Sour Cream and Brown Sugar Fruit Dip

Over the next few post I will share some of our favorite dips, dressings, and sauces.
I choose this sour cream and brown sugar dip because it is made completely from food storage ingredients and we love it.  The dip tastes like a creamy caramel, and it reminds me a little bit of cheese cake.

The two THRIVE products in this recipe are some of my favorite.  Sour Cream powder and brown sugar.  Now I know you are thinking what is the big deal with THRIVE brown sugar?   Well it is soft, and it stays soft.  It is flavorful with a hint of molasses.  The sour cream powder I love because it is just so easy to use.  I love it for baked goods and have just figured out how to make it into smooth sour cream good for dips, baked potatoes, or tacos.  

The trick to using sour cream powder is to use hot water and then stir until smooth.  I think the sour cream powder tastes better after it has been refrigerated, and I always stick mine in the fridge until it is time to serve it, even if that is only a few minutes.  The sour cream powder really thickens up when it is refrigerated. 

Sour Cream and Brown Sugar Fruit Dip
1 cup THRIVE sour cream powder
1/4 cups plus 2 Tablespoons hot water
2 tablespoons THRIVE brown sugar, plus a little extra for garnish

Mix sour cream, brown sugar and vanilla extract together. Let stand in refrigerator for flavors to combine (at least an hour or two or even better overnight). Garnish with a sprinkling of brown sugar.  Serve with fresh fruit such as apples or strawberries.
