We had a fun, but exhausting Easter weekend. Sometimes the holidays feel like a whirlwind. I do my best to savor the moments without being overwhelmed in commitments.

We celebrated Easter morning making homemade donuts and hunting eggs before going to my family’s Easter gathering for lunch.

This effortless dip is always a hit whenever I serve it and it’s so simple to make. I like to serve a sweet appetizer, especially during the summer and you can customize your fruit platter with whatever is in season. Grapes, melon, oranges, pineapples, berries and apples all work well.

Even displaying this appetizer is effortless. I donated my chip and dip platters a couple years ago to free space. Now I use any beautiful plate or platter paired with a standard glass or bowl.

It’s the easiest way to serve up a beautiful appetizer, with little effort! Think of all the other tasty treats you could make with all your extra time! Like, one of my refreshing cocktails for example!

5 Minute Simple Fruit Dip

I decided to bring mascarpone cream fruit dip and strawberries because it doubles as an appetizer and dessert. Even better, it takes just 5 minutes, giving me plenty of time to enjoy the holiday.

Another reason I love bringing mascarpone cream fruit dip is that it travels well and displays beautifully without effort. By throwing some lids and the dip and strawberries, you’ll never have to worry if your dish is actually going to make it out of the car in one piece!

Mascarpone Fruit Dip Ingredients

  • Heavy Cream – Heavy cream has a high fat content and makes this dip wonderfully rich. When you beat it, it traps air to make this dip wonderfully light and fluffy.
  • Mascarpone Cheese – An Italian cream cheese that has a slight sourness to it. It helps make the dip super creamy.
  • Powdered Sugar – Also known as confectioner’s sugar. This fine sugar combines well with the other ingredients so your dip is silky smooth.

How to Make Mascarpone Cream Dip

  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat heavy cream until soft peaks form.
  2. Blend in mascarpone cream.
  3. Blend in powdered sugar to taste.

Tips

  1. This is a super simple recipe but, there’s one important thing to keep in mind. If you over whip the cream it will curdle and fall apart. This will cause you to have to start all over. So make sure to keep an eye on the cream, and check it often to see if peaks are forming. Soft peaks will be when you pull the beater out and it stands up but falls back just a little.
  2. It’s quickest and easiest to make this fruit dip in a stand mixer, but you can do it by hand, it will just take a little longer!
  3. Make sure that all of the ingredients are well combined and the dip is silky smooth.

Can You Make Fruit Dip Ahead Of Time?

This dip is a perfect make ahead appetizer. Once you’ve made it, transfer it to an airtight container or cover the bowl with plastic wrap and it will keep in the fridge for up to a week.
