If you want to put your finger right through the screen and take a swipe of this lemon whip fruit dip, I don’t blame you. It tastes just as scrumptious as it looks. All you’ll need to make this yummy recipe is a block of cream cheese, a jar of lemon curd, a pinch of salt, pure Mexican vanilla (or vanilla extract), a tub of refrigerated Cool Whip, and an assortment of fresh fruit. And if you’d like to make your own lemon curd from scratch, it’s very simple to do. You can find my homemade lemon curd recipe here.

So let’s get started. Here’s how to make the best lemon whip fruit dip you’ve ever tasted: In the bowl of a stand mixer blend together the softened block of cream cheese, lemon curd, salt, and vanilla. Whip the mixture until all ingredients are fully combined, it’s creamy smooth, and there are no lumps.

With a spatula, scoop out the contents of a container of Cool Whip that’s already been defrosted in the refrigerator. Gently fold the Cool Whip into the lemony cream cheese mixture until fully incorporated. Don’t over mix with your spatula. Allow the lemon whip fruit dip to retain its light, airy fluffiness.

The type of fruit I’ve chosen today includes sliced Granny Smith apples, Honeycrisp apples, nectarines, raspberries, strawberries, bananas, mandarin oranges, and just a handful of blueberries for garnishing. You can include other fresh fruit like sliced mango, cantaloupe and honeydew melon.

To make things more festive for a holiday brunch, baby shower, bridal shower and other special occasions, string a series of alternating green and purple grapes onto short wooden skewers. Or try another colorful fruit combination on skewers like raspberries and blueberries, or bananas and strawberries. Let your creativity flow! Every time you serve this lemon whip fruit dip, your fruit platter arrangement will look unique – which is wonderful. It’ll just depend on the fruit in season. During spring and summer the fruit is more beautiful and vibrant, and you’ll have more options.
