A quick and easy sour cream fruit dip made with cottage cheese and sour cream and sweetened with honey. Serve with your favorite fresh fruits. Using honey as a sweetener makes this dip turn out silky smooth.
The flavors of coconut and grated orange peel complement just about any fruit including apples, strawberries, grapes, bananas, mangoes, and kiwi fruit.
You puree the cottage cheese in a blender to get the smooth consistency. You could also use an immersion blender to smooth out the cottage cheese.
This is one of my favorite ways to have fruit. There is just enough honey and confectioners sugar in the recipe to sweeten the fruit, but not be overbearing.
Serve this yummy dip with your favorite fruits that are in season and complement your breakfast or brunch with some color and additional pizazz.
Make this 2-3 hours ahead and refrigerate so the flavors have a chance to develop.
