Did you know..

Did you know that healthy food can be naughty? Try this dip and you will never believe it isn’t full of heavy cream and sugar!

It’s all thanks to a comment from a reader. She asked if I could healthify: this non-vegan recipe.

I’d never even thought of the idea of cheesecake dip before. How decadent does that sound? As soon as I saw her comment, I had to try it out. Admittedly, I haven’t tasted the real version; but my “healthy” version tastes pretty darn incredible!

Chocolate-Chip Cheesecake Dip

(can be gluten and sugar-free!)

  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup cream cheese spread, such as Tofutti (180 grams)
  • 4 NuNaturals stevia packets or 1/4 cup sugar (or more, if desired)
  • 1 cup silken tofu (or 1 cup more cream cheese spread) (If you use Morinu silken-firm, even tofu haters say they can’t taste it in this recipe!) (200 grams)
  • chocolate chips
  • tiny dash salt

Blend all of the ingredients, except the chocolate chips, together. Then add in your chocolate! Use this as a dip, or eat it as pudding or mousse. Makes about 2 cups.

Or, you could make the more-decadent version: Naughty Chocolate Chip Dip. (The “not-as-healthy” version would probably make for a killer vegan party dessert!

    Holy cookie dough! This may be the most delicious thing I’ve ever seen! And the photographs are SO gorgeous :). I especially like the first one :).
    I want to dive right in!

    1. Erica says:

      Oh my word, ME TOO!

  2. Oh man that looks SO good! Can’t believe you managed to make cookie dough dip vegan AND healthy! You are a GENIUS Katie! 😀

  3. Disturbed says:

    My whole body! I wouldn’t even need anything to dip into that-just eat it straight out of the bowl. Though it might be good to eat on my morning oats.

    1. Erica says:

      Oh wow, I’m doing that. Chocolate chip cookie dough pudding oatmeal? Heck yes!

  4. Food Porn is right! That dip makes my mouth water just looking at it. I would probaby use a plain cookie such as a Nilla Wafer or something to really be able to taste the chocolate chips taste from the dip!!! I NEED TO TRY THIS ASAP!

  5. Jennifer JCD says:

    Huh, I’ve never heard of chocolate chip dip before. It looks yummy.

  6. Albizia says:

    Do I have to dip anything in it? Can’t I just eat it with a spoon? 😛

    Yesterday I found another recipe for raw cookie dough dessert but it was much different – the main ingredient was chocolate. You might like it 😉 .

    1. If it’s vegan and the main ingredient (or ANY ingredient) is chocolate, I’m pretty much guaranteed to like it! What could be bad? 😉

      1. Albizia says:

        Actually, it really is vegan 🙂 . I think I will try it very soon and will share it if tastes as good as it looks.

  7. Amanda says:

    Oh wow… I love dips and I love cookie dough. What a great recipe! I think i might have it with bananas or use ginger snaps for dipping. Or maybe just eat it by the spoonful…

  8. Leslie says:

    Woah, food porn extreme! I must make this. Somehow, though, I have no chocolate chips in the house! (Yes, I already went to my kitchen to start making it, that’s how good it looks!) So now you’re forcing me to go grocery shopping. I need cookie dough dip in my life!

  9. abby says:

    gahh get in my belly now!
    and katie, the photos are fantastic :). very professional looking.

  10. Brandie says:

    It’s like your whipped cream receipe with cocolate chips in it! Ack! Totally Yummers Katie!

    Though I must admit to wanting to try that Naughty version… I’ll stick wth the stevia and not the sugar *giggle*

  11. hippierunner says:

    Such good photos! I want this so bad!!

  12. Angie says:

    Katie! I never comment, but I have to today because you have just SAVED me!
    I have a party to attend on Friday, and I needed a GREAT vegan dessert to bring that would wow everyone. I wanted to do something more fancy than plain cookies, but I am not a cook. Now I know exactly what to bring! Thank you SO MUCH!!!

    Oh, and I’m bringing the naughty version :).

  13. Um, hello, yumminess!!! I’d love to dip in some apple slices!!! Or maybe some sality, crunchy pretzels… wonder if that’d make a good combo?!

    1. abby says:

      i’ll have to try that combo! i love pretzels :).

  14. I would totally just eat that plain.

  15. Fi says:

    hey katie, im making this tonight for dessert, being the culinary vegan amateur i am, ive a question, dya reckon if i could turn this recipe into cheesecake if i made a biscuit base and let it set in the fridge? if so, what base do u recommend? xx

    1. abby says:

      oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh i’m going to steal this idea if it works! katie, i wanna know too. chocolate chip cookie dough cheesecake? that sounds even better than dip! will either of you (katie or fi) let me know if it works? my belly needs to know! fi, that is a genius idea!

    2. Oh wow, Fi, that DOES sound amazing. And I REALLY want to know if it would work! I guess you can always try it, and if it doesn’t firm up, you can call it “Cookie Dough Cream Pie.” I soooo hope you try it, because I want to know how it works!!!
      (P.S. I agree with Abby: You are a genius!)

  16. oh and i would BATHE in this dip

    1. Fi says:

      ha, I lol’d at this, and im in a library! xx

    2. Hahahaha I have some Mexican Chocolate soap. Maybe you should use that in your cookie dough bath ;).

  17. Sarah C. says:

    Wow, I’m with everyone else. I need to make this ASAP! It looks so easy :).

  18. I definitely would not mind taking a swim in that dessert! I can’t find vegan cream cheese near me, have any ideas for a good substitute? Thanks girl 🙂

  19. Camille says:

    I would start by dipping my head in and then eating my way out. I figured that’s what you meant 🙂
