On a romantic picnic, bringing along fruit, which is in season at the farmers market, is both literally and figuratively a sweet option. This recipe is also a healthier option for dessert as it uses greek yogurt, sweetened with a bit of honey and coconut instead of pudding or another more sugary option. Pack the fruit in one container, and the dip in another, and you are ready for a sweet summer dessert on your romantic picnic!
