A Family Loved Fruit Dip with Cream Cheese

I stumbled upon this cream cheese fruit dip recipe when I wanted a quick snack for my kids, but they were getting sick of their normal yogurt. So, I looked at the yogurt and all the fruit still sitting in the kitchen and whipped this up in 5 minutes!

Now, 3 years later, it’s still their snack as soon as they get home almost every week! They get some yogurt and fruit in and a little indulgence, too.

I’m asked to make this fruit dip for family get-togethers, holidays, parties, and on a normal weekend. I’m thankful it only takes a few minutes to make because we’re making it constantly!

Between this fruit dip and my Cool Whip fruit dip, marshmallow fruit dip, strawberry fruit dip, and yogurt fruit dip, I feel like my family is eating enough of our favorite fruits to keep our local farm stand in business!

Ingredients For Fruit Dip With Cream Cheese

  • Cream cheese
  • Greek yogurt – I use plain, but I’ve used flavored and vanilla with success too!
  • Powdered sugar – you can use less if you are trying to lower your sugar intake
  • Vanilla – this adds that subtle but perfect flavor to add to the fruit

STEP ONE: In a large bowl, combine the cream cheese with Greek yogurt. Mix these together until it’s smooth. I recommend using a hand mixer.

Tips for Cream Cheese Dip for Fruit

  • Use a hand mixer to whip up the dip. It can make blending easier and gives a smoother consistency.
  • Take your time mixing the cream cheese and Greek yogurt until there are no lumps, so you’re left with a creamy texture.
  • Gradually add powdered sugar and taste as you mix to adjust the sweetness of the dip.
  • Use plastic wrap or airtight containers to store any leftovers as this fruit dip holds up great in the fridge.
  • Make sure the cream cheese is at room temperature for easy mixing and a smoother texture. If the cream cheese is too cold, it can form lumps in the dip. It’s still edible, but doesn’t look the best.
  • Sifting the powdered sugar can prevent any clumps in your dip and make it blend in more easily.

Variations/substitutions for Fruit Dip

  • Choose low-fat or fat-free cream cheese and Greek yogurt if you’re looking for a lighter variation to this cream cheese version recipe like in my yogurt fruit dip.
  • Use marshmallow fluff in place of the yogurt and powdered sugar. I do this in my marshmallow fruit dip recipe and it gives an extra sweet and creamy dip
  • A touch of citrus zest, like lemon or orange, can provide a refreshing twist to your dip.
  • Flavored cream cheese, like strawberry or honey, can add an extra dimension of flavor.
  • Add ½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon and ¼ teaspoon of ground nutmeg to this fruit dip for a fall-spiced version like my pumpkin fruit dip.
  • Don’t hesitate to try different fresh fruit for dipping. Apples, grapes, strawberries, and pineapple are great choices to pair with this cream cheese fruit dip.

What Should I Do if My fruit dip is Too Sweet?

If your fruit dip comes out too sweet, no worries at all! You can balance the sweetness by adding a bit more Greek yogurt or cream cheese and giving it a good mix.

Is it Safe to Leave a Fruit Dip with Cream cheese Out at Room Temperature During a Party?

It’s a good idea to keep creamy dip chilled in the fridge as long as possible to keep it fresh and safe to enjoy. If it happens to sit out for an extended period, especially on a hot day, toss it after 2 hours to avoid any risks. 

When I’m outdoors at a picnic or barbecue, I place the dip container in a cooler with some ice packs or keep it in the shade to keep it cold as long as possible.

What to Serve with Fruit Dip

My kids’ favorites are strawberries, grapes, apples, and pretzels, but I love to throw in some extra angel food cake, graham crackers, and vanilla wafers when serving for a party. It gives that extra bit of presentation and they all taste delicious with it!

We’ve even dipped some bananas and blueberries using toothpicks and they taste delicious!
