Using fat-free instead of full-fat cream cheese cuts about 50 calories and 4 grams of mostly saturated fat from each serving.
Remove the cream cheese from the refrigerator to allow it to soften, about 5 minutes.
In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, vanilla and cream cheese. Mix until smooth. Stir in chopped peanuts.
Place sliced apples in another bowl. Drizzle orange juice over the apples to prevent browning. Drain the sliced apples and serve with the dip.
