Mariko's Amaretto Fruit Dip

Print Friendly and PDF

Here's a delicious fruit dip from Mariko Shimomura, pictured here with her fiance, James. With a lot of drive and determination, they moved to the Washington, DC area earlier this year, located new jobs and are planning their spring wedding. This recipe is simple to make and tastes wonderful as a dessert fondue with pound cake or angel food cake cut in cubes, strawberries, blackberries, fresh pineapple, bananas or any fresh fruit in season. The Amaretto flavoring is delicious!

1 box of powdered sugar
8 oz softened cream cheese
1/3 cup of Amaretto
Juice from 1 fresh lemon
1 tsp vanilla
4 oz whipping cream

Beat all ingredients together with an electric mixer until smooth, refrigerate for 1-2 hours, serve with fresh fruit and/or pancakes (amazing on strawberries!). The dip tastes even better the second day when the flavors have had time to blend together.
