Hi there! My name is Kelly Anthony, and it’s a treat to be featured on The Speckled Palate!

My specialty and all-time favorite cuisine is comfort food, and on my site, you will find comfort food recipes for both the family table and entertaining.

Speaking of entertaining, as we are probably both well aware, this is where The Speckled Palate really shines. So today, I thought I’d bring to you one of my favorite recipes to serve up at brunches, showers and more!

If I have learned anything from years of entertaining, it is this: Us women love our fruit.

So these days, if I’m hosting a gathering geared toward my lady friends, a fruit platter will most certainly make an appearance.

For an extra special touch, I serve this raspberry yogurt fruit dip alongside it. It’s sweet, slightly tart and absolutely perfect for dipping.

The fruit dip features creamy Mascarpone cheese, which is like a toned-down version of cream cheese. The combination of both Mascarpone and cream cheese allow for other flavors to shine.

Why should I try this fruit dip?

Fruit dip is easy to make and comes together in less than five minutes. What makes it even better is it can be made days in advance, making this total perfection when it comes to entertaining.

Fruit dips are made using any number of ingredients, but most are made with a cream cheese base. Some are sweetened with powdered sugar, others call for marshmallow cream. For this recipe, the only sweetener we need comes in the form of raspberry jam.

The yogurt adds a luxurious, creamy texture to the dip. The juice and zest of a lemon add some extra tartness.

Why should the cream cheese be at room temperature?

The cream cheese should absolutely be at room temperature before blending. This will ensure that the cream cheese blends beautifully with the other ingredients. Also, it ensures the dip will be both smooth and creamy.

If the cheese is not at room temperature before mixing, you will likely end up with little curd-like pieces throughout. Definitely not the end of the world, but if you have an eye for aesthetics, keep this in mind.

Ingredients

  • 16 oz. Mascarpone cheese , at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese , at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup raspberry preserves
  • 1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 lemon , zested
  • 1 lemon , juiced

Instructions

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, mix together both the Mascarpone and cream cheese until smooth. If you don't have a stand mixer, use a mixing bowl and a handheld mixer. 



  2. Add the remaining ingredients and mix until smooth once more.

  3. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled through, one to two hours.

Recipe Notes

Please note that the cream cheese should be at room temperature before blending. This will ensure that the cream cheese blends in beautifully with the other ingredients and the dip turns out smooth and creamy.

If the cheese is not at room temperature, you will likely end up with little curd-like pieces all throughout your dip. It's not the end of the world, but if you have an eye for aesthetics, this is something you’ll want to keep in mind in regard to your prep time.
