Healthy Cake Batter Dip
This Cake Batter Dip tastes exactly like a slice of cake, just in dip form! It is smooth and creamy, sweet and buttery, and rich and flavorful… you would never guess that it’s healthy, all natural and actually good for you.
This Healthy Cake Batter Dip pairs perfectly with fresh strawberries, animal crackers and graham crackers. You can totally use a spoon too, though 😉
Clearly I took the spoon route. Later I dunked some fresh strawberries in here (SO. DELICIOUS.)
I could eat this Cake Batter Dip all day, seriously. I’d take a bowl of this dip over a bowl of dessert oatmeal, a bowl of cereal… heck, I’d choose this dip over a bowl of CANDY. You know me, I love sweets, so for me to choose this dip over candy like Hershey’s and Snickers, you know this has gotta be good!
This recipe is so much better than all of the other cake batter dip recipes online because this one doesn’t use boxed cake mixes, which are full of sugar, bleached flour and trans fats. I can’t believe some people call their dips “healthy” when they use boxed cake mix as an ingredient!
Tsk tsk *shakes head*
I really need to show you the nutrition label for this recipe, it’s AMAZING. I was totally shocked and had to compare it to a typical Cake Batter Dip recipe. I found about a bazillion recipes all over the web but all of them are the same: 1 box of Pillsbury Funfetti Cake Mix, 1 pound of yogurt, 8oz of Cool Whip and rainbow sprinkles. I could list off about fifty things wrong with those ingredients but I won’t bore you with that, I’ll just show you the differences between my healthy recipe and the unhealthy recipe.
A typical Cake Batter Dip nutrition label is on the left, the Desserts with Benefits label is on the right:
Daaaayyyyuum!! The difference is crazy. My recipe’s nutrition label is nutritionally balanced with healthy fats, complex carbohydrates, no added sugar and a substantial amount of protein. Not to mention, my recipe is modest in calories! On the other hand, the unhealthy recipe is high calorie, high fat (and high saturated fat too) and high sugar (nearly 3 tablespoons worth of sugar). To make matters worse, it also contains harmful trans fats. Um, no thanks, I’d rather not eat that dip because I’d like to avoid getting a stroke, heart attack, type II diabetes, etc…
To be honest, I’ve made this Healthy Cake Batter Dip four times in the last few weeks. I bet you will too, it’s just that good. I mean, why take all the time to preheat the oven, mix a batter and stand there staring at the oven for 30 minutes when you can make THIS?? I don’t have time for that, final exams are just a couple days away. AHHH!
You gotta try this recipe out. This super easy dip requires only six ingredients and takes just a few minutes to put together. You will be digging in in no time, so quick, grab a spoon!
