Fluffy Fruit Dip

Written By: Chris - Oct• 10•12

I remember Bill’s family serving “fruit dip” at many of the bridal and baby showers when we were younger.  It was always a bright pink color and recall that it was made by mixing a few simple ingredients including dry jello mix.  I recall that it had a bright, sweet and sort of a tangy flavor and that it we had it along many kinds of fruit.

Although fruit is delicious and healthy for us all on it’s own, I like to have a splurge of the richness of a fruit dip now and again and this recipe is my version.  What’s different is that I use low fat cream cheese and add brown sugar rather than the jello mix.  I also add a hint of vanilla, which makes this taste like a soft Carmel dip.  It goes perfect on fresh strawberries, watermelon, pineapple and grapes.  I’m sure it would also be delicious on melon of any type!

 

Ingredients:

4 ounces (1/3 less fat) Cream Cheese
4-6 ounces Marshmallow Creme
1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla

Allow cream cheese to come to room temperature.  Using an electric mixer, combine cream cheese with marshmallow creme, brown sugar and vanilla.  Whip until blended thoroughly.

Serve along side or drizzled over your favorite fruit!

Enjoy!

Cheers!
