Fruit may be nature’s candy, but a dollop of something sweet can make a platter of it even more appealing. Here, you’ll whip cream cheese and marshmallow creme until fluffy, then flavor it with a touch of vanilla extract. A scoop of frozen orange juice concentrate is an unexpected addition that makes this dip simply irresistible.

Serve the tangy dip as your next no-cook, make-ahead dessert, or include it as an unexpected treat in an after-school snack spread. Then, prepare to watch the fruit disappear.

What Is Fruit Dip Made Of?

Fruit dip is a simple mix of softened cream cheese and marshmallow creme flavored with vanilla extract and kosher salt. Frozen orange juice concentrate can also be added for a subtle citrus flavor.

What Fruit Should I Serve with Fruit Dip?

I like to choose at least one fruit from each of the following categories to include on my platter. Slice or cut the fruit into bite-sized pieces, or suprême citrus fruit. Be sure to include toothpicks or small forks for serving.

  • Berries: Strawberries, raspberries
  • Citrus: Oranges, grapefruit, mandarins
  • Grapes: Green or red seedless grapes
  • Other: Apples, pears, pineapple, mango, kiwi, peaches
