Fruit Dips-Kid Approved

Life has been pretty busy here lately and I didn't have time to do a proper Mommy Moment Mondays post. But, I still wanted to share with you some great recipes that we are fond of these days.

If you've been following my blog then you know that my son and I have battled health issues caused by gluten intolerance over the past year and have recently changed to a low GI/ gluten free diet. It's been 2 weeks now having given up gluten and we have had a few mishaps but overall we feel fantastic!

I have found meal times difficult because I need to change the way we eat, the ingredients we buy and make most things from scratch. This is time consuming and frustrating because I don't like cooking. But the hardest time of the day is snack times. I can't just grab something from the shops that fits our budget and meets our gluten free needs. I spend a lot of time baking things from scratch and hoping they will be edible (so far we've had a lot of flops). So we eat fruit as a snack a lot too. But lets face it-eating fruit everyday can be a bit boring right? Well I've been spicing it up with some awesome fruit dips and today I am going to share with you my favorite kid approved dips!

Healthy Kid Approved Fruit Dips

Apple Sauce Dip
-1/4 cup applesauce
-1/4 cup cream cheese
-cinnamon to taste

Mix ingredients together until smooth. Serve chilled with any fruit you desire or eat with cinnamon chips.

Strawberry Dip
-1/4 cup strawberries
-1 cup vanilla yoghurt
-1/4 cup cream cheese

Combine in food processor until smooth. Serve chilled with fruit.

Nut Ricotta Cream Dip
-2 cups ricotta
-1/4 cup almond or hazelnut meal
-2 tablespoons of honey
-cinnamon to taste

Mix all ingredients together and serve chilled over fruit salad.

Peanut Butter Dip
-1/4 cup vanilla yoghurt
-4 tablespoons of peanut butter
-1 tablespoon of honey

Combine all ingredients and mix until smooth. Serve chilled with sliced apples.

Seriously, these are sooo incredibly yummy that even the pickiest eater in the house (my man) likes them too!  Do you have some favorite recipes or snacks that your family loves? Come link them up to my Favorite Family Recipes Linky Party. They don't need to be gluten free but any g-free linky love is always appreciated.

Now what the heck are you waiting for? Head to the kitchen and whip up some yummy dips pronto.
