Seriously this Avocado Chocolate Fruit Dip is OUT OF THIS WORLD. Made with just four main ingredients: avocados, cocoa powder, maple syrup, and vanilla. Vegan, gluten-free and paleo. WAY better than the artificial store-bought stuff!

I put my hand upon your hip. When I dip you dip we dip.
I could NOT help myself. I was only nine years old when “Da Dip” came out but my friends and I thought we were the coolest kids on the block dancing to that song. I have no idea where our parents were because that song is not exactly appropriate for a bunch of pre-teens… but I think we all turned out fine. No harm done 😀 I still groove to that song when I hear it – don’t act like you don’t get down too.
But what is one thousand times better than dancing “da dip”?
Avocado Chocolate Fruit Dip
My nine year old self would think I was absolutely crazy but now that I’m grown and know what’s good for me (literally) this avocado chocolate fruit dip is my new healthy obsession. I can’t remember the last time I would have bought chocolate fruit dip at the store, you know the kind… But I think it’s safe to say that those ready-to-eat “chocolate” dips likely don’t have a single nutritious ingredient in them. Quite the opposite of this homemade avocado chocolate fruit dip. Avocados are the main ingredient and as I am sure you are aware by now, are one of THE healthiest fats you can incorporate into your diet.
I’m partnering with California Giant Berry Farms on this fruit dip recipe and their berries are the BEST for dipping. They are HUGE, which means you get to scoop as much of that fruit dip onto the berry surface as possible 😀
What you need
- maple syrup
- cocoa powder
- vanilla extract
- pinch of salt
- non-dairy milk
It takes less than five minutes to throw together, which means it is the perfect healthy dessert to serve this summer with all of the fresh fruit!
Speaking of summer… Is anyone else thinking “Okay SLOW DOWN June.” We have so much going on this summer (weddings, trips up north, family vacations, working on our new home) I am going to try my best to be laser-focused on work during the week and do my best to keep weekends (mostly) laptop-free! In Michigan and the Midwest especially, these summer months feel like they go by so fast… And there is so much to do outside we must take advantage of the long summer days we have, you know? So that means more bike rides, more fishing, more cookouts! And more fresh summer produce <3
I’ve said this before but strawberries are my FAVORITE and the best this time of year. And if you’re looking for the best big berries for dipping, California Giant has the biggest berries you ever did see.
I hope you all enjoy this recipe! It even doubles as a healthy chocolate pudding 😀
Let me know if you make it!
- 2 large ripe avocados, pitted and peeled
- 1/2 cup maple syrup*
- 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (cacao may be subbed)
- 1/2 TBS vanilla extract
- pinch of salt
- 2 TBS almondmilk to thin as needed (cashew or coconut may be subbed)
- assorted fruit: strawberries, blueberries, bananas, pears, kiwis, etc. Pick an array of colors!
1. In a small food processor bowl or blender cup add avocado, maple syrup, cocoa powder, vanilla extract and salt. 2. Blend ingredients until smooth – you may need to scrape down the sides of the bowl or cup a couple of times with a spatula. 3. Add milk 1 tablespoon at a time to thin as needed. I only used 1 tablespoon. 4. Transfer Avocado Chocolate Dip to small serving bowl. Serve with assorted fruit plate. Enjoy!
*May need to adjust sweetness to liking. Feel free to add another tablespoon of maple syrup, or add in granulated sugar to taste. Servings based on about 1/4 cup of dip per serving.
