Strawberry Fluff Fruit Dip [+ Video]

35 Reviews

This strawberry fluff fruit dip is one of the first recipes I fell in love with as a kid and I still can’t get enough of it. All you need is two simple ingredients!

When I was a teenager, I had this marshmallow fluff dip for the first time and while I think it’s from Shannon Mattson —one of the sweetest, spunkiest and most tender hearted people I know — I could also be totally wrong. Either way, this easy fruit dip is pure heaven and I’ve got three kiddos over here licking their bowls clean in order to not miss out on a single bit.

And the very best part? It uses just two ingredients. Boo-yah. There’s literally nothing easier than buying two things at the store, whipping them together and serving with a platter of fruit. 

I’ve actually mentioned this a few times, but in case you are new on this blog, fruit and I are the best of friends. I’d actually take it over chocolate most of the time. Most of the time. (I mean, who could ever turn down a hot, homemade chocolate chip cookie?).

Strawberry Fluff Fruit Dip Ingredients

Like I said already, this is such an easy fruity dip recipe! To make this strawberry dip, you’ll need: 

  • Marshmallow Fluff – the jarred stuff you can buy at the store, Jet Puffed makes one called marshmallow creme. I’ve also heard you can buy strawberry flavored marshmallow cream, so if you can find that, go for it!!
  • Strawberry Cream Cheese – Philadelphia is my preferred brand, it’s a 7.5oz container

Seriously, that’s all it takes to make this incredible cream cheese dip! The exact measurements for each ingredient and instructions for the making the dip can be found in the recipe card at the end of the post.

How to Make Fruit Dip 

This strawberry marshmallow dip is so simple to make I think it takes less than 5 minutes to prepare! Here’s how to make fruit dip: 

  1. Beat the marshmallow fluff and cream cheese together until smooth. 
  2. Spoon into a serving dish and serve alongside your choice of fruit. 

Couldn’t be easier, right?! My kind of appetizer! It would be so cute at a baby shower for a little baby girl! Or a bridal shower! It is always a hit!

What to Serve with Fruit Dip

This is one of those fruity dip recipes that works best with strawberries and bananas, but really any fruit will work. Think: apples, pineapple, or even peaches and pears. You could also serve this dip with pretzels, Nilla Wafers, graham crackers, and more! 

Can I Use Another Flavor of Cream Cheese?

I don’t see why not! Use any fruit-flavored cream cheese you’d like. I’ve also seen cheesecake and brown sugar cream cheese, which would work nicely here too. 

Tips for Making Fruit Dip

This dip recipe turns out best if you let the cream cheese soften slightly before blending it with the marshmallow fluff. Let it rest on the counter for 10 to 15 minutes, then mix it into the fruit dip. 

When serving this fruit dip, you may notice that your fruit browns quickly. Bananas and apples in particular brown quite quickly once the air hits their flesh, but if you’re wondering how to keep apples and bananas from browning you can always just toss them with a little bit of lemon juice.

With that said, I’m going to be totally honest with you, I don’t like to do that. Lemon juice adds a little zip to the fruit and so as much as it pains me to say this, I prefer to cut the fruit right before serving. Yes, that means that we have one more thing to do before guests show up, but I’m willing to do it!

When my kids walk in the door from school and this strawberry marshmallow fruit dip is on the counter ready to be dipped into, it is all smiles in our house! It is thick and creamy and oh so easy! All you need is 2 ingredients and 5 minutes!

Instructions

  • Place the marshmallow fluff and cream cheese into a bowl and using an electric or handheld mixer, beat the two ingredients together until smooth.*

    • It works great! Just make sure that the cream cheese is at room temperature so it’s not lumpy. Enjoy!

  • Have had this dip for MANY years but add a box of Strawberry Jello mix with plain cream cheese….goes well with every fruit! Kids eat tons of fruit just for the dip. Can also add a touch of Ginger instead of Strawberry Jello for a more adult taste. Either way, it’s a HIT!!!

    • Ohhh I’ll totally try that!

  • I doubled the recipe for a party because the recipe says it yields only 4-6 servings….turns out it serves many more…after I ran out of fruit, we tried graham crackers with the remaining dip and that was also delightful! This is quite tasty!

  • Can you just use plain philly cheese and add your fruit and also I live in Australia so what is fluff

    • Comes in a jar, we use this to make fudge with. Kraft makes it along with other brands….

      • My mother used philly cream cheese and powdered sugar great on pears from a can. Can be used on any fruit and any fruit from a can. Hope you try it I think it is better than the strawberry cream cheese too strong.

      • Deborah,
        That sounds fantastic! Cannot wait to try it!

    • If you use plain cream cheese, squeeze in lemon juice. Great flavor for all fruit.

      • Reply
      • That’s a wonderful idea! We have a ton of fruit right now and I can try it out asap!

    • Fluff is marshmallow cream. If you don’t want to use cream cheese you can blend the marshmallow cream with plain or flavored yogurt and then add a fruit jelly of your choice for flavoring. Most people stick with berry types but a nice lemon would be good too.

  • I have used this recipe for years and everybody loves it. It tastes great with practically any fruit! I find if you whip the cream cheese first then add the marshmallow fluff, it’s easier and don’t get lumps.

    • Absolutely, whipping it first definitely helps!

  • I have made a very similar dip for many years. I use 16 ounce regular cream chees and 14 ounce marshemellow whip. Original recipe called for 8 ounce CC and 7 ounce whip but my family never thinks that is enough so I always have to double it I have never tried it with strawberry cream cheese, I’ll have to try it like that the next time. We eat it with strawberries, melon, pineapple, apples,
