Meet the queen of healthy dips and spreads

Is there such a thing as a healthy dip? Dips have a real way of making almost anything taste that much better. A veggie plate? There’s a dip for that. Chips? There’s a dip for that. Chicken or steak? There’s a dip for that. Sure, carrot sticks are cool but let’s not pretend that it’s not an excuse to dip into some cool, creamy ranch. Bread slices and crackers are great but everyone knows that the reason they disappear at parties is because of the delicious dips you get to use them with.

Healthy dips to buy

Plant-Based Dips: Healthy Dipping Sauce

The not-so-secret ingredient in our plant-based dips is nuts (cashews and almonds, that is, not that the ingredients themselves are eccentric in any way…wow, that’s confusing). We take almonds and cashews and blend them to make a consistency so smooth that you won’t believe it’s not dairy. Then, to top it off, we combine this miracle texture with the highest quality herbs and spices to create dips that are so fantastic that you may end up questioning how you ever lived without it!

Hummus: The Healthy Store Bought Veggie Dip

Even after over 600 years of history, traditional hummus is still one of the most nutritious dips to buy, because it is made up of whole, simple, and nutritious ingredients. With just four basic ingredients, all of which are healthy on their own, hummus has nothing to hide. Garbanzo beans, tahini, extra-virgin olive oil, salt, and lemon juice: Each of those ingredients has great health benefits.

Does a Healthy Dip Really Exist?

Now you may be thinking to yourself, “How could this even be possible? A dip that tastes as good as the original but without weird preservatives and actually healthy?!” We know it seems too good to be real, but the truth of the matter is we use high-quality ingredients that are hand-picked for nourishing our bodies from the inside-out.

Healthy Dips to Buy: Look at the Label

Unfortunately, today’s market being what it is, you still have to check the label. When you read the label at your next shopping trip, look for hummus made with extra virgin olive oil (read about the health benefits here). Also, look for a healthy dipping sauce without natural flavors (these are generally isolated from food compounds to enhance taste without adding nutritious value.  They are essentially a cover-up for companies that want to trick your taste buds) or preservatives (such as potassium sorbate, sodium benzoate, or potassium benzoate).

Our high-pressure processing seals in flavor and keeps your hummus and dips fresh, leaving no need for those chemicals.

Garbanzo beans: the base for hummus, healthy dips for celery

We Use these Nourishing, High-Quality Ingredients

The ingredients in hummus and our plant-based dips are super simple. Here’s a quick breakdown of some of the ingredients in our dips and their nutritional benefits, so you can see for yourself why our dips and hummus beats out other cold dips for vegetables. Our plant-based dips and hummus are so much more than just a healthy dip for carrots and celery. Packed with vitamins, minerals, and nutrients your body needs, hummus is widely regarded as a superfood (and so are cashews and almonds – the base of our plant-based dips) in and of itself!

Garbanzo beans

Garbanzo Beans

Also called chickpeas, garbanzo beans are a super healthy foundation for any meal. A quick study of garbanzos’ nutritional values shows that they are high in muscle-building protein and dietary fiber, which are prime ingredients in healthy dips and spreads. Not only that, garbanzos are chock full of healthy vitamins and minerals, including calcium, magnesium, iron, manganese, folate, copper, phosphorus, and zinc. There are numerous health benefits!

Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)

WARNING: Not all hummus brands contain EVOO, so check your label! Only the best healthy dips for vegetables use EVOO, which is one of the healthiest sources of Omega-3 fatty acids in the world. Don’t fall for the “regular olive oil” and “canola oil” trap! There are many health benefits of this incredible oil.

Olive oil
Sesame seeds


A paste made from ground sesame seeds, tahini is full of all the nutrients that make sesame seeds so healthy. These amazing nutrients are part of what makes hummus such a healthy dipping sauce for vegetables—and they include complex carbs and protein, thiamin, iron, phosphorus, and copper. All these have incredible benefits for your health.

Lemon Juice

Everyone knows lemons are full of vitamin C, so we know that’s good for you! However, you may not know that lemons also contain vitamins, B6, A, and E, as well as folate, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc, niacin, and riboflavin.  In addition, all citrus fruits contain citric acid, a mild acid that actually boosts your health in a few unexpected ways.

Cashews and almonds: the base of healthy dips for chips

Cashews & Almonds

Cashews and almonds are powerhouses of nutrition. We’ve written a whole post dedicated to singing their health benefits!

Cold Pressure Processing

Another thing that sets our hummus apart from other brands is that it’s Cold Pressure Processed (CCP). This revolutionary process of cold pressure processing allows for food sterilization without subjecting it to high temperatures or chemical additions.  By subjecting the food in-container to extremely high pressures, harmful bacteria are crushed while preserving the integrity of vitamins and minerals. More nutrients = a healthier mind and body.
