Quick & healthy fruit dip

There are a lot of fruit dip recipes made with marshmallow fluff or powdered sugar which taste amazing. But if you’re looking for a lightened up version with less sugar, this is a great one to try! Traditionally, fruit dip is made with cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla. In my lightened up version, I swap the powdered sugar for honey and add Greek yogurt to add a great source of protein. I call it my no-fuss fail-free fruit dip!

How to make cream cheese fruit dip

To start, make sure the cream cheese is at room temperature. Add the cream cheese to a bowl with the Greek yogurt, honey and vanilla extract, and use an electric mixer to start whipping until the mixture gets fluffy.

After a few minutes of whipping with a hand mixture, the mixture will become soft, fluffy and completely homogenized. Then you can transfer it to a serving bowl or a platter and surround it with the fruits of your choice.

Tips for making cream cheese fruit dip

  1. Allow the cream cheese to come to room temperature. Just set it on the kitchen counter for 30 minutes to an hour and that should do the trick. This is an important step to ensure that there are no lumps in the fruit dip. If you’re running short on time, you can place the cream cheese in its foil in a hot water bath for 5-10 minutes.
  2. Use an electric mixer to combine the ingredients. It’s tempting to try to mix this by hand, but it will be really difficult to remove all the clumps. It’s best to use a hand mixer or stand mixer for a smooth and creamy texture, which will be perfect for dipping!
  3. Prevent fruit from browning by spritzing lemon juice over the fruit when it’s on the platter. You can also toss all the fruit in lemon juice before adding to the platter. The light lemon flavor is refreshing and helps the platter stay looking fresh longer!
  4. Make fruit dip variations with add-ins. Consider this cream cheese fruit dip a base recipe. Feel free to add cocoa powder to it it for a chocolate flavor, stir in some peppermint extract to serve during the holidays, or add lemon zest  for a bright spring flavor.
