Apricot Fruit Dip

*Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.

I don't know about you, but this time of year my fridge is overflowing with fresh fruits. There is nothing better than delicious summertime foods! Strawberries, cherries, blackberries, watermelon. It's all good! My family doesn't need any encouragement to reach for those fruits for snacking, but sometimes we like to kick it up a notch. I actually have a little chocolate fondu tower that I'll let the girls use with their fruits every now and again, but only for a once in a while treat as we do try to keep snacking on the healthy side around here. So, I was pretty intrigued when I found a recipe for Apricot Fruit Dip on Golden Blossom Honey that I thought would be a tasty and healthy way to add a little more flare to our fruits!

It's a light, tangy dip that is perfect for summer entertaining. The coconut gives it a tropical flare that is so tasty, and pairs well with a multitude of fruits.

1/2 cup apricot preserves
2 tablespoons GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY

  4. I do love me apricots... neighbours' tree hangs into our yard so I always steal a handful each day for my daily juice :) in which I mash a handful of apricots without skin, a banana, an orange, some water and honey. And before that I did it with raspberries but I ate everything from the bush :)

    1. I love them too, but then... my mouth gets all itchy and I know I shouldn't have eaten them. Yep, that's what we call repetitive behavior. So I guess I'd better stick to strawberries. I love it when a fridge is overflowing with fresh fruits...

    2. Itchy usually means allergies, Blue... that happens to me and kiwi sometimes :)

    3. I wish my neighbor had an apricot tree I could swipe from. Lucky you! We do swipe their mulberries though ;)

      Poor Blue! That sucks you have allergic reactions to apricots. I would be so, well, blue about that ;)
