In the summer, I eat lots of fruit. I think I could live on fruit alone if I could! I’m happy eating it plain, but a couple of my kids need a little something to dip their fruit in in order to be as excited about eating it as I am. I have several very simple fruit dip recipes that can be paired with just about any type of fruit, but I think this one is our favorite!
What kind of cream cheese is used in creamy fruit dip?
All types of cream cheese work well in this fruit dip recipe! I have tried regular cream cheese, the reduced fat cream cheese and even fat free cream cheese and they all turn out wonderfully! Recently I have been using the Greek yogurt variety because it has a little bit more protein which is a nice addition to any snack. The consistency will be slightly different, depending on what type of cream cheese you use.

How do you store fruit dip?
Cream cheese fruit dip dip needs to be stored in the refrigerator and it will stay good for 5-7 days. Generally cream cheese does not freeze very well, so this dip should not be placed in the freezer. This fruit dip recipe is so easy to make that you don’t really need to worry about making it very far in advance. This recipe only takes a few minutes to put together and is ready to serve immediately if needed, although I prefer to serve it chilled.
How do you soften cream cheese?
Cream cheese is easy to soften – you can set it out at room temperature or soften it more quickly in the microwave.
-To soften at room temperature more quickly, just set the cream cheese on a plate and cut into smaller pieces. The cream cheese should reach room temperature in about 15-20 minutes with this method.
-To soften the cream cheese in the microwave, remove the foil packaging and set the cream cheese in a small bowl or on a plate. Microwave for about 10-15 seconds. If the cream cheese is still cold and hard, continue to microwave for about 5 seconds at a time until the cream cheese is soft throughout. Just make sure not to microwave it too long or it will start to melt!
Is fruit dip healthy?
Fruit dip does have some sugar in it, but you can reduce the fat content completely by using fat free cream cheese and skim milk. Although fresh fruit is healthier without the dip, my kids tend to eat more fruit when they have something to dip it into – anything that encourages you to eat more fruit is a good choice in my book!
