Real Food Fuel: Creamy Dreamy Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Fruit Dip

February 6, 2017



So there I was, writing a segment on the heart healthy benefits of fruits and vegetables for Produce Made Simple when I stopped short, went to the kitchen and made this dip.


One of the tips I was writing – “Have a sweet tooth? Enjoy nature’s candy, fruit, for dessert” – got me thinking about all the amazingly delicious desserts featuring fruit.


And then this protein-packed (hello Greek yogurt!) dark chocolate almond butter fruit dip came to mind. And I had to have it.


If you need a little help fitting in more fruit, then you'll want to have this dip too! Since eating lots of fruits (and veggies) is associated with a healthy heart, a good-for-you dip that gets you eating more fruit gets an A+ from this dietitian!


The creamy Greek yogurt, chocolate-y goodness and hint of almond butter creates a super scrumptious flavour combination that will have you wishing that double dipping wasn’t a faux pas. Try it with crisp Ontario apple slices or juicy strawberries or clementines or pineapple or -- all the fruit!




Creamy Chocolate Almond Butter Fruit Dip




1 cup plain Greek yogurt

¼ cup almond butter

3 tbsp cocoa powder

2  to 3 tbsp date syrup, depending on desired sweetness

1 tsp vanilla

pinch sea salt


Optional Garnish: top with chopped almonds and dark chocolate


How to Make:

  1. In a small bowl, stir together all ingredients until well-combined.

  2. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.



Use least 2% Greek yogurt, but 5% is even better. Never fat free – it just won't have the same creamy texture.


To make date syrup, blend 5 to 7 moist, medjool dates with about ¾ cup of water until totally smooth. If you don't want to make date syrup, just use maple syrup or honey.
