Summer is here, which means many BBQ’s, family reunions and picnics. In needing a side dish for a family picnic, we decided to make up one of the Little Chefs favorite fruit dips. Our Orange Fruit Dip is so delicious and perfect for picnics on the hot summer days. It is very refreshing, and you can make it up to 2 days ahead of time – which is great when some summer days are all play and no work (including cooking!). This Orange Fruit Dip also is so incredibly easy, the Little Chefs whipped it up in less than 5 minutes!!
The Little Chefs first blended the softened cream cheese till nice and smooth. Then they added in the marshmallow creme, which can seem like a very sticky task. However, we found a trick – if you run your spoon under hot water, then use it to spoon the creme out into the bowl! Very easy and much less of a sticky mess. But it did not stop there – Little Chef B to continue to eat what was left in the container – now he became very sticky! Oh well, at least he enjoyed it! Then they added the powdered sugar, and mixed till combined.
Then they added in the orange zest and some of the juices from the orange. The Little Chefs LOVE to make this recipe because they love to zest and juice the oranges.
We then put it in the fridge for a couple of hours, and then it was ready to eat! This Orange Fruit Dip was sure a crowd pleaser! You can also try out our Yogurt Fruit Dip.
