Today's recipe comes from Betty Crocker's little booklet "Easy Appetizers." This small cookbook has "over 20 great small bites to get the good times rolling." With fresh strawberries, pinapple and kiwifruit available in the stores, I thought this would be a great recipe for Mother's Day brunch or a Graduation party....or just for fun.
4 oz reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchatel)m, softened
1 cup marshmallow crème
1 container (6 0z) lemon low-fat yogurt
½ cup fresh raspberries
2 tsp chopped fresh mint leaves
15 fresh strawberries, stems removed, cut lengthwise in half
3 kiwifruit, each cut into 10 chunks
30 pieces (2-in) fresh pineapple
In medium bowl, beat cream cheese, marshmallow crème, yogurt and raspberries with electric mixer on high speed until smooth. Fold in mint.
Cover dip and refrigerate at least 2 hours, but no longer than 12 hours. Serve dip with fresh fruits.
