There are so many celebrations in May: Cinco De Mayo, May Day, National Teacher Day, Mother’s Day, Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day and I’m sure millions will be celebrating a graduation day. If you are working towards that bikini bod for the summer, facing all these spring parties can be torture and it doesn’t have to be.

Here are fun, EASY and healthy dips that anyone can enjoy!

You can jazz them up to match the special occasion. Diving into this dip is much better than diving into frosting and sugary cake. The kids running around with sugar highs won’t be able to tell the difference and neither will you!

For the cookie dough dip, you will only need Truwhip and Cherrybrook Kitchen chocolate chip cookie mix. If you want to make this one gluten free, you’ll need to use a gluten free chocolate chip cookie mix. Whole Foods has a couple options in their baking section.

Add one cup of Truwhip to a mixing bowl. Make sure to leave the Truwhip in the fridge overnight to defrost.

-Mix a 1/3 cup of cookie mix with the Truwhip.

Top the dip with a couple dark chocolate chips for a little decoration! I think flag labels that say “cookie dough whip” would be cute on top! I’ll have to remember that for next time.

For the yummy brownie dip, you will need Simpy Organic’s cocoa brownie mix and Truwhip.

Add 1/3 cup of brownie mix to a mixing bowl with one cup of defrosted Truwhip and mix together.

Mix together and add a couple dark chocolate chips to the top. If there are no nut allergies at the party, add a couple walnuts on top too.

These dips are absolutely delicious. They could go with almost anything. I served mine with honey oat graham crackers and apples. For mothers day, I might make these to go with strawberry-banana fruit skewers.

Before I forget, here is the brand of graham crackers I use. Back to Nature golden honey oat graham crackers are my favorite. Graham crackers and frosting is a huge weakness of mine when I’m back home. This dip is a great frosting replacement. It would pair perfectly with cookies or cupcakes!
