INGREDIENTS FOR THE CREAMY DIP
You will need the following ingredients listed below to make this great recipe (the exact measurements are in the printable recipe card below):
- Cool Whip – I used the light version. You could use whipped cream but it just won’t hold up sitting out the same way cool whip does.
- Greek Yogurt – you could also use strawberry Greek yogurt or vanilla Greek yogurt. Not that the flavored kinds have some sugar added to them already so you might need a bit less jello powder.
- Strawberry Jello Powder – No Sugar added.
- Optional add ins – marshmallow fluff or marshmallow creme, lemon juice, softened cream cheese, strawberry puree, etc.
HOW TO MAKE STRAWBERRY FRUIT DIP
Start by combining cool whip and yogurt in a medium bowl, then sprinkle in about 1/2 teaspoon of jello powder, taste and adjust the sweetness by adding more jello powder. Everybody’s taste may be different so just add little jello at a time.
Chill in refrigerator for an hour before serving with fresh fruit.
Can you believe how simple this delicious dip is?
I like to serve this with fresh strawberries for dipping. Is there anything more delicious and refreshing on a hot summer day than yogurt dipped strawberries?
Grapes or apple slices would obviously also be a great choice.
As fresh strawberries are not really a must for this recipe, you can make this strawberry dip all year long. Why not make it for Valentine’s Day? Honestly, I would rather have this Cool Whip Fruit Dip over a Valentine’s Day Cupcake any day.
MAKE IT A STRAWBERRY CHEESECAKE DIP
Turn this strawberry dip into a strawberry cheesecake dip by adding some cream cheese. Make sure your cream cheese is at room temperature for easy blending with a hand mixer.
You could also add in some vanilla extract for that extra bit of cheesecake flavor and serve it sprinkled with crushed gluten-free graham crackers.
HOW TO STORE LEFTOVERS?
The leftover fruit dip can be stored in an airtight container for up to 5 days in the fridge.
WHAT DO I SERVE WITH THE YOGURT FRUIT DIP?
- Fresh Strawberries: Since the dip has a strawberry flavor, pairing it with fresh strawberries is a natural choice. The combination of the creamy dip and juicy strawberries creates a harmonious and refreshing combination.
- Pineapple Chunks: The tangy sweetness of pineapple complements the creamy cool whip dip. Cut fresh pineapple into bite-sized chunks for easy dipping.
- Grapes: Both green and red grapes work well with the fruit dip. They provide a burst of juiciness and balance the creaminess of the dip with their natural sweetness.
- Sliced Bananas: The smooth and mellow flavor of sliced bananas pairs nicely with the sweet and creamy strawberry dip. The contrast in textures adds a delightful element to the experience.
- Apple Slices: Crisp apple slices, such as Granny Smith or Honeycrisp, offer a satisfying crunch that complements the smoothness of the dip. The combination of tartness from the apple and the sweet dip creates a delicious contrast.
- Animal Crackers: These pair perfectly with the fruit dip as they provide a crunch to the thick and creamy 3 ingredient fruit dip.
- Vanilla Wafers: Another treat I love to serve with this delicious fruit dip. A little bit of a crunch with the fluffy dip is perfection.
