This sweet snack perfectly compliments slices of freshly cut apple slices. Since it is that time of year, this is a great treat to bring to work for an afternoon pick-me up. My work buddies spread this on "corn crisps" and on hunks of banana--so it can be versatile and not strictly for apple slices. This recipe is as easy as putting the ingredients in a blender or food processor--and voila! A healthy, autumn treat.
makes about 2 cups
Adapted from the Whole Life Nutrition Kitchen
1 cup of raw cashews, soaked for 3 hours or up to overnight
1 cup of Medjool dates, pitted
1/4 cup raw honey (or if you want to go vegan you can use Maple syrup)
1/4-1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 TBL pure vanilla extract
a pinch of Maldon sea salt
apples of your choice...
- To make the dip, drain and rinse the cashews then place them into a blender or food processor along with the dates, honey, 1/4 cup of the almond milk, vanilla, & salt. Blend until ultra smooth, scraping down the sides if needed. Add more milk, to get the creamy consistency you desire.
- Scoop into a small bowl and serve with sliced fresh apples.
happy eatings & cheers!
