Easy Fruit Dip

Okay So I had to get un-tired/un-lazy for about 10 minutes. I washed some strawberries and grapes that I need to take to MOMS Group in the morning and decided that it would be nice to have some Fruit Dip to go along with it... So I started searching for a recipe, and unfortunately I do not have Marshmallow Cream, Yogurt, Jello but I do have cream cheese.. So I set the Cream Cheese Out so it could soften, and started thinking...... a couple minutes later after searching through the cabinets and refrigerator I pulled out Heavy Whipping Cream, some Powdered Sugar, and Vanilla Extract! So Here Is My, very basic using what I have, Recipe:

1 - 8 oz. Pkg. of Cream Cheese Softened
1 Cup of Heavy Whipping Cream
1/3 Cup of Powdered Sugar (I am guessing on this, I really just added a few spoon fulls)
1/2 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract

Beat Cream Cheese and Heavy Whipping Cream together (I did this until smooth and when I thought it looked fluffy enough it didn't take long at all with the kitchen aid mixer but with a regular hand held it could take a few minutes)
Then Add powdered sugar and Vanilla Extract.... Mix this for another minute or so.. and YUMMY!!
It is sort of the consistency of Whipped Cream but with a sweater and cream cheesier taste!!!

  1. This ended up being a hit with MOMS Group and at home as well, I didn't get to stay for MOMS b/c Justus is sick and had croup (had to take him ot doctor) but Tonya said everyone seemed to like it, Dustin and the kids ate the rest of it... It is all gone! It was so easy to make I know i will be making it agian and again! Just remember this is not your traditional "thick" fruit dip, it is lighter and fluffier!
