Marshmallow and Citrus Fruit Dip

I love appetizers, and snack foods.  Fresh fruits and veggies are some of my favorites, because they don’t weigh me down, and I don’t feel guilty about snacking on them.  However, I do love them with DIP.  This fruit dip is so light and fluffy, and is the perfect dip for any fruit.

Made with marshmallow cream and cream cheese, this dip has great flavor that balances perfectly with the sweet and tart of fresh fruit.

Marshmallow and Citrus Fruit Dip

Ingredients

  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 7 oz marshmallow cream
  • 1- 4 Tbs orange juice- just enough to achieve the thickness and flavor you want
  • 1-2 tsp orange, lemon, or lime zest (optional)
  • Fresh fruit- washed, cut, etc.

Instructions

  1. In a medium mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Slowly beat in the orange juice. Start with the smaller measurement and add more if still too thick, or you want a stronger orange taste. Beat in the zest as well.
  2. Using a rubber spatula fold in the marshmallow cream. It takes a while to get it fully incorporated. A few lumps are ok. Do not beat it!
  3. Serve immediately, or chill in fridge until ready to serve. Accompany with your favorite fresh fruits to dip. (Strawberries, kiwi, bananas, raspberries, apples, blueberries, peaches, pineapple, etc.)

  1. The cream cheese/marshmallow fluff is my go-to fruit dip that everyone loves. I’ve never thought to add anything to it. I’ll have to give your additions a try. I bet the citrus gives it a great little something extra.
