Three Ingredient Lemon Fruit Dip

I’ve probably tried hundreds of fruit dips in my life. And they’ve all been delicious. But this Three Ingredient Lemon Fruit Dip is by far the best I’ve ever had.

And it’s so unbelievably easy! Not only is it good with fresh fruit (blackberries are my favorite), but it’s wonderful with shortbread or sugar cookies too.

Every time I make this dip, someone says, “What is in this? It’s so good!” One guy actually said to me, after I revealed the three simple ingredients, “And also nectar of the Gods, right?”

That’s how good this stuff is!

All you need is some whipping cream, sugar, lemon curd, and about 5 minutes and you’ve got a delicious dessert ready to go. Or, if you prefer, you can make this ahead and refrigerate it for later.

Trust me, once you try this fruit dip, you’ll never make another recipe again! This is also my go-to dessert when I need to serve something gluten free.

I served this dip at a teacher appreciation dinner recently because I think it’s always a good idea to serve fruit at a dessert buffet. Really, you can’t go wrong with this lemony dip, served with some pretty cookies and fresh fruit.

And if you’re looking for a delicious gluten free cookie to serve with this dip, I highly recommend the oatmeal lace cookies from these Berry Oatmeal Cookie Stacks.

If you’re wondering about lemon curd, you’ll usually find it near the pie filling, and in a pinch, lemon pie filling would make a great substitute. I know I’ll never make another fruit dip again!

Be sure to save this Three Ingredient Lemon Fruit Dip recipe to your favorite Pinterest board for later.
