Spring has finally sprung, and it brings with it a desire for fresh fruits and veggies.
My boys love when we have fresh berries, kiwi, pineapple, and other fruits for breakfast. So, while Dan made waffles Sunday morning, I dug out the kabob sticks, fresh fruit, and the Philadelphia Cream Cheese Spread I'd picked up at Walmart during my grocery run.
What better way to enjoy breakfast than with wholesome, nutritious fruit kabobs and a creamy yet very chunky fruit dip made out of Philly Cream Cheese Flavored Spreads?
Below you'll find a printable recipe for the chunky fruit dip. And if you love these fruit kabobs, you may also enjoy this yummy marshmallow fruit salad.
Using Philadelphia Flavored Cream Cheese Spreads to Make a Chunky Fruit Dip
I made the dip by combining an 8 oz. tub of Blueberry Cream Cheese and an 8 oz. tub of Strawberry Cream Cheese. Then I added in fresh fruit, including chopped strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries, along with a teensy amount of powdered sugar to give just a slight bit of sweetness to the dip.
The dip made the perfect side to the fruit kabobs and was so creamy, chunky delicious. As I was eating the dip, I could almost imagine using the flavored cream cheese to make a frosting for cupcakes…. something to think about.
Of course, Philadelphia Cream Cheese Spreads also come in other flavors, as well. So, the possibilities for creamy treats are endless.
With flavors like Chive Onion, Garden Vegetable, and Jalapeno, you can make more savory treats, as well. Yum!
Making the Fruit Kabobs
Back to fruit, though. As for the accompanying kabobs, they were super easy to make. The most work was washing and prepping the fruit.
You can use any type of fruit you want; we used strawberries, kiwi, bananas, blackberries, pineapple, and blueberries.
There's really no rhyme or reason to putting the fruit on; the bigger the chunks the better, though.
Once the kabobs are put together, you're ready to serve alongside the fruit dip made with Philadelphia Soft Cream Cheese Spreads. Enjoy!
