I put this fruit dip on top of pineapple upside down cupcakes and sprinkled with toasted coconut - so delicious!

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!
