The ingredients for making cream cheese fruit dip on a kitchen counter.


  • 1 – 8 ounce package cream cheese – for a smooth creamy texture be sure that the cream cheese is at room temperature
  • 1 – 7 ounce jar marshmallow fluff – or use marshmallow creme which has a similar flavor and texture
  • 1 – 8 ounce tub Cool Whip – or homemade Whipped Cream (about 3 cups)
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar – adds sweetness, texture, and stability to the dip.
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – adds a subtle layer of flavor. You can also use almond extract or lemon extract for different tastes.

How to Make Fruit Dip

  1. COMBINE. In a large bowl, use a hand-held electric mixer or a stand mixer to beat 1½ cups powdered sugar, 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, and 1 teaspoon vanilla on low speed, until well mixed.
    • Fold in 1 (8-ounce) tub whipped topping and 1 (7-ounce) marshmallow fluff.
  2. CHILL + SERVE! Chill until ready to serve.

PRO TIP: Prevent Browning Fruit

Use a commercial product such as Fruit-Fresh. You can also brush lemon juice or ginger ale over the cut fruit or soak the fruit in 7UP or Sprite for 1 hour.

    Been making this fruit dip for years. Work to family get togethers. Everyone loves this dip from little ones to grandparents. It is “finger licking good”.

    I just made this for the first time. I only made half bc after reading some of the reviews that said it was too sweet-I just wasn’t sure.
    Now I wish I’d have doubled it & I cud eat the extra with a spoon.
    I think it is GREAT & will be making it again.

    this tastes great. can it ne frozen?

    1. Lil'Luna Team says:

      I wouldn’t recommend freezing. The texture of those dairy products thawed might be a little strange. The dip will last 5-6 days in an air-tight container in the fridge.

    2. Elizabeth A Couch says:

      Hi I freeze it and it doesn’t hurt it
