This Pineapple Cream Cheese Fruit Dip is so quick and easy to make. It is an easy party favorite and a recipe for kids to make all by themselves!
Easy Cream Cheese Fruit Dip Recipe
When I was a teenager, I attended a church even that had this strawberry fruit dip made with marshmallow cream and I’ve been eating it ever since. The other day our daughter spotted pineapple cream cheese at Walmart and immediately had to have it for a new fruit dip recipe.
There are many different dips made with cream cheese out there and hey, I’m not going to turn any of them down, but I also happen to have my favorite.
A really good fruit dip should be simple so you can throw it together in a flash and very creamy and fluffy. Unfortunately, many sweet cream cheese dip recipes just taste like cream cheese and lack that wonderful volume and flavor.
This really is the greatest fruit dip ever and I think every kid on the block that would agree with me and all the adults want it just as bad. You see, I’ve never served this pineapple cream cheese dip without everyone asking me for the recipe. And I certainly take great joy in saying that it’s just a 2-ingredient fruit dip!!
What’s Needed for This Cream Cheese Fruit Dip?
I HIGHLY recommend you start your kids learning how to cook by making something simple and crave-able like this pineapple cream cheese fruit dip. It’s so easy to stir together and will get them feeling proud, accomplished and inspired in the kitchen.
Here’s what you’ll need to make this cream cheese fruit dip recipe:
- Flavored Whipped Cream Cheese — There are a few different whipped cream cheese flavors out there such as blueberry and strawberry. And now you can find pineapple flavored cream cheese!
- Marshmallow Fluff — This stuff is pure sugar, but it will make for the fluffiest fruit dip ever.
What Is Marshmallow Fluff?
Marshmallow fluff is a confectionary that is similar to marshmallows in flavor, but not in texture. Marshmallow fluff is much softer and smoother, more like melted marshmallows.
Can You Use Marshmallows Instead of Marshmallow Fluff?
You can substitute marshmallows in place of marshmallow fluff only in recipes that will be heated, so the marshmallows will melt, (such as fudge). Unfortunately you can’t sub them in a fruit dip.
Can I Use a Marshmallow Fluff Substitute?
If you’re looking for a marshmallow creme substitute, try this homemade marshmallow fluff. I honestly haven’t ever made homemade marshmallow fluff, but ever since seeing that I could I’m not determined to make it happen the next time I make a marshmallow fruit dip.
How to Make Homemade Fruit Dip
I doubt I need to give you instructions on how to make this marshmallow cream cheese fruit dip. Simply stir together the pineapple cream cheese and the marshmallow fluff, then serve with your favorite fruits!
What to Serve with Fruit Dip
Is it odd that I always have to think for a hot second before running off to buy fruit for a fruit platter? Here are my favorites that pair well with this sweet cream cheese dip:
- Kiwi in thick pieces
Can I Use Yogurt In This Recipe?
If you’re not into the whole cream cheese thing, you can use a cream cheese substitute like a yogurt. Yes, that would make it a yogurt fruit dip so it’d be a healthier fruit dip. It’d also be thinner in texture, so make sure you consider that when substituting. Also, you can really play around with flavors now, any kind of yourt will work.
If using yogurt rather than cream cheese, add nothing bigger than a 3-ounce container.
How to Store Cream Cheese Fruit Dip
Pineapple dip stores very well just in a plastic container with a lid. However, it will begin to break down quickly if you do these two things:
- Storing the dip with the fruit will allow juices to seep in.
- Dipping the fruit directly in the bowl will leave bits of juices behind as well which will cause the breakdown of the dip.
How Long Will Fruit Dip Last?
Pineapple fruit dip, or other cream cheese fruit dips will keep for 3-4 days in the refrigerator.
Tips for Making Cream Cheese Fruit Dip
As I mentioned above, you’re welcome to make this pineapple dip recipe as written or you can use other flavored cream cheese spreads.
Although we’ve labeled this recipe as a cream cheese fruit dip, you can enjoy it with so much more than fruit! Think: Nilla Wafers, graham crackers, pretzels, and more!
This pineapple cream cheese dip will last up to 5 days in the fridge, but if serving to guests I recommend serving it the same day you make it.
