- Category: dessert
- Method: blended
- Cuisine: American
- 1 cup low sodium black beans, drained and rinsed
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 2 tbsp cocoa powder (I like dark cocoa powder)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup cottage cheese
- 2 tbsp milk of choice
- 2 tbsp chocolate chips, melted
- In a high-powered blender or food processor, blend together all ingredients until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides as necessary. Add more milk if until you want a thinner consistency.
- Scoop dip into a bowl and serve with sliced fruit, pretzels, or graham crackers.
- Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
- Depending on the speed and power of your blender or food processor, this dip may take a little while to get completely smooth. Just keep blending, it will get there! Stop as needed to scrape down the sides with a spatula, and add more milk if necessary to get a thinner consistency. (I use this Cuisinart food processor, this Vitamix, or this KitchenAid blender)
- Add the melted chocolate last, and place it on top of the black beans (if they are room temperature) so that it doesn't harden again before you blend it.
- Canned black beans tend to be softer than beans cooked from dry, so the dip will get smoother with canned beans.
