Creamy Fruit Dip Recipe
Your guests will be amazed by this tasty dip, and it's so simple to make!
  • 1 8oz pkg Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1 7oz jar Marshmallow Cream
  • ½ cup Powdered Sugar (Optional, but helps to stiffen it up)
  1. Mix all ingredients until combined.

I even used it for the “Clouds” in my fruit rainbow this St. Patrick’s Day!! Did you see THAT POST?!



It’s not just great on fruit, either! This recipe makes enough for you to put on graham crackers, cookies, or top a bowl of strawberries with this instead of whipped cream!

  2. Rachel Poley says

    i have never made it with the powered sugar..i have always made mine with just cream cheese and marshmallow cream and that is Delicious too, but definitely going to have to try it with the powered sugar

        I don’t use the powdered sugar either……and have to say I don’t think you will miss it at all……This is soooo
        addictive……and you won’t want a 12 step prgram to stop using it…’s too yummy.

          I also don’t use the powdered sugar and it is amazing! It is the only fruit dip I will eat or make. :)

  4. eileen torgerson says

    I use an addition of 1 cup cream, whipped and fold it into that. Really, really good! No sugar added.

  5. dessert lover says

    Marshmallow, cream cheese and maraschino cherry juice — it is DELICIOUS and I hate maraschino cherries!

  6. Cyndi says

    We made this in my food prep class waaay back in my freshman year of high school. We didn’t use powdered sugar, but I’m guessing it gives it more stability. Reading all the comments of the new additions, I’m gonna have to make this old favorite again soon! It’s PERFECT with Granny Smith Apples 😀

  7. says

    I shall def. try this, I’ve normally done my dip with just the cream cheese and marsh mellow but I’m sure some sugar will add to its yummyness :)

  8. Melissa says

    I’ve made this dip many times, minus the sugar but with a tub of whipped cream cheese instead of block cream cheese. It blends super-easy and it’s pretty fluffy. Best dip ever :-)

  9. Hollye says

    Love this fruit dip! I have always made it w/o the powered sugar! I also add a couple tablespoons of orange juice!

  10. Fern says

    i make something almost like that. i use a jar of marshmallow cream and 1 pack of cream cheese mix it together. then i make 2 to 4 envelope of cool whip then mix all together yum. put a plastic wrap on top keep about a week in fridge, depend how much you like it lol. my kids and grandkids love that stuff the little one said yummy in my tommy lol have a great weekend.

  11. charlotte says

    I live in New Zealand and we don’t have marshmellow cream, what is it and do you have a substitute you could use for it?

  12. Kare says

    I call this “crack” for fruit … it is so delicious I will eat it when there isn’t any fruit in the house ! Only thing I do differently is skip the powdered sugar … it is sweet enough without it and if you add a splash of a citrus juice it livens it up even more.

  13. Jamie says

    My sister makes a version of this, that is SLAMMIN, and not quite as “unhealthy” as this one hehe. We use 2 8oz pkg Fat Free Cream Cheese, 8oz Fat Free Sour Cream, and 1/2 cup Splenda. Mix it all together and voila!!! It is AMAZING!!!! You can use more or less of the Splenda, to taste. I almost always double the recipe because it goes THAT fast around my house lol. We like to make ours with grapes.. layer grapes in container, and sprinkle with Splenda Brown Sugar Blend.. pour dip mixture over top and then add a sprinkled layer of crushed pecans. Mmmmmmmm so yummy, and not “bad” for you like so many other desserts out there.

  14. jane says

    This is also really good if you use 1 tub of strawberry cream cheese and 1 container of marshmallow fluff. Mix together. Yum yum!

  15. Janine says

    I make this with whipped cream cheese and cool whip instead of marshmallow fluff. I also melt 4 Hershey candy bars and stir that into it as well. It turns out almost like a chocolate mousse. Up in an earlier post, I read someone wanting to try it with the chocolate cream cheese. That sounds MUCH easier than melting the chocolate!

  16. Scott Burkey says

    Really no need for the powered sugar….we have been eating this for years and loving every bite.

  17. Sandra says

    We’ve always made this with just marshmallow cream, whipped cream cheese and the juice from half a lemon. Perfect!

  18. says

    My mom used to make this all of the time growing up, and it’s still a fave!! She left out the powdered sugar, and it’s still simply delicious. It’s almost embarrassing when reveal the ingredients to guests!! She would serve it out of carved out pineapple. YUM!

  19. Pamela Arnold says

    This recipe has been in my family forever and we also make it with just cream cheese and marshmallow fluff! I can’t imagine adding powdered sugar to it! I remember when I was little Mother used to tint it w/ food coloring to match the colors of what ever shower she was making it for.

