Some exciting things have been cooking up for me around town and I hope to share them with you all soon, but let’s just say it’s something deliciously healthy. I love being able to teach people about wellness and innovation and what better way than through food, right? And speaking of food, I know many of us will no doubt be munching on a lot of food this weekend (myself included), so I wanted to create a healthy Super Bowl worthy dessert you can share with your friends and family (even the other teams fans).
So even though my team won’t be playing in the big game, I’ve made a tasty treat that’s sure to be a “touchdown” with your crowd (yup, I love dumb jokes). So if you missed the Blab, here’s a simple recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip
- 1/2c soaked cashews (paleo use almonds)
- 1/2c coconut butter
- 1/3c coconut milk
- 8 medjool dates *
- 1T vanilla extract
- 1/4t baking soda
- pinch of sea salt
- 3-4T chocolate chips (or more!)
*if you don’t have dates, feel free to substitute with the sweetener of your choosing!
I like to think all of my recipes are fairly simple and this is now exception. Place your cashew and coconut butter in a food processor and begin to blend. Slowly add in all of your other ingredients (except the chocolate chips) and process until smooth a creamy.
Be sure to taste the “batter” before adding the chocolate chips. If you need a little more sweetness feel free to add a little maple syrup, honey or stevia. When you’ve reached your desired consistency and sweetness, let it cool, and add your chocolate chips!
This dip is perfect for dipping fruit and if you’re feeling really crazy, you could dip graham crackers, cookies, or rice crispies (of course, don’t blame me if you have a sugar crash…).
Have a happy and healthy Super Bowl Sunday!
Don’t have some of these ingredients, try this recipe and just add chocolate chips!
