I am so excited about this post! I was so excited about this recipe I was even sending texts about it to other dairy intolerant family members. Move over cream cheese dips -this is Dairy Free Fruit Dip!
Earlier this year I was getting our family ready for a mini-Super Bowl Party at our house for just the four of us. My beloved Green Bay Packers weren’t in the game so I was way more interested in the food than the football. In years past I’d made a cream-cheese based fruit dip and strawberries for game days, but decided to experiment a little so Colin could eat our party treats. I mixed up some marshmallow crème, coconut milk vanilla yogurt, a bit of powdered sugar, and vanilla. I whipped it together with hand held mixer and decided it could be even better with a little lemon zest and lemon juice. The result was a delicious fruit dip that everyone in our family loved. My husband he said he preferred it to the old cream cheese based one. The texture of the dip was great and didn’t get runny like my coconut whip cream does after standing a while. I can even see myself using it as a frosting substitute for Colin’s birthday treats.
Do yourself a favor and try this dip!
Here is the yogurt I used but feel free to experiment if you have a dairy free yogurt you like. I’d go with vanilla or plain yogurt. Try adding a little vanilla extract into the recipe if you use plain yogurt.
Dairy Free Fruit Dip
7 0z Marshmallow crème (also known as marshmallow fluff. It comes in a jar)
6 oz. Vanilla flavored coconut yogurt (if you can only get plain -add more sugar and vanilla to the recipe)
2 tablespoons Powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
Zest of half of a small lemon
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Mix all ingredients together with a hand blender or whisk. Serve with fruit for dipping.
