Tips

  • This is one snack that little chefs will love making and eating.

  • Make the dip a day ahead and refrigerate until ready to use.

  • Unleash your inner chef and experiment with endless fruit combinations.

  • Try using less of the ingredients that are high in added sodium, sugars or saturated fat. Adding salt or sugars directly to your recipe? Remember, a little often goes a long way.
