Are you hosting a party or having friends over to watch the game? If so, you'll want to have plenty of low carb snack foods.
One of my favorite things to snack on is pork rinds and dip. I like it so much, I have to watch my portions.
I decided to change things up for a recent party. This time, I served vegetables and a dill veggie dip with cream cheese.
We were celebrating my husband's birthday. It wasn't a milestone. Just an opportunity to get together.
A lot of people buy those pre-made vegetable trays. However, the ingredients listed is less than desired.
Have you ever looked on the label? The dips may be low carb, but there's a lot of unnecessary additives.
It's so easy to make your own dip. There's no reason to buy it.
You should be able to make this easy dill veggie dip with cream cheese in about five minutes.
Te recipe just requires an electric hand mixer. It ensures the cream cheese gets blended in well with the sour cream and mayo.
Speaking of mayo, you need to watch the pre-made ones too. I only use avocado mayo or a homemade mayonnaise.
I stay away from the seed oils. They go rancid quickly. When I make my own, I use olive oil, MCT oil, avocado oil, coconut oil or a mix of oils.
For this dill veggie dip with cream cheese, I used store bought avocado mayonnaise.
Of course, any mayo will work so don't feel that you have to use the same one that I do.
And, if you aren't into sour cream, plain whole milk yogurt is good substitute.
If you have a multi-function Instant Pot with the yogurt feature, it's easy to make your own yogurt. just take a look at the yogurt making method I use.
