A deliciously sweet, creamy dip made with just 5 ingredients and perfect for dipping cookies, fruit, or whatever your heart desires!
I have always thought it would be fun to have the kind of family that gets together every Sunday for dinner. You know – the kind where all the cousins are close and everyone knows everything that’s going on with everyone else…? It probably has something to do with the fact that I grew up without any of that……we rarely saw our aunts and uncles, barely knew our cousins and even our relationship with grandmas and grandpas wasn’t a close one!
As adults, my siblings and I all made an unspoken pact to stay in the area, live close by, and try to give our kids a good chance of knowing one another. And I think, so far, we’ve done a decent job. But. We all bought houses just far enough away from one another that getting together on a weekly basis has never sounded easy. So, instead, we’ve tried to make a point of getting together to celebrate every birthday and every holiday….even the small ones!
We had planned to get together for Valentine’s Day, and even had everything set, right down to the menu. But then, at the last minute, sick kiddos forced us to cancel. Darn kids! And now it’s been almost 2 months since we’ve all seen each other! Not so great for people who made a point of staying close by for one another…!
I guess that just means we’ll have to get together for St. Patrick’s Day! We probably would have, anyway….but now it’s crucial! And when we do, I know exactly what I’ll be bringing. This creamy Pistachio Pineapple Dip will be perfect – for a snack, or even for dessert! It’s great for dipping any type of fruit, crackers, cookies, pretzels….you name it! And best of all….it’s made with relatively healthy ingredients! Greek yogurt, pineapple, cream cheese, toasted coconut….and, of course, pistachio pudding mix. Because what fun is a get together without a little something naughty. Especially when it comes to St. Patrick’s Day! (We have to keep up with the leprechauns some way!)
