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.
