How to Store Fruit Dip

  • Store in an airtight container or in a bowl covered with saran wrap for up to 5 days refrigerated. It’s a great make ahead dip for entertaining!
  • Unfortunately you cannot freeze Cream Cheese Fruit Dip. Cream cheese becomes dry and crumbly frozen because the water separates. It loses that creamy texture we all love and becomes grainy.
