If you need a great game day appetizer, my piña colada fruit dip will fit the bill. It’s lighter in flavor and great with different berries and fruit.
If you know anything about me, you will know that I love fruit and fruit dips. This piña Colada fruit dip tastes just like you are on a tropical island sipping that iconic drink.
If there are ever two flavors that pair beautifully together that is pineapple and coconut. There is just something about these two flavors that will make you feel like you are on a beach somewhere with the sun on your face and your toes in the sand. No? Just me? Oh well.
But seriously — this dip is so stinking easy to make. I whipped up this yummy dip in less than 5 minutes. It would be the perfect appetizer, snack, or even dessert.
My favorite fruit to eat these with are in season strawberries. They just really bring out the flavor of the coconut and the pineapple.
This time of the year after Christmas has come and gone, I really start to miss all things summer. Luckily so far winter has been really mild here in Kentucky with only one small snowfall that was gone the same day it fell. Today it is in the 50s, so it put me in the mood to share this fun recipe with you.
I am so ready for Spring and Summer again, aren’t you?
This fruit dip combines those great piña colada flavors of coconut and pineapple, along with cream cheese and cool whip for a perfect fruit dip.
I bring out all the fruits for this dip — strawberries, apples, bananas, kiwis, oranges, you name it. And it would also be great with graham crackers, pound cake, or pretzels too.
This dip takes only a few minutes to make and will save well in the refrigerator. Make sure you make this for your next big event whether it is for a gameday party or just girls getting together. It makes a lot and is perfect to share!
Now, I’m off to go make a Julia Child recipe from one of my favorite Christmas gifts this year and remake and photograph my delicious Coca-Cola Cake.
- 8 ounces cream cheese (softened)
- 8 ounces cool whip (softened)
- 1/2 cup cream of coconut (make sure to shake the can really well!)
- 1 14 ounce can of crushed pineapple with juice
- Beat your cream cheese until smooth.
- Add in your cool whip, cream of coconut and can of crushed pineapple and stir everything together.
- Chill in your fridge for about an hour to thicken a little before serving.
- Serve with fresh fruit
Cream of Coconut comes in cans and can be found in grocery stores near the drink mixers. You can sometimes find it on the baking aisle as well near the condensed milk and evaporated milk.
I hope you enjoy this delicious piña colada dip! Now someone bring me an umbrella drink 🙂
