To make Paula Deen's French cream fruit dip, soften an 8-ounce block of cream cheese and whip it with a cup of powdered sugar until it forms peaks. Combine the cream cheese with a cup of Cool Whip, the juice of one lemon, and the lemon zest. Blend in pineapple juice a little bit at a time until the mixture reaches the desired consistency. Serve this dip with fruit such as pineapple, grapes, oranges, cantaloupe and honeydew. It also goes well with strawberries, blueberries and kiwi.
For the Kraft orange fruit dip, whisk together a cup of plain, non-fat yogurt, 1/4 cup of sugar, 1/4 cup of orange juice and a tablespoon of orange zest. When mixed, add 2 cups of thawed Cool Whip and refrigerate the dip for three hours. Kraft suggests serving this dip with strawberries and other cut fresh fruits. You can substitute Cool Whip Lite for the regular Cool Whip. User reviews suggest substituting Extra Creamy Cool Whip or using vanilla yogurt instead of plain yogurt.Learn more about Fruit
