    This is a different take on fruit dip. I’ve always made it with cream cheese and marshmallow fluff. I will have to try it!

    I too looooooooooove cheesecake ….unfortunately, I am not pregnant!! (used to eat the stuff by the bowlful when I was pregnant with my first! she loves cheesecake too!) Unfortunately, she married an Italian (Yay!) that has an allergy to cheese!! (boo hoo!) so I can’t make anything with cheese when she comes over. However, for Easter I made a carrot cake with cream cheese icing very similar to your recipe light cream cheese+icing sugar no cool whip….it was awesome…so just another idea!!! My daughter, son and hubby loved it…the grandkids and son-in-law liked the brownies better (bet it would be even better with the icing!

      My sister and my Mom are both lactose-intolerent and our family has learned a lot of substitutes for dairy based products. Now a days there are vegan cream cheeses that bake and cook up just like regular cream cheese. There are now lactose-free versions of everything from cottage cheese to even Cabot sharp cheddars contain no lactose! I have even made a cream cheese frosting substituting vegan cream cheese for regular and it was delicious!

        Will have to check it out next trip to the grocer…although I don’t think he is lactose intolerant he puffs up like a dough boy which cuts his breathing if he comes close to any kind of cheese. oddly enough he can drink milk, yogurt and ice cream!

    I’ve used this recipe for years as a filling for pies. Make and bake a graham cracker crust, let cool, pour in this cream cheese filling, then top with your favorite fruit. You can use canned pie fillings (cherry is great) or you can make your own glazed strawberries or peaches and pile on top. It’s delicious.

    I cannot have the cool whip. (high fructose allergy). Will real whipped cream work or will it go runny after awhile?

    1. 8.1

      I am not sure if regular will work all you can do is try, just start with half a batch so your wasting all the other ingredients..

    Aweseome easy recipe that really does taste like cheesecake! I folded in some chocolate chips afterward and plan on eating it with my salted caramel pita chips that are a little too dry/plain to eat by themselves.

    I make a fruit dip very similiar to this, using 8 oz of softened cream cheers with a regular size jar of marshmallow cream . Add a splash of vanilla flavoring, if you like. I will try the cool whipped topping!

    Sorry but what is cool whip?

    1. 13.1

      Its similar to whip cream

    This is a great recipe, thanks! I also made a sugar-free version with just less than 1 cup of swerve confectioners style, 8 oz of sugar-free cool whip, dash of lemon juice and dash of vanilla. I am using it as fruit dip and in stuffed strawberries, with a blueberry on top for July 4th. :)

    1. 14.1

      Thanks for the sugar-free option!

  16. 16

    Are you supposed to fold the cool whip in, or just beat it in with the electric mixer?

  17. 17

    I made this recipe and added about 1/3-1/2 cup pumpkin puree, 1/2 cup more powdered sugar and 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice….OH. MY. YUUUMMMMM!!!!!!!!

    I’m making this dip for my daughters baby shower on Saturday. Is it ok to make a day or two ahead?

    1. 19.1

      Yep! Not a problem at all :)

    double the cool whip and add the zest & juice from one lemon for a nice twist, plus not as dense for dipping!

    1. 20.1

      Love the idea of added lemon!
