Favorite Skinny Dip Ingredients

Posted Aug 15 2013 5:20am

Looking for ways to lighten your favorite dips with what I like to call “skinny dip ingredients?”

To me nothing says “party” like a great dip.  When I was a kid I fell in love with  onion dip  made with sour cream and Lipton onion soup mix. Do you remember it?  It was a party staple served with Fritos corn chips or potato chips.

My infatuation with dips continues today. They are easy to make. And the flavor combinations are endless. That’s why dips are my “go-to” appetizer choice for effortless entertaining.

Unfortunately, dips can be extremely high in fat and calories. That’s where dips made with “skinny dip ingredients” come in. Made lighter and healthier without sacrificing flavor, they are sure to please even the most picky palates.

Strategies for Using “Skinny Dip” Ingredients

An easy way to lower the fat and calories of your favorite creamy dips is to swap out some of all of the full-fat ingredients for low fat alternatives. Low fat mayonnaise for regular. Low fat sour cream or Nonfat Greek yogurt for regular sour cream. Non fat or reduced fat cream cheese for full fat. Pureed cottage cheese for mayonnaise or sour cream. You get the idea.

Pureed beans and roasted vegetables work well too.
