Creamy-Tangy Fruit Dip

This fruit dip is absolutely addictive. My sister-in-law makes it for us on occasion, and it works great as either an appetizer, dessert, or summer afternoon snack. I was so excited that she agreed to let me blog it when she made it for Mother's Day this weekend! There was a good bit of impatience and teasing aimed in my general direction as I snapped these photos - the whole family loves this stuff - but I think you will agree, dear readers, that it was worth it.

You will not believe how tasty this dip is. Plus, you know me, friends, and you KNOW how I love an *unexpected ingredient* - check out what makes this recipe so special! Good ol' fashioned Tang!

Creamy-Tangy Fruit Dip

1 8-ounce package of cream cheese, softened
1 7-ounce jar of marshmallow cream
1 1/2 teaspoons Tang orange drink mix
Strawberries, raspberries, pineapple, whatever assortment of fruit you like

Blend the cream cheese, the marshmallow cream, and the tang until completely combined. Serve with fresh fruit and toothpicks!

I make the fluff-cream cheese fruit dip all the time and it is delicious, but I bet the tang is a great addition!
