Cream cheese dip has always been one of my favorite ways to enjoy the fruits of the season. It’s like dipping your strawberries into a thick sweet cream! I admit it, I have eaten it with a spoon before… it’s that good!

I decided to try and mix it up a bit by making it with homemade yogurt cream cheese. Now, not only is this dip delicious, but it also packs a probiotic punch! Do not be intimidated about making your own cream cheese, it’s super easy!

3-Ingredient Yogurt Cream Cheese Dip

Not only is this dip delicious, but it also packs a probiotic punch! Do not be intimidated about making your own cream cheese, it's super easy!

Ingredients

  • 4 cups yogurt (You can use one 32 oz. container from the store, make sure it’s organic and grass-fed, but if you make your own, here is a great yogurt starter, and I have 2 recipes in the Notes.)
  • 4 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

To make the cream cheese:

  1. Line the bowl with your flour sack towel and pour yogurt into the center of the towel.
  2. Gather all four corners together and wrap a rubber band around them to hold them together.
  3. Wrap the towel through a handle on one of your kitchen cabinets and secure it with a clothespin (see image below).
  4. Place a bowl under yogurt and towel and allow the whey to drip into the bowl.
  5. Leave undisturbed for 12 hours, or longer (depending on how thick you like your cream cheese).
  6. When it is ready, it will look just like this (see below).
  7. You will now have yogurt cream cheese and whey (to use in fermenting foods, I freeze it into ice cubes to use in single servings for fermentation).

To make the dip:

  1. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, maple syrup, and vanilla.
  2. Whisk together until well combined.
  3. Serve with fresh fruit.
  4. Store in a glass container in the fridge and it will last several days.
