What Makes Jason’s Deli Fruit Dip Recipe So Good?

This crave-worthy dip, made with brown sugar-sweetened tangy sour cream and just a hint of orange flavor, will turn any fruit in your fridge into a delicious dessert that even your kids will want to devour. 

Why You Should Try This Recipe 

With only three ingredients, this recipe for Jason’s Deli Fruit Dip is one of the simplest ones you’ll find online.

Unlike similar fruit dips, this version doesn’t include whipped topping, cream cheese, or Grand Marnier liqueur but calls for a few drops of orange extract. These small changes make a world of difference and give this recipe its unique taste.

Jason’s Deli Fruit Dip Ingredients

For this recipe, you’ll need:

  • Sour cream
  • Light brown sugar, as fine as possible
  • Orange extract

For the best results, buzz the brown sugar in a food processor to turn it into powder before using it in the recipe. The finer the brown sugar, the less gritty the dip will feel on your tongue.

What Type of Fruit Can You Serve With This? 

A little of this fruit dip will improve just about any fruit. Apple slices, pear slices, grapes, pineapple chunks, melon chunks, fresh strawberries, and segments of oranges are easy to hold and dip. Dipping smaller fruits and berries can get a little messy.

A good solution is to make a fruit kebab with blueberries, raspberries, seedless grapes, chunks of melon, and strawberries. Or you can make a fresh fruit bowl and drizzle the dip over the top.

Don’t forget to fill the fruit tray with a few other snacks like nuts, pretzels, crackers, and cheese for a little variety.

You can use this creamy concoction for so much more than just dipping! Here are just a few other serving ideas:

  • Add a dollop of the Fruit Dip on top of blintzes, pancakes, and fruit or nut pies. 
  • Spread it on lady fingers or pre-cooked tart shells and top with your favorite berries. 
  • Try using Jason’s Deli Fruit Dip instead of yogurt in a fruit and granola parfait for a real treat!
