Mother’s Day is one of my favorite holidays of the year. Our wedding anniversary, Christmas, and my birthday are all within three weeks of each other so it’s pretty hard to celebrate them well and individually. Cue Mother’s Day. It’s like all those other holidays done right in May. I love it!
My family spoiled me this year, as always. Thomas made me egg, ham, and cheese breakfast sandwiches in the morning and then we had a family cook-out for dinner after church. Thomas also promised to do dishes for year (and then he gave me a case of paper plates and a case of paper cups LOL). And this being given to a woman who rarely buys such things; it was a welcome gift.
The family party that evening was a lot of fun and we ate what we always do: dutch oven, baked beans, and pasta salad. We got a little crazy and had a fresh fruit platter. My mother-in-law asked me to make a fruit dip and so I made this one. I don’t know when or where I learned how to make this super easy fruit dip recipe but it’s one I had to share. It only has three ingredients and comes together in a flash. Oh course I only had a bit of left-over fruit dip to take a picture of on Monday, but perfect picture or not, you need this fruit dip recipe in your life.
- 8 ounce cream cheese (reduced fat works well), softened
- 1 small container Marshmallow Fluff
- 1 small container Cool Whip or 2 cups fresh whipped cream
- In a medium bowl combine the cream cheese and marshmallow fluff until smooth. Fold in the cool while or whipped cream. Serve cold with fresh fruit.
- Store extras in an airtight container in the fridge.
See! Wasn’t that easy? I love how fluffy the texture is and it’s just the right amount of sweet. It’s not so sweet that it competes with the fruit, but it adds just what a sour green grapes needs. I hope you find a reason to make this soon!
Thanks so reading.
