how to make cream cheese dip at home

If necessity is the mother of invention, then cravings must be the key that opens the door to necessity. Sounds complicated, right? But this refreshing dip is anything but complicated. Today, I spent the afternoon in my kitchen creating Jamaican Coconut Toast. It was time well spent. Taking it a step further, I created a tropical cream cheese dip to top the toast.

The thing I love most about this dip is its versatility. Using cream cheese as a base, you can add any of your favorite fruits to create a dip that fits your taste. I used fresh pineapple and banana mixed with whipped cream cheese to create a lightly sweet dip with a tropical flair. Since the coconut toast is a recipe inspired by Jamaica, I paired it with flavors that represent that cultural cuisine.

There are many wonderful uses for this dip. Serve it with fresh fruit for a beautiful appetizer. Use it as a custard or pie filling.  Spread it over pancakes or waffles.  Fill chocolate shot cups for an impressive addition to your buffet or dinner table. The possibilities are endless.
