Allie's Crack Fruit Dip


Since I'm currently working really hard at life vacationing with my family and friends on the East Coast (and clearly not enjoying any of it at all - ha!), I have a special guest for y'all today. Let me introduce you to one of my nearest (not literally, she's in North Carolina) and dearest blog friends, Allie. She really doesn't need much of an introduction, so I'm just going to let her take it away...

HEY CANADA!
No?
Let me start over.

Hello Cause You Gotta Have Faith readers!



I'm Allie and I'm Faith's best friend forever. So naturally, I was forced agreed to guest post for her while she is on vacation. I racked my brain on what to talk about, and then I came up with this idea.

A Healthy Fruit Dip. Or Liquid Crack.
(Sorry about those search terms Faithy and sorry Peter for talking about drugs on Faith's blog)

A few months ago I had a game night to go to. I decided to bring something on the healthier side instead of my usual brownies or chips and dip. I headed to Pinterest in search of something that was really easy. I had never made fruit dip before and in fact, I had no idea what would even go together to make fruit dip. Then I found this pin and knew that even I couldn't mess it up.




All you need to make the best fruit dip in the history of fruit dips and quite possibly the best thing I've ever put in my mouth hole (#twss) are two ingredients. Two.

Get yourself a jar of marshmallow fluff and a 8 oz. block of 1/3 reduced fat cream cheese. I mean you could use regular, but the 1/3 reduced fat part makes me feel like I can eat more of the fruit dip and get away with it, because calories. Logic goes a long way over here.

Let the cream cheese sit out for a while because if it isn't soft, you're gonna have a really hard time doing anything with it. Then get your self a spoon and dump all of that ooey, gooey, marshmallowy sticky goodness into a bowl. Dump the softened cream cheese in there too.

Now you could try and prove something to yourself and use a regular spoon to mix your dip, but after awhile your arm will get tired (#twss x2). Plus a hand mixer makes the dip fluffier and the fluffier the better.

Mix it all up until it's mixed and fluffy. Grab yourself some strawberries (or any other fruit you really love) and throw those babies into a pool of fruit dip and get to going on the best thing you'll ever put in your mouth hole.
Promise.

Now. Go make this dip and come tell me how much you like it. Oh and make sure to tell Faith how much you love me when she FINALLY stops vacationing.

Now I just want fruit dip and I don't have the ingredients and well it's just all around sad over here. But YAY for me being on your blog today.
