Protein-Packed Ranch Dip

Protein-Packed Ranch Dip

You might be in the habit of making ranch dip by simply shaking a packet of powder into a tub of sour cream and voilà! — an anything but healthy game-day snack.

The next time you’re tasked with bringing the dip, try this healthier ranch dip from the team over at FIXATE.

21 Day Fix creator Autumn Calabrese and her brother, chef Bobby Calabrese, have dreamed up a healthier alternative to traditional ranch dip that partygoers are sure to love.

This ranch dip is hugely flavorful because it’s made with all of the ingredients that make up a classic ranch flavor.

With fewer calories and more protein than regular ranch dip, you can be confident putting this dish out on the buffet table.

As Bobby so aptly points out in this episode of FIXATE, “You could eat four times as much of this dip and end up eating the same amount of calories that you would get in a regular ranch dip.” (Although you probably shouldn’t!)

Not only does this FIX-approved ranch dip cut out the calories, it has a whopping six times the protein than store-bought ranch dip.

Where does all that protein come from? Canned chicken gets a quick blitz in the food processor and a heaping helping of plain Greek yogurt give this ranch dip its creamy consistency.

Fresh chives and dill create the base of the ranch flavor and garlic, Dijon mustard, and smoked paprika bring that flavor home.

Need to bring a vegetarian option? Autumn and Booby have you covered: They also created a vegetarian version of this dip made with cashews in place of chicken.
