Hello! What day of the week is today? It’s Tuesday and that means….it’s time for another crazy adventure into Taste Testing! This time around we are doing things a little bit backwards from the previous times. We will be taste testing a yummy fruit dip and deciding which kind of fruit tastes best with it! Ready? Let’s go!
First the simple fruit dip recipe: 1 – 8 ounce package of cream cheese, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1 teaspoon of vanilla and 1 tablespoon of milk.
Place the ingredients into a medium-sized bowl.
Beat the ingredients together until it is a smooth consistency. I used my small electric hand mixer and that worked great.
Scrape the fruit dip into a small bowl and place it in the center of a large plate. Gather and prepare fresh fruit and place it on the plate, arranged around the bowl of fruit dip. Can you name all 6 of the fruit in this picture?
The correct answer is red apples, kiwi, peaches, bananas, green apple and mandarin oranges. Divide portions onto small individual plates for each person to sample. Give each person their own little mound of fruit dip so no one is “double dipping” and sticking the fork they have eaten off of back in the dip. Ewww!
Do you like the fruit dip? Which fruit do you think goes best with the fruit dip? I think my favorites are the apples and the bananas. 🙂 Don’t forget you can make a chart of what you think of each kind of fruit with some fruit dip. Is it better with dip or better just plain? Have fun!
