Healthy Dip Recipe for Vegetables
Summer entertaining in my family means cooking outside as much as possible. I certainly don’t want to be stuck inside cooking when everyone else is outside enjoying the summer sun and beautiful weather.
I tend to choose a lot of fresh fruit and vegetable platters rather than making pasta salads and casseroles. .
Of course, when you have fresh vegetable platters, you need to have dip. You just have to.
Unfortunately, some dips are far from healthy and enjoying them too much is a great way to pack on a few extra inches around your hips.
What is the healthiest dip for veggies?
Many dips are mostly sour cream or cream cheese-based and while these are OK in small amounts, they can be high in fat in larger amounts.
This dip recipe combines cannellini beans with Greek yogurt which helps keep it lower in calories and fat than traditional dip recipes.

Which dip has the least calories?
Salsa has the least calories of all of the dip recipes. Try my Vitamix salsa recipe and see.
Tools / equipment
Blender – To get a nice, smooth consistency, you’ll want to process the ingredients in a blender or food processor. You can use either one depending on how much dip you want to make.
Vegetable Platter – While not a strict requirement, you’ll find it much easier to serve cut vegetables and dip at your party with an organized way to keep everything in its place.
I really like the ones with the built-in dip bowl. This one even has a built-in tray for ice to keep everything cold.
Using Progresso canned cannellini beans is a huge time saver in this easy vegetable dip. There is no need to soak or cook dried beans before making the dip.
Canned is so much easier and just as healthy. This healthy dip recipe is also an easy way to get a boost of protein into your diet.
Of course, if you’re looking for healthy dips for chips, you can certainly use this as well.
What can I dip carrots in that’s healthy?
This bean dip tastes delicious with carrots and celery. You can also dip them into hummus.
Canned foods mean less prep time and year-round availability. That makes healthy, homemade meals a reality, more often.
A well-stocked pantry – your “Cantry ” – helps you get through the week with creative meals you can feel good about serving your family and friends.
