Honey Cream Dip


Country of origin: England This is the sort of frugal living I go for.

With thanks to Traidcraft plc for "Recipes for Change" from whence the original Honey Cream dip was taken, but now sadly out of print. In those days FAIRTRADE bananas did not exist either, and now FAIRTRADE fruit juice can be obtained also.

This recipe contains the following types of ingredient: dairy and honey; plants and fungi.


150 ml
fresh double cream
150 ml
natural yoghurt
45 ml
FAIRTRADE runny honey
50 g
FAIRTRADE chopped cashew nuts
Fresh fruit
FAIRTRADE pineapple


Toast the cashew nuts on a baking tray in an oven at gas mark 3 (165 °C; 325 °F) until golden brown, usually about 30 minutes.

Whip the cream until thick.

Mix the yoghurt with the cream

Stir in 30ml of honey and half the nuts

Divide the honey cream into 4 separate dishes and trickle a little honey over each.

Sprinkle on the nuts.

Serve the bowls of honey cream dip on plates surrounded by an assortment of fresh fruit to be dipped in the cream for eating.

To serve

No decoration is needed, the fruit does it all.


Fruit varies with what is in season (or what you can stand in the supermarket).
