Roasted Red Pepper Yogurt Dip

Hi Everyone,

Have you ever tried those yogurt dips by OIKOS?  They are just so tasty, I love them!  However, I noticed the ingredients?  Most are not to bad, but it does contain sugar and I consume enough sugar, that I don’t want it in my dips, unless I am making a sweet dip.  So I decided to make my own Roasted Red Pepper Yogurt Dip.  Plus it is also cheaper to make your own!
Roasted Red Pepper Yogurt Dip
My dip has fewer calories, less carbs, less fat, less sodium and more protein then store-bought. Plus mine tastes better in my opinion. It’s light, refreshing, creamy and has the most wonderful roasted red pepper flavor without being overbearing.  Best part you can make this just a few minutes.

To make it all I used was plain Geek yogurt, one roasted pepper from the jar and some seasoning. Give a mix and you have delicious, guilt free yogurt dip. One key thing is the roasted peppers. I used Trader Joe’s Fire Roasted Peppers in the jar. I took one pepper, rinsed it and patted it dry and diced very small. I saved a little bit of the liquid from the jar and added it to dip. If you buy roasted red peppers from the jar, be sure to get the ones that are in water packed, not oil. As for the dip, it is simply perfect for dipping veggies in and I hate to say this, but salt and vinegar potato chips too! Darn those Chips! That was a treat! I love chips and dip, and they were there and so was I, so I dipped just a few and switched to carrots. :) Roasted Red Peppers Yogurt Dip

  9. Yum, Jennifer! This Mediterranean restaurant near me as a red pepper dip that I LOVE. Re-creating it at home as been on my bucket list for awhile. I really like your recipe, though, so maybe I’ll just make that and call it good :) haha.
