4-Ingredient Cream Cheese Fruit Dip and Spread

This is my recipe for fruit dip… and it’s awesome and delicious fruit dip… that’s amazing as a spread on french toast!  Brown sugar brings out the richness of the cream cheese and yogurt adds a bit of tang, while vanilla extract and a pinch of salt bring everything together.  With only 4 ingredients you get easy and delicious entertaining!

  • Serve as a dip with fresh fruit and cinnamon crisps
  • Spread on french toast and top with sugared strawberries
  • Fill pre-baked cupcakes for a “cheesecake” center  
  • Use as a filling for red velvet whoopie pies

The possibilities are endless. 🙂

Thanks for joining me! Good company always shortens the journey so I'm glad you're here. My name is Tara Benson and I'm 33 years young. I'm an energetic wife and mother with a wild imagination and a bold sense of humor. Consider me 100% right brained. I love music, art, interior design, gardening, baking, cooking, creating and hobby farming. I'm married to the best husband, Jason. It's safe to say we're opposites in many ways, but get along GREAT. We have two very intelligent and loving children, Owen (10) and Belle (4). I come from a huge family with three brothers, one sister and about a thousand others in the extended version. I'm also a mother to a mixed herd of animals (13 and counting...). I work in the mortgage industry from my home office. In 2015, my husband and I bought a 13 acre farm on the eastern plains of Colorado. We decided to live out our dreams and make the best of our lives for ourselves and our children. We want to teach them that hard work and creativity will always payoff at the end of the day. So welcome! Stick around a while and make yourself at home. -Tara
