Earlier this week, I actually went shopping inside our local grocery store instead of doing curbside pickup. I’ve definitely popped into the store here and there to pickup a couple of random items, but I haven’t done a complete in-store shop in what seems like forever.

I spent way to much time browsing the aisles to check out all of the new items. When I came upon the produce section, I loaded my cart with way more fresh fruit than we needed, but I couldn’t resist because everything looked so good!

Once I came home and washed and prepped everything, I decided to whip up this Orange Fruit Dip to serve up with all of the gorgeous berries, peaches, nectarines, pineapple and oranges that I picked up

WHAT IS FRUIT DIP?

If you missed my Cream Cheese Fruit Dip, you might have missed my summer obsession with fruit dips. 

You might have seen little tubs of fruit dip in the produce section of your grocery store. They usually come in a few flavor options and are usually cream cheese or yogurt based.

These dips are great for dunking your favorite fresh fruits, cubes of Cream Cheese Pound Cake, pieces of Whipping Cream Cake, or even cookies or homemade graham crackers. They’re a big hit at parties or even for a chill movie night.

And those store-bought fruit dips are fine, but this stuff is so easy to make at home and it tastes so much better! 

This time, I decided to bring a creamsicle flavor to the party by infusing my original cream cheese fruit dip with orange zest and juice.

ORANGE FRUIT DIP INGREDIENTS

You only need 5 simple ingredients to make a basic fruit dip:

  • Room temperature cream cheese
  • Powdered sugar
  • Vanilla extract
  • Marshmallow creme
  • Thawed Cool Whip

To make this Orange Fruit Dip taste like a creamsicle, I added:

  • Orange zest
  • Orange juice

That’s it! That’s all you need to make this super simple but super flavorful dip.

HOW TO MAKE THIS EASY FRUIT DIP

Make sure your cream cheese is at room temperature before you get started. If you forget to set it out ahead of time, check out my tips for how to soften cream cheese.  

Beat the cream cheese on medium speed with an electric mixer for about 3 minutes to get it nice and creamy and fluffy. Beat in the powdered sugar and vanilla and beat for an additional minute.

Use a rubber spatula to fold in the marshmallow creme, followed by the Cool Whip, orange zest and orange juice. 

Once everything is thoroughly mixed, cover and refrigerate the dip for at least 2 hours before serving it.

Serve with your favorite sweet dippables (or even some pretzels!) and enjoy the last of summer before it’s time for Pumpkin Dip

I would like to make this to take on a trip to Big Ben next week. Can this be done? How could I store it? Would it be ok stored in an ice chest?

In the orange fruit dip, can I leave out the marshmallow cream. Two in my family can’t eat it, allergic doctor tested.

I put the Marshmelow creme or Fluff in the microwave in defrost for 1 minute. This makes it easier to whip the creme chesse and marshmellow together and comes out much more creamier.

When I made this my cream cheese became like cottage cheese? What did I do wrong? I waited till it was soft?! Sounds delicious just wished it had turned out! Thanks

Sue- Hello. I've been making this dip for years and have never had this issue. My first thought was that the cream cheese wasn't at room temperature, but since you said it was, I am kind of clueless. Sorry I am not more of a help. -Jamie

When I made this, it turned out really thick, it tasted amazing, but i thought it was supposed to be more of a yogurt consistency, did I do something wrong?

Lisa- We like ours a little on the thicker side. You can always thin it out by adding in a bit more orange juice. Have a great day. -Jamie
