Strawberry Fruit Dressing and Dip

10 servings

The weather is warming up nicely, and when it’s warm outside, I tend to eat more fruit because it’s so refreshing. And when you serve fruit with a dressing or dip, it makes a great warm-weather snack or dessert! This Strawberry Fruit Dressing and Dip is big on strawberry flavor and really good served with strawberries or a mix of fresh fruit chunks—pineapples, sliced bananas, apple wedges…whatever fruit you like!

I call this recipe a dressing and a dip because it’s thin enough to use as a creamy dressing, drizzled over your fruit, but you can also dip your fruit in it, if you don’t mind the thinner consistency. I think it’s best when you make it a day ahead and refrigerate it—it gets a little creamier the next day and thickens a little more. If you prefer it even thicker, you could add in an additional 2 to 4 ounces of cream cheese.

  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 (8-ounce) package softened cream cheese, regular or light (to make mixture thicker, add an additional 2 to 4 ounces of cream cheese)
  • 1 cup strawberries, cut into chunks
  • 1 cup strawberry jam, preserves, or fruit spread

Add the cottage cheese, softened cream cheese, chunks of strawberries, and strawberry jam together in a blender or food processor and blend well (the mixture is on the thick side initially, so you may have to help stir it along with a long-handled spoon several times if using a blender).
Keep fruit dip refrigerated until ready to serve—it’s best if you can make it the evening ahead and refrigerate it overnight. You can serve the dip in a small bowl with a large platter of fruit or serve the fruit and dip together in individual small bowls, cups, or on plates, with the dip drizzled over the fruit.

    How do you think this would freeze? I want to make a lot of it, because we eat this a lot. I want to make a bunch of batches.
