“Oh my, this is delightful! I had this at a cocktail party last night. The hostess served it with whole strawberries but any mix of fruits will do beautifully. If you have a vanilla bean lying around, remove the seeds and add it to the dip. Cook time is chilling time. Make ahead and enjoy.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • French Cream
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened at room temperature
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 14 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 12 cup pineapple juice, no amount was given just use enough to thin to desired consistency
  • 1 vanilla bean, seeds (optional)


  1. Soften cream cheese and then whip with powdered sugar.
  2. Whip cream and sugar together until it forms soft peaks.
  3. Combine beaten cream cheese, whipped cream, lemon juice and zest.
  4. Continue to beat, SLOWLY add just enough pineapple juice to achieve desired consistency. I prefer it to be the consistency of a thick Greek yogurt.
  5. Chill until party time!
  6. Serve with fresh fruit tray or fruit salad.
