DIY Fruit Flower Arrangements with Healthy Cream Cheese Fruit Dip
A fun and easy idea that combines dessert or a healthy snack with a lovely gift!
- 1 cup Plain Greek yogurt nonfat, 2%, or regular
- pinch sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons honey or to taste (can substitute non calorie sweetener)
- 1 pound mixed cut fruit use the 1 pound bowl of precut fruit and berries
- 8 bamboo skewers
Line a strainer with cheesecloth, and pour the Greek yogurt into the cheesecloth. Wrap it lightly into a ball, and set the strainer over a bowl to catch the liquid that will drain out. Set it in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours.
When you're ready to make the fruit dip, discard any liquid that has drained from the yogurt (or use it in a smoothie - it's whey protein). Place the yogurt in a mixing bowl.
Add a pinch of sea salt, the vanilla, and honey to taste. Stir well to combine.
Thread the fruit onto 8 skewers. If you're arranging these around a potted plant, leave some room at the bottom of each skewer to stick it into the soil.
Serve the fruit skewers with the Cream Cheese Fruit Dip
