Creamy Fruit Dip

This creamy and delicious fruit dip doesn't get any easier - you can mix it up in a about a minute using only 3 simple ingredients that you probably already have on hand.

I like to see the little specks of vanilla bean seeds in my fruit dip so I used vanilla bean paste, but you can substitute pure vanilla extract or the seeds of 1/2 a vanilla bean. Serve with any fruit you like - apples, bananas, pears, peaches, berries, melons... the sky is the limit.

Creamy Fruit Dip
Makes enough dip for 4-6 apples

1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
(substitute 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract or the seeds from half of a vanilla bean)

Mix well and serve with your choice of fruit - for the smoothest dip, mix with a whisk.
Enjoy!

  11. Now that's a great snack for the kids for school! They are going to enjoy this and so am I.Thanks for sharing. Glad you liked the artichokes. Was happy myself when I heard they are full of antioxidants because I don't like the blueberries and raspberries so much and I was happy to hear that the artichoke was even higher in antioxidants.

  18. A tween and 3 teens. Actually, to be completely accurate, the latest birthday changed everything... I now have 1 young adult, 2 teens, and a tween. Can't forget about hubby... he's practically a teen - at least he eats like one. :)

  21. This dip looks so yummy for this hot summer. I haven't seen vanilla bean paste at the store, Can I use regular vanilla?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Yep, you sure can. Use an equal amount of pure vanilla extract.

  23. Mmmmm. I love fruit dip. I make another really simple one: Mix one block of room temp cream cheese with one container of Marshmallow Fluff. That's it. Seriously easy and soooo good.
