Vegan 7-Layer Dip

You may want to stop everything you’re doing right now and make this vegan 7-layer dip. It’s become a favorite in this house. You could almost call it a staple. It’s SO good and pretty easy to make, even when you make the layers (like the beans, the sour cream, the guacamole, and the cheese) from scratch. But you can easily make these layers with store-bought vegan foods too. So let’s open a bag of tortilla chips and follow the delicious journey to the perfect vegan 7-layer dip.

Cashew Sour Cream

Did you catch my Facebook Live video the other day? If not, no big deal. The replay is up and you’re more than welcome to enjoy the awkwardness of my very first FB live. Well, the first one that actually posted correctly. It’s for a meal I seriously love but can’t take an appealing photo of to save my life. Maybe if I cut and stuffed the sweet potato, it’d look prettier. But I smash it. Because why not? Anyway, I top sweet potato and beans with this creamy, cool, tasty cashew sour cream! It’s super easy to make, so let’s go!

We make this in our house at least 2x a month. It lasts about 7-10 days, which is nice. It’s the perfect topping to most things we eat: baked potatoeschilinachostacosburritossalads, and more! We love using it to make mashed potatoes and dips for fries. It’s versatile, and the only thing between you and this deliciousness is putting everything in the blender and letting it run. Easy peasy! You won’t regret it.

Two-Ingredient Chocolate Frosting

If you aren’t eating dates, you’re missing out. Seriously, dates are nature’s candy. They’re sweet, rich, caramel in fruit form. They never feel like they’re healthy or even remotely good for me when I eat them because of how sugary sweet they are. But they’re SO good! Nutritious too! They’re an excellent part of a plant-based diet. So let’s use them to our advantage and make a delicious chocolaty two-ingredient frosting sweetened only with dates!

Simple Guacamole

I make some super simple guacamole, but I always get compliments on it. Since I’m not a big “chunks in food” person, I use minimal ingredients, and it makes a smooth dip for your chip. 🙂 But there are lots of things you can add to play around with it, so it’s easily customizable though delicious on its own, seeing as it’s just avocado, lemon juice, and garlic powder.

Creamy, garlicky, lemony guacamole that's easy to make and perfect for dipping, spreading, and enjoying! #fruitsohard #vegan #glutenfree #avocado #guacamole
