Red, White & Blue Cheesecake Dip

My country, ’tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing….

Arguably my favorite holiday, since a young child, has been the 4th of July!  I love the comradery of being American with thy fellow neighbor, I love the food and the smell of a lit charcoal grill and I still light up with the sound and sight of popping fire crackers and works!

Let’s also talk about the potluck’s, given everyone I’ve ever met celebrates this holiday outdoors, there is always a picnic of sorts to be had!  This “no-bake” cheesecake dip is the perfect dessert to bring with you to your 4th celebration.  It takes just minutes to prepare, can chill in a cooler if needed and will be gone as fast as it took to make!  Enjoy!

The Starting Lineup

  • 2 (8oz) blocks cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 8oz tub Cool Whip, slightly thawed
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice, fresh
  • 1 cup hulled and halved strawberries
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • Graham crackers and vanilla wafers for dipping

*You can use low-fat cream cheese and whipped topping.  Fat-free is not recommended.

*Can be made with other fruits, color-coordinated for other celebrations or be “New York style” plain!

______________________________________________________________________________________________

Beat the softened cream cheese and powdered sugar together till smooth.  Add in the Cool Whip, vanilla extract and lemon juice; whip till just combined.  Gently fold in fresh fruit; cover and refrigerate for 45-60 minutes.
