Perfect to serve with a selection of fruit, a light dip that I serve this dip with fruit (melons and strawberries) and coffee on a hot summers morning.


  1. Beat cream cheese and sugar together until well combined and smooth.
  2. Blend in lemon juice and vanilla essence.
  3. Spoon into a serving dish.
  4. Refrigerate until needed.
  5. Serve with any fruit you choose.

I could think of nothing better to put on a summer ripe strawberry than this vanilla fruit dip! It was so easy to make. I halved the recipe (only 2 of us),and used non-fat cream cheese. It came together in less than 5 minutes using my hand held immersion blender. I will definately be making this one again!

Made this for the Holidays and just realized I never rated it. Easy to put together, very tasty-especially after sitting for a bit giving the flavors time to mix, and everyone liked it. Will be making again for sure. Thanks for posting!!

Absolutely delicious! From now on this dish will be on my holiday and party tables. Can't wait to make it for my grandchildren -- they will love it with fresh fruit. Thanks for the post. Made for the AUS/NZ Make My Recipe tag, October, 2011.
