Strawberry-Orange Whipped Fruit Dip

Doesn't the title alone make your mouth water?
I brought this to a birthday party this weekend, and people were eating it straight out of the bowl. They put it on fruit, they put it on cake, they even put it on sweet potato bread. And you know what? It tasted AMAZING on anything. It's super easy, makes a ton, and everyone will kiss your feet after one taste.  Seriously, my dears, you will be crowned queen of the party.

  • 8 oz whipped cream (I made my own)
  • 8 oz strawberry-flavored creme cheese
  • 7 oz of marshmallow fluff
  • 3 Tbsp orange juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp berry fruit juice (optional)
Mix together until smooth.
If the mixture does not smooth, add a tiny bit more orange juice or the berry juice. I happened to have some V8 fruit juice in the fridge this weekend and tried it, just to give the mixture a tiny bit more color. It tastes FANTASTIC without the berry, and it tastes FANTASTIC with it. Choose your destiny and don't look back :]
Now, dig in and prepare to be worshiped!

P.S. Homemade Whipped Cream
  • 1 pint heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 Tbsp confectioner's sugar
Mix with electric mixture, blender, or in food processor (or have your kids shake a tupperware container of the ingredients--they'll love it and the cream will still taste great! Two birds, one stone!). Add more sugar or vanilla as needed. I'm a big sweet tooth, so maybe my recipe is a little too sweet for some. Just play around with it. It's impossible to get wrong! :]

  1. I'm always afraid to bring fruit to parties because I don't know what to do with it beyond toss it into a salad. That dip is basically going to be a lifesaver.
