Dairy Free Cinnamon Apple Dip

 Dairy Free Cinnamon Apple Dip

     I think of this recipe every Fall when apple season starts. The first time I made it was when my husband and I were first married. We would have his two younger sisters over once a week for "movie night" which sometimes meant we watched a movie but it was also my opportunity to try out new recipes on them. I remember my sis-in-law Katie loved this dip so much. I kept that in mind, and since feeding people is my love language, I decided to keep making it for her. Her fiancé has a dairy allergy so I wanted to try out the recipe with dairy free cream cheese to see if it would still work. I think it's just as good, if not better! Make sure you use Day brand cream cheese, in my opinion the other dairy free cream cheese brands leave a very strange and salty aftertaste so they don't work well in sweet dishes. One of the things I love about this dip is how you can switch out some ingredients and it will still taste great. If you can have dairy feel free to use cream cheese. If you need it to be lower carb use Swerve brown sugar. You also can use this as a dip for gluten free graham crackers or any other fruit! 

Dairy Free Cinnamon Apple Dip


1 8 oz package Daiya Dairy Free Cream Cheese ( do not use Kite Hill brand)
1/2 cup coconut or brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp ground cinnamon


1) In a large bowl combine the cream cheese and brown sugar using an electric mixer until smooth and glossy. This will take about 3-5 minutes. You want the brown sugar to combine very well so the dip is not gritty.

2) Add the vanilla and cinnamon and mix for another 30 seconds. 

3) Serve with sliced apples. 

Store leftovers in the fridge in a sealed container for up to 5 days. 

* You can use regular cream cheese if you can have dairy.
* You can sub 1/2 cup Swerve brown sugar to make this a sugar free dip.
