At the root of this appetizer is a boatload of sweet, citrusy flavor. Children will find the carved pineapple appealing and be eager to dig into the delicious dip inside with fresh-cut chunks of summer fruit. "Adults also find the fruit dip delightful," comments Katie Adams from Red Oak, Texas. "I often treat myself to a batch when melons are in season."—Katie Adams, Red Oak, Texas

"I recently made this for a Hawaiian Luau. I have never heard of using an egg in a fruit dip so I was a little afraid but it was very good. And it was fluffly just like the name. Goes good with most any fruit and makes quit a big batch. I would definately make this again! Yum!"
