Fruit Dip Recipe

Best Cream Cheese Fruit Dip

Who doesn’t love a good Fruit Dip recipe? Fruit is already so tasty as it is, but let me tell you, dipping it in something sweet and sugar-y really enhances the flavor! That’s what I love about this Cream Cheese Fruit Dip recipe! Another thing that I absolutely love is that it only takes a handful of ingredients, and comes together in  minutes! With how simple it is to make, it’s perfect for parties, BBQ’s, showers, and get togethers!

I actually made this for a small craft night at my home a few weeks back, and the second everyone left the hubby and I put on a show and sat and dipped strawberries in the little that was left. I’ll admit we cleaned the whole bowl pretty quickly. The hubby agreed it was his new preferred “treat.” I think when he realized the dip had cream cheese, it became an automatic favorite in his book. 🙂

Marshmallow Fruit Dip

Like I mentioned before, this recipe only contains 5 ingredients:

  1. Cream cheese
  2. Marshmallow Fluff
  3. Cool Whip
  4. Sugar
  5. Vanilla

I know the initial thought of marshmallow and fruit paired together sounds kind of strange, but I can assure you, the marshmallow fluff is key to this dip. The marshmallow fluff and the cool whip give the dip a really light texture, while the cream cheese gives it an irresistible creamy consistency. You can definitely opt to use “light” versions of the cream cheese and cool whip, and the dip will still turn out just as creamy and delicious. I typically use light cool whip.

      Thank you so much, Laura! Poor Lorin liked all the food at first but he doesn’t have KC to play racquetball with to burn off all those extra calories! 😉

    Thanks for posting this. It brought back some great memories.

    My Mama used to make a similar, but easier recipe for fruit dip when I was growing up. She just mixed 8 oz cream cheese with a jar of marshmallow creme and 1 tsp vanilla butter & nut flavoring. She always served it dolloped on canned pears with a maraschino cherry on top. We always felt like it was such a fancy dessert back then.

      Lil' Luna

      Oooh, nut flavoring would be great in this recipe. Thanks for the tip, and thank you for stopping by. Have a great day. 🙂


    I have made this dip for years except my recipe doesn’t include the sugar. It is still sweet,creamy and fluffy. A family fave for sure!

      Lil' Luna

      I’m sure it’s just without the sugar as well. It’s definitely a new family favorite.


    You had me at cheesecake!! Delicious!! Pinned it! Thanks for the recipe 🙂

      Lil' Luna

      You will LOVE it Crystal – it is seriously SO good!


        Can you freeze this dip? also what is size of small tub? my store sells1Litre or 2 litre so that is 4cups or 8cups, but I think there is one smaller yet?

          Lil' Luna

          The tub is 7 ounces. Unfortunately, I have never tried freezing it before. :/


    Mmmmmm….this sounds like a great dip for a party!

      That’s exactly what I made it for, and it was SO good. Hope you like it too.

    melissa heher

    When you say “bar of cream cheese” how much is that??

      Lil' Luna

      It is 8 oz. It is sold in a bar form at the store. Hope that helps.

        melissa heher

        Perfect…can’t wait to try it.

          Lil' Luna

          I think you’ll love it! Let me know how it tastes. 🙂

    Rachel Smith

    Hello, I have a question. You say 1 container marshmallow fluff and 1 tub cool whip. Well what size container and tub? They both come in many different size ounces, so I’m not sure what size to get for each!

      Lil' Luna

      I edited the recipe… both are the small containers. 🙂

        Rachel Smith

        Thank you! I made this on Thanksgiving and it tastes amazing! I will definitely be making this again.

    The Cocktail Lady

    Your Cheesecake Fruit Dip sounds simple and delicious! Thanks for the recipe!! Cheers =)

      Lil' Luna

      Let me know if you ever try it out – it’s a favorite for sure. 🙂


    I made this and it was too sticky, imo. I hope I did not add too much fluff. I bought the smallest container. How many ounces of fluff should I have used.

      Lil' Luna

      I use the 7 ounce jar. We’ve made it several times and it never seemed sticky. Curious, if you used the generic brand and wondering if that made a difference…

    Vickie Gooch

    Can I make this up tonight for tomorrow’s party?

      Lil' Luna

      You should be able to if you keep it refrigerated, and then I’d give it a good mix before serving. 😉


    Howdy! Would you mind if I share your blo with mmy twitter
    group? There’s a lot of people that I think would really appreciate your content.

    Please lett me know. Cheers

    This sounded so good… I just made it and for it, it was too much sugar. I was curious to see if you had added powdered sugar or granulated…since you didn’t state powdered, I used granulated. The sugar is crunchy in the mixture. I think I will try it again with no sugar at all or just a little powdered.

      Lil' Luna

      It was just granulated sugar. I’ve never had a problem with it being crunchy. You can add less sugar, if you want to try that and just mix real well. Hope it turns out better next time. 🙂


    If I’m allergic to marshmallows what is a substitute for that?

      Lil' Luna

      I wish I knew!!! Couldn’t really find anything online…anyone know??? I’d love to know!


        You could use a sticky gelatin with a different flavouring just use less water. There might be artificial marshmallow flavourings you could add. Or use a different sweet flavouring like strawberries which goes great with cream cheese.


    My fiancé currently has been making this amazing marshmallow whip-cream cheese fruit dip which is out of this world! That amazing deliciousness definitely is bribe worthy! I will do all the dirty household chores just to get a taste of that yummy fruit dip!
    He just uses the marshmallow whip and cream cheese (2&2)
    I bet it would be even tastier with all the added sugar!

    I love to pair it with Honeydew,Green Apples, Strawberries, and Raspberries!

    Love all your recipes!
