Blueberry Lemonade Fruit Dip
Blueberry Lemonade Fruit Dip- the perfect dip for this Spring and Summer. Try it with fruit, crackers, or gingersnap cookies!
This recipe is perfect for Spring and Summer picnics- simple to prepare and it has such a pretty presentation. Those blueberry swirls get me every time! You’ll feel like you’re dipping fruit into a whipped lemon blueberry cheesecake. And can I please convince you try serving it with crisp spicy gingersnap cookies? Biscoff cookies are equally amazing too! What I’m trying to say is… please make this dip!!
Can I confess something to you? Things here might always look pretty (that’s what I try for anyway!) but this very bowl was dumped onto my kitchen floor by my youngest son as he was trying to get to the hard boiled eggs in the refrigerator. This dip originally looked like my very popular Cherry Limeade Dip– beautiful lines of blueberry filling made their way around the bowl, and it was piled high to perfection, waiting for its beauty shot. Well, life isn’t perfect. It’s messy. And sometimes you just have to scrape off the top of the bowl and realize that swirly blueberry dip can be pretty too. Am I right?!
You will be able to sample this recipe at the BlogHer Food Conference in Miami and I’ll be there to serve it from the ADA Mideast booth!! Stop by and say hi; I cannot wait to meet so many of you!
I’m also sharing the recipe for this Blueberry Lemonade Fruit Dip over at the Drink Milk Blog today as part of an ongoing partnership. I’ve worked with the American Dairy Association Mideast many times in the past, and I’m happy to partner with them again. So hop on over to grab the Blueberry Lemonade Fruit Dip recipe.
May is Osteoporosis Awareness and Prevention Month. By enjoying 3 servings of low fat or fat-free milk, yogurt or cheese every day as part of an overall healthy diet, families, especially children and teens in their peak bone-building years, can help reduce the risk of osteoporosis later in life.
About 10 million Americans have osteoporosis, a disease that makes bones become weak and more likely to break, and nearly 34 million have low bone mass, putting them at risk for osteoporosis.
Dairy foods are an excellent source of several essential nutrients that work together to help protect bones, including calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, protein and vitamin D.
Sweet Stabilized Whipped Cream
- 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
- 1 Tablespoon cold water
- 1 Cup cold heavy or whipping cream
- 2-3 Tablespoons powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- In a small bowl sprinkle gelatin over cold water. Let the gelatin “bloom” (absorb the water). Microwave the gelatin for about 30 seconds. Set aside to cool.
- In the bowl of a mixer, beat the cream until it forms soft peaks. (Start on low speed and gradually turn up the speed to high.)
- Gradually add in powdered sugar.
- Add in the cooled gelatin and vanilla. When the cream holds its peaks it is done. Do not over-whip.
