Add a fresh fruit platter with an accompanying dip to the menu for your next gathering. This page contains fruit dip recipes.
Using a fork, whisk together strawberry cream cheese and the marshmallow cream until well combined. Serve with strawberries, apple slices, or any kind of fruit. Also good with pretzels.

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!

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!
Try using key lime or lemon flavored yogurt, lime zest. and 2 T honey. To make the dip greener, add a little green gelatin powder.
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!
(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 put the dip in a carved out pineapple and that is my center.

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.

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!

A quick sweet dip to enjoy with fresh apple slices.
This creamy dip is perfect to dip any of your favorite fruits in. It only uses a few ingredients and is quick to make.
When I offer fruit to guests or go to a "tail-gate", I use tooth-picked fruit and a healthy, easy dip to go along. Looks and tastes great. This is NOT sweet and sugary!
Very easy and good! Good with most any fruit!
Mix together well, chill and serve with apple slices and other 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.
