speaking of strawberries…

20 Jun

I went to a pretty fantastic brunch a week or two ago.  The food was beyond amazing.  One of my favorite bites was something that I’ve been dying to share with you.  Have you ever wanted to have a quick and easy trick (dish) up your sleeve?  Not literally, silly.  Of course you don’t want to walk around with a plate tucked into that summer tank top.  You’d look stupid.  That wouldn’t even make sense on Gaga.  Seriously.  Haven’t you wanted to have something that you could throw together at the last-minute.  Haven’t you wanted to be a magician with food?  Of course you have.  What’s more?  Of course I’m here to tell you a life changing little something that will transform your personal curb appeal.

In a word?  Fruit Dip.

Fine.  So that’s two words.  Whatever.  It’s life changing.


I have a hard time with fruit because my inner 5-year-old says things like oranges look like baby fingers when they’re in pieces and when I chew them it feels like I have a mouth full of skin.  Alright.  So I’m sharing too much about my possibly eccentric personality.  I’ve got issues.  What I’m trying to tell you is that fruit dip tastes good.  You might eat a baby finger just to get some.  I’m not kidding.  My favorite thing to eat it with is strawberries, but you can use it on just about anything.  Trust me when I say you’re going to want to eat it on everything.


1 package cream cheese (8oz)

1 small jar of marshmallow fluff (7.5 oz)



Throw your room temperature package of cream cheese into a stand mixer, add the jar of marshmallow fluff.  Mix until it’s creamy, beautiful and smooth.


Easy, right?  Crazy easy.  Fine.  So I said that I was hell-bent on getting corn syrup out of our lives.  I’m making an exception.  Besides, if this will get you to eat more fruit, it’s worth it.  Slice up some strawberries, melon, grapes, whatever fruit you have around and watch your fruit and this dip disappear.  You’ll be the most popular person on your block.  I promise.
