Butternut Veggie Dip (AIP, GAPS, Paleo, GF, DF)


Do you and/or your kids hate veggies?

Do you and/or your kids like dips?

If you answered yes to one or both of these, I might just have a solution for you!

No, i'm not just gonna tell you to buy a dip for your veggies... we've all thought of that and it only works for like a week and a half and then we go back to not eating veggies anymore.

No, instead, I suggest that your dip BE your veggies.

This dip, my dear friends, is nearly 100% veggie.

You can dip whatever you want in this bad boy, like siete chips, mary’s crackers or apple slices, you name it! Bonus points if you start dipping veggies into veggies! I love this dip with cucumber.

The recipe is AIP, GAPS, Paleo, Vegan, Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free so whip it up for your whole fam or bring it to your next potluck! EVERYONE can enjoy it!
