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 it for sentimental reasons, I recommend it because it is one of the best fruit dip recipes out there.
What is the best dip for fruit?
What I love is that it’s so simple to make. Better still, it’s likely you already have most of the ingredients in your pantry or refrigerator. 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.
I served this dip many time times when I ran my bed and breakfast. It was a special treat that I could pair with a plate of fruit in the morning. You might not be surprised to hear that it was always a crowd pleaser!
