Piña colada fruit dip is sweet and has a smooth coconut taste with hints of pineapple. It is perfect for dipping your favorite fruits (pineapple is the best) but is delicious as a snack dip for cookies and sweet crackers.
Pina Coladas are know for their perfect blend of coconut and pineapple flavors. This fruit dip has both! The coconut is the star of this dip with the perfect hint of pineapple.
To get the coconut flavor you need Cream of Coconut.
You can see the kind I use below! (It will store in your fridge so you can make this dip again and again!)
Cream of coconut can be found in almost any grocery store and is usually by the mixed drink mixers (margarita mixers etc).
NOTE: This is different from coconut cream that you can find with the Asian and Latin foods – you do not want this. THERE IS A DIFFERENCE!!
Coconut cream is a coconut milk and is not sweetened – stay away from it! But cream of coconut is a thick and sweet coconuty syrup that is used for Pina Colada drinks. This is exactly what you need and want! (See the photo below to see the texture and thickness of the cream of coconut.
The other ingredients that will be mixed with the cream of coconut are simple. Pineapple juice, cool whip, cream cheese and vanilla.
The pineapple juice is just straight pineapple juice.

Making the Fruit Dip
You can mix this dip by hand or use a hand mix or a stand mixer. Using a mixer makes it a bit easier to get the cream cheese smooth. But you can certainly do it by hand.
If your cream cheese is softened to room temperature this helps mix it also and helps eliminate lumps.
I mix the cream cheese first to get it nice and smooth.
Next, add the cool whip.
Gently fold in the whip cream and add the cream of coconut, pineapple juice and vanilla.
Fruit or Cookies, and Sweet Crackers
Enjoy Pina Colada Fruit Dip with your favorite fruits. Watermelon, grapes, watermelon, bananas, pineapple and raspberries are delicious with this fruit dip.
Fresh raspberries can be hard to dip so i like to add them to a little bit of the dip and eat it a spoon! Just make sure your raspberries are really dry after rinsing them so extra water doesn’t get in your dip. TIP: I let my raspberries drain in a colander and dry before eating them.
This dip is delicious with sweet cookies and crackers dipped in at as well. Graham crackers, Nola Wafers, animal cookies and shortbread cookies are yummy with this pineapple-coconut dip.
Store any leftovers of this dip in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
