This easy, sweet dip is excellent on a fruit platter. I usually serve this dip at baby showers because it has a lovely pastel pink color. The taste can easily be altered by using your choice of extract flavorings. Also, the dip is thick enough that it can also be used as a tea sandwich filling. This is my own creation.

I substituted it with strawberry extract since the raspberry was twice as much. Turned out nicely. I added more sugar (3/4 c) and more extract (2T) and also added about a tablespoon of vanilla extract. People really liked the dip. In addition to the fruit platter I included angel food cake.

I was disappointed in this recipe because it smelled and tasted too strongly of sour cream. I had high hopes but will try one without the sour cream next time. Thanks for sharing. Read More

Always a hit! I "lightened" it with Lowfat Cream Cheese and Sour Cream with no flavor loss. Read More

This is good - tastes like a very thick raspberry yogurt. My raspberry extract was virtually colorless so I added a handful of frozen raspberries for a pinker color (baby shower was for twin girls so the pinker the better!). The recipe doesn't sound like it makes a lot but you'd be surprised how far 2 cups of fruit dip will go! I served with both red & green grapes strawberries cantaloupe honeydew and pears cut in thin wedges. Read More
