This easy, creamy 2-Ingredient Fruit Dip works with any fruit: strawberries, pineapple, cantaloupe, watermelon - you name it!
THE PERFECT COMPLEMENT TO FRESH FRUIT
This recipe has been around for ages. I was reminded of it when we recently went strawberry picking and the recipe came printed in a little coloring book they gave our son. The ingredients are easy to remember which I love. The creamy flavor of this dip doesn't overtake the flavor of the piece of fruit you're dipping, it just adds a sweet creaminess to it.
TIPS TO MAKE THIS APPETIZER:
- The touch of citrus in this recipe is optional. You can change the flavor by the type of citrus you add, lemon, lime, Meyer lemon and orange juice all work really well with this recipe.
- Instead of citrus, you can add different flavor extracts as well. Vanilla extract, maple extract, lemon extract, strawberry extract, etc. all will work with this recipe.

Not a fan of lemon, but I have made this before using Almond extract, vanilla, or Amaretto or Rum - almost any flavoring works. Thanks for reminding me to make, now that it's fruit season!
So simple yet so tasty and I love adding different flavors for change of pace. Thank you.
I had this dip with grapes and it was awesome..I definitely will make this again..the marshmallow fluff goes perfectly with the cream cheese..thanks for sharing!
