Key Lime Fruit Dip

This weekend I made a huge fruit salad to take to an afternoon tea my friend Ann threw.  I made a lot more than I needed to bring, so I kept some at home for the week.  Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and grapes...so yummy!  I like eating fruit with yogurt some evenings, but decided to whip up a fruit dip on Monday to change things up a little bit.  Most fruit dips are so packed with calories it totally undoes the fact that you're eating fruit.  Cream cheese... Marshmallow Fluff...frozen lemonade...chocolate...sugar...sounds delicious, but is crazy high in calories!

What I came up with is much lower in calories, and still delicious - a Key Lime Fruit Dip!  The entire recipe is 270 calories, but you shouldn't eat the whole thing.  (Even though you'll want to.)  Share with 4 friends, and it's just 68 per serving!


1 cup Yogurt (Yoplait Lite 'n Fit)
1/2 cup Light Cool Whip
1/4 cup Light Cream Cheese
Zest of one lime
Squeeze of lime juice


Combine first three ingredients in a bowl and cream together until smooth.

Mix in lime zest, then give the lime a squeeze into the mixture.  Add more or less of the lime juice to your taste!

While you're here...wanna see some pictures from the tea?  I thought you might.  :)  The table was beautiful and food was fantastic!  We decided this may be the summer of tea parties - sounds like fun, doesn't it?

Ann and the table!
Allyn got up to get some water, and Amelia hopped right up into her chair - she wanted to have tea too!

Happy Day!


  1. Looks delicious! I pinned it to Pinterest to try it later!

  2. This tea party looks like so much fun! And so delicious! Thanks for stopping by to check-in - I am alive and safe and sound! And back to blogging after student teaching was taking over my life and time! :)

    1. Thanks! It was such a fun afternoon. I know how crazy teaching can get - husband's been in student/teacher mode for a while now. Glad you had a good time doing it!

  3. Great pics from the party! Thanks for taking and posting!!

  4. Sounds great Lauren and I LOVE the pics of the tea party!

  5. Hi Lauren. Pretty party!! What fun!
    A quick recipe question: Key lime fruit dip: Would I give a quick squeeze from half a lime...or juice the whole thing?
    Thanks. Cindy Cutlip

    1. I did a squeeze from 1/2 the lime. Just squeeze a little and taste, then add more til it's perfect! I probably squeezed 1/4-1/2 the lime. It's best after it's been refrigerated for a while!

  6. I love just about key lime anything, so I'll defintely make this tasty looking treat. The tea looks super cute! I love the lady like hats.
