Mmm… Monday #9: Fruit Dip

This special feeling towards fruit, its glory and abundance, is I would say universal…. We respond to strawberry fields or cherry orchards with a delight that a cabbage patch or even an elegant vegetable garden cannot provoke.

So I was begged to provide the recipe for this fruit dip. This amazing ambrosia of a dip that my Grandma makes. I’m giving you fair warning: this stuff is addictive. And is not pleasant to a woman’s hips or a man’s gut. But it is so delectable that you really couldn’t care less. And you will give yourself permission because you are eating it with fruit, which is, after all, very healthy. Don’t worry, I’ll let you keep your fantasy… just don’t ruin it for me, either!

Grandma’s Fruit Dip (Ambrosia)


Are you ready for this? Because it’s a long list. Better get a piece of paper and a pen.

  • One 8oz package of cream cheese
  • One 15 or so oz tub of marshmallow cream (fluff)
  • Fruit of your choice (strawberries are best in my opinion, but apples, bananas, etc are all amazing)

Seriously, that’s it. You just blend them together with a hand mixer or on a very low setting with a stand mixer. And no, I don’t have photos because my hips can’t take it so I haven’t made it lately.

I’m ducking and running before you try it. Because you are going to curse the day you read this… and love every minute of it.
