Healthy Cheesecake Dip

Healthy Cheesecake dip
Can I just take a minute to say that I love Chocolate Covered Katie? I’ve made many of her recipes, and my favorite so far has been the healthy cookie dough dip. The basic concept of these dips (she has a couple) is to use garbanzo beans as a base and add your ingredients to that. Because the beans are so bland, but packed with protein, they make a great base for a number of flavors. Technically this is a dip, but I’ll be honest and say I just eat it. And I don’t feel bad doing it! For those of you using LiveStrong.com, the recipe is here to add to your plate. =D The nutrition facts according to LiveStrong are below. =D

Home made Cheesecake dip

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups Chickpeas
  • 3/4 cup Light Sour Cream
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/8 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Splenda
  • 120 g No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake Mix
  • 1/4 cup Crushed Graham Cracker

How to Make It:

This one is SUPER easy. Drop beans, sour cream and everything else into a food processor (not a blender, mixture is very thick and does not blend well in a blender) and then blend until smooth!

In case you were wondering, the baking soda is used for flavor, and can be omitted if you would prefer.

      It really is. Once I tell people what’s in it they usually scoff at the beans. But I swear- you can’t tell!
