This sweet and creamy vegan date yogurt dip is a perfect complement to your fresh fruit. It has no refined sugar so eat away! Perfect for parties or snacking.
When I was growing up, one of my favorite treats was this sour cream and brown sugar dip my mom use to make for us to dip our strawberries in. When this dip came out of hiding, I knew summer was just around the corner.
No school, pool time, lazy days and playing outside all day until it was dark…good times! There really is nothing like being a kid. Through this blog I was able to reconnect with some of my childhood friends, and one in particular has been such a great support in this journey.
Even though she is not vegan, I have bounced ideas off of her and she has tried so much of what I offer, providing great feedback. From my Cashew Walnut Cream Sauce to my Date Paste, she looks at new ideas with enthusiasm and it makes me realize that what I am doing is actually meaning something to others.
Coincidentally, this friend also grew up loving the same amazing fruit dip and asked me about making it using dates to replace the sugar. What a fabulous idea!
Making Memories..Yogurt Dip Memories
I decided to take it one step further for the blog and make this treat a vegan one for all my readers to enjoy! It was important for me to recreate this memory for my boys, so they too can begin to form their own associations and one day be able to think fondly of their time with me.
It is so easy to make, and with a few changes I was able to make it vegan and free of refined sugar. The local organic strawberries here have been amazing lately, so we will be enjoying this for many weeks to come!

- Put all ingredients in a food processor, blender, or high speed blender and puree until smooth.
- If using a high speed blender, like a Vitamix, this will only take a few minutes. Traditional food processors or blenders will take longer, but eventually it will come out nice and smooth. If you want a thinner dip, then you can always add more milk.
- You can use regular yogurt if you aren’t concerned about it being totally vegan.
- You can also use a few more dates instead of the coconut sugar or more sugar instead of dates, I liked the taste of just a touch of the coconut sugar in conjunction with the dates.
