Ingredients Needed for Cream Cheese Fruit Dip

ingredients for cream cheese fruit dip in glass bowls.
  • Cream Cheese – The star of the show! I recommend using regular cream cheese, not low-fat. Low-fat cream cheese won’t be quite as thick and creamy.
  • Greek Yogurt – I like using plain Greek yogurt with no added flavors, but there’s certainly room for creativity here!
  • Vanilla Extract – This adds just the right amount of depth to the sweetness.
  • Powdered Sugar – Feel free to swap this with honey or any other sweetener you prefer.
  • Cream – Do not swap the heavy cream with any other dairy product! You need it to achieve the right consistency.

How to store Cream Cheese Fruit Dip

In an airtight container in the fridge, cream cheese fruit dip will stay fresh for 4-5 days. However, once fruit actually gets dipped into it, it’s best enjoyed immediately. Any new bacteria introduced from the dippers will cause the dip to spoil in a shorter time.

Can I freeze Cream Cheese Fruit Dip?

Sure thing! Keep it stored in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 1 month. Let it slowly thaw in the fridge prior to serving.

You may notice the texture is not as thick — this is because the cream deflates some as it thaws. It won’t affect the quality or the flavor!

What kind of fruit do you serve with Cream Cheese Fruit Dip?

Enjoy cream cheese fruit dip with grapes, strawberries, bananas, apple slices or really any other fruit you like best! Dippers like graham crackers and cookies are also pretty tasty.

Serving suggestions:

Serve this party dip as an appetizer or dessert. It’s pretty versatile, and there’s really no bad way to serve it!
