Vegan Chocolate Fruit Dip

The 100-Calorie, High-Protein Chocolate Treat Your Body Is Craving

While slices of crunchy apple and fresh strawberries are sweet enough on their own, isn't everything better with chocolate? You can spruce up your basic snack by pairing it with this smooth and mousse-like chocolate dip. Made with almonds, chickpeas, and dates, it offers fiber and protein, but is much lower in sugar than if you noshed on a couple squares of dark chocolate.

Your food processor makes whipping this dip up a breeze, so it's perfect for an after-dinner treat or to make for a small dinner party. The creamy texture and robust flavor of this chocolate hummus will appeal to anyone's taste buds, and you'll wonder if you'll ever be able to eat fruit alone again.

Looks absolutely delicious! I would use honey instead of maple syrup though. http://lifeandcity.tumblr.com
