Serve this Strawberry Cream Cheese Fruit Dip Recipe with fruit kabobs for a side dish that everyone will love. An easy fruit dip with Cool Whip that is a make-ahead recipe for family gatherings or weeknight dinners.
Every once in a while, usually when I’m hungry, I think of a random recipe from my childhood. Something my mom made or perhaps my grandmother. Both were amazing cooks. This Strawberry Cream Cheese Fruit Dip Recipe is very close to one my grandmother made for filling cream puffs. This recipe is simple, quick and has an amazing texture. It sort of melts in your mouth. It’s make-ahead and pairs perfectly with fresh fruit. It would definitely work as for filling cream puffs!
I asked my dad if he remembered the recipe my grandmother used for her cream puff filling, but he did not. Our best guess was strawberries, whipped cream, and sugar. Maybe she added vanilla but we aren’t sure. The recipe I came up with is a little different, but worked perfectly and has just five ingredients.
Strawberry Cream Cheese Fruit Dip Recipe
A fruit dip with Cool Whip!
The cream cheese adds a stabilizing quality and great taste. I briefly considered using real whipped cream but decided on the old stand-by of a fruit dip with Cool Whip. Honestly, I love Cool Whip and if you wanted to cut a few calories you could use Cool Whip Lite.
Serve this Strawberry Fluff Fruit Dip Recipe with fresh fruit, but it can also be used in a variety of other ways.
- As a topping with angel food cake
- As a dip with vanilla wafers (my personal favorite) or graham crackers
- As a filling for an icebox cake. Just make this Strawberry Icebox Cake but substitute this recipe for the Cool Whip.
- As a filling for cream puffs!
