Zucchini Cashew Ranch Dip

To cut down on the amount of calories in this dip, we used raw zucchini as the base instead of nuts. If you want to snack on some raw carrot or celery sticks, this is a great dip to use.

Instructions

  1. Add all of the ingredients, except the parsley, green onion, sea salt, and pepper, to a food processor and blend until you get a smooth and creamy consistency.
  2. Stop blending and add the remaining ingredients, blending on low to lightly chop the herbs. Taste the dip and adjust seasonings if necessary.
  3. Refrigerate for about 20 minutes before serving.

Notes:

If you have a Vitamix you do not have to soak the cashews or the dates or use the almond milk, but if using another blender or food processor that is lower powered it is highly recommended to make this dip easier to blend.
