I'll be sharing four different dips- two sweet ones and two savory. Best of all- they're all vegan!
Cookie Dough Dip
6 tablespoons vegan butter, soft
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 splash vanilla
2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk
1 pinch salt
1 cup flour
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
Cream together butter and sugar. Stir in vanilla and milk, then slowly mix in flour and salt. Once everything is combined, stir in chocolate chips. This is also great with any kind of mix-ins- toffee chips, peanut butter, or oreos!
Creamy Dreamy Chocolate Dip
2 cups raw cashews, soaked overnight
2 tablespoons cacao powder (I used Hershey's dark)
3 dates, soaked for an hour
2 tablespoons agave nectar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate non-dairy milk (I prefer almond milk, but cashew is also fine!)
1 pinch salt
Blend all ingredients in a blender and serve. Not only is this great as a dip, but it also works as a vegan pudding!
Kalamata Olive Hummus
1 cup chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 lemon, juiced
2 tablespoons tahini
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon kalamata olives
Blend all ingredients in a food processor. Add one tablespoon of water at a time until smooth. Garnish with more olives, sliced up. If you don't like olives, feel free to substitute roasted peppers, sundried tomatoes or cilantro.
Chunky Black Bean Dip
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
2 celery stalks, diced
1/4 onion, diced
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp red pepper
pinch of salt
pinch of pepper
Mix together beans, celery and onion. In a small bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients very well. Pour dressing into bean bowl and mix.
