Red White and Blue Fruit Skewers with Cheesecake Yogurt Dip

I’m not sure what it is about putting fruit on sticks that makes them so appealing, but my youngest daughter’s eyes lit up when she couldn’t wait to eat them.

I wanted a healthy cheesecake flavored dip so I played around with yogurt, cream cheese, vanilla and sugar, and it was exactly was I was looking for. The strawberries tasted wonderful with this dip, it’s a keeper!

Make Ahead

This will feed a large crowd, you can make the dip the night before, assemble it in the morning, and refrigerate until ready to eat.

Variations

  • You can skip the skewers and just serve the fruit in a bowl with the dip.
  • Use a pound cake or gluten-free cake instead.

  1. Outstanding! I especially love the dip which I now make in batches to keep on hand to use with any fruit dish. The dip is just like Marzetti’s Fruit Dip but nowhere near the calories. I even used 1/8 cup of Pyure Organic Stevia in place of the raw sugar to further save some calories,

  2. I love this fruit dip! It really does taste like cheesecake. I didn’t make the skewers, just dipped strawberries. Looking forward to making this with the skewers for Memorial Day.

  3. Could the dip be warmed and served over the Creme Brulee French Toast? That sounds so wonderful and decadent to me šŸ™‚

  4. use the plain if you are used to it. If you need something a little sweeter (and can have the extra carbs) then go for the vanilla. For me I used the plain Greek. I have it on hand already and am used to the flavor. I also used splenda instead of sugar and had no problem with blood sugar spike.

  5. I'm wondering how long this can be kept in the fridge for? I was hoping to make it ahead of time for a party.

  6. I used this as the basis to make cheesecake flavored frozen dessert (by cutting down the cream cheese and yogurt, but adding nonfat evaporated milk). It was great! Thanks!

  7. Just made this for today! It is very yummy! I did add some fresh lemon juice! Can not wait to eat our dessert!

  13. I served just the skewers on Memorial Day as a last minute treat (pulled some whipped topping out of the freezer for those who wanted to dip) and they were a hit! They looked so cute and festive on the table. Thanks!
