Key Lime Fruit Dip

Sarah, Christy’s 8 year old daughter, loves to help out in the kitchen so over the holidays we had her pick out an easy recipe to make that everyone from the youngest to the oldest family member would enjoy. Sarah chose this easy to assemble lime flavored dip made with reduced fat cream cheese that was served with fruit skewers. This is a recipe that kids of many ages could make either on their own or with help from Mom, and who doesn’t love fresh fruit kabobs?

Why Healthy

  • Fresh fruit is always a nutritionally sound choice for snacking and the variety of fruits used (strawberries, kiwi, pineapple, and grapes) include both antioxidant as well as a number of healthy vitamins.
  • Choosing light versions of both the cream cheese and yogurt help to keep the dip lower in fat and calories.
