Orange Cheesecake Fruit Dip

I keep our fruit bowl stocked year around, but especially during the summer months.  We eat fruit by the truckloads during the summer months.  It's healthy, refreshing and can be grabbed quickly.

We love our fruit by itself, but from time to time I like to change things up and add a little something to serve with the fruit.  This fruit dip is one of our favorites.  It's so good, flavorful and can be made in no time.  I love making a big batch of this and spooning up a bowl whenever I cut up fruit to snack on.
This fruit dip can be customized to your taste and mood; simply omit the orange juice and zest and change the pudding flavor according to taste.  I've made a variety of flavors and they are all delicious and a hit with my family.

This particular version tastes just like those orange dreamsicles that I enjoyed throughout my childhood.  The orange zest and fresh squeezed orange juice add a burst of refreshing and bright flavor to this dip. 

This dip is a cinch to make and perfect with whatever fruits you have on hand.  This is great for an afternoon snack, can be layered with fruit and granola for a fun breakfast treat, and can be placed in a bowl and plopped in the cooler for a yummy snack by the pool!

Orange Cheesecake Fruit Dip
Ingredients:

1/2 Cup Greek yogurt (vanilla or plain)
1/2 (3.4oz)  Package cheesecake instant pudding mix
Zest of half a medium orange
Juice of half a medium orange
1/2 Cup whipping cream*
2 Tbsp powdered sugar*

Directions:

Place whipping cream in a medium bowl and beat on high until peaks begin to form.  Add powdered sugar and continue beating until stiff peaks form.  Set aside.

Place yogurt and pudding mix in a bowl and stir until completely incorporated.  Add the orange zest and orange juice and stir to combine.  Gently fold in whipped cream.  Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.

Notes-
*Store bought whipped topping can be used in place of whipping cream.
*If using store bought whipping topping, omit powdered sugar
*Sugar free pudding can be used in place of regular pudding, I have used sugar free and there is no
  difference.
*Sugar free or light whipped topping may be used
