OMG!! This vegan spinach dip is just TOO GOOD!! I brought it to a family event over the holiday season and it was a huge hit! It’s perfectly paired with veggies, pita bread, and crackers – also a serious game changer.
What does Raw Vegan Mean?
Raw vegan foods are basically foods that are untouched by any processing. That also includes no cooking or heating the food past 118ºF (or 48ºC). These foods carry the highest vibrations which make out bodies feel AMAZING!
This vegan spinach dip uses fully raw ingredients and can be paired with raw veggies, pita bread, chips, crackers, or added to sandwiches and salads! The raw ingredients used include avocado, soaked cashews, spinach, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar & a little pink Himalayan salt (which is optional)!
My Recommendation: Eat more raw foods! I don’t eat a fully raw diet by any means. It’s not sustainable for everyone on this beautiful planet to eat that way. It’s best to incorporate some cooked foods like grains, root veggies (sweet potatoes) and beans/legumes in your diet.
Creamy Vegan Spinach Dip
What makes this vegan spinach dip so creamy? All those healthy fats! This is not a low-fat dish, which makes it super creamy and also quite addicting! Getting your daily dose of healthy fats is very important for a healthy body.
Healthy fats help to keep your skin, hair, and nails soft and strong. It’s also CRUCIAL for keeping your hormones balanced and healthy. Make sure you are also eating enough carbs and protein for your body. A diet with balanced macros (carbs, fats, protein) keeps your body running at it’s best!
You can read more about macro/micronutrients (and so much more about a plant-based diet) in the Plant-Based Difference: Vegan Starter Guide! Also, check out the Bundle which comes with the Recipe Book!
The Blender is Everything!
What is the best blender for the job? This recipe was made with a high-speed blender, which is DEFINITELY recommended for best results.
If you have a food processor, Ninja, or any other type of blender, this dip might turn out a little less creamy and have slightly an uneven texture to it. The good news is that it will still be super tasty!
If you don’t have a high speed blender like a Blendtec or a Vitamix yet, I definitely recommend getting one. They are the perfect addition to a healthy kitchen and can really “amp up” your recipes – especially best for breaking down greens for smoothies!
