A deliciously creamy and simple Greek yogurt brownie batter dip – perfect for dipping cookies, graham crackers, or an assortment of fruit in!Growing up, Monday was always my favorite day of the week. Which (don’t hate me) it still is one of my favorites – after Friday of course. I love Monday for several reasons, but I especially loved it growing up because Monday nights was the designated night to spend with our family. We all had to be around the dinner table, we would have some sort of family activity (bike riding to the local park was the BEST), and then there was ALWAYS a dessert.
Okay, you caught me. Desserts on Monday nights are likely why I love Mondays so dang much. My mom rarely made desserts any of the other weekdays and we didn’t have a whole lot of sugar, so Mondays were super special.
One of my favorite all time desserts are BROWNIES. And probably the most frequently made Monday night dessert. So anything that is brownie flavored or has brownie batter in it is a major win in my book. This brownie batter dip is one of those recipes that it brownie flavored (in fact there is actual brownie mix in this recipe)! It has that famous brownie flavor making it the best kind of chocolate dessert.
Plus it’s also got Greek yogurt making it a bit healthier. That and when you dip fruit in it, it could practically be called a breakfast! 😉
- 1/2 cup full fat vanilla flavored Greek yogurt*
- 1 cup brownie mix dry
- 1 cup fresh whipping cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
- Fresh fruit optional
- Graham crackers and/or cookies optional
In a bowl, stir together the Greek yogurt and dry brownie mix until completely combined. Place in the fridge.
In another bowl, pour in the whipping cream and beat with hand mixers.
(Make sure the bowl and the whipping cream are chilled up until you begin beating.)
Add in the vanilla and begin whipping. Increase the speed to medium and then add in the powdered sugar,
Whip until stiff firm peaks form in the whipping cream. The cream will have thickened and if you remove your whisks from the cream, the peaks will hold firmly on their own with slightly soft tips. This is when you know you have whisked it completely.
Very gently, with a spatula, fold in the whipped topping mixture with the yogurt and brownie mixture until combined being careful to not over mix.
Serve immediately with various fruits or foods to dip in such as fresh fruit, graham crackers, or cookies.
*I would not recommend using a plain yogurt flavor as this makes it tart. The full fat is far more creamy and holds up better. I wouldn't recommend a lower fat content yogurt.
