Tia Maria Sour Cream Dip for Fruit

Total Time
Prep 3 mins
Cook 0 mins

I first tried this years ago when a friend passed on the recipe. I whipped the ingredients together until thick and loved the result but later found my friend just stirred hers so her dip was quite liquidy. I actually prefer it whipped but either way guests enjoy it. I have also used Godiva or Mozart Liqueur (chocolate) depending on what I have available. I made this yesterday with Mozart Liqueur for JanS - she requested I submit the recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 300 ml pure sour cream, light will not whip
  • 2 -3 tablespoons brown sugar, to taste
  • 4 tablespoons Tia Maria, to taste


  1. Whip ingredients together until thick.
  2. Serve with fresh fruit cut into reasonable sized chunks for easy dipping.
  3. I like to use rockmelon, pineapple, kiwi fruit, strawberries and then maybe another fruit in season, whatever looks nice arranged in colours.

This is so good, that I had to have the recipe:-) It's simple, and hard to know what's actually in it until you ask! I particularly liked it with the pineapple and kiwi fruit. Thanks Glen, and thanks for a great lunch.

Great flavour! I used 3 tablespoons of brown sugar and 5 of Tia Maria. It was wonderful as a dip (although it did need quite a long time in the fridge to thicken). There was some left over so I folded it through some sliced banana for dessert today. I think it would be great with strawberries on a pavlova too, or maybe folded through some canned pineapple pieces with chopped crystallised ginger! So many possibilities. :-)

Glen, this is a great recipe. I made it with Tia Maria to serve with a Christmas fruit platter. I took your advise and whipped until thick and I think I'd do it again this way as I can't really imagine it as a thin dip. Fresh cherries are amazing dipped in this. Thanks for posting a quick and easy recipe that has been voted a family favourite :)
