    Default Favorite fruit dip?

    I'd like to send some cut up fruit and dip with my son when he goes to the beach for the day with a friend and the friends family but I have no idea what type of dip to make. What's your favorite? I'm embarrassed to admit I never use dip.

    Also what fruits would you suggest would hold up the best? I'm sending him with my Chilzanne rect server - no way he's getting my new tray

    Thanks for any and all sugggestions. I'll be shopping tomorrow after work since Thursday is the holiday here

    My fav fruit dip is simple. A block of Philadelphia Cream Cheese & a Jar of Marshmallow Cream combined. I soften the cream cheese & then add the marsh cream. Mix it up with my mixer till it's all fluffy. Chill it to serve.

    Grapes & strawberries work well for dippers. Pineapple does too. I would say apples but they get brown too fast.

    Not very healthy, but here's what I use as a fruit dip for a party:



    Mix 1 (8 oz) block cream cheese, softened with 1 jar (7 oz) Marshmallow cream.

    Add a few drops of food coloring, optional.

    Simple and healthier - "whipped" style LEMON yogurt. Occasionally I will blend a LEMON and a VANILLA. Folks like the lemon with the fruit. Melons, Apples, Pears, Grapes, Berries, it's all good!

    Okay, this is sooooooo not healthy but OMG it is AMAZING!! I went to a party on the weekend and the host served this with fruit. A few of us DEMANDED the recipe from her! LOL!!! I haven't tried making it myself but here goes!!

    1 pkg softened cream cheese
    2 cups softened Cool Whip
    2 tsp? of sugar (she didn't measure)

    Mix well and put in a serving dish.

    Drizzle 2 pkgs of the stuff that you use to make caramel apples. Finally top with 2 Skor bars broken into little pieces. I swear that there were nuts of some kind in there, too.

    This was the BEST fruit dip I have EVER tasted!!!!! I believe that she had pineapple, apples, Kiwi and strawberries. Mmmmmmmmm! I think I might have to make that up this weekend!!

    Happy Canada Day & 4th of July!!!!

    OH my favorite is: 1 block of cream cheese, 1 cup of powder sugar and a few drops of vanilla.

    Took it to Vacation Bible school last week and had people eating it by the spoonfuls.by the end of the week I just brought seperate cups for each of the workers.

    I use a block of softened cream cheese, a small jar of marshmellow creme, and about a half can of Eagle Brand milk. Mix with hand mixer until smooth and well blended.
    As for the apples, as soon as you slice them, dip them in lemon juice (I have also heard that Sprite works) and they will not turn brown.
    Don't forget....you can also add some of PC's sweet sprinkles to your dip.

    I do something similar, but then I add a large tub of cool whip and a splash of lemon juice! Doubles the amount of dip and makes it supper fluffy!

    You can buy the precut apple slices and they won't brown!!

    Another good one is cool whip + our Cinnamon Plus mixed together.
    I don't have exact measurements, but these are especially good with apples, but any fruit will work.
    I have also used cream cheese and marshmallow cream, and sometimes I use strawberry cream cheese + marshmallow cream.

    Mexican Chocolate Fruit Dip!!!

    1 tub Cool Whip (any kind, fat free works fine if you're trying to shave off some calories)

    Chocolate syrup - add enough to the Cool Whip to make it look "chocolate-ty"

    Heavy sprinkle of cinnamon mixed in (to taste) and then a light sprinkle on top for decoration.

    I have gotten rave reviews on this and it goes great with any type of fruit.

    We love this fruit dip:
    Creamy-Tang Fruit Dip
    1 8-ounce package of cream cheese, softened
    1 7-ounce jar of marshmallow cream
    1 1/2 teaspoons Tang orange drink mix
    Strawberries, raspberries, pineapple, whatever assortment of fruit you like

    Blend the cream cheese, the marshmallow cream, and the Tang until completely combined. Serve with fresh fruit and toothpicks!

    I actually have one that uses heath bar crunch WHIPPED cream cheese and brown sugar. I lick the bowl...lol. Let me know if you want it after all the great ideas/recipes that has been posted on here and I will be more than happy to share.

    Yes, you can certainly do the apples with the lemon juice and they will not turn brown. However, I find pineapple juice to have a better taste, escpecially for kids...a little sweeter. The acid is what keeps the apples from turning colors.
