15 Yummy Fruit Dip Recipes

I like yummy dip and would like to share with you.
Fresh fruit is nice ‘n sweet and yummy enough on its own, but it can also be jazzed up a bit by serving with a cool and creamy dip. These are simple enough to make that they can be enjoyed as a snack, and taste bud pleasing enough that you can serve to crowds when entertaining. They can be made with all kinds of ingredients with most being pretty basic like yogurt, cream cheese, whipped cream, sour cream and even marshmallow fluff…diet busting for sure, but many can be healthified too by using low-fat varieties.
Bonus! many fruit dips do just fine in the refrigerator for several days (so they’re perfect to make ahead when things are busy).
