Traditional fruit dips are made with ingredients like plain greek yogurt, cream cheese, pudding mix, or cool whip. But this healthy fruit dip is made with coconut cream to keep things light and good for you!

Healthy Fruit Dip – How To Make

First, you’ll need to make sure your coconut cream is cold and solid. To do this, just refrigerate a can of full fat coconut milk over night. Because no two brands are the same, I’d recommend refrigerating 2 cans to ensure you’ll end up with enough coconut cream.

Next, place the coconut cream into a mixing bowl and whip using a hand mixer until it becomes light and fluffy and smooth.

Add in the honey, salt, cinnamon, and vanilla and mix to combine. And that’s it!

Serve cold!

I love dipping strawberries into this healthy fruit dip, but any fruit would be delicious.

    Can you freeze this? I want to make it for a outside Bridal Shower. My thinking is, if I sat it out frozen when we set up then it would be thawed when we eat.

    1. Hi Denise! That’s a great thought but unfortunately this won’t freeze well. The oils in the coconut cream will harden and solidify and get chunky. You *might* be able to mix it back to it’s normal consistency once it’s thawed, but I would for sure try it first before the bridal shower. 🙂

  2. Liliana Meza says:

    Do we use unsweetened coconut cream or regular?

    1. Hi Liliana! I’m a little confused by your question because to me, regular coconut cream is unsweetened. So just make sure there’s no added sugar in it. Or you can use the thick cream off the top of a can of coconut milk – also with no added sugar. Let me know if you have any other questions! 🙂

  3. This recipe is SO easy and everyone loves it. I’ve made it 3 times since finding it last week. My favorite to dip in it is mango.

    1. Oh yum – mango sounds amazing! I’m such a plain Jane and always go for strawberries. I’ll have to try mango next time. Thanks for the review, Holly!
