Well, I found my new go-to party/potluck/picnic recipe – 2-Ingredient Lemon Whip Fruit Dip! Could this stuff BE any springier? (Said in my best Chanandler Bong voice, of course.)
Speaking of, it’s weird watching reruns of Friends and realizing the characters near the end of the series are the same age I am now. I remember watching that show in high school and thinking they were all so…OLD. Excuse me while I curl up in a corner with a big bowl of whippy lemon fruit dip and eat my feelings.
Ok I’m back.
You guys, I am so pumped to share this sweet/tart/totally addicting fruit dip recipe with you today. I almost just posted it on Instagram because it’s laughably easy and I didn’t want to wait a second longer than I had to to share it, but the recipe deserved to be saved for the blog.
If you like lemon, if you like cheesecake, if you like fruit dip – if you like any of the three – you’ve got to make this dip. Fruit on it’s own is nature’s candy, but when dunked into this mousse-like dip, it’s next level. I’m taking a big bowl if it to my parent’s house for Easter this year, as we always have crudite or a fruit salad to nibble on before dinner, but it’d be great for countless other events. Baby and bridal showers, book clubs, office potlucks, Mom’s groups, summer pool parties, making it through a Monday, heck just as a fun surprise for your kids! Lincoln went bonkers for this fruit dip!
So, channel your inner Monica Geller (ie, your inner chef,) and let’s whip this up!
Like I said, this recipe could not be easier. All you have to do is fold 1 cup lemon curd with 9oz SoDelicious CoCoWhip. That’s it! You can use store bought lemon curd or make your own. I made this lemon curd and it was ultra tart and tangy – super good. (FYI – I used vegan butter in place of regular butter in that recipe!) I recommend this lemon curd if you need a completely vegan option.
Even if you don’t need to eat dairy-free, I’m still recommending you use coconut whipped topping for this recipe. It gives the dip an extra oomph of yummy flavor and I really like the texture too. Very whippy and moussy – almost cheesecake like. The ingredient list in this particular brand is great too.
Scoop the dip into a bowl then serve with the fruit of your choice. This dip can be made two or even three days ahead of time and, speaking from experience, there isn’t a whole lot it doesn’t taste good on. Fruit of course, but also cookies, a spoon, your finger…you get the idea! Enjoy, enjoy!

Lemon Whip Fruit Dip
2-Ingredient Lemon Whip Fruit Dip is light and mousse-like in texture, and made with just 2 ingredients. This gluten-free, dairy-free dip is a must-try!

- Assorted fruit
- Fold lemon curd and cocowhip together then refrigerate until ready to serve. Can be made 1 or 2 days ahead of time.
- You can use any lemon curd you like, but homemade tastes best! I like The Food Charlatan's recipe for The Best Lemon Curd.
