Apple Cinnamon Cream Cheese Dip / Giveaway #SpreadCheer

Hi Everyone,

I am so excited for today’s recipe.  Not because, it’s um, tasty, but because there is a new alternative to cream cheese!  Woohoo!!!  Going dairy-free, one of the things I miss is making dips with cream cheese. I love cream cheese dips, and now I can still have it!  How awesome is that?  And whether you are vegan, gluten free, or just love food, this is an awesome recipe for you!  Just take a look!

Look at that sweet apple goodness all whipped together in a low calorie, tasty dip!!! This dip is sweet, with a hint of cinnamon and almond and drizzled with maple syrup. Oh baby!! This is the perfect fall dip!

I made this dip with dairy free, vegan GO Veggie!  which is just perfect for using in dips or simply spreading on crackers and topping with some nice jam. My personal favorite on cream cheese is a spicy hot jalapeno jam.  I do love a good cracker with cream cheese and jam!  One of my favorite little snacks!!  GO Veggie! Dairy Free, Vegan Cream Cheese Alternative  comes in 3 great flavors:  Classic Plain, Strawberry and Chive  & Garlic.

This dip is really simple to make and can be done in minutes, making it a convenient dish to serve at your next party. Or be like me and enjoy it for a quick, healthy afternoon snack! This certainly is one I look forward to coming home from work and having. The only problem is it can make the work day seem longer – ahh!

    66. Oh Wow!!! Where to start??!! I have so many awesome recipes to try. First, with GO Veggie Cream Cheese Alternative, I would have to make Pumpkin Torte, a recipe I just received after trying this dessert at an open house. Dare I say, DELICIOUS!!!! Then, since I host a huge Christmas gathering (about 40-45 people) at my house, I would also make Garlic & Herb Mashed Potatoes, Buffalo Chicken Dip, Cheesy Onion Dip, Stuffed ‘Santa’ Strawberries, Tortilla Roll-Ups, and Turtle Cheesecake. I make so many recipes that call for cream cheese (or an alternative) during the Holidays and all year long. I actually purchase cream cheese by the bulk, anywhere from 15-20 at a time. Yea for GO Veggie!!

    67. My kids would absolutely love this! This would be a great after school snack for them.

    68. a chocolate cheese cake
