Here’s another recipe that you may wonder what I was one when I dreamed it up.  But trust me, it works.  Totally.  With so many different options.

Think about it – Healthy.  Chocolate.  Dip.  With a vegetable in there too.  Oh, did I say that out loud?  Don’t let your kids know, that this rich, chocolate-y dip is actually healthy.  With no added sugar AT ALL.

It’s gluten free.  It’s dairy free.  It’s Paleo.  It’s vegan.  It could be nut free (if you use coconut milk instead of the almond milk).  It ticks all the boxes (for me, anyway!).

I’ve eaten this with apples.  I’ve eaten this with strawberries.  I’ve eaten this with kiwi fruit.  (I’m starting to sound like a Dr Seuss book here, aren’t I?).  And I’ve also used it as a spread on waffles, bread and English muffins.  It’s so versatile – but it is sweet, so I probably wouldn’t look at using it with any savory dishes.  But if you like the sweet and savory combo, give it a go and let me know what you think!

Or, if you’re more like me, just eat this by the spoonful!
