Creamy Cashew Dip (Kopie)

*****

A holiday gift for you! My Creamy Cashew Dip from Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan!

I first mentioned this dip here, and after I included it my recent VegNews article, Leslie also has been excited about it. This dip is just a little sweet and so kids will love to dunk fruit and veggies into it. But, don’t think it’s just kid fare… adults will delight in this dip too!

1/2 cup cashew butter (see note)
2/3 cup vanilla soy yogurt
2 teaspoons agave nectar
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon (rounded) cinnamon

1. Add all ingredients to a mini food processor and puree until very smooth. You can also mix by hand, whisking until very smooth and well incorporated, but if you have a mini processor it is much faster and easier to do.
2. Serve with:
- slices or sticks of pineapple, melon, banana, apple, pear, orange segments
- vegetable sticks including cucumber, carrot, jicama, or celery
- lightly sweetened crackers (ex: Health Valley Amaranth Crackers), sweet breads, or mini-bagels.

Notes:
1) Other nut butters can be substituted for the cashew butter, including almond butter or a natural peanut butter.
2) If using fruits that quickly oxidize and turn brown (ex: apples, pear), toss them in a little freshly squeezed lemon juice diluted with water, or orange juice.
