Because we travel, at least monthly if not more often, 1 1/2-2 hours to get our groceries we have discovered some really tasty on-plan options to grab at the grocery store. Did you know the grocery store is the ultimate fast-food restaurant? It’s true!
One thing in particular is an almond-based dip at Walmart with a very descriptive name outlining a common name for female canines. Apt description, but it makes me cringe when I post the pictures on my THM Journey App because I don’t say the word in my own home, as a descriptor.
I had to try and recreate it, if only to be able to stop posting the picture of the title from the grocery store version, right? According to my husband, and spicy-food-loving second son, I nailed it in the flavor department!

- 1 Cup Blanched Almonds or Raw Sunflower Seeds
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin
- 2 teaspoons chipotle powder
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 4 teaspoons Nutritional Yeast
- 4-8 Tablespoons water
- 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
Soak your sunflower seeds overnight with cool water, covering them by at least 2 inches. Then, drain off the soaking water the following day when you are ready to prepare the dip. Place all ingredients and seasonings in a food processor or high-powered blender. Scrape the sides down frequently, and blend until smooth.
You can add water by the Tablespoon to thin it out to your liking.
