This easy two ingredient Lemon Cream Fruit Dip is a delicious and fresh dessert to serve at any meal. It’s also a great recipe for parties and picnics.
Fresh fruit doesn’t last very long in our house. It seems like whenever I buy a few boxes of fruit, they just magically disappear. Yay for fruit being magically delicious, right? Most days I love that our kids can’t get enough of fresh fruit. Well, most days anyway.
There have a been a few times when I bought fruit to make things like this lemon cream berry pie, and there wasn’t enough fruit left in the fridge to cover the top like I planned. But, hey, I made it work.
A few weeks ago I made a batch of this dip as a topping for these homemade strawberry waffles. It was so good that I was literally eating it by the spoonfuls. Fast forward to the other day, and I was still dreaming of this dip because it was that good.
Lucky for me I still had the two ingredients that are needed to make more of this lemon cream fruit dip. Yup, you read that right. You are only two ingredients away from a bowl of creamy lemon perfection! Heavy whipping cream and lemon curd make the creamiest and most delicious dip you can imagine!
I knew if I bought the berries too early the berry monsters in our house would attack, so I had to plan this dip very strategically.
1. Buy the berries late at night.
2. Hide the berries in the back of the fridge, so no one snags them for breakfast.
3. Make the dip and fruit skewers while the kiddos are at school.
4. Take pics and eat my fill.
5. Have the leftovers out for an after school snack along with some mini muffins.
If you wanted to make a batch of this dip even faster, you could substitute 2 cups of Cool Whip in place of the whipping cream. It has taken me a little while, but I have found that homemade whipped cream is actually better in some recipes. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not giving up my containers of the fluffy white stuff. No way! I still have some in my fridge and freezer because I do puffy heart love the stuff.
Whipping cream just gives a different taste and texture to some things. This dip is one of them. It has a light creamy texture without being too sweet. Trust me…you will be eating it by the spoonfuls. Ok, maybe that’s just me.
Since the dip isn’t overly sweet, it is the perfect compliment to fresh berries. Today I decided to use little skewers with blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries because I just love the colors together. I also love that the little berries work better on short skewers. Aren’t they just the cutest?
Feel free to use any berry combo that you love. You could even add little mini marshmallows to these skewers to give it a fun patriotic look for summer picnics. Yes, I’m dreaming of summer over here. Yesterday it was 75 degrees here, and I was loving it!
The next time I buy fruit I am looking forward to trying a few other dip combos. This Strawberry Fluff Fruit Dip is so pretty, pink, and fluffy. I love it. And of course, caramel gets me every time, so this Salted Caramel Fruit Dip is a must try for sure. Yum! And I just saw this Pineapple Nilla Dip and am so intrigued by the cookie and pineapple combo that I need a bowl of that one too! Bring on the fruit because I’m a gonna be dippin!
