Easiest fruit dip recipe - whipped topping and pudding mix

One of the easiest fruit dip recipes out there!

This fruit dip recipe is super easy and simple – it only involves two ingredients and some refrigeration time. Lots of flavor options too!

It is a fun dip to throw together as an appetizer, side dish, picnic food, or fruit dessert for parties or a BBQ. In fact, it is one of my husband’s favorite fruit dips ever!

Mixing cool whip and instant pudding mix

How this recipe came to be:

One day, years ago, my Aunt Cammie needed to come up with a fun dip in a pinch. So she combined a container of whipped topping and a package of instant pudding mix, then let it set overnight in the fridge. The result was fabulous! Fluffy and sweet, and only 2 ingredients needed!

She serves it at holiday gatherings every once in a while and that’s when we first tried it out. My husband loves dips and this fluffy fruit dip was no exception. So she told me how to make it and now I’m sharing it with you too!

How to make it:

  1. Let the frozen whipped topping thaw in the fridge until you can easily combine it with the dry instant pudding mix. (I used a cheesecake instant pudding mix in the photos, but you can use lemon, chocolate, vanilla, or any other pudding flavor that you think would be delicious with the fruit.)
  2. Stir the 2 ingredients together in a bowl.
  3. Put the bowl in the fridge and let it set for a few hours or overnight. After setting, the texture becomes nice and fluffy.

Serve with apples, bananas, strawberries, grapes, or any other good dipping fruit! Just make sure to wash them first with this DIY fruit and veggie wash spray 😉

Comments & Reviews

  • This is also good with canned pumpkin!

  • Can you use sugar free pudding for this?

  • Hi! This is so easy and most everyone loves it! My husband doesn’t care too much for the instant pudding so, I use some confectionery sugar and I add a couple drops of Almond Extract. He loves it! Thanks!

  • There was no way a 3.4 oz box of pudding mixed with cool whip works. It was thick and lumpy. I found another recipe and it called for milk (as in making pudding). I had already mixed the cool whip and the pudding, but thought I would add the milk after the fact. Didn’t work!!! I had a chocolate mess! And now I don’t have any pudding or any pudding! I am not a happy camper! I don’t even feel like eating any fruit! TY very much!

    • Hi, I am sorry that it did not work out for you. I have great success with this exact recipe. Did you let it sit in the fridge at least a few hours after mixing? I usually let mine refrigerate overnight, then remix a bit and it is perfect. This resting time is when it changes its texture and loses those lumps.
