Silky Peanut Butter Dip is simply peanut butter that has been thinned out with tofu. Now wait! Don’t freak out~ tofu may be foreign to you (I certainly don’t eat it on a regular basis), however I urge you to give it a chance, just at least for this recipe. What is tofu exactly anyway?
Tofu is a food made of condensed soy milk that is pressed into solid white blocks. It originated in China, and the process is quite similar to how cheese is made.
Silky Peanut Butter Dip is made by blending peanut butter, soft tofu, a little honey and lime together in a food processor until smooth. The tofu takes on the taste of the peanut butter (tofu barely has any taste of it’s own anyway) and spreads the calories and fat out. Silky Peanut Butter Dip just tastes awesome!
If you’ve never tried tofu before, don’t worry, I never had either until recently. If you’re wondering where to find it in the grocery store, it’s usually in the produce section somewhere because it needs to be refrigerated. Just a little tip there. And you’ll want to use silken or soft tofu for this recipe, not firm or extra firm tofu.
I am really pushing to eat healthier in my own life, so you’ll probably notice an uptick in the amount of healthy recipes I’ll be sharing in the near future. I’m particularly trying to avoid processed sugar and sweets generally. Quitting sugar altogether isn’t for me (moderation in all things is my healthy food motto); I sure do admire the self discipline it must take to achieve that goal; I flat out don’t have it.Print
