My Mom used to buy strawberry fruit dip from a local store. My kids and I would sit at the table and gobble it all up. We wouldn’t even want dinner after because we were full of fruit and dip.
Although the dip was really good, I know it wasn’t good for me. It was very sticky, which means there was a lot of sugar in it.
I had a craving for that fruit dip, but I wanted to lighten it up. I used strawberry sugar free Jello mix to get the strawberry flavor.
I love the smell of Jello when I cut the bag one. I think it’s because we used to have Jello as a snack a lot when I was a kid. That was back in the day when we had to make Jello and they didn’t have it in the little containers already made.
I used one teaspoon of the Jello powder and I mixed it with 2 teaspoons of very hot water. I wanted to make sure the Jello wasn’t powdery in the dip.
I mixed the Jello and water with 2 tablespoons of marshmallow creme. I stirred it really well to make sure it wasn’t grainy from the Jello.
Once that was done I added 2 cups of fat-free Cool Whip. I added it 1/2 cup at a time, stirring after each 1/2 cup.
The recipe makes a little over two cups. It is 1 Freestyle point per serving, which is a little more than 2 tablespoons.
You can use any kind of fruit you want with this strawberry dip. I love using strawberries. I also cut up some apples and grapes.
Pineapple is another favorite of mine to use with strawberry dip. I don’t know why it tastes so good together, but it does. And I love it!!
