Strawberry Fruit Dip Two Ways

Recently,  this dip was served that many people raved about (I did not try it) including some family members.   I went online and checked my cookbooks and found many different versions.  I decided to go with a recipe from Taste Of Home which I adapted to my taste (healthier).   I did use a lower fat product for the cream cheese and Cool Whip; see comment below also.  One nephew said my recipe was better!

Strawberry Fruit Dip Two Ways

  • 1 (8 oz.) carton spreadable strawberry cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp. strawberry preserves (could add more or use jelly)
  • 1 (8 oz.) carton frozen whipped topping, thawed (Cool Whip)
  • 1 jar (7 oz.) marshmellow crème
  • fresh fruit such as strawberries,  pineapple and so on

In a medium size bowl beat the cream cheese and preserves until blended.  Fold in the thawed whipped topping and marshmallow crème.  Refrigerate until serving.

Comment:  You can change the flavor of this dip;  you could use a couple tbsp. of orange juice concentrate, thawed instead of the strawberry preserves.  There are also many varieties of cream cheese such as chocolate, blueberry or pineapple.

I just found my recipe that I use to serve with fresh strawberries.  I have many recipes in other files that I have yet to post on this blog and this is one of them (6-6-13).

Strawberry Dip

  • 1 (3 oz.) cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1-1/2 cups sour cream
  • 2 tbsp. Grand Marnier (Gene loved citrus flavored recipes)

Beat cream cheese until smooth.  Add sugar, sour cream and liqueur; beat until smooth.  Cover and chill until serving.
