Fruit Dip Recipes

A 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 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.

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 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.
