional nut butters and is naturally high in Vitamin E, magnesium and iron. SunButter also contains no cholesterol, preservatives or trans fats. This dip ends up being high in protein because of the SunButter and Greek yogurt, which is always a plus in my book. If you have a dairy allergy, feel free to substitute any vanilla flavored non-dairy yogurt if needed.
I like to serve my chocolate dip with an assortment of fresh fruit for dipping, like berries, kiwi, pineapple, bananas and apple slices. It’s amazing that a handful of ingredients and 5 minutes can create such a fun and delicious treat. This dip would even be great for birthday parties or other special occasions, sometimes I serve the fruit on skewers to increase the fun factor.
SunButter is not just for families with food allergies, it’s a nutritious spread for everyone! You can find SunButter in major grocery store chains, specialty stores, schools and other institutions both in the United States and Canada. Be sure to check their website to see where SunButter is sold near you. You can also follow SunButter on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for more information and lots of great recipes.
