If you’re looking for a quick and easy dip for summer or anytime, this recipe is definitely for you. Seriously, it doesn’t get much easier than this cool, creamy tropical fruit dip!
In fact, after I tried this recipe for the first time, my kids took over after that, and they even made the video!
Only 3 Ingredients
This easy fruit dip is another vintage recipe from my grandma’s stash. Best of all, you only need three very simple ingredients!
You might already have everything at home.
Here’s what you need to make it:
- Sour cream
- Apricot preserves
- Shredded coconut
If it were up to the kiddos, they’d probably reach for the crackers and chips first, so I like to keep lots of fresh fruits and veggies on hand, cut up and ready to go. Now, fruits and veggies are fine by themselves, and that’s how we usually eat them. But honestly, dips make them taste even better — right?
I told you how easy this dip is to make, but I have to say that I was just slightly skeptical about how it would taste. It’s made with sour cream, apricot preserves and shredded coconut, and that’s it. I was worried that the sour cream flavor would be too strong, but that’s definitely not the case
The dip gets just the right amount of sweetness from the preserves and the coconut, and the sour cream balances it all out. In short, it’s perfect!
Best Fruits for the Dip
You can serve the dip with any fresh fruit, but we thought that tropical fruits just tasted better. My kids love strawberries, and they are perfect for dipping, but sliced pineapple and bananas really do taste even better!
