Weekend Food Prep–Cinnamon Yogurt Dip for Fruit

A super-quick offering for you today which makes a great addition to breakfast, an afternoon snack, or something protein-filled to contribute to brunch with friends. I enjoy sweets and I often want something sweet in the afternoon, but I also want to make sure I’m getting in my protein. Greek yogurt has become a staple for me in that situation. This yogurt dip is delicious without any added sweetener, although you can certainly add some if it’s too sour for your tastes. The cinnamon and vanilla give it a hint of sweetness, and when combined with fruit or some homemade granola, I like just how it is.

Cinnamon Greek Yogurt Fruit Dip

one. Stir together:
2 cups plain Greek yogurt (I like Fage 0% since it has a very rich and creamy texture)
1/2 tsp cinnamon (honestly, I don’t measure it–a generous sprinkling?)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (the fake kind is fine for this use)

two. Optional: sweeten to taste with 2-3 tsp. of honey or other sweetener of your choice.

three. Serve with cut up fruit. If the pieces are small (like grapes), and this is for company, you can put them on little skewers to make it easier to eat, or just make a bowl of fruit salad and put a dollop on top. Usually, I just scoop it up with apple slices.
