This sweet snack perfectly compliments slices of freshly cut apple slices. Since it is that time of year, this is a great treat to bring to work for an afternoon pick-me up. My coworkers spread this on “corn crisps” and on hunks of banana–so it can be versatile and not strictly for apple slices. This recipe is as easy as putting the ingredients in a blender or food processor–and voila! A healthy, autumn treat.
Raw Caramel Dip
Makes About 2 Cups
Adapted from the Whole Life Nutrition Kitchen
1 cup of raw cashews, soaked for 3 hours or up to overnight
1 cup of Medjool dates, pitted

1/4-1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 TBL pure vanilla extract
a pinch of Maldon sea salt
Seasonal apples of your choice…
- To make the dip, drain and rinse the cashews then place them into a blender or food processor along with the dates, honey, 1/4 cup of the almond milk, vanilla, & salt. Blend until ultra smooth, scraping down the sides if needed. Add more milk, to get the creamy consistency you desire.
- Scoop into a small bowl and serve with sliced fresh apples.
