Put all ingredients in a bowl & beat until smooth with an electric beater. Chill & serve with cut up fruit.
Delicious with all fresh fruit. Vary the flavor by using different flavored yogurts.
Arrange sliced fruit on platter to be used with dip. To prepare dip, blend marshmallow creme, cream cheese and spices.
For a delicious, addictive fruit dip, mix equal parts cream cheese (plain or fruit flavored) with marshmallow fluff from a jar. It's great with tart apples.

I make this recipe all the time - it is just so easy. My kids just love to dip cantalope, grapes and strawberries in it. What you will need are the following:
Whip the milk and pudding together. Fold in the cool whip.
Refrigerate until ready to use. Happy dipping. Enjoy!

Cream the cream cheese; add marshmallow cream. When well blended, add Cool Whip. Serve with chunks of cantaloupe, honeydew melon, pineapple, apple, banana, grapes, strawberries, etc.

Place OJ can at room temperature or in fridge until melted. Place 3 Tbsp. of liquid into bowl and add 1 8-oz. container or your choice of sour cream. Mix by hand until integrated and color is golden. Place a few spoons in a container for you to save and place the rest into a small glass serving bowl.
Place bowl in center of a pretty plate and surround with fruit such as orange segments, grapefruit, strawberries, cut pineapple or grapes. Guests can spoon some dip onto their plates with preferred fruit.
Hint: If oranges retain too much white rind, use a vegetable peeler to remove excess.]

Very easy and good! Good with most any fruit!
My Aunt gave me this recipe. She caters weddings and this is one of her staple recipes. It is the best fruit dip I have ever eaten. Enjoy!
Mix well. Serve with various fruits, cut up into small pieces.
This is a great way to use your leftover cranberry sauce and whipped topping. This recipe said it could be saved for Christmas or New Year's and served with fruit like red and green grapes, apples, kiwi, strawberries, etc., but I plan to serve this anytime of year, especially for summertime.
With just a few ingredients you can make this delicious fruit dip recipe. Serve it with your favorite cut fruits.
In a mixing bowl, combine sugar, mustard, paprika, celery seed and salt. Add honey, vinegar, lemon juice and onion. Pour oil into mixture very slowly, beating constantly.
Mix the two together well, and chill until thickened. Dab it on fruit salad or dip your fruit into it.

I don't know if anyone can help or not. Years ago, when fresh fruit and dip first became popular, I had a recipe for a dip that was made with, I think, vanilla pudding mix and Tang drink mix, but I'm not sure what else. Does anyone else remember this or have this recipe? At the time, it was like the only one out there, but of course, now there are so many, and I haven't been able to find this on any recipe website. Thanks!
I don't have a recipe for that one, but I'm looking for one myself----just any fruit dip. I went to Allrecipes.com----one of my favorite sites for all types of recipes!! They do have a lot of fruit dip ones, so go visit that site!!
I found a great recipe, though no Tang is involved. Using an electric hand mixer, combine equal parts softened cream cheese and Marshmallow Fluff, and a teasoon or so of either freshly grated orange zest or sweetened orange peel from a jar. It's really yummy!
Hi Lisa...not sure if this is the one you want but it can't hurt to look. http://www.back nge-pudding.html
(makes 6 to 8 servings)
1 (15-oz) can fruit cocktail, drained; save juice
1 (15-oz) can pineapple tidbits, drained; save juice
1 small box vanilla instant pudding
2 tablespoons tang powder
4 small or 3 large bananas
Put drained fruit in a medium size bowl that has a lid. Add the drained juice to the vanilla instant pudding and 2 tablespoons powder tang. Mix well, it will become thick. Pour over the drained fruit and refrigerate overnight or at least 5 hours. Add peeled, sliced bananas and stir. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.

I make an easy fruit dip recipe that tastes great!
1 container of cool-whip
1 sm container of orange juice concentrate (I'm sure you can use tang in place of the OJ)
1 pkg instant vanilla pudding mix
combine all then put in fridge. Great for anykind of fruit dipping. tastes like a creamsicle
I put the dip in a carved out pineapple and that is my center.
I am looking for a honey lime fruit dip recipe. With fresh fruit on the way, it would be a welcome addition to a summertime meal. I tried to make one with low-fat yogurt, honey and fresh lime juice/zest. Although it tasted great, it came out way too runny, almost like a sauce. Hope you can help!
By Susanne56 from OH
I would suggest draining the yogurt first. Take a mesh strainer and line it with paper towels and put it over a bowl. Put the plain yogurt into this and let drain overnight. What you will have is a very thick yogurt. Then add the honey and lime juice until you get the desired consistency. Sounds yummy :)
1 cup plain yogurt
2 tbsp. honey
1 tbsp. lime juice
Grated zest of lime to taste
Mix well. Cover and chill overnight.
Thank you for the suggestions. The favor IS wonderful... sweet enough to enhance the fruit(especially strawberries and kiwi fruit), but it doesn't mask the true fresh fruit flavor. Deeli's recipe sounds like mine except mine was for fat free or low-fat yogurt. Maybe that's why it was so thin. I'll try it with regular yogurt. Maybe I could use fat free or low-fat if I drained it like samsmomie24 suggests. Draining is an excellent idea.
I'll give both variations a try!
I'm looking for a dip recipe for apples. It has prunes and cream cheese in it, very healthy. I can't find it anywhere, but it is so delicious. Please help.

I have a recipe that is awesome. Hope this is the one you are looking for.
Dried Plum & Cream Cheese Spread
For spreading on sandwiches or toasted bagels, or with apples slices, crackers or celery sticks, you can't beat this combo of cream cheese, dried plums and walnuts.
1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup finely chopped dried plums, divided
1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts, toasted (optional)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 to 2 tablespoons orange juice, to taste
1 tablespoon honey
In bowl, combine cream cheese, dried plums, nuts, 1 tablespoon of the orange juice, honey, and cinnamon. Mix well. Add remaining orange juice, if necessary, to reach desired consistency. Season with salt as desired. To serve, spread onto toasted bagels, sliced apples, crackers or celery sticks.

I would love to have a recipe for fruit dip, one that uses cream cheese. All will be appreciated. Thanks and may God bless you in the New Year.

Happy New Year!
Mix the cream cheese with a mixer and powdered sugar till smooth, add the zest (about 1 tsp.), orange juice and blend well. Add the marshmallow creme, blend till smooth. Fold in the cool whip, taste. You should have just a hint of the orange, not too strong, taste as you go to the strength you like. You can use cherry liqueur in place of the orange or if you don't have the zest or orange, you can use some almond. Enjoy. The left over can be frozen. (12/30/2008)
A very easy tasty recipe. Equal parts of cream cheese and marshmallow cream, very good! (01/05/2009)
Amounts of pecans and vanilla are to taste. Some people add 1/2 tsp cinnamon.
There is never any of this left. I could eat it with a spoon! (01/05/2009)

Apple Brickle Dip
In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugars and vanilla, fold in the toffee bits.
Halve, core and slice the apples and soak in lemon-lime soda to keep them from darkening. Drain and lay the apple slices around the dip bowl. (01/06/2009)