  20. Nicole says

    I’ve made this dip for years and years but I use an 8oz cool whip in place of the powdered sugar. Adds the sweetness without a ton of sugar. My kids love it too!

  21. Sandy says

    I’ve made a similar recipe for many years, using 2 (8 oz.) pkgs. cream cheese, softened
    1 (13 oz.) jar Marshmallow creme
    2 tsp. frozen orange juice concentrate
    Pineapple juice to taste
    Ground ginger to taste
    Always a huge hit! The pineapple juice and ginger make it really special!

  22. Cheri says

    The recipe we’ve always used is w/o the powdered sugar, but add 1/3 cup cream of coconut,(found in the drink mixes section at the grocery store). Even a double batch is never enough for a get together!

  23. Linda says

    I have made this for years without the sugar. The addition I have is lemon zest. Brings out the flavors of the fruits you are dipping. Also can add a small amount of brown sugar (especially good with apples)

  24. valorie says

    I make this without the powdered sugar, and add a small can of crushed pineapple. It’s amazing!!!

  25. says

    How funny! I have my fruit dip recipe (the same) that I pinned and coined it as the best ever too. :) Love this recipe, have been using it for 14 years and eating it for who knows how long. It is the perfect pairing for fruit….or just on a spoon. 😉 Cheers for great minds thinking alike!

  26. Denise says

    I use this as a filling for crepes and top with fresh sliced strawberries….can you say ‘heavenly” ????

  27. Emmy says

    I make a similar dip, but leave out the powdered sugar and I use strawberry cream cheese instead of regular cream cheese. People LOVE it!

  28. Vee says

    I have tried this dip before but not using the powdered sugar. I have done it with the cream cheese and marshmallow cream only. I also use the dip to make pie fillings for graham crusts by using the flavored cream um. They are rich but so good. When I have to give the pies to others, I cut the richness by adding cool whip. The next time I do this recipe, I will try it with the powdered sugar!

  29. Sandra says

    Instead of powdered sugar, I use a squeeze of fresh lemon to make it have a little bit of a tart flavor. This is a fantastic dip.

  30. Sherry says

    I leave out the powdered sugar and add a tsp or two of coconut extract and a few drops of red food coloring to make a delicious and stunning pink fruit dip.

  31. Kim says

    I added blue food coloring to this and served with fish grahams for a vacation bible school treat for over 200 children and they loved it. Went with our “ocean” theme.

  32. Denise says

    At our house we make it with just strawberry cream cheese and fluff, but we use it as a dip for fruit as well as pita chips. The dip combined with the pita chips tastes like Captain Crunch Crunch Berries. So yummy! :)

  33. Tracy says

    I have always made this, but never heard of it with the sugar. A cup of sugar is mega amounts and with the marshmellow cream I don’t think you will need the sugar. It is so yummy with peaches, bananas & strawberries, but you can use any fruit. It’s heaven!!

  34. Kaylee says

    I used 3/4 cup powdered sugar and 1/4 cup powdered lemonade mix. It was an idea I got from a tastefully simple dip. I think next time a 1/2 cup of lemonade mix will give it a stronger taste.

  35. Rachel says

    Healther alternative:

    8 oz fat free sour cream
    2 tbsp honey
    1/8 tsp cinnamon
    * honey & cinnamon to taste

  36. Hilary says

    Love this dip! I never make it with powdered sugar, but I do occasionally add in some cocoa powder. It’s delicious!

  37. Jessika says

    OK – I have to admit, this is awesome. I substituted with pineapple orange juice concentrate. AMAZING! Thank you for the great recipe. I will be using this again!

  38. Marsha says

    I’ve been making this for years but with only the first 2 ingredients, cream cheese and marshmallow fluff. The powdered sugar in my opinion, isn’t necessary. I think it would be too sweet. Try it!

  39. Misty says

    I have made this for years–omitting the powdered sugar, and adding a small can of crushed pineapple. I’ve even used the cheesecake flavored cream cheese and used it as a “frosting” for a pineapple cake. I call it “Hawaiian Dream” cake! :)

  40. Archana says

    Hey…this sounds interesting. But i dont have access to marshmallow cream, so could you suggest an alternative?

  41. Lauren Hall says

    this is simply fabulous!! So easy too! I added a bit of vanilla and like a hint of lemon extract and it was terribly addicting :)

  42. Marsha Snell says

    I love it because it is so easy! I have never added powdered sugar, but I do add can of creme of coconut.

  43. Shell says

    Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe! I made it today, and added some of my homemade vanilla to it! It tastes amazing. Every time I come into the kitchen I have to dip a grape or strawberry in it!

  44. Shelly says

    I have had this dip at work many times and it is so awesome. It is VERY VERY VERY GOOD!!!! I take it to every party and never any left. I will have to try the strawberry cream cheese.
