High Protein Chocolate Fruit Dip
Okay, I will admit that I’m an offender of sneaking vegetables into treats. Some people are down with this, others steer clear. Personally, I’m all in, but I understand the anxiety one might feel when they’re about to dump a can of black beans into brownie batter.
One thing I will suggest is: Give sneaky veggies a try. In many, many cases you end up with undetectable veggies flying stealth in a healthy treat! Youmight even be able to sneak a few veggies in your child’s diet, which is a major win. However….
No Veggies in This Treat
This chocolate fruit dip has nothing to hide… except some protein to support your gains (love you, thank me later!) Instead of chickpeas or avocado, how about some creamy yogurt, cocoa powder, and honey? That’s much more approachable (and oh so delicious, trust me.)
Spring Means Strawbs!
Blessed be; the suns out a little longer, the temps are inching higher, and strawberries are cheap again! This protein fruit dip was MADE for berries: really cutting though those tart berries with creamy bliss. You can also enjoy this protein fruit dip with salty pretzels, plain or caramel-coated rice cakes, and other fruits like raspberries or apples. It’s a crowd pleaser for sure!
Weigh out these two effective options I’ve tested to yield a healthy yogurt dip that suits your fancy.
Plain Greek yogurt pros: Most natural. Loaded with protein & probiotics. Very easy to find.
Plain Greek yogurt cons: Will give your dip a slightly tangy taste. That’s neither good or bad, just personal preference.
Carbmaster yogurt pros: Less tart and more sweet than plain Greek Yogurt. V. creamy!
Carbmaster yogurt cons: Only available at Smiths and Kroger. Sweetened with dextrose and sucralose.
What the hell, why not add a scoop of your favorite protein powder? That’ll lend some sweetness and a little creaminess, too. I am using iHeartMacros Vanilla Crème powder again because it’s a very mellow vanilla that’s naturally sweetened. I’ve found that this whey isolate powder plays well in recipes (like my Swolemate Sugar Cookies).
Blueberry Fruit Dip
This conversation is sponsored by WhiteWave Foods. The opinions and text are all mine.
This blueberry fruit dip is a fun lunch box alternative. Send it to school with the kids with fresh fruit for dipping, or serve as an after school snack. It’s only 3 ingredients!
This time of year it seems most of my conversations start with “Boy, the summer really flew by! I can’t believe it’s time for the kids to go back to school!” The lazy hazy days of summer are becoming a distant memory, and the rush of back to school and all that it entails is upon us. That means time for making school lunches. My kids have “brown bagged” lunches daily. Not very often do they take a hot lunch at school. I hate to give them the same thing everyday, I mean who wouldn’t get tired of the same sandwich every day? I know I would!
We like to mix it up, some days they are happy with a sandwich, other’s they like a nice salad or just fruit and cheese and crackers!
“Buying real food for your family should not be expensive or time-consuming. Kroger is working to ensure that you can find the foods your family needs at your local grocery store by providing products from brands such as Silk, Horizon Organic, and Yulu.”
Grocery shopping at my local, Kroger owned, Baker’s Supermarket, I can always find inspiration. I especially love their natural foods section! So many choices, and you know you can’t go wrong, because they aim to be natural and organic.
Need some inspiration of your own? Visit Kroger’s Inspired Gathering for Recipes, DIY + Décor, Tips + Tricks, and Cleaning hacks.
My kids love fruit in general, any kind, you name it, but if you pair it with some fruit dip, they are over the moon! What better thing to add to their lunch to get them through that second half of their day with a smile?!
This yummy dip is super easy, and only has three ingredients. Change up the flavor with the flavor of yogurt you choose, make it for a party or when they have friends over after school, and double it or triple it up!
Cream the cream cheese and honey together until smooth, then fold in the yogurt. Done and Done! Feel free to throw in some fresh fruit if you desire.
Serve it up with your favorite fresh fruits, for a wonderful lunch or snack. My kids love the Horizon Cheese Sandwich Crackers, so a baggie of those takes the place of the sandwich. It’s a perfect lunch and not a boring old sandwich. I always pack extra in their lunch boxes when I make something special, so they can share with their friends!
So many Dip Recipes!!
This fruit dip has 3 ingredients, great for snacking, or for lunch!
- 2 ounces Horizon Organic Cream Cheese
- 1 Tablespoon Honey
- 1 (5.3 ounce) container Yulu Blueberry Yogurt
Cream together cream cheese and honey, fold in yogurt. Serve with fruit.
** Can easily be doubled or tripled for parties!

Easy Cream Cheese Fruit Dip
This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #ColorYourSummer #CollectiveBiasMy kids are out of school so summer has officially begun for our family. Which means that we have lots of time to explore, hangout and stay up late. The kids are loving it. We also love to host backyard parties for lots of friends. Every year we hold an annual homework burning party. All of the kids friends come over with their piles of homework from the year and we burn it! It has become a favorite tradition. We usually roast hotdogs and marshmallows, but I always like to offer something on the side. This year I decided I would do a fruit platter with my easy cream cheese fruit dip.
