Sweet potato and cashew nut dip

We love boosting our dips with as much goodness as possible while still delivering a tasty snack! Baking the sweet potato gives an irresistible natural sweetness that we just love. The fun element of ‘dipping’ encourages kids to eat raw vegetable sticks as their ‘dippers’ without even realising it. Dips also make a really good sandwich base when used instead of butter.


Nutrition Note: Slow releasing carbohydrates, protein, monounsaturated fatty acids, fibre and health promoting antioxidants  – this is a nutritious and satisfying dip sure to become a favourite.
