Strawberry Cream Cheese Dip
Life as a mom gets hectic sometimes, doesn’t it?! It always seems like there is something to do or someone who needs our attention! As the meal planner, grocery shopper, and cook for our family, I need to plan 3 meals a day plus a snack – for seven people! With five growing kiddos, too, I try to be very conscious about what my family eats.
Luckily, I don’t usually have a problem getting them to eat fruit … but let’s be honest, it can get boring! Have you ever heard this line:
“Strawberries? (Or insert another food here) Again?!” (moans)
That’s what I hear when I buy lots and lots of containers of strawberries! (I get containers of strawberries for around 87 cents each. It’s economical!) With a little help from some cream cheese, I can whip up a batch of my (easy and kid-famous!) Strawberry Cream Cheese Dip and make those strawberries fun again!
Personally, I like to serve our Strawberry Cream Cheese Fruit Dip with whatever fruit is on sale that week. Add some graham crackers or chocolate animal crackers for the little ones, too!
Since it’s Spring, fresh fruit will be in abundance – why not treat your family to a fun and easy snack idea? And what is it about dips that makes them so fun to eat, anyway? They’re all so, so addicting! Enjoy.
Strawberry Dip: Ingredients & Equipment
To make this Strawberry Cream Cheese Fruit Dip, you’ll need …
- strawberry cream cheese – about 1 tub. I tend to head to Walmart and use Philadelphia Strawberry Cream Cheese, but you can use whatever brand you like!!
- marshmallow creme – also called marshmallow fluff. This provides the fluffy texture and additional sweet flavor that makes this dip so, so addicting. If you can’t find it at your local store or if you prefer to make it homemade, I have a recipe for homemade Marshmallow Fluff!
- bowl – this is a one-bowl recipe … how awesome is that?! You’ll only need it to mix the cream cheese and marshmallow creme together.
Cream Cheese Dip: FAQs
About a cup or cup and a half of it!!
Refrigerate it in a covered container for up to 3-4 days!
I wouldn’t recommend it since it doesn’t freeze and thaw well at all. It tends to crumble and separate. I’ve found using full-fat cream cheese helps with this a little, but not enough for me to want to store it. Instead, I just make a new batch each time.
Just a couple of minutes. All you’ll have to do is ensure the ingredients are fully mixed. No secrets here!
Besides fruit (strawberries, grapes, apples …) or graham crackers like I said above, you can try …
– mini snack cookies
– vanilla wafers
– angel food cake
– bagels or mini bagels
– You can also try throwing it into fruit parfait. Yum!!
Absolutely! In fact, I recommend it!! Crepes, shortcakes, fairy bread … these all taste amazing with some strawberry cream cheese dip.
Not at all. I’d say you could just use a fork, honestly!
Not in particular, since I feel like any you have available to you should be good.
