By now you know that I’m always looking for ways to mix up a really yummy dessert & make it just a tad better for you so you’re not feeling that post-party sugar hangover. That’s why I created this dessert dip. I swapped out the cream cheese you typically find in these dips with a little plant powered protein!
What is this secret ingredient?! …….. It’s tofu! This soy-based protein is so versatile you can make stir fry, desserts, use it as an alternative to eggs & dairy…the list goes on. Now before you go saying, “tofu in dessert? that’s weird…” just trust me! You literally will not even notice it’s the main ingredient & it makes for such a silky dip, it will have you reaching for tofu every time you make a dessert dip.
If you’re wondering about the benefits & misconceptions of soy, please read this article by my dietitian friend, Mascha, of Nomadista Nutrition. Mascha sums up the science behind soy perfectly & busts those weird myths you may have heard!
Alright, I won’t make you wait any longer…here is my Gingerbread Dessert Dip! Now go make it & run off to your holiday parties!!
