Orange Cream Fruit Dip Recipe

Orange Cream Fruit Dip Recipe

Let’s say we’re at a party. There’s a table. At one end you find rich chocolate cupcakes at the other, you see this creamy fruit dip.

Where am I?  You’ll find me next to the dip. And by next to, I mean completely hoarding the bowl.

I can eat this with a spoon — I barely need the fruit.

With that said, we serve our ultra creamy dip with strawberries, but you could add pineapple, apples, other fruit or even cookies — Shortbread cookies or graham crackers would be amazing.

Ridiculously Easy (and Addictive) Fruit Dip Recipe

Making this fruit dip is almost cheating — it’s so easy.

With a hand mixer (or stand mixer), we beat cream cheese, vanilla extract, orange zest, powdered sugar, orange juice and cream together until creamy. It takes less than 10 minutes and can even be made in advance — just keep in the refrigerator up to 2 days.

The orange zest and juice adds so much flavor and natural sweetness.

I swear this fruit dip tastes just like orange creamsicles — Yum.

    Do you recommend folding the whipped cream rather than mixing?

    • Joanne May 19, 2016, 1:19 pm

      Since we add the cream as a liquid, we use a hand mixer to mix it in. Alternatively, you could whip the cream separately and then fold it into the dip.

    Delicious with ginger snaps!

    Great dip. I omitted the sugar and it was still delicious as the fruit sweetened it.

    Caution: the ingredient list is incorrect. It needs a whole 8 oz package of cream cheese not the half package (4oz) listed. If you make this according to the current directions it will be loose and too “watery” not a creamy dip as pictured.

      Hi Jessica, sorry your dip came out to thin. We’re not quite sure why — 4 ounces works well for us. Hope you enjoyed the dip once you added more cream cheese!

    can i put it in a danish and cook it??

    • Joanne May 16, 2014, 11:34 am

      Hi Flo, we don’t recommend it. If we were going to turn this into a danish filling we’d probably remove the cream and orange juice then add an egg or two so it sets nicely.

    Is powdered sugar the same as icing sugar?

    This is wonderful, just made it tonight for dessert and it works just as well with lactose free cream cheese and lactose free cream which we need for our boys – nothing lost in the taste.

    Is the whipping cream just a garnish? Unless I missed it, the steps never say to add the 1/4 whipping cream…

    • Joanne June 13, 2013, 10:31 am

      No, the cream is added towards the end. -Joanne

    This is delicious. I made it last night to take to a birthday party at work. People devoured it!

  • Karen May 9, 2013, 3:18 pm

    I need to make a fruit dip for about 50 people. What would you suggest I multiply your recipe by? CAN’T WAIT to try it!!!

    • Joanne May 10, 2013, 9:55 am

      Hi there — We would make 6 to 7 servings for 50 people.
