Coconut Cream Fruit Dip – This super easy 3-ingredient fruit dip is creamy and delicious paired with any fruit! A must for summer parties and potlucks, baby and bridal showers, or anytime!
I first tried this coconut cream fruit dip at a recipe swap one of my friends hosted. I was blown away by how simple and refreshing it is paired with the fruit and I’ve been addicted to it ever since!
It’s so easy to make with only three ingredients: cream of coconut, cream cheese, and whipped topping. If you’ve never heard of cream of coconut it is NOT simply coconut cream. It’s presweetened like sweetened condensed milk. Cream of coconut is used in piña coladas and is really good! My favorite brands are Coco Real or Coco Lopez.
This recipe makes a lot of coconut cream fruit dip! It’s great for parties of any kind and I can guarantee your friends will ask you for the recipe. Just print them a copy, or I’d love for you to send them to my blog!

Coconut Cream Fruit Dip
- 1 (8oz) pkg cream cheese
- 1 (15oz) can cream of coconut (Not coconut milk or coconut cream! Find this in the aisle with the margarita mix & other mixers.)
- 1 (8oz) tub whipped topping (Cool Whip)
- In a large bowl with an electric hand mixer, beat the cream cheese with the cream of coconut until all lumps are gone.
- Add the whipped topping and mix again.
- Serve with fruit or graham crackers. Keep refrigerated.
-Some readers have found beating the cream cheese first, then adding the cream of coconut helps to keep the lumps out. You can also try softening the cream cheese or using a stand mixer with the whisk attachment.
-What is Cream of Coconut? It is coconut cream that has been presweetened, much like sweetened condensed milk. Find it in the aisle with the alcoholic mixers. Look for the Coco Lopez or Coco Real brands.
-Not a fan of Cool Whip? Go ahead and whisk 1 cup of heavy whipping cream with ¼ cup of powdered sugar until stiff peaks form (easiest to do in a stand mixer).
