We’re huge fruit eaters at my house.  And while we typically eat it plain, every now and then we like to get wild and crazy and make fruit dip.  I especially enjoy making it at the beginning of the school year, when packing lunches is still exciting and fun to Doodle.  At this point in the school year {i.e., the first full week}, he’s still really involved in choosing what he eats for lunch and likes to help out in the kitchen.

And if sending fruit dip in his lunch box gets him to eat his entire lunch, I’m all for it.

This Strawberry Cheesecake Fruit Dip is soooo easy to make, and is super kid-friendly {it’s adult-friendly, too, judging by the serving I ate after photographing it}.  I just mixed an 8-ounce container of strawberry cream cheese with a tablespoon of cheesecake pudding mix, and then folded in a 7-ounce jar of marshmallow cream.  Easy-peasy.

And since I just send a small dollop in Doodle’s lunch container, I figure the marshmallow cream is offset by the large handful of berries I send along with it.
