Cream cheese fruit dips are a lightly sweet and fluffy dip you'll love! These easy fruit dips range from seasonal appetizers to recipes that work year round. I find them highly addictive, so if you ever set out a fruit dip with cream cheese at a party, you might want to make sure I've eaten dinner first if I'm invited!

How do you make cream cheese fruit dip?
- One thing all fruit dip with cream cheese recipes have in common is, you guessed it, the cream cheese. In order to make your dip extra smooth and luscious, ensure your cream cheese is softened, or at room temperature, before mixing.
- You'll want to use a stand mixer or a hand mixer in order to fully incorporate all of your ingredients.
- These are super easy fruit dip ideas because they don't require baking, just a few minutes and often just a handful of ingredients.
- Most fruit dip recipes that use cream cheese are sweetened using sugar, honey, maple syrup, etc. Especially tasty are cream cheese fruit dips with brown sugar. They are also usually thinned out until a desired consistency is reached using ingredients like heavy whipping cream or milk.
- Fruit dips can also be served with cookies or even a salty savory option like pretzels.
- Additional flavors and textures from other ingredients like nuts and dried fruit can be added to any cream cheese fruit dip.

Scrape sides again.
