Looking for a dip with a little bit of zip? How about one that you can load up on instead of measuring by the tablespoon? Here is a great recipe for Spicy Dill Yogurt Dip. This also make a great salad dressing! If you like a thinner dressing, just whisk in a little bit of milk or try this recipe with regular plain yogurt instead of Greek!
This dip is measured out for 1/2 cup of yogurt, so you can easily multiply it as many times as you need for your next gathering!
Spicy Dill Yogurt Dip
1/2 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon dill weed, dried
1 teaspoon spicy brown mustard
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic, fresh minced
1/2 teaspoon agave nectar
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional or can add more if you like)
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together until smooth and well combined.
This afternoon I had some time to play around in the kitchen and was in the mood for snacking. Here is a recipe remake that is sure to keep your tastebuds happy! I have always had a weakness for creamy dips and spreads at parties and barbecues so I decided to make one that I could feel good about eating. Typically this vegetable dip package calls for mayonaise and sour cream, but I used plain greek non-fat yogurt, which is only 60 calories in 1/2 cup and double the protein of regular yogurt! Plus, greek yogurt is thicker than regular yogurt, so the texture stays very close to regular spinach dip. I have been enjoying this dip with special k multi-grain crackers or celery sticks, but torn french or Hawaiian bread is another crowd pleaser.
1 pkg knorr vegetable dip mix
3 cups non fat greek yogurt, plain (I prefer Greek Gods)
1 can water chestnuts, finely chopped
1 pkg frozen spinach, thawed, all excess water squeezed out
Place all ingredients in mixing bowl and stir until well combined. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
Are you looking for a guilt free way to indulge this summer? Here is a cool and easy recipe that can even count as a serving of fruit for the day!
3 large bananas, peeled and frozen
3 cups frozen berries (i used mixed strawberry, blueberry, and blackberry)
1/4 tsp cinnamon (optional)
Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth and creamy, stopping to scrap down the sides of the bowl occasionally. It will be the consistency of soft serve ice cream. Enjoy! (for a real treat top with spoonful of your favorite greek yogurt)
