How to Make Marshmallow Fruit Dip
Like I mentioned before, this recipe only contains 5 ingredients:
- Cream cheese
- Marshmallow Fluff
- Cool Whip or whipped cream
- Powdered Sugar
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.

- 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.