Last week while grocery shopping at Kroger I noticed these great food storage products from Rubbermaid. I thought the Rubbermaid Refill Reuse™ 20oz bottles would be very handy to help stay hydrated this summer and the Rubbermaid party platter would also be super helpful in taking healthy snacks along with us. Plus I love the limited edition summer colors of calypso coral and lagoon blue. (These great Rubbermaid products are also available at any Kroger banner store location).
These Rubbermaid products have really made picnics, parties and traveling with food easy. The party platter has a divided base to keep the food separated, plus a really cool and removable Twist & Seal™ dip container that nestles into the middle. This is perfect for serving and storing my amazingly easy cream cheese fruit dip. (I am sharing the recipe below).
In the summer it is so easy for my kids to eat junk food all the time, so I try and find ways to offer healthy options that my kids will enjoy. This fruit tray with the easy cream cheese fruit dip was a hit at our homework burning party. The kids kept gravitating to it. It looks so pretty too.
The Rubbermaid Refill Reuse™ 20oz bottles are easy to use and really convenient with a finger loop for carrying and a leak proof lid. They also fit in standard cup holders which is a huge plus! I decided to try my easy summer lemonade in them to enjoy. I simply mix up my favorite 2 quarts of powdered lemonade mix leaving out 1 cup of water. Then I add 1/4 cup lemon juice and a cup ice to cool it down. Plus each bottle gets two lemon slices. A wonderful cool drink to enjoy in the hot weather.
We love the fruit tray and lemonade so much we took it to the mountains with us today as our snack. I had everything prepped and in the food storage containers waiting to go in the fridge. That way I could grab and go whenever we leave.
We stopped by the Little River in Townsend to cool off and enjoy a treat. I was amazed and pleased to see the kids snacking on the fruit. I have tried different ways to get them to eat more fruit on the go, but sometimes it is just so hard to pack. The Rubbermaid party tray really has made a difference and is so easy to use. This will be a staple in our summer travels.
Now for my recipe for the easy cream cheese fruit dip that everyone loves. (The printable recipe is below also) It is so simple I can’t believe it! 3 ingredients are all you need:
1 8oz block cream cheese (softened)
1 cup lightly packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
With an electric mixer mix all ingredients until well blended. Serve with your favorite fruit (we like strawberries, pineapple, grapes and blueberries). Store in the refrigerator.

Cream Cheese Fruit Dip
Spring is upon us which means everything fruit! From my Pina Colada Fruit Salad to my Watermelon Pineapple Fruit Salad to my Grilled Pineapple Salsa, I am obsessed with spring and summer fruits and one of my absolute ways to devour fruit is dunked in this Key Lime Cream Cheese Fruit Dip! I am soooooo in love with this fruit dip. borderline obsessed. Its quick, easy, unbelievably delicious and sooooooooo creamy!
For my first fruit dip test run, I did used just key lime yogurt, cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk and although it was really good, it was missing a little something-something. So, I ran back to the store and added Pina Colada Yogurt. Magic.
The resulting cream cheese fruit dip is sweet, creamy and tangy with layers of both key lime and coconut. You can play around with how sweet or how tangy you want the dip to make it YOUR favorite Fruit Dip! For sweeter, simply add some honey, for tangier, simply add some lemon juice.
Key Lime Cream Cheese Fruit Dip. The next time those need something fresh and sweet and smooth and creamy cravings hit, you’ll know what to do.
Ingredients for Fruit Dip
You won’t find any marshmallow fluff, heavy cream or whipped cream in this cream cheese fruit dip recipe, just pantry friendly:
- cream cheese
- sweetened condensed milk
- vanilla extract
- Key Lime Yogurt
- Pina Colada Yogurt
- Juice and zest from 1 lime
- lemon juice
How to Make Fruit Dip
What’s almost as amazing as the silky, creamy Key Lime Cream Cheese Fruit Dip, is the fact that it can be whipped up in just 5 minutes! 5 minutes! Now that’s the easiest cheesecake I’ve ever made.
To make, simply whip together Key Lime Yogurt, Pina Colada Yogurt (I used Yoplait®), cream cheese (I use light), sweetened condensed milk, the juice and zest of one lime and a splash of lemon juice. Sweet, tangy and perfect for dipping!
How to Soften Cream Cheese For Fruit Dip
Cream cheese is a key ingredient in this easy Cream Cheese Fruit Dip recipe. It adds body, tanginess and of course that cheesecake-like goodness. It is important that your cream cheese be softened to room temperature or else you will get lumps in your dip – which kind of defeats the purpose of SILKY fruit dip!
In order to prevent lumpy fruit dip, you have three options to soften your cream cheese:
- Water bath: This is my preferred method to soften cream cheese because it softens it evenly throughout without the risk of “melting” it or scorching it. To create a water bath, fill a medium bowl with hot water. Place the sealed, packaged cream cheese in the bowl for 10 minutes to soften. If it isn’t soft enough after 10 minutes, then dump out the hot water, refill and repeat.
