Looking for some spring recipes? We are going crazy for this blueberry fluff fruit dip and it only takes two ingredients, cream cheese and marshmallow creme!
There’s nothing like our creamy, fluffy, sweet and simple strawberry fluff fruit dip, but then I started to wonder why in the world we’ve never made new versions. I never really think about making blueberry anything but after these Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake Squares started popping up in our popular posts I knew it was time to make a blueberry fluff fruit dip.
How to Make Fruit Dip with Cream Cheese
Cream cheese fruit dips can be a little lame. I had one once that was strictly cream cheese, lemon juice and powdered sugar. Now obviously I ate it, because who can resist, but it’s not something I’d ever make or ask for. It was boring.
On top of that, many cream cheese fruit dips are lumpy and that’s for sure not my fave. There’s something a little unappetizing about those nuggets of cream cheese breaking up the silky flavor of the rest of the dip. Make sure you cream cheese has set out for a good 15 minutes, 30 if it’s a brick so that it’s softened. People ask us why cream cheese needs to be softened and that’s your answer.
To make fruit dip with cream cheese you first need a flavor to put with the cream cheese, and no plain lemon juice doesn’t count. These days there are a lot of flavored cream cheeses you can buy at the store so if all else fails, grab one of those just like we did for our blueberry fluff fruit dip.
How Much Cream Cheese is 8 Ounces?
The next biggest question is how much cream cheese is 8 ounces or how much cream cheese is 4 ounces. Many of you know, but if you don’t, 8 ounces is about 1 cup, so 4 ounces is half of that. These days if you just buy the brick it has the ounces marked and you can easily cut and cook.
How to Make Fruit Dip with Marshmallow Creme (Cream)
Well first thing first, what is marshmallow fluff made of? It’s basically sugar, corn syrup, and egg whites. Not much to it but it’s fluffy and sticky almost like a melted marshmallow.
To make fruit dip with marshmallow creme (some brands will say marshmallow fluff but they are the exact same thing) just beat in any cream cheese or sour cream with flavorings like crushed pineapple. It makes for such a light and fluffy dip without doing too much work, my favorite kind of recipe.
How Long Does Fruit Dip Last
I’m not entirely sure on this question, so let’s work it out together, what is fruit dip? Fruit dip can be any combination of ingredients but because sour cream and cream cheese are most common we will stick with that and they last a pretty good amount of time in the fridge.
So, how long does fruit dip last? We’ve left it in the fridge for an entire week and it was perfect, so I’d say a couple of days just to be safe, but make sure you keep it in a sealed container.
How Long Can Fruit Dip Sit Out
When you’re getting ready for a party and want to get things out and worry more about seeing friends than being stuck in the kitchen you may wonder how long can fruit dip sit out. It’s not a meat so it lasts pretty well on the counter. Because it has dairy in it, fruit dip can sit out for up to 2 hours, after that it’s time to refrigerate the sucker.
Can Fruit Dip Be Made Ahead?
Fruit dip is perfect for parties, baby shower food and even bridal shower food or receptions not only because it’s a simple snack and the fruit is a lighter, healthier option, but because you can make it up to 2 days ahead of time and then just give it a quick stir before serving!
What to Serve with Fruit Cream Cheese Dip
Finally, let’s chat about what to serve with fruit cream cheese dip. We love to use bananas and strawberries the most, but graham crackers, apples, pretzels, and Nilla wafers are especially delicious as well.
