This is a simple fruit dip that is exceptionally delicious!
Servings: 10 people
For Fruit Skewers
- Bite size pieces of cantaloupe pineapple and strawberries
For Fruit Dip
- 1 block of cream cheese – at room temp
- 1 cup of powdered sugar
- 1 cup of whipping cream
- 1 lemon - zest and juice
- 1/8 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/8 tsp almond extract
- Pinch of salt
- Pineapple juice
For the skewers - Slide the pieces of cut fruit onto the 8” skewers in an alternating pattern and set aside. (do this right before you plan to serve – fruit starts to look ugly after it has been cut and is sitting for a while). (The dip, however, you can make the day before and it keeps beautifully overnight in the fridge).
In a stand mixer bowl (or in a large kitchen bowl in which you can easily use a hand mixer), mix together the softened cream cheese and the powdered sugar and a medium speed (watch out for flying powdered sugar when you turn the mixer on – start at a slower speed and then speed up).
Add in the whipping cream and whip together until soft peaks form. Add the zest and juice of one lemon and mix well. Add both extracts and salt. Mix. Add in pineapple juice a small amount at the time until your desired consistency is achieved.
PRO TIP: If you need to save this fruit dip for a few hours or overnight, add 3 Tbs of sour cream to the whipped cream mixture and mix well, this prevents it from slumping.
- Cut the fruit into even size pieces.
- If you plan to grill the fruit, put like fruits on the same skewer together.
- Put about 4-5 pieces on a skewer together and allow room at one end for holding it.
