Orange Fruit Dip

Fruit by itself is so delicious.  Then, you add something creamy, fluffy, sweet, and crazy delicious to destroy any trace of nutritional value and it becomes even better.  I never thought I'd find a fruit dip as good as my mom's, but I think I've found one that is just as amazing.  Thank you to Ourbestbites.com for adding this recipe into your cookbook.  I fluffed this one up the other day for a Labor Day BBQ, and my family could not keep their hands off of it.  I actually caught my brother trying to drink it. Okay, not really, but he did keep saying how amazing it was. 
Orange Fruit Dip
source: Our Best Bites Cookbook (a must-have for any one- yes, you!)

1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
2 t orange zest
3 T fresh orange juice
1/4 t vanilla
pinch salt
1 (7 oz.) jar marshmallow creme

Once the cream cheese is softened, beat it with a mixer, along with the orange zest, orange juice and vanilla.  Once it is smooth, add the marshmallow creme and blend.

Serve with fresh fruit.  The pineapple and strawberries were especially delicious with this dip, but I think that if you dipped pig's feet in this dip, it would turn those little piggies into something marvelous- although I don't recommend that.  :)

  1. Two words for ya, YUM E! A neighbor of mine makes one similar to this with marshmallow cream, cream cheese, and raspberry jam. She uses if for watermelon and it will make you say those two special words as well.
