Fluffy Fruit Dip

There are times in life, I ask myself, WWJD?

WWJD with this fruit tray? I knew we would be having a tray of fruit for my friend Krystal’s bachelorette party/lingerie shower. So I asked myself, WHAT WOULD JAMIE DO? hehehe… My friend Jamie is a great hostess. When some friends & I went over to her place after work one night (the night I brought these meringues), she had fresh fruit with this yummy wonderful dip. We devoured the dip. Because I knew how tasty it was, I knew I needed to make it for Krystal’s party. Sure enough it got devoured there too. Sorry I don’t have an amazing picture that lives up to the tastiness of this dip. I’ll definitely make it again and get a better picture, but I couldn’t wait any longer to share this. It’s so easy to whip up, and can be adapted for different flavors.

Fluffy Fruit Dip

from my friend Jamie

Ingredients:


2/3 container of whipped topping, such as Cool Whip (I used HFCS-free TruWhip, learn more about it at the bottom of the post)
2/3 container marshmallow fluff
about 1/2 a packet of Jello Pudding (the small sized box), any flavor

Directions:

Combine whipped topping and marshmallow fluff. Stir until combined. Add in Jello pudding powder and stir well.

Feel free to use more or less whipped topping, marshmallow fluff, or pudding mix to your taste. I had a relatively small bowl to put it in, so that's why I didn't use the whole container. I used Coconut flavored pudding, because that's what I had on hand, but you could easily customize it to your liking. I know from experience that banana flavor is good, and I could imagine lemon, vanilla, or even cheesecake flavor tasting great as well! You could also easily substitute a sugar-free pudding flavor, and a lite or fat free whipped topping.

**My review of TruWhip: This stuff was awesome! In my opinion, it had MUCH better flavor than Cool Whip does. It has a subtly different sweetness. I DEFINITELY recommend it, especially if you are trying to cut out HFCS wherever you can. I picked mine up at Whole Foods.
