The Dietitian’s Top Pick: Dannon® Oikos® Greek Yogurt Dips

oikos dips #festfoods

Who doesn’t love March Madness? Or really any exciting sporting event for that matter? Even if you’re not a super fan, it’s a great excuse to enjoy friends, family and food! While game time foods don’t always get the best nutrition reputation, there are plenty of winning options! One of my favorite new products is the line of Dannon®Oikos® Greek Yogurt Dips. These are slam dunk dips for your NCAA Championship Game party, mid-afternoon snack or spring barbecue appetizer. What makes these dips a winner? The Greek yogurt base provides a rich, tangy taste and creamy texture for only 25 calories, 1g of fat and 2g of protein per 2 tablespoon serving (typical French Onion dip comes in at 60 calories and 5g of fat for the same serving size!). After trying each variety, I can’t pick a favorite! The French Onion pairs well with baked potato chips as a better take on a traditional treat. The Cucumber Dill has just the right amount of dill flavor and tastes fabulous with crisp cucumbers, carrots, sliced bell peppers or cherry tomatoes. I like to make my own pita chips to dip into the Roasted Red Pepper variety or spread on a sandwich as a mayo substitute. Which dip will you entertain this week, and what will you use as dippers? Feel free to leave a comment below! Looking for other game winning snacks?
