  • Optional: sweetener of your choice

Before starting the recipe, make sure to soften the cream cheese to room temperature. This will ensure that it blends smoothly and creates a creamy texture in the dip.

Beat the cream cheese until it is fluffy with an electric mixer or stand mixer in a mixing bowl. 

To achieve a smooth and fluffy consistency, it’s recommended to use an electric mixer to combine the cream cheese and Cool Whip. This will help incorporate air and create a lighter texture.

If mixing by hand, give a firm whip.

Fold in the whipped topping.

Taste the creamy dip and adjust the sweetness by adding honey if desired.

Transfer the fruit dip to a serving bowl and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.

Serve with your favorite crackers or fruit of your choice
