This super easy and healthy avocado dip with greek yogurt is full of flavor and is the perfect game day dip recipe! Pantry spices are mixed with avocado and greek yogurt for a take on a traditional ranch dressing recipe, but with more omega-3’s and less saturated fat! It’s good for you, and SO delicious, so you won’t feel bad if you eat the entire bowl!
What Does This Healthy Chip Dip Taste Like?
The mild, yet tasty flavor of avocado meets the tangy sourness of the plain greek yogurt well. To balance out the tang, spices such as dried minced onion, garlic powder and salt are tossed in with bright and earthy dill. Fresh squeezed citrus juice continues to help develop the flavor, and you are left with a bright and creamy avocado dip, perfect for scooping with appetizers.
Do You Need A Blender To Make It?
No, a blender is not required to make this dip, but it does help. Have you ever made guacamole? Usually the ingredients are tossed in a bowl and mashed using a fork or potato masher. You have the control to make it as chunky or as smooth as you desire. This easy healthy dip recipe is the same way!
If you have a blender or food processor and want the dip to be extra smooth, than toss everything in, press blend and watch your creamy masterpiece come together!
Alternatively, if you enjoy a few chunks of avocado on your chips, or if you just don’t want to deal with the extra dishes that using a blender would cause, toss all of the ingredients in a bowl and mash them with a fork!
