Quick and Easy Avocado Ranch Dip- 62 calories

My toddler loves this dip as much as I do, serve with some veggie slices or on top of a salad for a quick protein fix. Greek yogurt is a great swap for sour cream, mayonnaise and buttermilk. This is a thicker sauce then what you would get in a bottle but just as creamy.

Makes 2 cups-

2 cups Non Fat Greek Yogurt
2 Garlic Cloves shredded with a cheese grater
3 tbsp chopped Chives
2 tbsp Dried Parsley
1/2 tsp Dried Dill
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Black Pepper
1 tbsp White Vinegar
1 Avocado smashed with the back of a fork

Add all ingredients into a large Tupperware container or jar and mix well, place in fridge for at least an hour before serving.

Compare to Ranch dressing you can get at the store, a ¼ cup of the store bought has 170 calories, 15 grams of fat and only 1 gram of protein plus tons of preservatives and chemicals. Go all natural and save yourself some calories, fat and add tons of protein. Dig in!

A ¼ cup of dressing has:
Calories: 62
Fat: 2.5
Fiber: 1
Protein: 6
Carbs: 4

Here is my little girl, we regularly do a living room picnic with a Disney movie marathon. She ate the majority of the veggie plate I put out for the two of us. You can find fun ways to get veggies into the mouths of your kids, be creative sometimes just a change of venue will work.
