Strawberry Dream Fruit Dip (Perfect for Valentine's Day!)


This is by far my most requested recipe! Whenever there is a potluck, party, or any kind of get-together, I'm always asked, "Hey! Can you bring that strawberry fruit dip? It's delicious!"

In fact, this last party I was invited to, I was pretty much told to not bother coming without the dip because they'd be sorely disappointed and hurt if I came without it. Well....maybe that's not exactly what they meant... ;)

But, seriously... IT'S JUST THAT GOOD!!! ^_^

Men, women, and children have all told me how delicious it is! Which makes me so happy because I LOVE sharing healthy food that makes people happy!

Now, you might be thinking, "How can anything be that delicious if it's not coated in chocolate?!" Well, my friend, can I venture to say that not only is this MORE delicious than chocolate, but it's healthier too? Because it is! :D

I've seen two main reactions. After the first bite, little fireworks go off in your brain and intense happiness overwhelms you. You're then either so elated that girlish squeals are intermittently heard between "OH MY WORD!" and "This is the best stuff EVER!!", OR as your eyes begin to light up you spontaneously slam your fist down and loudly declare that this is the best elixir to hit planet earth since ever!

Now I'm sure you would like to enjoy such happiness, so I will share my much demanded recipe below.

Please comment, like, and share to spread the love! <3




  • 15 Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1/2 bag frozen organic strawberries
  • 1/2 - 1 t. cinnamon
  • 1/4 t dried organic beet powder (optional)*
  • 1/2 t vanilla powder (optional)
  • 1/2 -1 c water** 



  1. Put all ingredients except water into your Vitamix or blender. 
  2. Add only 1/2 cup of water and blend on high. If using a Vitamix, use the included plunger to help it blend. If you're using a regular blender, you'll have to stop the blender and scrape the sides with a spoon or rubber spatula. Add more water if mixture is too thick. I like mine the consistency of a thick and creamy sauce or dressing. Enjoy!




*Dried organic beet powder gives it an intense pink color, perfect for Valentine's Day! Don't use too much or it will give it too much of an earthy flavor. Just a pinch intensifies the color without changing the flavor.

**Just fill the Vitamix half way to the top of the dates with water. If your dates are dry, then soak them for a few hours by covering them just enough with water. Then use that date water for the dip which will be sweeter than plain water.

How to Use:

USE WITH CAUTION! If this recipe gets in the wrong hands, then rainbows, butterflies, and unicorns will take over the world! 
Ha! no, I'm just kidding. (In case you couldn't tell.) ;)

You can actually use it liberally! Just take a look at the nutritional profile for the entire recipe! ⬇︎

Full of healthy sugars and fiber, potassium, vitamins, and minerals! That's what we want in good food. We don't want lots of hard-to-digest fats and proteins or lots of water-retaining salt.

Good, clean fruit is where it's at!

Here's some ways I like to use my Strawberry Dream Fruit Dip:
  • Dip sliced apples, strawberries, or bananas
  • Chop apples, berries, and bananas, pour on the dip, and mix for an on-the-go fruit salad
  • Use dip as a topping for banana ice cream made with Yonanas
  • Add some more water, blend, and drink up a delicious smoothie!
