It’s midday, it’s after school, or it’s 10 am on a Tuesday…whenever it is, you need a satisfying snack recipe. One that will not only fill you up but is sweet enough to please that sweet tooth, and nutritious enough to keep your brain operating at tip-top shape. And that answer is an apple snack.

Plate of yogurt dip for apple snack.

This recipe is all about taking that apple and making it exciting, interesting, and fun. No more boring apple a day…we’ve got a creamy, sweet, yogurt dipping sauce to really elevate things. If you’re a fan of our mascarpone fruit dip, you’re gonna love this one, too.

Ingredient Spotlight

This recipe uses simple pantry ingredients – which is what a snack should be! There are a few highlights, but please see the full recipe card below for all amounts and instructions.

  • Your favorite snacking apple! You might be wondering what the best kind of apple is to serve with yogurt dip. I’m here to suggest that it’s your favorite kind of apple! I have tested this recipe with various apple types – from green to many reds, to yellow, and they’re all great! My favorite is probably a nice, crisp red apple like Honeycrisp.
  • Greek Yogurt is the base of the dip, however, I’ve also tested it with plain and vanilla yogurts, and both are good substitutes.
  • Pure maple syrup is worth calling out, too. I tested this with honey, too, and the maple syrup was very quickly the obvious winner – with myself and taste testers alike! If you prefer honey, feel free to use it, I just felt it tended to overpower the almond and yogurt.
  • Almond extract is the small but mighty ingredient, giving the yogurt dip a lovely aromatic flavor. I also recommend garnishing with sliced almonds for added texture and it complements the extract. If you don’t have any, feel free to omit it – it’s still delicious just with vanilla.

How to Make a Simple Apple Snack

Slicing up the apple for this apple snack is probably the easiest of all the steps – but trust me, making the yogurt dip is a 5-minute easy-peasy step, too.

Mixing bowl with ingredients.

Truly, all you need to do is add the dip ingredients to a mixing bowl, or small bowl of choice, and stir them together. Taste test and adjust as needed; if you like it a little sweeter, add more maple syrup.

Serving Suggestions for Yogurt Dip

As I mentioned, I like to serve the yogurt dip with sliced almonds on top for added crunch and to enhance the almond flavor.

As with our banana peanut butter snack, you can always add on some chia seeds or flax seeds for additional nutrition and texture, too. Speaking of peanut butter dip…another easy snack option to serve alongside your apple slices, too!
