Fruit Dip Recipes

October 14, 2011
Fruit Dip RecipesA very kid friendly way to serve apples, use up older bananas, and have a healthy snack! It doesn't get easier than this, and is healthier than caramel!


  • about a 1/2 cup of creamy peanut butter or crunchy if you must
  • 1 banana
  • 3-4 Tbsp. honey
  • an apple or two, sectioned, for dipping


Whirl the first three ingredients in a a processor or whip it up with a hand held blender till smooth and creamy. Make any adjustments you'd like, such as, more banana, more honey. What you want is a dip consistency. Maybe you don't have any honey? Try maple syrup! Dip your apples and snack away. Great for school lunches, after school snack, or even for dessert. Liven it up with sprinkles or raisins.

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!

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.

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 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!

Fruit Salad
(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.

Hi Lisa. Did you ever find the recipe? I remember having the same recipe in the lat 80's or early 90's, but can't find it. It was tang, vanilla pudding and non fat yogurt I think.

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!

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!

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 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
Salt (optional)

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 substituted plain yogurt for the sour cream and 1/2 packet of Splenda Naturals for the sugar. I added 1/2 chopped, unpeeled apple. This is a healthy snack, with lots of variety.

A bowl of cinnamon fruit dip.
