After my first year of college, I had a summer internship with a local university working in food service and catering. I don't remember anything else from that experience (other than the stylish red and blue polo shirts) other than this fruit dip. Three ingredients and it's a winner each time. And now that I'm trying to commit to healthy eating as a part of the 95 days to glory (1 day down, 94 to go) this recipe helps me keep my sweet tooth in check without jumping off the deep end....into a vat of cookie dough, for instance.
1 8oz block of reduced fat cream cheese, room temperature
4 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Combine all three ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat with a hand mixer until smooth. Spoon into a bowl or a hollowed out piece pineapple (or grapefuit, or orange) and dip all those nutrition-packed fruits you love. In moderation of course.
Happy New Year!
