Have you ever experienced the last minute rush to throw something together for a party? Here’s a quick tip and easy recipe that will make it seem you are in complete control! This Last Minute Fruit Dip is always a big crowd pleaser, too!

Fruit Dip
1 (8 oz) container of Cool Whip
1 (6 oz) container of flavored yogurt (Key Lime, Strawberry–whatever is in the fridge)

Mix together and serve with your favorite fruits.

I used to think lemon juice (or the fruit preserve stuff I never remembered to buy) was my only option to keep my apples from turning brown. And the lemon juice is pretty sour.

But you can just dip your bananas and apples in Sprite or 7-Up before arranging on the plate. The citric acid in the pop will take care of the browning, and the mild lemon lime flavor isn’t noticeable. No more puckering when eating an apple!


  1. Thanks for the Sprite tip, I’ll have to try it!

  2. You can also squeeze orange juice over the fruit to kep it from browning. It makes the fruit taste even better.

  3. If you’re going to put some canned pineapple chunks out to serve with the dip, drizzle the pineapple juice over your sliced apples and bananas. It stops the browning as well.

  4. Oh Thanks for that awesome tip, and that dip sounds YUMMY!!

  5. Yummy recipe and great tips from Nikkala and readers!! Thanks everyone! 🙂

  6. Yum!! I’m excited to try the Sprite tip as well. I never liked the lemon juice routine.

  7. Oh my goodness! That sound awesome! I feel like I hit the Jackpot when I found this blog tonight! But I need to make myself stop & go to bed! 🙂

  8. I’m gonna try this dip!

    Another great fruit dip is 1 jar marshmallow fluff and 1 8oz block of cream cheese. I use my electric mixer with a whisk and it turns out oh so smooth and scrumptious!
