I have a friend named Shannon who is just about perfect. She is for sure the perfect hostess, and ever since I have known her (which has been forever) she could host a perfect party with her eyes closed. It was at one of her many gatherings a million years ago that I first had marshmallow fluff cream cheese fruit dip. I had no idea what I was eating, I just knew I could not stop eating it. This is saying a lot for me because I will always choose a veggie plate over a fruit plate, every single time. I like fruit just fine, but I like dip more, and veggie trays normally involve dip. So give me a dip for my fruit and its a game changer. I have not eaten this dip in years or even thought about it since going vegan. That is until we were trying to plan snacks for our daughters princess themed third birthday party, and I need a “grey stuff” from Beauty and the Beast. Suddenly I remembered the marshmallow cream cheese dip, and realized that I could use sweet aquafaba whip in place of marshmallow flufff! It worked y’all, and I actually had to refill the bowl of dip during the party. Also, you can dye it any color with a few drops of food color, in case you ever need some “grey stuff, its delicious, don’t believe me, ask the dishes. And thanks again Shannon for being an amazing friend all these years, for hosting the best parties, and for making this dip a gazillion times so I could stuff my face with all the fruits!
2 cups Sweet Aquafaba Whip
8 oz container of vegan cream cheese, we used Kite Hill
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Make Sweet Aquafaba Whip according to instructions. You will have a good bit leftover, but could use it to make meringues, or store in the fridge for later to use as whip cream.
Beat cream cheese with an electric hand mixer or briskly stir it with a fork to soften it up. Using a plastic spatula, fold in the 2 cups of sweet aquafaba whip and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract, just until everything is well incorporated.
Serve with fruit, vegan graham crackers or cookies.
I prefer to serve immediately just because the aquafaba will break down some once stored in the fridge. This dip does hold up better than the whip does on its own, and I have eaten the leftover dip the next day without it being weird or liquidly.
