Graham Cracker Crumb Fruit Dip

Sometimes you just need something simple and delicious.  I try and eat a couple servings of fruit a day, but sometimes feel as if I’m getting in a rut.

With sweet vanilla and graham cracker crumb flavors you’ll feel as if you’re eating something luxurious and rich, when in reality you’re enjoying the benefits of a very healthy snack! This dip is light, easy to make, and good enough that your friends will be begging for the recipe- seriously! Enjoy this dip as an appetizer, afternoon snack, or for a healthy dessert! You’ll be so glad you made it. I know my house was!

Ingredients:

  • 8 oz. cool whip
  • 1 small package of Vanilla pudding
  • 2 cups plain yogurt
  • ½ cup graham cracker crumbs
