Creamy Caramel Fruit Dip

Creamy Caramel Fruit Dip

So we’re eating more fruit and less sugar . . . but we still need to have a bit of fun!  Add this dip to your fresh fruit plate!  This is one of my all-time favorite treats.  I love fruit, but I love fruit dipped in creamy caramel fruit dip even more!  A girl has to have a treat once in a while and this delicious recipe helps to combine both worlds – delicious healthy fresh fruit with a yummy slightly decadent caramel dip.

This is great with reduced-fat cream cheese and reduced-fat sour cream.  You can also use skim milk to cut calories.  I haven’t tried sugar-free pudding mix because I don’t care for the sugar-free mixes.  Let me know if you try it and like it!

1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened,

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

1 cup cold milk

1 package (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix

Assorted fresh fruit

In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and brown sugar until smooth.  Add the sour cream, vanilla, lemon juice, milk and pudding mix, beating well after each ingredient.  Cover and chill for at least 1 hour.  Serve as a dip for fruit.  Makes about 3 1/2 cups – keeps well in the refrigerator for several days.

I would love to hear from you!
