I don't know about you, but I have wasted SO much money and so many ingredients on these healthy, macro friendly, protein recipes on line that end up tasting like total crap.
I make a protein cake. It sucks. (Edited to add: I concocted my own protein cake recipes and you can find them HERE in my recipes section! Yay!) I make banana protein pancakes. They suck. It's funny because all of these YouTuber's will swear they have THE BEST recipes, but I'll follow them to a T and they still turn out nasty.
So I'm over at my friends house doing a photo shoot for Liv & Co. and she offers me this dip and carrots.
2 ingredients. Only 2 freaking ingredients. Who knew?! 1 17.6 oz. tub of greek yogurt (2%- I like Fage brand) mixed with 1 packet of Hidden Valley Fiesta Ranch Dips Mix.
If you're anything like me, you're probably thinking, "plain greek yogurt? Ewe..". Ya, I thought that, too. The taste of greek yogurt is SO overpowering that it normally overtakes anything you try to mix it with, but not this dip!
We initially used Grimway Farms carrot chips (but any carrot will do) to dip it in (so super healthy), but then we bought some raddish chips, then tried it with broccoli florets, and even Tostitos® SCOOPS!®. If you've ever spent hours slaving away on layered Mexican dips, or spent heaps of money on veggie trays, this will take you 5 minutes to stir up and tastes just as good, if not better, and it's healthy.
You can eat the crap out of these guilt free! The dip alone has 23g of protein per serving, not to mention the probiotics and overabundance of health benefits carrots and other veggies have to offer. Now, I always have a tub of this Southwest Dip in my refrigerator to nibble on throughout the day. What an excellent snack to take to work.
I even took this to a party recently and made a friend try it before I told her what was in it, and she swore it was sour cream based. Nope!
