Strawberries with Cheesecake Dip

Strawberry season is always my favorite. On a sunny day, I can walk outside and smell the berries as I pass the field. I sneak into the fields and scavenge the first few red berries from the plants, taking in the first glimpse of the fresh, sweet treasures of summer.

I developed this dip recipe scrounging around the kitchen for something to take to a picnic. The strawberries were a given, and I’d have eaten them all myself even without the dip.

I wanted something to serve them with, and so I created this light, creamy dip as the perfect complement to sweet, succulent strawberries.

Cheesecake Dip

Ingredients

8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
1 3.4 oz. package vanilla pudding mix
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 – 1 cup milk, half & half or heavy cream
4-6 cups (12-16 oz.) whipped topping

Directions

Beat cream cheese until smooth. Add pudding mix and beat until thoroughly incorporated.

Add about 1/4 cup milk or alternative of choice. Beat until smooth, scraping sides as necessary to ensure no lumps remain. Add additional milk or alternative of choice if necessary.

Stir in about 1 cup of whipped topping until thoroughly incorporated, then fold in another 3 cups whipped topping, adding additional milk or alternative or increasing amount of whipped topping until desired consistency is reached.

Serve with fresh berries and enjoy!
