This past weekend we celebrated my baby’s 4th birthday! I guess now that he’s 4 I can’t really call him a baby anymore can I? But like all of us, our babies will always be our babies, so I’ll likely still be calling him my baby even when he turns 50. I really can’t believe he’s 4 already. Sniff.
My little guy had a dinosaur themed party, which I’ll try to share with you later once I get my act together and edit some photos. I kept things really simple (no Pinterest party here), but man, birthday parties are still a lot of work. I love planning little parties for the kids, but I don’t like to go over the top because it just becomes too stressful. Instead I like to focus on simple food and fun that the kids like. And when those 2 hours of party time are over I heave a big ol’ sigh of relief! A house full of kids is a house full of kids. Full of noise! But good noise! :)
So for his party, I just served the old kid favourites: hot dogs, chips, veggies & dip, and a fruit plate with this Strawberry Fluff Fruit Dip.
Strawberry Fluff Fruit Dip
Wow, was this dip a hit! Like I’m talking lick-the-bowl-clean kind of hit. Forget the fruit, pass me a shovel. It’s SO good. Creamy. Sweet. Soft. and Fluffy.
And did I mention easy. You are just 3 ingredients and 5 minutes away from the most delicious fruit dip you’ve ever had. And a little word of advice? Have A LOT of strawberries on hand for this dip. They were the first to go!
- 1 8 oz jar of marshmallow cream (fluff)
- 1 250 g package of spreadable strawberry cream cheese at room temperature
- 2 cups of whipped whipping cream (make sure you whip it up first before combining all the ingredients)
- In a mixer, combine all the ingredients, and beat until smooth.
- Refrigerate until ready to serve.

It just doesn’t get much easier than that! This dip will definitely be making more appearances at our get togethers. And I bet it would be delicious with other fruit flavoured cream cheese like blueberry, apple & cinnamon…yummmmm
