A creamy, low calorie, light-but-yummy Fruit Dip

(of which I never took a picture.  You’ll just have to trust me on this one!)

I’m not usually one to go for the “low calorie” or “low fat” food choices.  But this year James and I are trying to get in better shape so I’m learning to substitute a few rich foods for lighter and/or healthier options.  One of my favorite spring foods is that rich cream cheese and marshmallow cream mixed fruit dip.  I could literally eat it by itself, with or without a spoon!  Well… the other day, I learned how to make a lighter version and it was great.  Then I added something to it, and it even better. I took it to serve at a wedding shower, and everyone agreed that it was delicious.   Then… I switched my added something and it was beyond yummy!  So of course, I had to pass it along to you!

Original Light Fruit Dip – delicious by itself as a creamy light treat, and especially tasty on Granny Smith apples and strawberries.

1 8oz tub of Fat Free whipped topping
2 sleeves of sugar free lemonade singles – the kind that you mix in a water bottle
Mix together and refrigerate.

Light Fruit Dip with extra creaminess – even better than above.

1 8oz tub of Fat Free whipped topping
2 sleeves of sugar free lemonade singles – the kind that you mix in a water bottle
1 small container of light and low fat vanilla yogurt (we like the Kroger brand)

Mix together and refrigerate.

The best ever Light Fruit Dip with extra creaminess

  • 1 8oz tub of Fat Free whipped topping
  • 2 sleeves of sugar free lemonade singles – the kind that you mix in a water bottle
  • 1 small container of light and low fat LEMON yogurt (we like the Kroger brand)

Mix together and refrigerate.  Or keep it in the freezer and thaw a bit as needed.  It’s my new favorite treat.  If you can enjoy the “non-so-clean-eating-fat-and-sugar-substitutes”… I bet you’ll love it too. 🙂
{And… If you are doing the Weight Watcher’s Simply Filling plan… A snack of this dip and fruit makes a 0 point plate!  Or if you are counting points, the dip is a whopping 2 points per the whole carton!}

  1. Your recipe sounds great! I love healthy recipes like this.

  2. I have REALLY not been doing well with my eating and have not at ALL done any exercise. I did really well to start the year but then CELEBRATED my birthday A LOT. And am back off course and heavier than ever. Seriously considering WW — AGAIN. Need to learn more about their new system. 🙂 This recipe looks SO good. Always needing snack options in my house.

    • Kim, this would really satisfy that need for sweets. I’m being choosy on my fat free & sugar free options & am making sure that I’m only using them as extras … Not staples in our diets. You would like the new WW Simply Filling plan. It has been a good way for our family to learn some healthy options. Love you, girl. 🙂
