Cashew Chocolate Dip – A healthy chocolate dip!

For real? A healthy chocolate dip?…YEP! And it tastes fantastic.  No one needs to know it’s actually healthy.

I wish I could say I invented this but I didn’t.  I am thrilled to be sharing it with you though!  It came from Dr. Fuhrman’s website and as a member I get access to awesome recipes, support and information.

I made this tasty dip to serve with fruit after our Easter lunch and it was aaaaamazing!! The original recipe calls for almond or almond butter but I used cashew butter and it was great.  The best thing about this is that you can follow a plant-based, unprocessed diet and still enjoy something that your friends will think looks and tastes normal 🙂 This is also friendly for people on vegan or raw food diets too.

  1. This looks delicious! It’s definitely going in my to-try file since cashews and chocolate are on our family’s favorites list.

  2. Now this looks delish! I must try it 🙂 Thanks for sharing.

  3. Ahhh. My favorite kind of treat!!! I will definitely by trying this out. Thanks!

  4. It looks like a combination of Nutella and chocolate pudding!! Yum! My problem is I’m not good with portions so I’d probably eat the whole thing! LOL

    • it was for a group of 9..that’s how we accomplish portion control because you have to share and you don’t want to look like a pig in front of company…hahahahaha…otherwise me and my son would probably have eaten the whole thing alone…it was very tasty so i’m not planning on having it too often.

  5. This looks SO good, Isa!
