I got this recipe from my mother. It's great with about any type of fruit. Strawberries, bananas, apples and grapes are the best.

I decided on the spur of the moment as I sliced an apple that I would like a dip to go with it. I found this one. The 4 ingredients were things that I always have on hand and it was oh so delicious and easy to make! We loved it! It was NOT sour and NOT runny. However if you are one who likes it thicker chilling it thickens it up a good bit. We like it both ways. I had some left over and the next day I added a couple tablespoons of peanut butter to it and that was yummy also and made it thicker. I will use this one again and again. Thanks for sharing!

Very good!Very sweet! Best to not use any type of melon. It thickens a bit if it is chilled. Overall I would definately make it again and use with apples as a quick snack. Read More

This was a great recipe....as long as you are not watching your calories! Instead of using vanilla I bought a bottle of Disaronno amaretto and that's what put it over the top! Read More
