Surprised at the secret ingredient? Don’t worry, you can’t taste it at all. I HATE the flavor of beets so I masked the flavor with homemade vanilla paste, butter extract and stevia. At first I started with one teaspoon of each. I gave the mixture a taste and almost spit it out because I could detect the beets. I added an extra two teaspoons of the flavorings and the dip quickly turned into absolute perfection.
This cheesecake dip is sooo delicious it’s hard to believe it’s actually good for you. I wanted to see what the nutrition label for this recipe would look like so I made one. I was totally shocked at how amazing it was… I’m still shocked. I needed to compare my nutrition label to the label of a typical, unhealthy dip recipe. There is no shortage of unhealthy dip recipes floating around the internet… it’s time to change that, yes?
So, without further ado…
The unhealthy recipe’s nutrition label is on the left, the Desserts with Benefits label is on the right:
I think my eyes just popped out of my skull. For the same amount of dip my recipe has nearly 1/7th the calories. You will save 450 calories by choosing by dip over the unhealthy version. In all seriousness, WHO in the world only eats a half cup of this deliciousness? Who can resist?! If you have two servings — or one cup — you save yourself 900 calories. That’s crazy. My jaw just dropped to the floor.
My recipe also contains no refined sugar, no bleached flour and no deadly trans fats. Awesome, right? Plus, my recipe has fiber and protein. OH, and it has a vegetable. Yeah, so you can eat this healthy dip with happy thoughts
Now isn’t this the perfect dip for Valentine’s Day? The color just puts me in the loving mood…
The loving mood for some more (healthy) Red Velvet Cheesecake Dip 😉
