Healthy Onion Dip? Is there such a thing? Yes, and here’s as close as you’re going to get.
For all my clean eating and Whole 30 ways, there are a few trashy things I can’t get away from no matter how hard I try. Dip made with Lipton onion soup mix is one of them. I think it’s because it just reminds me of my childhood. A mainstay whenever there was a party. Onion dip and Ruffles.
And while I would love to indulge full-force into a straight-up sour cream and onion soup mix version, I really try not to.
But eating in a healthy manner doesn’t always have to be about giving up things that you love. Or things that are bad for you.
Sometimes it’s just about finding a healthier way to indulge.
And this is that.
“Healthy” Onion Dip.
Healthy in quotes, because, let’s get real. We’re still using a package of onion soup mix.
But that’s ok.
I swapped out the sour cream for Greek yogurt.
Added a bit of mayo (try this homemade version, if you haven’t already).
The onion soup mix.
Mix and enjoy.
Greek yogurt, of course, has a bit of a tang to it. If that bothers you, you can always start by using half Greek yogurt, and half sour cream (use Breakstone’s 1/3 less fat), and work your way towards going whole hog.
Just skip the chips.
But I bet you knew that already.
Hungry for more healthy dips?
This version of Hot Artichoke Dip is a healthier version that you will love (we do!).
So simple and so good, when you want to indulge, this Hot Bacon & Cheese Dip is the way to go.
