Cheesy Fruit Dip
Fruit is delicious all on its own, but sometimes its nice to add a little something extra to it. This week I was invited to a baby shower and I brought this delicious fruit dip along with me. The dip has a creamy consistency and adds something special to any fruit tray.
For this dip you will need to following:
4 ounces of cream cheese, room temperature
4 ounces or 1/2 cup of riccota cheese
4 ounces of vanilla yogurt ( any flavor is fine)
1/4 strawberry jam (or another you like)
1/4 teaspoon coconut or vanilla extract
Assorted fruits for dipping
Start by blending softened cream cheese and ricotta cheese in a bowl.
Microwave the jam for 20 to 30 seconds until comes to a thinner consistency. Add this to the cheeses.
Add the coconut extract and blend very well. You can just use vanilla extract here, but I like the unique taste of the coconut.
Chill the dip for a few hours until it's firm and creamy. Serve this with any kind of fruit you like. This recipe makes about 1 1/2 cups of dip total.
