Best Ever Fruit Dip Recipe
Did you all have a wonderful Memorial Day? We sure did. The weather was amazing! We threw a neighborhood potluck BBQ. Everyone brought their own meat and a side dish to share. We provided drinks and treats. I made Peanut Butter Truffle Brownies, and they were quickly devoured.
But today I am sharing another fabulous recipe. I tried this fruit dip at a neighbor’s house a few years ago. She told me that they make it every time their family gets together for the annual reunion at Lake Powell. Eventually they just started calling it Lake Powell Dip.
We love it so much we call it “the best ever fruit dip”. I’ve tried several fruit dips over the years, but this one is my favorite!
I adore it and make it whenever I get the chance. It does make a large batch, so I usually make it for parties, showers, or potlucks.
It is great with strawberries, bananas, apples, grapes, and just about anything. Heck, I would eat it plain right out of the bowl! But I try not to. 😉
There is an extra step to this fruit dip recipe, but I promise it’s worth it. You make a simple syrup, and it makes the fruit dip so rich and creamy. Rum extract is what adds the phenomenal flavor, so don’t leave it out.

How to make my fruit dip recipe:
- butter (I use salted butter.)
- evaporated milk
- rum extract
- cream cheese (You can use either full fat or light cream cheese. I actually prefer light because it’s softer and makes a creamier dip.)
- marshmallow cream
- Cool Whip
Bring butter, sugar, and milk to a boil in a medium saucepan and boil for 2 minutes. Stir in flavorings and let cool.
Beat cream cheese till fluffy; add milk mixture and marshmallow creme. Beat till smooth. Fold in Cool Whip. Serve with fresh fruit.
This fruit dip is so stinkin’ yummy!
