I love dips! If you’ve been hanging around here for awhile you know that I love a good dip or appetizer. And now that football has kicked off, there’s a reason for a good dip a couple of times a week. As I mentioned before, last week I had my family over to watch the first Buckeye’s game. In addition to dinner I had a few appetizers ready for the family to munch on.
My little niece was with us and she’s allergic to milk. I wanted to have something fun for her to dip her apples into. Sure, peanut butter and caramel would be easy, but I wanted to make something unique for the big game. My sister is a wealth of info when it comes to special dairy free recipes, so I decided to use the apple dip recipe she sent me that is made with cashews. I mean, yum!
To make the cashew apple dip recipe you will need:
2 Cups cashews
3/4 Cups dates, soaked and drained
1/4 Cup honey
2 TB maple syrup
2 TB coconut oil, melted
pinch of salt
3 TB Silk almond milk
I think this recipe would be equally delicious if you tried Silk’s Cashew milk. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find it at my store. (You can find what stores near you sell it here.) The almond was delicious with it – but the cashew milk might blow your mind.
Add the cashews and soaked dates into the food processor along with all the rest of the ingredients except for the Silk Almond Milk.
While the food processor is running, slowly add the Silk Almond Milk. You can add more or less depending on how smooth you want your dip to be. This recipe is creamy but I found that it still had bits of cashews in it. That could be because it was my first time using a food processor, and my food processor only cost me $25. However, I really liked the chunky bits of cashews as I like crunchy peanut butter anyways. You may find your results are creamier if you have a fast food processor or mix it longer.
That’s it! This recipe makes ALOT. The next time I’ll probably make half of the recipe. This apple dip is perfect for lunchtime snacks as much as it’s perfect for a meatless Monday while you watch the big game. And since you know everything that’s in it, you can enjoy it!
