Creamy Veggie Dip

Creamy Veggie Dip with carrots, cucumbers, and peppers

I’m always looking for ways to eat more vegetables and serving them with this Creamy Veggie Dip definitely does the trick! Whipping up this recipe couldn’t be easier. You’ll just stir together a few ingredients and then let it chill for a couple hours to infuse the dip with flavor. Then grab some veggies and get dipping!

Not only is this dip great to have on hand for daily snacking, it’s also awesome to serve at a party or bring to a get together with friends. It’s always nice to bring foods that you can make ahead and don’t require any cooking or heating to serve. I think it even tastes better the next day! It’s also sure to be a crowd pleaser. The consistency is thick and creamy and the mix of herbs and flavors tastes great with pretty much any assortment of raw vegetables. I would never guess a dip this rich was lightened up, but each satisfying ¼ cup serving is just 63 calories or 2 WW PersonalPoints! If you’d like a more traditional dip serving of two tablespoons, you can cut those numbers in half. I just always want more dip!

  • Celery
  • Snow Peas

Recipe Tips and FAQs

  • Mayo/Greek Yogurt/Sour Cream ratio: I tried a few different versions of this dip before settling on the perfect ratio. I was trying to balance making it lighter and getting the flavor and consistency I wanted. I found that the mayo adds a lot of flavor, so I wouldn’t skip it! I used significantly less of it than the original recipe but it’s enough to get that decadent taste I was seeking.
  • Can this be made vegetarian? Did you know that Worcestershire sauce is not vegetarian? There’s only ¼ teaspoon of it in this recipe, so you could skip it if you like, but I’d suggest using soy sauce instead.
  • Can I double this recipe? My recipe is actually halved from the original recipe I lightened it up from. If you’re bringing it to a party you may want to make extra!
  • Can this dip be made ahead? Yes! I think it tastes even better as the flavors have time to meld.

  1. I made this and I loved it. I am really confused about the stats for it though .. I put it in MFP using the same ingredients as you and it came out 315 calories for 8 1/4c servings. 5 stars

    • I’m glad you enjoyed it! I’m genuinely not sure how you would get that. One cup of fat free sour cream had 160 calories, 1/2 cup of Hellmann’s light mayo had 280 calories, and 1/2 cup of Fage 0% had 60 calories. That’s for the entire recipe (plus small amounts for the spices etc). Are you possibly entering full fat versions of everything?

  2. I’m so excited to try this!  After 2 years of wfh, I have to go back to the office and when I’m there all I want to do is eat.  This will help me snack on veggies instead of vending machine candy bars 

  3. How long do you think this will last in the fridge? I may be the only one eating it and not sure if it would last 8 days. Thanks!

  4. This dip is so tasty and so quick to come together! I definitely recommend buying the large containers of sour cream and yogurt because you’ll want to make another batch as soon as you finish the first batch.
    The quarter cup serving is also quite generous compared to store bought dips.
    I love bringing this to parties with a veggie tray [and a fruit tray with Emily’s Cheesecake Fruit Dip ;)]. It’s also good in wraps and on shredded chicken for a quick chicken salad.5 stars
