Recipe Directions

  • 1. Blend all ingredients together in your high speed blender until very smooth and creamy.
  • 2. Chill in the fridge for a couple of hours after blending because it'll firm up nicely that way.
  • 3. Enjoy!

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

This raw fruit dip is total comfort food for me. It's the same texture as cream cheese icing, which I used to love... Creamy and almost tangy, mmm!

Try this raw food fruit dip as a dessert. Serve this dip in a bowl with sliced fruit, such as apples, grapes, orange sections, pineapple, etc. Perfect dessert for SAD people and raw fooders alike.

This raw fruit dip also doubles as a very nice icing for raw cakes.

This fruit dip tastes best if kept chilled in the fridge.

Serve this raw fruit dip for dessert tonight! Goes so well with bananas, pineapple and strawberries! Mmm.

I just started raw two weeks ago and am looking for fast and tasty recipes. Next week, we are having our quarterly meeting where I volunteer and it is a tea. I have been wondering what I will take and be able to eat that would be appetizing to others. Found this fruit dip!
How much does this recipe make? Should I double it for the gathering?

Hi Lori, Depends on how many people will be there. But I think this single recipe would do if you are proving for 10-15 people with lots of fresh fruit (chopped) to dip in. Plus, if they happen to run out of dip they can eat fruit on its own.

Hi Toni, I am very interested to see your Christmas Hats! I tried to click on the link, but I think because we are not "Facebook Friends" I am not able to see. Hope your potluck is a success!

I don't have any coconut oil, is there a substitution that would work and still be healthy?
Thank you to any suggestions :)

Hi Sarah, No, sorry, there is no substitute for coconut oil in this recipe. (Other oils will not work at all. Coconut oil hardens when frozen and doesn't have a yucky oily taste)

This fruit dip looks delicious!
I was just wondering if the cashews are raw and soaked before blending?

Cashews are untoasted/unsalted. If you have a really good blender (BlendTec, Vitamix etc) you do not need to soak. If your blender is crappy you might want to soak to soften the cashews

I'm amazed. I would never have thought cashews would make icing, but I made raw banana bread, and spread this on, and it's wonderful. My kids love it.

It depends on preference, but my coldpressed extra virgin coconut oil is unrefined and does taste like coconut

This recipe is truly fabulous and is always a hit with my non-vegan friends. I like to add a hefty amount of dried unsweetened coconut for an added dimension of taste and texture!

Interesting idea about the coconut! I think I like it smooth myself, but I like the idea. Adding small chunks to something smooth is usually a nice idea -  I love doing that with my raw soups

This was absolutely heavenly. I don´t have a high speed blender, but I blended this first in a regular blender and then finished the texture with this hand held blender kind of thingy, don´t know what it is in english :) it came out great. I´m dreaming about a high speed blender though... it would be handy in so many recipes

wow, this stuff is amazing. I couldn't believe how good it tasted, kinda tasted like cake batter a little bit. This is the kind of stuff that will keep me eating raw, I'm not a big fan of apples and used it to spread on apple slices this evening as a snack, I loved it! Great recipe!

yours looks light and fluffy. i did mine in the food processor rather than the blender.... maybe thats why the texture looks different?

Definitely, for best results you want to use a high-speed blender.

Food processor is for dryier stuff (like cakes) and blender if for wetter stuff like icing, dips, smoothies, puddings etc

I have a question. I heard that mixing fruits with fats was a no no. Is that necessarily true? or a myth?
