On the Lighter Side

Almond Butter Dip and Apple Slices

img_0526

Not everyone at holiday parties is able to eat decadent desserts. So for those watching their sugar intake, I brought this almond-cream cheese dip to our neighborhood Christmas coffee this morning. And I came home with an empty platter!

Ingredients:

1/3 cup almond butter

3 ounces cream cheese

2 splashes of almond milk (or milk of your choice)

1/4 tsp. cinnamon

1 tbsp. honey

2 large apples, sliced (I used Gala)

For years I mixed up a small container of strawberry cream cheese and a jar of marshmallow fluffy stuff with a pinch of cinnamon for my fruit dip. Trying to go a bit healthier these days!

Directions:

  1. Mix all the ingredients in a food processor until smooth.
  2. Serve with apple slices.
