♥ FRUIT DIPS





















FRUIT DIPS

I chopped up a lot of fruit this weekend so I could share my fruit dips with you. Here are two of my favorites. Sometimes during the hot summer months, I like nothing better than a bowl of cold fruit and one of these wonderful dips.....

♥♥♥ Orange Cream Fruit Dip ♥♥♥♥


4 ounces cream cheese, room temp.
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon orange zest
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup whipping cream

Add cream cheese, vanilla extract and orange zest to a medium bowl then beat on medium speed with a hand mixer (or stand mixer with paddle attachment) until smooth. Add powdered sugar a little at a time, mixing after each addition. Add orange juice then beat until smooth. Add cream then continue to beat with mixer until thick and creamy, about 1 minute.

♥♥♥♥ Strawberry Yogurt Fruit Dip ♥♥♥♥♥


1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1- 6 oz container (any brand) strawberry yogurt
1/2 cup finely chopped frozen strawberries
1/2 cup marshmallow cream or marshmallow fluff
...
Finely chop/blend frozen (thawed) strawberries in a food processor or food chopper. If you choose to chop them by hand, do it while they are still partly frozen. Using a stand mixer, or hand mixer, beat cream cheese until fully smooth. Add strawberry yogurt and blend until smooth. Add chopped strawberries (with juice). Add marshmallow cream. Blend until fully combined.

Put dip in the refrigerator to set up for at least 30 minutes. Serve with fresh fruit of your choice. Dip will keep well in the refrigerator for 2 days.
