"Carmel" Apple Dip

I am posting this recipe due to popular demand from my family. One of the blogs I follow, The Whole Life Nutrition, posted this recipe about a month back and I tried it, and my husband and I LOVE it!

We have made this probably 3 times since, and it is delicious every time. I made a few adjustments to the original recipe to make it work with what we had at home.

The consistency of this dip is not the same as Carmel; however the color and the taste are very similar. This is a great healthy dessert!

“Carmel” Apple Dip
1 cup raw cashews
1 cup Raisins
1/4 cup grade B maple syrup
2 teaspoons alcohol free vanilla
Pinch sea salt
6-8 tbps water

Place the cashews into a small bowl and cover with water. Let soak at room temp for about 2 to 3 hours.

To make the dip, drain and rinse the cashews then place them into a food processor along with the raisins, maple syrup, vanilla, and salt. Add about 3-6 tablespoons of water and blend. Blend until smooth. Then transfer to a blender and add additional 3-4 tablespoons water and blend until creamy.

Serve with sliced apples!

So easy and so delicious!
