Dessertin Dips a Daze!

     This past weekend I got together with the lovely Melissa, we were ready to dance, super chilly, and prepped with high protein noms! The plan was a 'RETROSKANKMANIA' dance party, 80's hair whipped, and florescently adorned but that kind of fell through but it was still AWESOME! Melissa whipped up a delicious turmeric and garlicky hummus (we both like hummus) that good! Homer moans deserved!

     I played with some ideas and made some desert dips...but SUPER HEALTHY dessert dips! I'm not into sweets very much (gimme them salty stuff) but maybe it's the rounding Vday situation or the overwhelming lack of sweets that had me really thinking "Snickerdoodles drool"~
     I wanted healthy and guilt free, high protein preferably and I wound up with a Snickerdoodle raisin dip and a chocolate chip cookie (with green tea kisses) dip!

     I've never been one to gorge in cookie-dough but I imagine the is a close one, right? So...what did I do for the snickerdoodle jam?

What you need:

  1. 1 can of chickpeas
  2. 1-2 T nut butter (I used chunky peanut...nommm)
  3. 1-2 T of cinnamon...up to you really, this veganbeat LOVES cinnamon~higher fiber!!
  4. 2 or more T water, add more for preferred consitency!
  5. 1+ T liquid sweetner...feel free to add more if you want more sweet 
  6. 1/2-3/4 C raisins (OR dried cranberries!) 
What to do:
  1. Got a blender? Mix the first five ingredients..then throw in them dried yums!
Enjoy with apple and asian pear slices, or some whole wheat crackers! YUM

      Cookie dough, the mere thought of it and I start thinking some sort of post-break up "I WILL REGRET THIS" therapy...but after working out hard, and barely eating anything sweet (How I've avoided this in Korea) this is deserved...hell it always is, it's nearly fat free!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip with some Green tea kisses
What you need:

  1. 1 can chickpeas
  2. 1/4-1/5 dark DARK chocolate
  3. 1/4 t green tea salt
  4. 1-2 T nut butter (again, the crunchy peanut butter)
  5. water until preferred consistency
  6. 1-2 T liquid sweetner (or dry sugar)...sweeten to your liking!
What to do:
  1. blender this jam! Just do it...and love it!
Serve with some sort of hard stone fruit or whole wheat cracker

So much protein, fiber, and all around goodness! If you can find some date sugar, I bet this would taste even better. Maple syrup, where you at?

Sugar free is very possible, and you won't substitute taste...agave!!~

Happy nomming!
