Orange Creamsicle Fruit Dip

My husband and I celebrated 10 years of marriage last week on a cruise to the Bahamas. We had a really good time but the only thing that put a damper on things is that I have a sinus infection and haven’t been able to smell or taste ANYTHING for over a week and a half. Which for a person who loves food as much as I do, is pretty much misery. But I continued to eat ice cream, chocolate, and all those naughty foods because I knew they were supposed to taste good.

On our anniversary we had a port stop in Key West and I was dying to taste all of the local food. Miraculously, as a special anniversary gift for the day, my sinuses opened up and I was able to spend the day just how I wanted…on a food crawl down Duval Street.

The eating was good….cookies as big as my head, key lime pie on a stick dipped in chocolate, fudge shops every 20 feet, and a stop for lunch at Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville.

I finally made it to the doctor today and am on some antibiotics so hopefully my taste is back soon. But yesterday when I had another brief moment of tasting, I made this dip. This dip is a refreshing and light orange flavored dip that pairs perfectly with fresh cut fruit. It almost tastes like an Orange Julius in dip form.

  16. I’ve been following your blog for a while now and have tried several of your recipes (and have loved all of them). However, I JUST saw your picture and I’m trying to figure out how I know you! Like we’ve actually met before! Did you and your hubby live in Mesa before moving to FL? Feel free to email me at jasonanddiana(at)gmail(dot)com so maybe we can figure it out… My name is Diana by the way. :o) In any case (even if I’m having a moment of being crazy and we in fact do NOT know each other – I still enjoy your blog! :o) Thanks for sharing!

  18. Amazing recipe and this looks so tempting!! Suddenly I am craving for these.

  19. I made this dip a couple weeks ago for a party and it was a huge hit! It definitely is going to be a summer party staple for me!

  20. Would it be weird to use cheesecake pudding? I live out in the boondocks and need to make a dip and that’s all that I have..

  21. @Kaelynn,
    I think cheesecake pudding would be the bomb!

  22. I made this today and really enjoyed it. It had a slightly bitter taste from the orange juice concentrate, it tasted like Orange Julius to me. B/c it was a little bitter the small children that I served it to did not like it but the adults did.
