Need suggestions on what to dip? I bought cinnamon graham crackers and apples, which perfectly balanced the dip with an added crunch.

If you want to make this recipe even healthier, you can skip the maple syrup and adjust the amount of dates you add to control the sweetness. Instead of whipped cream cheese, you can use light cream cheese or go for a non-dairy option.
