Creamy Zucchini Dip

So this is a take on the Zucchini Low Carb Hummus recipe.  However that recipe has a whopping 1776 calories (mostly due to the 1200 calories of tahini paste).  My version has 186 for the whole batch.  You could replace the PB2 powdered peanut butter with 2 Tbsp of actual peanut butter and add 145 calories to the total or (331 calories).

Creamy Zucchini Dip (186 calories)

2 medium skin on zucchini cut in chunks (73 calories)
4 garlic cloves (16 calories)
2 Tbsp fat free cream cheese (30 calories)
2 Tbsp fat free cottage cheese (20 calories)
2 Tbsp PB2 powdered peanut butter (45 calories)
1 lemon juiced (2 calories)
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp coarse kosher salt

Place all ingredients in a food processor and whirl until smooth.  Serve with raw veggies or some zucchini or radish chips.  Print Friendly and PDF
