Easy cream cheese dip/frosting/filling

This recipe is amazing. I have been looking for the perfect fruit dip for ages and finally figured one out. Before I go any farther I should probably tell you that unlike most of my recipes this is not helthy. I don't have any substitutes for the sugar in the condensed milk but all the fat in the milk and cheese will give you more time to use up that sugar before it turns to fat. Haha! However I do suggest you use a sweetened condensed milk with just milk and sugar, no carageen or other additives.  
You can use this as a dip, a frosting or a filling. If you want a carmel-ie flavor you can substitute dulce de leche. You can also use just milk and powdered sugar but that would be more frosting-ie. But it is easier to substitute the sugar that way. And depending in your taste you can use less sweetened condensed milk. Oooo! Also if you fold in some whipped cream; let me tell you. That, is delicious. Its more fluffy that way.

8oz (1 package) cream cheese, softened
1 small can of sweetened condensed milk (or dulce de leche)
1tsp vanilla
1tsp of lemon juice (don't use if you use dulce de leche)

*optional you can fold in a cup of whipped cream or a couple tbsp of blended up fruit. (Pineapple and strawberries work nice but not with dulce de leche) 

Beat with an electric mixer until combined.
Use as a frosting, filling, or dip for fruit, gram crackers, or pretzels.
