How to Make Fruit Dip

This Cream Cheese Dip for fruit only contains 5 ingredients and is so easy to make! First, gather these ingredients:

  1. cream cheese
  2. marshmallow fluff
  3. Cool Whip or Whipped Cream (about 3 cups)
  4. powdered sugar
  5. vanilla

COMBINE. In a medium bowl, beat powdered sugar, cream cheese, and vanilla together with a hand mixer on low speed, until well mixed.

Fold in whipped topping and Marshmallow Fluff.

CHILL + SERVE! Chill until ready to serve. Serve with fruit or Pound Cake for dipping.

Serving Tips

Serving suggestions. You really can’t go wrong serving every fresh fruit with this Cream Cheese Dip recipe. Our favorites include strawberries, blackberries, pineapples, grapes, apples, raspberries, cherries, peaches, and bananas.

Additional dippables. Marshmallow Cream Cheese Dip works great for other treats too like vanilla wafers, Cinnamon Chips, graham crackers, or Oreos. Get creative!

Lighten it up. Use “light” versions of the cream cheese and cool whip. The dip will still turn out just as creamy and delicious. I typically use light cool whip.

Prevent fruit from turning brown. Here are a few tricks to keep that fruit looking fresh while it’s sitting on a platter at your party.

  • Dip 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.

Storing info

STORE. We recommend storing this Fruit Dip Recipe in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 5-6 days. Unfortunately, it never lasts that long at our house and we have a feeling it will be the same at yours. 😉

Whether hosting a baby shower, a BBQ or even just having a date night in – I promise this F Dip will not disappoint!

Recipe FAQ

Can I make this fruit dip healthier?

You can use reduced fat cream cheese and “light” cool whip to cut down on the calories in this fruit dip. In fact, I usually use the light cool whip.

Why is my fruit dip lumpy?

Make sure your cream cheese is fully softened before mixing all the ingredients together. If it’s not fully softened, it can cause lumps in the dip.

What should I serve with fruit dip?

I prefer fruits that don’t brown (like apples and bananas do). My top favorites to serve with fruit dip are strawberries, blackberries, grapes, pineapple, and cantaloupe.

    1. 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.
