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.
