Make Easy Fruit Dip

This dip makes eating fresh fruit fun. It’s a good way to satisfy a sweet tooth without completely ruining your healthy-eating plans.

This concoction is what I put on my fruit pizza as the “sauce,” but I also like to use it as a dip. The recipe goes especially well with fresh strawberries, but it complements any fruit nicely. It also makes a good dip for animal crackers or marshmallows, if you want to add some variety.

Also, you can create fancy cheesecake-stuffed strawberries by hollowing out fresh berries and spooning this dip into them. Arrange the stuffed berries on a platter and sprinkle with a dusting of powdered sugar if you’d like. If you want the berries to stand upright on the platter, cut off just a bit of the tip of each berry. (Throw the berry tips into your freezer to use later in oatmeal or as pancake toppings.)

Easy Fruit Dip


1 container Cool Whip, thawed

1 8-ounce package cream cheese

Fresh fruit of your choice (I recommend strawberries, grapes, blackberries, and sliced apples)


Place cream cheese on the kitchen counter to soften at room temperature for 10 to 15 minutes. Place cream cheese and Cool Whip in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Blend with a hand or stand mixer until thoroughly mixed.

Allow flavors to meld in the fridge for 20-30 minutes. Serve with fresh fruit. Store leftovers in the fridge.
