Decadent Fruit Dip (Everyday Paleo)

I always love it when the kids get more fruits and veggies throughout the day.  One of the ways to do this is to have it is a dessert or for breakfast and adding a dip helps make eating fruits a little more fun.  These are easy to make and a great dairy-free alternative to yogurt based dips.  The recipe is from www.everydaypaleo.com.  I also have a dull salad knife and fruit cutting knife that I let the kids use to help chop some of the fruits to put in the dip.  When they’re involved in the process, although it can be slower and a little more messy, they enjoy eating it a little more.

 

Decadent Fruit Dip

  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 2 teaspoons coconut flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (Optional)

Put all the ingredients into a food processor or blender, except for the cocoa powder, and blend until smooth. If desired, pour out half of the mixture and add the cocoa powder to the food processor with the other half of the dip.  Process again until the dip is well mixed.  Now you have 1 vanilla dip and 1 chocolate dip!  Makes 1 cup of vanilla and 1 cup of chocolate.  After some time in the refrigerator, the dip will become even thicker.

  1. Hi! I would LOVE to make this fruit dip but am having a hard time finding coconut flour around me – closest place is 1 1/2 hours away! Is there any way coconut flour & milk can be substituted for both almond flour and almond milk or is that a bad idea? I know I can always order coconut flour but would like to make this for a beach picnic this weekend! Please help :).

    • Hi Whitney,
      Thanks for checking out the blog. I think the key ingredient in this recipe is the coconut milk, the canned version. This is what makes the dip creamy, almond milk would not work. I think if you had a way to keep the dip cold while it was being served you could likely get away without using the coconut flour. It’s essentially used as a thickener in this recipe. So, if you can get canned coconut milk, you can make the recipe. Best of luck!

      • Thank you! After calling around everywhere, I found coconut flour at some herbal/vitamin place! Turns out they have a whole grocery section! I will be making this for our beach trip tomorrow, can’t wait to try it! :) Love the looks of all of your recipes, there’s many more for me to try! Thanks for your help!

  2. Yum. I just had coconut milk that I drink. Just a little runny- but the flavor is great!!!! I might just drink it- like a smoothy:)
