SUMMER FRUIT DIP

Mmm! Don't you just LOVE it when fresh fruit is in season?! Wow! This is one of my favorite Summertime desserts. Cantalope, chunk pineapple, strawberries, red grapes and blueberries. Then I serve it with the most delicious dip / topping. It's so yummy, you'll want to eat the topping with a spoon! The best part is, you can make the topping relatively sugar free and fat free.

FRUIT DIP

1 ½ C. Cold milk
1 pkg. (3.4 oz) instant French vanilla pudding (can use sugar free, if you'd like)
1 cup (8oz) Cherry vanilla yogurt
1 (8 oz) Cool Whip (can use fat free if you'd like)

In mixing bowl, combine milk & pudding mix. Mix well. Let stand 2 - 3 minutes. Add yogurt, mix well. Fold in cool whip.
Mix in several drops of red food coloring to make pink. Be sure to mix well to get pudding up from bottom. Refrigerate. Best served w/ a fruit mix of Strawberries, Cantaloupe, Pineapple, Grapes and Blueberries.

This fruit dip, we will most certainly try. We both love fruit and with this dip being light if we like that makes it perfect. Thanks, connie

I have a similar recipe that uses 1 Lt. 8oz cool whip, one (one serving size) Strawberry fruit on the bottom yogurt, as well as a pkg of Strawberry Jello. You just mix all together and enjoy! :) We love to dip bananas, strawberries and grapes in it! :) I actually could eat it alone! :) And I suppose if you use the light/sugar free ingredients it wouldn't be all that bad for you either! :)

Mmm! That sounds light and refreshing too Jessica. I'll have to try it sometime.
