4 Easy Greek Yogurt Veggie Dips

These four simple, healthy Greek yogurt veggie dips are low in calories, high in protein and made with real food ingredients.

The famous healthy snack of raw veggies and a delicious dip can do no harm, right? Wrong. While fresh veggies are always a safe bet, what you dip them in makes ALL the difference. Traditional veggie dips made with cream cheese, mayonnaise and sour cream can be high in calories, saturated fat and sodium – not ideal for a heart healthy diet. But with the simple swap of non-fat or low-fat plain Greek yogurt, you can transform your veggie dip into something magical. The creamy, flavorful ingredients in these homemade Greek yogurt veggie dips will have you coming back for more!

Health Benefits of Greek Yogurt Veggie Dips

Greek yogurt veggie dips are more than just yummy condiments – they’re a nutrition powerhouse of protein, probiotics and calcium.

  • Protein – A 6-ounce cup of non-fat or low-fat Greek yogurt packs a whopping 18-20 grams of protein. That’s equivalent to 3 eggs or 3 servings of almonds!
  • Probiotics – Yogurt contains live active cultures that help build up the healthy bacteria in your gut. The most common strains include S. Thermophilus, L Bulgaricus, L Acidophilus, Bifidus and L Casei.
  • Low Fat – 0% fat Greek yogurt varieties contain simply that – zero fat. Low-fat, 2% varieties can contain anywhere between 3 and 4 grams of total fat (1.5 to 3 gram of that from saturated fat) in a 6-ounce serving.
  • Low Calorie – At only about 100 calories per 6-ounce cup of non-fat Greek yogurt (or about 150 calories for low-fat) this tasty snack packs tons of nutrients into few calories – talk about nutrient dense!
  • Calcium – The amount of calcium in Greek yogurt varies by brand, but a 6-ounce serving can provide up to 20% of your daily calcium needs to keep your bones strong!
