Quick & EASY 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 a sweet and delicious dip makes it even better. That’s why we are sharing today’s recipe for our family-favorite Fruit Dip!

This cream cheese fruit dip is not only the best, but it takes just a handful of ingredients and comes together in just a few minutes too. With how simple it is to make, it’s perfect for parties, BBQ’s, showers, and get togethers! And we’re talking done in just 3-5 minutes or so – it’s that easy.

Making Marshmallow Fruit Dip

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

  1. Cream cheese
  2. Marshmallow Fluff
  3. Cool Whip or whipped cream
  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 whipped cream 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.

To make the recipe, you’ll just combine all the ingredients using a hand mixer and then folding in the whipped cream. We suggest making sure the cream cheese is softened to help eliminate some of the clumps when mixing.

tips for serving

Which Fruits to serve with cream cheese fruit dip? You really can’t go wrong serving every fruit with this dip recipe. Our favorites include:

  • strawberries
  • blackberries
  • pineapples
  • grapes
  • apples

It’s not just for fruit though! The dip works great for other treats too. Try dipping Nilla wafers, cinnamon chips, graham crackers, or Oreos. Get creative!

How can I keep my fruit from turning brown? You’re in luck! Here are a few little tricks to keep that fruit looking fresh while it’s sitting on a platter at your party.

  • Dip your cut fruit in lemon juice. Simply squeeze a lemon over the cut fruit and gently toss.  
  • Quickly dip the fruit in ginger ale.
  • Use a commercial product such as Fruit-Fresh.
  • Use a sharp paring knife. The sharper the blade the less “damage” the fruit takes.

How long does Cream Cheese fruit dip last in the fridge? How to store?

We recommend storing this fruit dip in an air-tight container in the fridge. When stored properly, this dip should last up to 5-6 days in the fridge. Unfortunately, it never lasts that long at our house and we have a feeling it will be the same at yours. 😉

  1. Wow, this looks ahhmazing! Lorin is one lucky guy to be able to taste all of these fun things you make! I’m loving all of the recipes you’re posting, Kristyn. Thanks! And, btw, your pictures are incredible. Seriously, whenever I take a picture of food it looks like crap. You’re skilled!

    1. 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! 😉

  2. 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.

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

  3. 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!

      1. 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?

  4. 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!

  5. 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.

    1. 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…

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

  6. 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

      1. 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.

  7. 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!

  8. If you are diabetic, I think 1/4c. of sugar and no marshmallow fluff, would cut down on the carbs and sugars. making it healthier.

    I LOVE this dip! Make it all the time! I am going to make it now and use it As the filling for a strawberry poke cake and I believe it’s going to be delicious! May use a little bit of milk to thin it out a little bit to spread OVER the holes!

  13. 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. 🙂
