Pina Colada Dip for Fruit

Here is one of my favorite fruit dips. Serve this dip with fresh fruits. Cut up apples, strawberries, pineapple, grapes, banana, kiwi, orange slices... plus I used all light to make it less calories!
You can choose to make this alcoholic or non alcoholic. Mine has a touch of coconut rum in it.


This also makes a great filling for any cake your making!




Really simple and takes no take at all to make this great dip...Refreshing and addicting.

  4. I'll bet this is delicious. I love pina coladas, but they're so fattening, I don't indulge often. This with fruit would be an acceptable indulgence. Yummy.

  10. I can definitely see this as a filling for a cake. And as I think about it, I can see other uses...I bet this is a great pie filling with the sliced fruit on top.
