This healthy dairy free coconut fruit dip is made with only 3 ingredients! Serve with fresh organic fruit or coconut flour graham crackers.
We’ve been enjoying an abundance of fruit this summer thanks to our local CSA. My kids have especially enjoyed all the berries!
When we were getting ready to have company for the fourth of July my daughter asked me to make fruit dip to serve with our berries. I remember my mom making fruit dip for me when I was a kid. She made her fruit dip with sour cream, vanilla extract and brown sugar. I remember loving her dip and thought it would be fun to create a healthier dip for my kids to enjoy.
Coconut fruit dip ingredients
Our version of this recipe is very simple made with coconut cream, vanilla extract and raw honey. My kids gobbled up the whole tray of fruit and dip before our company arrived!
A few notes on the ingredients:
- For the vanilla extract, you can absolutely use store-bought, but I prefer to make my own – DIY vanilla extract is a simple recipe that really elevates the overall taste.
- For the coconut cream – there are some really great coconut cream brands out there, so I’m very comfortable buying from the store. For extra points, of course, you can make your own coconut cream at home using coconut milk.

*Coconut cream is the cream on top of cold coconut milk (I use this coconut milk). I suggest refrigerating the coconut milk overnight before making this dip. The coconut water will pour out easily leaving the cream on top.
