Fruit Dip Ingredients
The best thing about this fruit dip recipe, besides how delicious it is of course, is that you only need four ingredients to make it! It’s super easy to whip up on short notice so keep these ingredients on hand for when you need them. Scroll down for the printable recipe card with the ingredient measurements.
- Cream Cheese: We used plain, full-fat cream cheese in this recipe. Cream cheese comes in a block and even when it is softened it is still solid. Beating the cream cheese prior to adding other ingredients changes the texture and allows the other ingredients to easily mix into it without clumps. You can use a low-fat cream cheese if you prefer but keep in mind that it might change the texture or creaminess of the dip.
- Marshmallow Cream: The sweetness and lightness of this fruit dip comes from the mashmallow cream, also known as marshmallow fluff.
- Vanilla Extract: Adding a little vanilla extract brings this fruit dip to the next level.
- Ground Cinnamon: We like to add a small amount of ground cinnamon to this dip for extra flavor. This can be left out or swapped with another warm spice if you prefer.
How To Make Fruit Dip
Beat the softened cream cheese until smooth and creamy. Next, add a jar of marshmallow cream and mix until fully combined. Finally, stir in ground cinnamon and vanilla extract. Scoop the fruit dip in a small bowl and store it in the refrigerator until ready to serve. (Scroll down for the complete printable recipe card.)

What other flavors can I make with this recipe?
The great thing about this recipe is that you can add any flavor you want to it. Try some lemon juice and lemon zest for a lemon fruit dip or orange juice and orange zest for an orange fruit dip. Or try using pumpkin spice instead of ground cinnamon.
