Are you hosting a party? Tailgating? Binge watching Netflix? Or just in need of some not so terrible snacks? I have the perfect one for you! I came up with this healthy protein chip dip recipe yesterday and it was AMAZING!
Seriously guys, it’s TWO ingredients, high protein, low carb, and low fat! It really doesn’t get easier (or more delicious).
This is a recipe to pull out any time you have company or just need something that tastes unhealthy but isn’t.
Now, to be fair, this dip is paired with potato chips which aren’t the most healthy, but it’s all about balance. Because we are replacing the fatty sour cream that we would normally use in this dip, we can afford to have a few more chips. It works. Plus, you can pick up the Oven Baked Ruffles and it’s really not so bad..
Healthy Chip Dip
Next, just ignore that the recipe calls for sour cream and pick up some cottage cheese instead! Bam! Low fat, high protein chip dip.
And as my husband pointed out last night, cottage cheese is a slow digesting protein, so it is perfect to eat before bed if you’re a late night Netflix watcher like us 😉
QUICK NOTE: In our opinion, Darigold brand cottage cheese is the best tasting brand for this recipe.
- 2 1/2 cups Darigold 2% Cottage Cheese
- 1 packet Laura Scudder's Green Onion Dip Mix
- Pour Cottage Cheese into a food processor and puree until smooth.
- Pour into a bowl.
- Add dip mix and stir until well mixed.
- Serve cold with chips
Darigold cottage cheese tastes the best for this.
