While I usually enjoy fruit by itself, once in a while, I want to elevate it. Dipping it in Greek yogurt often does the trick. It’s thick and creamy and doesn’t taste sour like regular yogurt.

This time, I took a few steps further and created a yogurt dip. Along with the thick, creamy Greek yogurt, you get hints of vanilla, orange, and sweet maple syrup. For some extra fiber, heart-healthy fats, and nutty goodness, I threw in some sliced almonds.

This recipe uses strawberries, grapes, and mandarin oranges to serve with the dip, but feel free to change it up with whatever you like or have around the house. If you have leftovers, convert it into a parfait the next day!
