5 Recipes for Healthy Greek Yogurt Dips & Spreads

Ridiculously Simple & Delicious Recipes to Cut Calories & Add Flavor

Spreads and dips often pack a staggering amount of (hidden) calories, and easily derail what would otherwise be a healthy meal or snack. But going spread-less or dip-less can make us resent eating healthy. Enter Greek yogurt to the rescue! It’s loaded with an obscene amount of protein, low in calories, and its delicious thick consistency makes it a perfect substitute for other creamy, but higher calorie ingredients. 


                  

Honey Mustard Spread*
1/2 cup Chobani Non-Fat Plain Greek Yogurt
1 ½ Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp honey

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and stir (crazy easy). Tastes great spread on savory sandwiches. 


                  

Sweet Creamy Cinnamon Dip
1 (6oz) container nonfat Greek yogurt
¼ tsp vanilla extract
¼ tsp ground cinnamon, or to taste
Stevia powder, to taste (or whatever your favorite sweetener is)
1 apple, freshly sliced (optional, for dipping)

Combine and stir yogurt, vanilla, cinnamon and stevia together in a small bowl. Either chill or serve immediately. Use apple slices to dip (or other fresh fruits, pita or bagel chips, etc.).


                  Wasabi sauce

Chobani Wasabi Sauce*
1/2 cup Chobani Non-Fat Plain Greek Yogurt
1/2 ripe avocado, peeled and mashed
2-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and finely grated
1 tsp wasabi paste
1/2 tsp low-sodium soy sauce
1/2 tsp kosher salt

In a small bowl, whisk together Chobani, avocado, ginger, wasabi, soy sauce and salt. Cover and chill. Goes great on salmon, tuna, scallops, and steamed veggies like broccoli and asparagus.


                  

Pamela's Yummy Yogurt Spread & Dip**
7 oz cup of 2% Greek yogurt
¾ - 1 Tbsp of fresh cilantro, finely minced
¾ - 1 Tbsp of chives, finely minced
1 clove fresh garlic, finely minced
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive
