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.

How long is homemade fruit dip good for?

If you store this in an airtight container in the refrigerator, it will stay fresh for up to seven days.

What fruit is good for dipping?

Any type of fruit that you like to eat will taste delicious in this homemade fruit dip! My favorite types of fruit to dip are grapes, strawberries, and blackberries. It also goes well with apples, pineapples, and peaches.

Is marshmallow fluff the same as marshmallow cream?

Marshmallow fluff and marshmallow cream are so similar that it is hard to tell them apart. You can use them interchangeably in this fruit dip. The biggest difference between them is the way they are mixed or whipped. Marshmallow fluff has a slightly lighter and fluffier consistency than marshmallow cream.

There are only a handful of simple ingredients in this classic homemade fruit dip. Here’s what you need to have when you make it.

  • Marshmallow Fluff: This is what gives the dip its sweet flavor and fluffy texture.
  • Cream Cheese: Use full-fat cream cheese for the richest flavor, and make sure you soften it before you mix it.
  • Vanilla Yogurt: Either regular or Greek yogurt will be perfect in this dip.

    I have used sugar free jello. Just a teaspoon or so to flavor and color dip. Also I use my medium food processor and spray plastic scraper and inside of processor with just a small amount of cooling spray so the marshmallow cream doesn’t stick so bad

    Not sure if I could make this in these times of Covid, but… I’m putting it in my recipe book (a looseleaf binder) to keep for the future. Thank you for another good recipe, Michael, and a reminder that good times will come again.


    Even though you’ve been making it for years, it’s a new twist on an old favorite for me. The fruit dip I’ve been making for decades is simply 7 oz. of marshmallow creme + 8 oz. cream cheese. I like the idea of adding the yogurt & cherry juice. I must try this variation. Thanks for sharing!!

  • Barbara at Mantel and Table at

    Yaay – this is what I’ve been looking for! It’s beautiful and sounds fabulous! I sure with I could have gone to your bed and breakfast! 🙂

  • Carol M. Matheney at

    You are correct! This is the greatest fruit dip – I have been making it for years. It is also really good on a fork . . . . ; )

  • Carol at

    I make something similar. A container of Cool Whip, a container or yogurt, mix together. You use whatever flavor yogurt that compliments the fruit you’re serving. It thickens if you let it sit in the fridge a little while.

  • Terry T. at

    add a splash of Grand Marnier! over the top!!!
