What is a Fruit Dip?
Fruit dip is a type of snack or dessert that typically consists of some type of creamy side dish that is perfectly paired with sliced fruit for dipping. The cream can range from sweetened condensed milk, to yogurt, to cream cheese, or even whipped cream.
Lots of classic fruit dips tend to be a super sweet yogurt but there are so many other types too!
Like caramel, chocolate, or dip variations based on your favorite desserts. Yum.
What are Dessert Dip Recipes?
Dessert dip recipes are pretty much fruit dips but sometimes are paired with other things to dip like graham crackers or pretzels. Also, they tend to be based on a favorite dessert like cupcakes or s’mores.
But what is great about dessert dips is that they are pretty much all delicious with fruit dipped in them as well. So if you are attempting to make one of these dessert dips a smidge healthier, you can always switch to dipping fruit slices in them.
