Skinny Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip
In celebration of Skinny Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip, I wrote us a song.
My oh my, what a dippity day Creamy ranch goodness heading our way And it’s totally guilt-free
So dip it away!
It’s not every dip that inspires me to connect with my inner Girl Scout and rewrite the words to “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah,” but this Skinny Ranch Dip has secret powers. It’s loaded with the classic ranch dressing flavor that has tricked children into eating vegetables and convinced pizza lovers to smother their slices in salad dressing.
I’m also not sure what it says about me that I chose to rewrite “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah” over Will Smith (“Gettin’ Dippy With It!”) or that other ’90s gem “Da Dip” (refresh: “I put your hand up on my hip; when I dip, you dip, we dip”). Perhaps I’m wholesome? Endlessly optimistic? Really love Disney sing-a-longs?
Skinny Ranch Dip is thick, creamy, and longs to be smeared on your sandwich or dunked with your chips and veggies. Best of all, it is actually good for you. Bye-bye fatty ranch dressing that negates every salad it touches. Hello protein-packed Skinny Ranch Dip!
As I shared back when I posted this Roasted Red Pepper Parmesan Dip, nothing makes me more skeptical than a dip that advertises itself as “skinny.” Most of the time, I’d rather have less of the real-deal than more of a low-fat dip that doesn’t satisfy.
Fortunately for us, a thick, dreamy base of plain Greek yogurt is the perfect vehicle for the addictive garlic, onion, and dill spices that create classic ranch flavor. Ben, who eats vegetables with the attitude most humans apply towards cough syrup—a necessary evil—ate a good chunk of this dip with carrots before I had even started the photographs.
Today, we dip our hearts out and load up on dairy + protein. I’d say that’s worth a song, wouldn’t you?
P.S. Mega apologies if (like me) you have “Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah” stuck in your head right now. We should sing a duet.
