- 4 ounces cream cheese (half of an 8
oz block) or 1/2 cup Yogurt Cheese
- 3 to 4 tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- Assorted fruit, cut into pieces
Soften up the cream cheese or yogurt
cheese in a summer time kitchen on the
counter, or in the microwave for a few
seconds. Measure the milk into the cream
cheese. I use 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons)
because I like it a little on the thinner
side. Use 3 tablespoons if you like your dip
thicker. Add the vanilla and powdered sugar.
Beat everything together until it is smooth.
Electric beaters do this well, but a whisk
works pretty well too. Now the dip is done.
Serve it in a bowl surrounded by seasonal
fruit. Apples should be cut from the core
into wedges, oranges should be peeled and
sectioned, grapes and strawberries should be
well washed. Bananas can be cut into chunks,
spears or slices. Canned pineapple rings are
pretty good for dipping too. If you are
being fancy, you can arrange everything
artistically, but I seldom do.
You eat this by grabbing a piece of fruit
and dipping it into the cream cheese sauce.
Then you eat it, and smile decadently.
Children and adults love this stuff, double
the recipe if desired, and keep any
leftovers in the fridge.
