Simple Honey Cinnamon Yogurt Dip


Easy Yogurt Dip with Honey, Cinnamon and Vanilla


I recently did a seminar with my community at Savannah Bee Company and we talked all about the nutritional benefits of honey. Since my area of expertise falls within digestive health and sports nutrition, I focused on these areas while also including the suggested benefits relating to cardiovascular health. Specifically, honey has demonstrated antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties and it also acts as a prebiotic, meaning it can feed our gut microbes (this is why it is eliminated in the elimination phase of the low FODMAP diet for IBS - it is so fermentable)! However, have no fear my #lowfodmappers - this dip can easily be altered to be suitable for a low FODMAP diet with the use of a lactose-free yogurt (such as Green Valley Organic) and swapping the honey for maple syrup for an equally sweet and delicious taste. We served this dip with fruit for a a gut-healthy, delicious mix of prebiotics and probiotics! This simple dip takes less than 5 minutes to make and is the perfect snack, dessert or food for entertaining.



Ingredients (yields 4 one-quarter cup servings):

1 C plain Greek or Skyr style yogurt (choose fat percentage based on your preference and needs)

2 Tbsp honey (I used Savannah bee Company Tupelo honey, which was delicious!)

1 tsp cinnamon

1/8 tsp vanilla extract


Directions:

1. Place yogurt to a medium sized bowl.

2. Add remaining ingredients (honey, cinnamon, vanilla extract) and mix until ingredients are well combined. Serve with fruit, a cracker or graham cracker (GF if needed) or enjoy on its own!

*This will stay in an airtight container in the fridge for about 3 days.


*Please Note: If you need to avoid all possible sources of cross contact, such as in the case of celiac disease, I recommend using certified gluten free ingredients
