"Breakfast to Remember" Fruit Topping
Serves: 30-40 as a topping
This delicious fruit topping was developed in our kitchen with years of fine tuning and tweaking on suggestions of our guests. Here is the finely homed, time- and guest-tested signature topping that is constantly one of our most requested recipes. It is quick and easy to make.
  • 8 oz vanilla yogurt
  • 8 oz Marshmallow Fluff or cream
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • zest of ½ orange or lemon
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tbsp light honey
  • juice of ½ orange or lemon
  1. Warm the yogurt, Marshmallow Fluff, and cream cheese so that it will blend easily.
  2. Using a large mixing bowl, start with the yogurt and whisk in the Marshmallow Fluff until creamy.
  3. Add the cream cheese and whisk until creamy again, then add the zest, ginger, and honey.
  4. Blend well, using the juice of the orange or lemon to bring it to desired consistency.
  5. Serve with a tad of your favorite granola, crushed to fine granules, sprinkled on the topping. The presentation and taste is smashing.
In addition to being used as a fruit topping, this also works well as a vegetable/chip dip as it is semi-sweet and just the right consistency. You can put this in small tubs, freeze it, and thaw a small tub at a time. It will keep for several weeks, but seal tight, and thaw slowly overnight.
