Dietitian's Tip: 

Fresh fruit, like sweet fresh strawberries, are a perfect DASH dessert. Pairing strawberries with these three dips makes for a fun, interactive, and healthful alternative to chocolate fondue.

Ingredients: 

4 ½ cups fresh strawberries

STRAWBERRY CREAM DIP
1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream
1/4 cup strawberries (no sugar added)
Fruit spread or strawberry jam

CHOCOLATE FUDGE DIP
6 tablespoons nonfat yogurt
6 tablespoons prepared chocolate fudge sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed

HONEY ALMOND DIP
2/3 cup nonfat yogurt
3 tablespoons toasted, slivered almonds, finely chopped
2 1/2 tablespoons honey

Preparation: 

Wash the strawberries and pat dry with paper towels. Divide strawberries into 6 serving dishes and set aside.

For each dip, whisk ingredients in separate containers until smooth.

Serve dips in small bowls to accompany strawberries.
