Protein Packed French Onion Dip & a Baby Party!

This weekend was pretty packed of festivities (which is always a good thing!)

A good friend that I work with has the most adorable daughter and she turned 1 this past week! To celebrate, she had a party at her house with snacks, games, and plenty of wine! Who knew one year old parties could be so fun?

I wanted to bring something along to add to the snacks and thought a healthy, but old party favorite would be the perfect solution.

I didn’t get to snap a picture when the dip and veggies were all presented well, but after pictures sometimes work better! Now you are able to see, and not need to trust me when I say that this dip was a huge hit.

I was asked for the recipe by numerous people and always received the same shocked look on their face when I told them how simple and healthy it was. “That’s all?? But it taste just like the unhealthy stuff!” Seemed to be the overall response. Which, to be completely honest, is exactly what I am going for when cooking. I love the staple comfort foods and finding ways to make them simple and healthy. There is no better compliment than someone assuming my food is unhealthy, which typically stands for “tastes better”. 😉

The standard recipe for french onion dip is 1 cup mayonnaise, 1 cup sour cream, and 1 packet of french onion soup mix. Not here!

All you need:

  • *1 packet of French Onion Soup Mix
  • *1 container (17.6 oz) of nonfat Greek Yogurt; I used Fage Total 0%

Yep, that is all! 

This dip is full of protein, healthy fats, and cuts the calories in half!

I paired this with sliced cucumbers, baby carrots, and sliced green bell peppers. I also brought a bag of Ruffles, because Ruffles are the best things everrrr paired with French Onion Dip.

What’s your favorite party dip?

Happy birthday, Yaya!
