What is the Pinterest Challenge?

Each month, we are given either a topic or a photo for inspiration. Think in terms of looking through Pinterest for inspiration. That is how Cindy gets inspired for the challenge. If it is photo inspiration, she visits the source and asks if they'd like to be our inspiration for the monthly challenge. It's that simple! It's such a fun post each month.

This month we just went with the topic of Valentine's Day Recipes. This is going to be so fun because you will see quite a few different types of recipes. I hope you will be inspired!

Strawberry Cream Cheese Dessert Dip

Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits so anytime I can incorporate them into a dessert is a win-win.

This Strawberry Whipped Cream recipe came about due to part of the method we use when making our homemade ice cream. So I pulled from it for this recipe in terms of the whipped cream.

This recipe is essentially a strawberry cheesecake dip. I am a sucker for a cheesecake, whether in the form of a cake or dip.

My husband isn't a cream cheese fan, but loves this dip!

This is the perfect dip to serve at a baby shower or even a bridal shower. It makes such a pretty, soft, and romantic shade of pink. The pink makes it perfect for Valentine's Day!

How to Serve It

  • as a dessert on its own like I have done here
  • as part of a charcuterie board
  • you could even serve a dollop on top of a piece of pound cake or brownie

Dipping ideas

  • graham crackers
  • fresh strawberries
  • vanilla wafers
  • variety of fresh fruit like apple slices
  • animal crackers
  • pretzels


  • block of cream cheese
  • powdered sugar
  • vanilla extract
  • heavy cream
  • strawberry jam

Let your block of cream cheese get to room temperature. It will blend easier.

This is such an easy recipe with a few simple ingredients. I typically make it the day to be served, but you could prepare the day before.

The Instructions

It will be much easier to use an electric mixer. I use a stand mixer, but you could also use a hand mixer.

powdered sugar in mixer

In a large mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese and powdered sugar.

Then add in the vanilla extract and strawberry jam until well-blended.

Set this mixture aside.

whipped cream in mixer

Using the whisk attachment with your electric mixer, whisk the whipping cream until stiff peaks form.

Fold the whipping cream into the cream cheese mixture.

ingredients in a bowl

Transfer the mixture to a serving bowl and serve with desired fruits, crackers, and cookies.

You will want to store the sweet dip in an airtight container in the refrigerator. I only keep it for 3 days.

I have not tried the recipe with cool whip in lieu of the whipping cream. I just prefer to not use cool whip. I'm sure it would work as a quicker step.

This strawberry cream cheese dip is definitely a hit with my family.

It's the perfect way to add a simple dessert, especially if doing a charcuterie or meal board.
