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!

  2. Ashley (The Vegetable Life) says

    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!

  3. 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 😉 .

  4. 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…

  5. 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!

  6. 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*

  7. 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 :).

  8. 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

    • 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!

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      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!)

  9. Julia (The Veggie Side) says

    That stuff looks way to good to use as a dip! I think I would have to pour it on stuff…bananas, strawberries oatmeal, my face! (kidding). Seriously, how about using it in a fruit salad? ummmm….now I’m hungry!

  10. Brandi says

    Oh wow. I would have never ever thought of making a chocolate chip cookie dip. Very interesting, but in a good way. I’d most likely dip bananas in it…or maybe mix it in with some granola, or in my oatmeal.

  11. Heidi says

    I think strawberries seems like an awesome choice – or maybe apple slices until berries are back in season!
    Could be awesome on top of a vegan vanilla or angel food cake

  12. ruby red says

    I am so glad Hungry Hippie Girl brought that recipe to you! Your version looks and sounds absolutely delish! It is so pretty the way you swirled it in the bowl. I’ve never heard of cookie dough dip either! Reminds me of your cookie dough oats I made every day straight for months…

  13. Brian says

    I notice in your posts you seem to use the microwave a lot. I’ve read that microwaving depletes food of its nutrients and may even cause harm because of electromagnetic radiation. Just wondering if you have any health concerns about using it or where you stand on the topic.

    You rock.

    Eek, that picture made me drool, Katie! This sounds soo good. It’s pretty much your cheesecake mousse recipe with chocolate chips, correct? Thankfully I have a tub of Tofutti that I haven’t completely annihilated yet. I know how I will use it now. 🙂
