Easy Sweet Dip for Fruits

Light and creamy DIP that pairs perfectly with any fruit?! This is possibly the best Fruit Dip I’ve ever made, and it’s made with only 4 ingredients. The results are a super creamy and perfectly sweet Cream Cheese Fruit Dip.

Staring at that ⬆️ picture and dreaming of a big ole spoon and all the goodness inside that bowl! ♥ I also can’t decide between this Fruit Dip and my Churro Cream Cheese Fruit Dip.

Hi Hi!! It’s MON-daaaaay! How in the world did it get here so fast?!? There I was dancing the night away on Saturday, and then the next thing I know it’s Monday and my hangover is still here. Grrrr!

Three drinks, you guys…. 3 MIXED drinks. Again, MIXED! That means diluted alcohol… that means I can’t hang.
It’s hard to keep that 20-something stamina when you’re not 20-something. Ahem…

SO! HEY! How about them fruit dips!

Truth: I eat around 6 to 10 servings of fruit each day, and I do it without a Dip. Buuuuut… money says that if I had this dip every day, I’d eat 50 servings of fruit per day. IN fact, I could eat ONLY fruit and this Cream Cheese Fruit Dip for the rest of forever!

Okay, wait. That’s pushing it. I also want tacos. AND Taratur. Bacon, too.

How To Make Cream Cheese Fruit Dip

I had the most amazing strawberries couple of weeks back. Juicy and super, super sweet. They didn’t need a dip, but was I happy when I did pair them up with it. The strawberries were a 10 before that, yes, but slightly better with all that creaminess around them.

  • Place the cream cheese in a mixer’s bowl and beat on low speed until creamy and smooth.
  • Slowly add the yogurt and continue to beat until well combined. You can use plain yogurt or fruit yogurt, your choice.
  • Add brown sugar and vanilla; beat until combined and smooth.
  • Taste for sweetness and adjust accordingly.
  • Cover the dip and place in the refrigerator for a couple of hours.
  • Remove from fridge, stir, and serve with fruit for dipping.

This sweet Dip exists somewhere in the world between a spread and a dip. Milk will help reach that desired consistency. It’s definitely light, but rich, and a spoonful of sugar just makes the whole dang thing totally over the top.

It is  the perfect Brunch refresher after a night out on the town OR something to have after a day at the BEACH! (It’s barely 50 degrees out here today so the beach sounds like something I will never see again! UGH!)

Servings : 12 Servings
Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes

Ingredients
  

  • 1 package (8 ounces) 1/3 Less Fat Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1 tub (8 ounces) non fat plain yogurt
  • ¼ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • fruit for dipping

Instructions
 

  • Place the softened cream cheese in your mixer's bowl and beat on low speed until creamy and smooth.
  • Slowly add the yogurt and continue to beat until incorporated.
  • Add brown sugar and vanilla; beat until combined and smooth.
  • Taste for sweetness and adjust accordingly.
  • Cover the dip and place in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours.
  • Remove from fridge, stir it well, and serve with fruit for dipping.

Notes

  • Cream Cheese: For a lightened-up version, I use Neufchatel Cheese or Low Fat Cream Cheese, but feel free to use regular, full-fat cream cheese. Also, if the cream cheese is not softened prior to mixing it with your mixer, it will turn out grainy and lumpy. It’s important to set the cream cheese on the counter for about 30 minutes to an hour before you start working with it. 
  • Yogurt: To keep it as light as possible, I use non-fat plain yogurt, but I have also tried this with fruit yogurt, and it’s even better. 
  • Brown Sugar: Use the suggested amount, taste it, and see if you want to add more.
  • If you need to thin it out, add a tablespoon of milk at a time, stir until combined, and add more if needed.
