A good dip is endlessly useful. Of course, it’s great for get-togethers (including micro-gatherings), but it’s just as useful for meal prepping for the week. You can pair it with your favorite veggies for a midday pick-me-up, slather some onto sandwiches for a flavor boost, or give new life to last night’s leftovers. We’ve rounded up some of the creamiest, tastiest, dairy-free dips we could find: They’re dairy-free. Think zesty vegan queso, savory pumpkin hummus, and and a vibrant beet dip that’s guaranteed to lift your spirits.

1. Savory Pumpkin Hummus from Once Upon a Pumpkin

If ever there’s a time to make pumpkin hummus, it’s right now. The pumpkin puree makes this super-creamy, and it also has beta-carotene, an antioxidant that benefits your heart, skin, and nails. Top with actual pumpkin seeds for some crunch and extra nutrition.

2. Vegan Queso from The Toasted Pine Nut

This queso is made with nutritional yeast to give it that cheesy flavor, plus plenty of protein and B vitamins. It tastes just like cheese, but it won’t irritate your stomach. Pair it with tortilla chips and veggies.

3. Spinach Artichoke Dip from Paleo Running Momma

Yes, it’s possible: Vegan spinach artichoke dip exists and we are here for it. This dip leans on cashews and nutritional yeast for that creamy texture and cheesy flavor and packs in 5 grams of protein and 2 grams of fiber per serving. Bonus: It’s also paleo.

4. Sun-Dried Tomato and Basil White Bean Dip from Salt & Lavender

Packed with protein, fiber, and lyopene, an antioxidant that improves skin and heart health, this silky dip comes together in just 10 minutes. Add some lemon for a bit of zest, and drizzle it with olive oil.

5. Chickpea-less Beet Hummus from RACHLmansfield

This beet hummus is beautiful (hello, it is pink), so it’s the perfect springtime dip with a pop of color. And it’s good for you, as beets are high in fiber and antioxidants to lower inflammation and even aid in muscle recovery post-workout. Plus, there’s zero oil or dairy, and it is done in 10 minutes. Use walnuts for nutty texture and heart-healthy omega-3 fats.
