What is Fruit dip made of?
Easy recipe for a fruit dip:
- Cream cheese, softened
- Powdered sugar
- Whipped cream
- Marshmallow cream (optional)
- Assorted dipping fruits
(see full cream cheese dip recipe for fruit below)
Some people like to make their fruit dip with marshmallow fluff (marshmallow cream), but we like our fruit dip without marshmallow cream for the not-too-sweet, creamy texture that still allows the fruit flavors to come through, too.
You can try it as a marshmallow fruit dip and see if you like it that way, too!

Why is my fruit dip lumpy?
A recipe for fruit dip with cream cheese will sometimes make a lumpy fruit dip if the cream cheese is too cold. Allow your cream cheese (or dip, if already assembled) to come to room temperature and then use a hand mixer to blend until smooth.
Does fruit dip need to be refrigerated?
Yes, because of the dairy products in fruit dip, it will need to be refrigerated. If you’re going to use the fruit dips recipe for a party, simply set your dip bowl in a bowl of ice to keep it cool for the entire party.
How long does fruit dip last in the fridge?
Fruit dip can last in the refrigerator for around 3-5 days. When you remove it, allow it to come to room temperature and then stir it before serving.
