Strawberry Dip from Greek Yogurt

 I’m not known to make small quantities of anything, unless I am just trying to use up the last scraggily bits of something.  When I made the strawberry coulis, I had every intention of using in multiple ways to show how versatile that simple sauce really is.
I love dips.  Sweet dips, savory dips. Dips in a really fast roller coaster ride.  You name it, except dips in my checking and savings accounts, those I don’t like.In attempt to use lower fat ingredients, I thought Greek yogurt would be a fantastic substitute for any dip, sweet or savory.  Plus I always have it as a pantry staple.
The day I made this dip, (confession: it was before I left on my vacation) I had two of Elizabeth’s best friends over for a play date.  They were going to be my guinea pigs.  Two bananas, five kiwis, and an entire sleeve of Girl Scout Trefoils later, the bowl was clean.  Success.
While the children enjoyed this with fruit, I just enjoyed it with a spoon. Probably not the most grown up way to enjoy a dish, but I truly just dug right in with my spoon right in the bowl. If your not a fan of greek yogurt, plain regular yogurt will work, but it will be a bit thinner.

    Greek yogurt as a dip? What a wonderful idea. I love dipping fresh fruits in a yogurt dip. I bet the Kiwi tastes heavenly!!

    I love just about anything with Greek yogurt, and this simple and delicious dip looks to be no different. :o) And I love that you’re dipping Girl Scout cookies in there–the shortbread are actually my favorite of all of them!
