Oldie but Goodie Fruit Dip
By Our Guest Blogger: Shanna Y



~ ~ ~

This is such a great recipe for a nice spring snack. When I first introduced this recipe, I was hosting a tea blending class. Now as a mom it’s a great snack to make with my son. Getting to teach him the importance of healthy food choices and safety with the oils is a wonderful bonding time for us. He is a great kitchen helper. Wouldn’t you love to try this recipe too with your own lil' kitchen helpers! Thanks for allowing me to be a guest blogger. Looking forward to being apart of this great team and sharing my gifts!
