Easy Fruit Dip Is The Epitome of Quick Sweets To Make In A Hurry
While I love baking and making desserts completely from scratch, there are occasions when something really simple works. Fresh fruit seems to always be a welcome sight and desserts like my Punch Bowl Fruit Salad Trifle and Fruit Bowl Sundae are usually met with oohs and aahs. Here in North Carolina we're fortunate to be able to enjoy fresh fruit year-round but, I know this varies according to region. This dip recipe will complement any variety so use the best in season fruit and it will work great.
Tips And Tricks To Serve Fresh Fruit In An Appealing Way
If you're serving fresh fruit outdoors, it's a good idea to keep it chilled. To do so, consider filling a deep metal pan or basin with ice and arrange fruit on top in attractive containers. You can also prep pieces of watermelon in advance then arrange it rind side down in ice. It's not only attractive but, practical, too. Consider packing a pretty variety of fruit in clear disposable cups for a handheld option and portion control, too.
Other Fresh Fruit Desserts To Enjoy
A fun dessert kids of all ages love is Fresh Fruit Pizza like this one from Favorite Family Recipes and these Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries from The Food Charlatan. Also, the colors in my Berry Trifle with White Chocolate Cream makes it perfect for Patriotic celebrations.
