Vitamix Monday: White Bean Dip

White Bean Dip

Kidney Beans are loaded with fibre making them a superstar when it comes to lowering cholesterol as well as preventing blood sugar level spikes. These qualities make this super bean a good choice for those with diabetes or hypoglycaemia.

Kidney beans may also increase your energy levels by restoring iron levels. This is a great alternative to red meat (also very high in iron) as kidney beans are low in calories and virtually fat free! Try this white bean dip with raw veggies, rice crackers or use it as a spread on a pita or wrap.
