Cooking for a crowd isn’t always easy. It’s even more difficult when you’re dealing with dietary restrictions or budget constraints. But I put together a recipe that is easy on your wallet and suitable for your friends who avoid dairy. This vegan cream cheese fruit dip recipe is made with simple, easy-to-find ingredients. It’s a creamy and delicious fruit companion that’s perfect for snacking, entertaining, or even as a light breakfast option. This is also a gluten-free snack recipe, so it doubles up for dietary restrictions!

I used Violife dairy-free cream cheese for this recipe — and there is a Freebate at Walmart right now to make this recipe budget-friendly. They have a classic version that is oh-so-perfect for this dip, but you can also find a strawberry option that would work well, too (and has a pretty pink color). Serve it with your favorite fruits or vegan-friendly cookies. I’ve also tried the original flavor on my favorite everything bagels and it is so creamy, you wouldn’t even realize it’s a dairy-free version.

Let the cream cheese come to room temperature.

First and foremost, let the vegan cream cheese come to room temperature before you begin. This helps it incorporate with the other ingredients more easily and prevents it from being lumpy. If you didn’t let it come completely to room temperature, it’s okay! You’ll just want to utilize your hand mixer for a couple of extra minutes to get rid of the lumps.

Use a hand mixer to beat the ingredients together.

For this recipe, a hand mixer is really helpful if you have one. Use it on low speed to combine everything. You want the dip to be creamy and light, so keep mixing until everything is combined and smooth. This can take up to three full minutes of mixing.

 

Serve the vegan cream cheese fruit dip with your favorite fruit and cookies.

Create a fun fruit board with your favorite berries, apples, and even some vegan graham crackers or cookies. I like using strawberries, blueberries, and Honeycrisp apples at our house, but feel free to get creative with the components and the presentation.
