Easy Fruit Dip
With the outdoor entertaining season upon us, I thought we could use a yummy and easy fruit dip recipe.
For as long as I can remember, this is the fruit dip that my mom has made. For me, it’s a requirement for summer barbecues at home. (Oh, and if you need a vegetable dip, this Really Good Veggie Dip is a winner! It’s my go-to recipe!)
Although I’m probably partial to this dip for sentimental reasons, I also recommend it because it is one of the best fruit dip recipes out there.
What is the best dip for fruit?
This one right here! 😉 What I love is that it’s so simple to make. Better still, you likely already have most of the ingredients in your pantry or refrigerator, or they’re just an online order away. All you need is cream cheese, marshmallow fluff, yogurt, and a splash of maraschino cherry juice!
The cream cheese gives it tang, the marshmallow makes it fluffy, and the yogurt keeps it smooth.
I also like the pale pink color, which you might guess is from the maraschino cherry juice. If you don’t have any on hand or don’t want to use it, no worries! You can substitute a splash of grenadine, a bit of strawberry jelly, or even a little red food coloring.

Is marshmallow fluff the same as marshmallow cream?
