This Healthy Love Dip is a recreation from our favorite dip at Central Market. It’s made with healthier ingredients and is great for snacking!
Calling all Snapchatters! You can now follow along with me as I navigate my new life with a baby! Add me: slim_sanity 🙂
This is my first ever attempt at a Fourth of July recipe. And in true style for cookout season, I’m presenting a dip! Like I’ve done for recipes the last couple weeks with hummus and basil spread… What can I say? We like dips. Cause when I dip, you dip, we dip!
Yea that was cheesy. This dip is not though. Unless cream cheese counts?
Today we have another recipe recreation. Ya see, all these places have all these fancy and delicious dips. But their healthiness is a little in question, especially considering the amounts of said dips we probably eat in an afternoon. So of course I made it my mission to recreate them myself to ensure healthier, fresh ingredients!
Healthy love dip is recreated from Central Market. It’s been one of my favorites for a loooong time. Even though I never bought it myself, I know whose parties to go to in order to find it. 🙂 If you don’t live in Dallas I actually have no idea if you know what Central Market is or if you have access to one. I had never heard of it before moving here. But lucky for YOU, you don’t even need to go! Because the recipe for this delicious dip is just a few scrolls away.
So I mentioned I was attempting a Fourth of July dish… I was thinking a healthy love dip is perfect because it has tomatoes in it (red) and it could be served with cauliflower and radishes (white) and blue corn tortilla chips (blue). But looking at my pictures it’s more orange, cream and purple than anything so it doesn’t feel quite as patriotic as it did in my head. It’s actually probably better suited for Halloween, so we’ll have to remember that when October rolls around.
For now, let’s forget about it and take our carrot and tortilla chips for a spin!
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes
- 1 T minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon dried cilantro, or fresh cilantro packed
- 8 oz low-fat cream cheese
- ¾ cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt
- 3 tablespoons tomato paste
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- ¾ teaspoon garlic salt
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ¼ teaspoon cayenne
- Add cherry tomatoes, garlic and cilantro to a food processor. Process until tomatoes are almost pureed.
- Add Greek yogurt, tomato paste and half of the cream cheese. Process until cheese is mixed in.
- Add remaining cream cheese and seasonings. Process until completely mixed.
- Serve with veggies and chips!
