The Halloween festivities began last weekend for us with a couple’s party we always look forward to. I love the holiday season and the parties. It’s such a great time to get together and enjoy company with friends! One thing that’s always a struggle though, is the food table. There are so many delicious treats, and my insulin levels hate me after my inability to resist!
I’ve found one great solution, if I bring something healthy I know I can snack on, I’ll spend my night with that instead of just the treats. A few months ago I was trying a cleanse with only clean eats, and I realized I could have Greek yogurt, which had the potential for a great dip! Using it as a base, I played around with a few ingredients I knew I could have during my cleanse, and I came up with one of my favorite healthy snacks that feels like a treat! Best of all, it only takes four ingredients to make!
Here’s what you need:
Clean-Eating Fruit Dip:
1 17 ounce container of plain greek yogurt
2 heaping TBSP of all-natural Almond Butter or Peanut Butter
We’re talking pure protein here with the nut butter and Greek yogurt, and the calorie-free Pure Via is a natural, Non-GMO, sweeter made from the stevia plant.
It takes about 3 steps to make this easy delicious dip too.
1. Take out about 2 heaving TBSP of yogurt so you have room to stir.
2. Add the nut butter, Pure Via, and cinnamon.
3. Stir it all up, and once it’s almost fully mixed add the 2 TBSP of yogurt you took out back in.
Before you know it you have a delicious dip that’s easy to take with you to your next holiday party.
One other note, the Pure Via is actually affordable at Walmart (about $2), but they have a coupon right now to save $.55 on one Pure Via® Non-GMO, All Natural, Zero Calorie 40 Ct. Packets. Jewel has also teamed up with them and you can get a free download and cookbook too!
But seriously, let’s get back to the food!
After you make the dip, all you need to do is cut up fruit of your choice. Apples work extra well this time of year since they’re in season, and you can brush lemon juice on top to slow down the browning. We also love adding grapes, bananas, oranges, or pears to the plate.
It only takes a few minutes, and you’re good-to-go with an excellent healthy party treat!
My favorite part is how fast this goes! Even with all the treats, we never take home any extra and it’s always the first item at the table to vanish.

Simple, easy and delicious. You can never go wrong with this. I normally don't eat dips but I want to give this a try.
I love the idea of bringing healthy snacks you like to a party so you have something healthy to eat! Great idea!
