I’ll Take Some Caramel Cheesecake with My Apples

20140202-094904.jpg

I love bringing fruit to BBQs. It’s fresh and sweet without all the guilt of a traditional dessert. But I always ponder on what combo I could bring. A mixed fruit tray may leave me with all the reject fruits after the party. Nuts or marshmallows mixed in may not please any picky eaters. Arranging the fruit on skewers may cause a bit of a sword fight amongst the youngsters.
So maybe a fruit dip would work. I remember making my boys a fresh and healthy fruit dip a couple years back that they raved about. So I thought I’d do that again. And this one takes only 5 minutes to throw together and take to a party. Convenient for last minute potlucks!

 

Gobble ‘Em Up Lowfat Caramel Cheesecake Dip for Apple and Fruit

1 8oz package Neufchâtel cream cheese
1 cup Nonfat Plain Greek Yogurt
1/4 cup unpacked brown sugar
3 Tb caramel sauce
1 tsp cinnamon
6 apples sliced into wedges and any other firm fruits, ie bananas, pears, melon

Serves 20, about 2 Tb per serving. Prep 5 min.

Place all ingredients in a large bowl and blend with hand mixer or stand mixer until smooth and creamy.

Place dip in an airtight container for travel. Place apples in a ziplock storage bag and squeeze juice of half a lemon over slices to keep from browning. Sprinkle with cinnamon and seal until serving.
Your fruit tray is ready to serve upon arrival at your party. Or as a weekday snack at work. I think I’m going to add this to the boys’ lunchboxes!
This was gobbled up very quickly at today’s BBQ. The kids killed it-nutrition and all. It’s full of Vitamin C and Iron in the fruit and Calcium and Protein in the dip. I hope you enjoy this one as much the whole family did.
