Fruit Dip

For years I have been perplexed as to why people would dip their fruit in anything, especially a yogurt dip.  The fruit in and of itself is perfectly and deliciously sweet, why do anything to take away from its natural flavor?

My opinion quickly changed when I was running my mouth at a party and to stop myself from divulging every last embarrassing thing I had ever done I quickly shoved some fruit in my mouth.

By some miracle of divine providence my apple crisp grazed the dip bowl in the center of the lovely arrangement and in my mouth it went.


It was heaven on my Granny Smith!

I loved it, finally I knew what everyone had been doing all this time!  Thankfully I stopped myself before I took that same apple crisp, licked it clean and dipped it back in there for was a close call but I did in fact refrain!

I quickly found the bearer of this heavenly treat and asked for the ingredients....with a pen and paper I sat eagerly ready to write at a moments notice.

As my friend, Scottie, looked at me with a puzzled expression over her drink glass she told me, "it's just sour cream and brown sugar".


How could it be that simple?  Could something so tasty be so easy?  I was certain it was going to be a pinch of this and a dab of that and if I was really lucky I would get gramma's secret ingredient.

To my surprise she chuckled and said, "Yeah, I even use the low fat sour cream".

This was crazy talk.  Surely she was pulling my chain!  There was no way two ingredients, one of which was "low fat", could be this delicious.

I thought I would give it a try just so I could prove she was lying to me. 

Well friends, she was telling the God's honest truth.

The two ingredients will be the best two ingredients you throw together for your next gathering!

Stay with me here....I am gonna walk you through this one.

Fruit Dip
In a bowl, add as much sour cream as you want dip.  Add about a 1/2 cup of brown sugar.  Stir together and taste.  Add more brown sugar if needed.
Serve with fresh fruit.
I promise you I am not lying!  Give it a try to prove I might be and I swear you too will be hooked!
Pin It!
