We love nothing more than snacking on fresh fruit in the summer. Everything is perfectly in season, and just tastes so deliciously sweet. Sometimes we’re looking for that little extra kick of something special to go with plain fruit, which is where marshmallow fruit dip comes in. Not only does it taste amazing, it also makes your snack of fresh fruit a bit more filling to get you through the day.

Flavor Variations

Orange Fruit Drip: Mix in 2 tablespoons of orange juice concentrate in with your dip and some orange zest for a bright, citrusy flavor. This is perfect for winter months.

Berry Fruit Dip: Instead of using regular plain cream cheese, use 8 ounces of Strawberry or Blueberry cream cheese spread. This is great for spring and summer.

Honey Cinnamon Fruit Dip: Beat in 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon and 2 tablespoons of honey. This is great for fall and winter.

Pumpkin Spice Fruit Dip: Beat in 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree along with 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin spice OR 1 teaspoon cinnamon + 1/4 tsp nutmeg + 1/4 tsp ginger + pinch cloves. This is pretty much the pinnacle of October parties.

Jello Fruit Dip: Beat in 3 ounces of Jello powdered mix. Fun flavor options include cherry, black cherry, mango, lemon-lime, peach, pineapple, green apple, grape, and fruit punch. This one is great any time of the year!
