Simple & Sweet Fruit Dip

Posted by on 15 January 2014 in Be Inspired, In The Kitchen | 1 comment

I love getting together with our family’s friends to share dinner. The adults can usually get a few words of conversation in while the kids run around screaming, and you can divide up the food responsibilities so no one really has to do a ton of cooking. Plus, the only way you build community is by spending time together, and there is something special about doing that over a plate of delicious food.

One of my recent meal “assignments” was to bring fruit, so I hit the web to find something different than just a bowl of cut up fruit. In my search, I stumbled on the Iowa Girl Eats blog and her recipe for “The Best Fruit Dip Ever”. I figured she was overselling a bit, but the ingredient list was tiny, so I set to work.

First, I turned my bowls of grapes,  pineapple chunks, and strawberries into fruit skewers. I actually stuck them on lollipop sticks, which looked prettier than wooden skewers, but they started to get a bit soggy later in the night. Shoulda dug out my wooden skewers.

Then, I threw the marshmallow creme in the microwave for 20 seconds before whisking in 2 tbsp. of orange juice concentrate and 8 oz. of whipped cream cheese to make a big bowl of sweet deliciousness.

It was creamy and smooth, with just a hint of citrus, which paired perfectly with the fruit. Yum!

Simple…sweet…and serveable. My kind of potluck treat.
