Summer Fruit Dip

Jeremy Padgett
Make this fruit dip your go-to recipe for summer parties.

Husband, dad and radio show host, and creator of “Crocktober” recipes on Mix100, Jeremy Padgett, shares a family recipe perfect for summer.

Shhhh don’t tell my wife, but instead of posting one of my typical family blog posts this month I’m going to post her top secret fruit dip recipe.  I LOVE this fruit dip! It’s perfect for summer get-togethers, BBQ’s and, if your kiddos have summer birthdays, it’s a great way to sneak a little fruit into them. Typically we like serving chopped up strawberries and grapes with the dip but in most cases I usually just scoop it out with my fingers. YUM!

Hope you enjoy!
