Easy fruit dip with sweetened condensed milk
What do you make when you’re short on time but want to serve a fantastic treat? A dessert dip, of course! It’s quick, easy, and the perfect way to enjoy fruit.
When I recently found myself with a tub of Greek yogurt and a can of condensed milk, I decided why not make a sweetened condensed milk fruit dip.
This homemade fruit dip checks all the boxes. It’s creamy, sweet, and oh so delicious. I won’t judge you if you want to eat it by the spoonful and finger swipe any reaming streaks left behind in the bowl.
This no cream cheese fruit dip is so good, I felt compelled to share it with you. The recipe is ridiculously simple, and is ready for dipping in mere minutes. You’ll love it!
Why you’ll love this fruit dip without cream cheese
- No cream cheese or marshmallow fluff: Forgoing the cream cheese and marshmallow fluff in favor of yogurt results in a lighter, ultra-smooth + creamy texture. And sweetened condensed milk adds a subtle toffee note.
- Quick + easy: Once you see how fast this no marshmallow fruit dip comes together, you’ll want to make it all the time. It’s essentially a one-step recipe that requires not more than 5 minutes of your time.
- Simple ingredients: Just look at the 4 ingredients in this recipe and tell me how it could not be good. Yogurt, condensed milk, vanilla, and a splash of lemon juice. It’s SO good!
This fruit dip without cream cheese is super easy to make and only calls for 4 ingredients (2 being optional) – most of which you probably already have in your kitchen. Here’s what you’ll need:
- Greek yogurt: Full-fat plain Greek yogurt will result in the creamiest and smoothest consistency. The dip can also be prepared with low-fat or nonfat Greek yogurt. You are also more than welcome to sub in vanilla yogurt or fruit yogurt. But if you do, you may use less condensed milk since flavored yogurt is often sweetened.
- Sweetened condensed milk: I decided to use condensed milk for this dessert dip because it adds sweetness and a milky toffee note. There really isn’t a substitute for condensed milk here; evaporated milk will not work.
- Vanilla extract (optional): A whole teaspoon of vanilla extract rounds out the other flavors and adds a yummy warm note.
- Lemon juice (optional): I don’t always add lemon juice, but it’s perfect if you want a slight tang in your 2-ingredient fruit dip.
How to make condensed milk fruit dip
As I’ve mentioned, this easy fruit dip recipe requires juts one quick step:
- Mix dip. Place the Greek yogurt into a medium-sized mixing bowl. Add the vanilla extract and lemon juice. Then pour the sweetened condensed milk into the bowl. Mix until everything is well combined.
- Tip: In case you prefer a lighter fruit dip, feel free to scale back on the amount of sweetened condensed milk you add to the recipe.

The options for serving this sweetened condensed milk fruit dip are endless. It’s delicious on its own eaten with a spoon, with fruit, cookies, or pretzels. Here are a few ideas:
- Fresh fruit is perfect to accompany this dip. Strawberries, blueberries, mandarin halves, apple slices, pineapple chunks, mango cubes, and grapes are all tasty options.

- Mini pretzels: Are you a fan of salty-sweet flavor combos? Then grab a bag of mini pretzels and get dipping.
How to serve fruit dip

How to store homemade fruit dip

How long does this condensed milk fruit dip last?
This fruit dip recipe will last up to a week when stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container. And because the recipe is so EASY to make, you can whip it up at a moment’s notice whenever you crave a simple fruit dessert.
Can you make condensed milk fruit dip ahead of time?
Yes, you can make this sweetened condensed milk fruit dip a day or two ahead of time. If you notice some liquid separating from the yogurt, just give everything a quick stir and enjoy.
Can you freeze fruit dip?
Yes, it’s possible to freeze this dip, but I don’t recommend it. Sweetened condensed milk freezes very well, but Greek yogurt will change its texture after defrosting. The dip will get chunkier, lose some of its smoothness, and become thinner.
I just made this and it’s drippy. Is there a way to thicken it up?
Hi Kristi! The lemon juice thickens the condensed milk quite a lot, it goes from liquid to a creamy consistency. For a thick, creamy dip, be sure to use enough lemon juice. 1 tbsp lemon juice does the trick for me, but you can always add 2 to 3 tbsp.
You could also reduce the amount of yogurt in case you use fat-reduced or non-fat yogurt. I hope this helps you out!
