Pureed Pizza Cauliflower Dip

As I was thinking of what my next recipe would be, for some reason I wanted it to be something to do with pizza but I wasn't sure what yet. I told Tanner to go ahead and grab some turkey pepperoni at Walmart when he went this week (which he also randomly got me flowers-THAT GUY! ha). I started thinking about whether I wanted to do a high carb pasta pizza casserole for athletes or if I wanted to do a lower carb "weight loss" cauliflower pizza type recipe. I decided for the most part, people like to see the lower macro recipes just because we all know how to eat high carb. I mean really. hahaha! That's easy. 

So, then the decision was Cauliflower and I was going to make a casserole with cauliflower and pizza. I was thinking like layers almost like a lasagna, then I think my mom was the one that mentioned maybe making a dip and I was like A-HA! YES! So unique! So, that's where the idea came from.

So, this is an incredibly low calorie pizza dip. ENJOY! 

It was legit very good and we added garlic bagel crisps with it which was super salty and the perfect combo!!! Add a diet coke to the mix and CALL ME A HAPPY CAMPER!

Healthy Pumpkin Dip

Oh, how easy this recipe is and how short this blog will be and how much you are going to love this! There was someone on our retreat this weekend that had made this dip (but of course I knew it wasn't the healthy version) and my mind went A-HA! That's how I do most of my healthy recipes to be honest with you. I want everyone to know that I do create my own recipes as I would never like steal someone else's idea. I try to not look at healthy food blogs for inspiration because I never want to accidentally copy someone so normally I'm always thinking of ideas of things I could do to change non-healthy to healthy for the blog! :) Let's just get right to it because I'm so dang excited! 

INGREDIENTS: 

  • One container of fat free Cool whip 
  • One can of pumpkin puree
  • One box of sugar free vanilla pudding mix 

DIRECTIONS: 

  • THROW IT ALL TOGETHER IN A BOWL AND STIR! 

Tip #1: It's the actual powder mix of the pudding. You don't make the pudding. I added like a teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon to give it more of a spice flavor. 

Tip #2: After this sits in the fridge, it gets more flavor. The spice and pumpkin flavor comes out more, so if it's faint and light, it will get stronger.

MACROS: (This was a hard one to calculate)

One tablespoon should be around 2.6g C 0g F 0g P 

THINGS IT'S GREAT WITH: 

  • Clearly in mini pumpkin pie containers 

The macros on these are 4.5g F 13g C 0g P so they aren't the best for their size, but this is such a delicious combo!

  • Cinnamon crackers

I wish I knew the brand but I could have sworn it was from Trader Joes, however you could make your own and I know they have some cinnamon sugar sticks. The combo of light fluffy dip with cinnamon cranky stick-I.Can't.Even.

  • Apple slices

I thought I'd throw this in here because it's unexpected but a great taste combo. It's such a sweet healthy treat! :) 

As always, let me know if you make it! I'd love to see on instagram or facebook so tag me pretty please! :)
