Whip up this easy and tasty Fruit Dip in about 5 minutes with only 5 ingredients you might already have on hand!
I love a good fruit dip! And I’ll be honest with you, while it’s great for dipping fruit in, with a tasty dip like this, I like to eat it with just a spoon! Who’s with me?
Everyone loves a good fruit dip! They are perfect for parties, potlucks, you name it. Need a quick dish to bring to a party? Cut up some fruit and whip up this dip? Need a quick after school snack for the kiddos? Whip up this dip with some fruit!
With summer (almost) upon us, it’s time to be equipped with some tasty eats, treats and snacks to make anytime. I have a list of some of my favorite go-to eats that I can whip up anytime. No thinking. No stressing. I keep as much as I can of the ingredients on hand, and when I need it, I usually have it. Some of the items change seasonally, and I try to keep the shelf stable pantry items on hand, or things I can keep in the freezer. It’s a go-to list, so I don’t have to think. Sometimes my brain at mass capacity so if I can just hit my list, there’s no thinking, and searching. My list includes snacks, pasta salads, and things that we often have on hand. Some of my items includes parfaits (my kids eat them daily), caprese salad (great for summer cookout), basil pesto (you always need pesto!), desserts like cheesecake, trifles, frozen pound cake to top with berries and whipped cream, or a box of pound cake (Tastefully Simple has a delicious pound cake), and other items I can easily whip up to take to a picnic. You get the idea. Since I started doing it, it has saved my sanity just a little when it comes to ideas for what to make.
When it comes to dinner, this past weekend I stocked my freezer with some easy peasy freezer meals to have on hand to just pop in the Crock Pot, Instant Pot or even grill. If you want to check out what I made, head over to my Facebook page where I made 10, yes 10 freezer meals in 1 Hour thanks 5 Dinners in 1 Hour! 5 Dinners in 1 Hour has been a lifesaver for me when it comes to dinner! I have most of my meals ready to go for the week, and now that I have 10 meals in the freezer I have no excuses to get dinner on the table!
This easy peasy 5 minute Fruit Dip is another one of those go-to things I like to make and is one of those items on my summer list of what to make. I always have whipped topping in the freezer, a packet of pudding mix, yogurt because my kids eat it all the time, I always have a block of cream cheese on hand and fruit too so I can whip this tasty dip up in no time!
