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 so 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!!
