    While ‘snacking’ has gained a bad reputation over the years, it’s actually an important part of maintaining a healthy diet. Snacking can provide much needed energy during low periods of the day curb cravings and prevent overeating at meal times. Now of course not all foods are on the approved healthy snacks list but Vegan Tzatziki is.

    Vegan Tzatziki is a creamy delicious dip perfect for dipping and ideal for those on strict dairy-free and lactose-free diets. The dip itself is comprised of cashews, tahini and two cloves of garlic and goes well with fresh veggies such as carrots, celery or cucumbers.

    Ingredients
    1 cup cashews soaked for 2-4 hours

    1 cucumber, diced
    1 tbsp dill

    1/2 tbsp mint salt/pepper to taste

    Instructions
    1. Place cashews, lemon juice, tahini, garlic cloves, water, salt/pepper, into a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. I use a Thermomix or a Vitamix ?