- Counter + Microwave: This is my second preferred method as it is super quick and easy and allows the cream cheese to come to room temperature evenly. Cube cream cheese and transfer to a microwave safe plate. Microwave for 30 seconds then allow cream cheese to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes. This gives it a head start to soften at room temperature. I don’t recommend just allowing the cream cheese to sit at room temperature without microwaving or it won’t become soft enough within 60 minutes. By both microwaving and sitting, we get the best of both worlds.
- Microwave: This method is if you need cream cheese NOW but it is a little more risky because the cream cheese can not only become too soft but can soften unevenly and worst of all, overcook – so proceed with care and caution. Cube cream cheese and transfer to a microwave safe plate. Microwave for 15-20 seconds, stir and microwave another 10 seconds. Repeat until cream cheese is softened.
WHAT To serve with FRUIT DIP Recipe?
First, I dunked my fruit in the silkilicious cream cheese fruit dip until the fruit was gone. Then, I was smothering anything I could get my hands on from granola bars to pretzels because in my book, dippers are just a vehicle to envelop in luscious, cream cheese fruit dip, so I can consume luscious, creamy Key Lime Cream Cheese Fruit Dip. I should have just grabbed a spoon.
Try this Fruit Dip with these fruit options:
Other options for fruit dip:
- Sweets: cookies, lemon bars, brownies or granola bars, scones, donuts
- Breakfast: If you have leftovers, this fruit dip is delicious mixed with berries and granola to create a parfait or on pancakes or in crepes
Can I make Fruit Dip Ahead of Time?
If your taste buds just can’t wait, then you can devour the Cream Cheese Fruit Dip right away, but the dip thickens and the flavors are even more unbelievably delicious if refrigerated overnight or even 24 hours, making this fruit dip the perfect make ahead snack or appetizer any time your crave something a little more decadent, a little more sweet, a lot more delicious.
For me, that’s all the time.
How Long is Fruit Dip Good For?
Store this Cream Cheese Fruit Dip in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
CAN I FREEZE FRUIT DIP?
Some fruit dips are okay to freeze that contain marshmallow fluff but I do not recommend freezing this fruit dip because it is almost 100% dairy which will separate when frozen and thawed.

The Best Fruit Dip Ever
Unlike permed bangs and neon everything, this recipe for The Best Fruit Dip Ever has stood the test of time. My family and I have been eating this sweet and yummy dip recipe since the 80s!
Fruit Dip is a mixture of softened cream cheese, marshmallow fluff, and orange juice concentrate. The texture is super whippy while the flavor is best described as marshmallow cheesecake meets orange creamsicle.
Serve Fruit Dip with fresh fruits, berries, and dippers…or a giant spoon!
Fruit Dip Ingredients
- Marshmallow Fluff. Also known as Marshmallow Creme. I prefer using the “Marshmallow Fluff” brand of marshmallow creme, found at World Market, as it’s gluten free.
- Softened Cream Cheese. I use 1/3 less fat cream cheese in this recipe though full fat is awesome too. It’s important that your cream cheese is VERY SOFT before mixing with the other ingredients otherwise you can end up with little lumps.
- Orange Juice Concentrate. Just a couple tablespoons of frozen >> thawed orange juice concentrate takes this fruit dip from incredible to phenomenal. Use the remaining concentrate to make a jug of OJ!
Why is My Fruit Dip Lumpy?
If your cream cheese is not totally soft at room temperature, your dip can end up with little lumps. It will taste fine, but a smooth and creamy dip is part of the presentation! If you DO have little lumps, let the dip sit out for 20 minutes then blast through it again with a hand held mixer fitted with regular beaters, or a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment.
Fresh Fruit Dippers
I can’t think of a type of fruit or berry that wouldn’t be delicious dolloped with some of this yummy cream cheese dip, though we’ve always served it with the following:
- Pineapple chunks
- Apple slices
- Graham crackers
- Nilla wafers
Make Ahead of Time
Fruit Dip can be made several days ahead of time. Let the dip sit out for 20 minutes or so then give it a big stir and set out with dippers. It will last several days in the fridge after serving.
How to Make This Recipe
Like I said, all you need is 3 ingredients to make fruit dip:
- Cream cheese that’s been softened to room temperature.
- Marshmallow fluff/Marshmallow Creme
- Frozen orange juice concentrate that’s been thawed.
Scoop the marshmallow fluff into a large bowl then microwave for 15 seconds. Next add the softened cream cheese and orange juice concentrate then whisk until very smooth. Feel free to use electric beaters if you want it to come together even faster.
Chill for several hours or overnight then scoop the dip into a serving bowl and present with all your favorite fruits and berries. I hope you love this totally yummy and easy fruit dip recipe – enjoy!
