Creamy Fruit Dip

Click to Print This Recipe

  • 1 package flavored gelatin mix (the four serving size)
  • 1 cup tap water
  • 3 cups yogurt (homemade is fine)
  • 1/3 cup sugar (optional)
  • up to 1 cup chopped fruit (optional)

Oh is this stuff good! First heat up the tap water. When it boils, remove it from the heat. Add the gelatin to it and stir it with a fork for several minutes, to completely dissolve the gelatin. The gelatin will only dissolve if you stir it long enough. When the gelatin is dissolved, stir in the yogurt. If you like it very sweet you can stir in the extra sugar too. I don't like to add the sugar, but the kids like it pretty well with the extra sugar. If you like you can also stir in some chopped fruit. I like to add leftover canned fruit, cut into small bits, or sometimes bananas or frozen strawberries. The fruit should be cut up small, or it is difficult to chew. When everything is well stirred up, pour the yogurt into individual cups or small resealable containers. Place them n the fridge to chill. These are great in the lunch box, and also as a healthy snack. If you have homemade yogurt which didn't set up as well as you like, it can be used to good advantage in this recipe. Red flavors of gelatin seem to be the most popular at my house, but I think lemon and peach are also pretty good. Green is interesting, and appeals to kids who like to pretend they are eating slime.
