This Skinny Million Dollar Dip is a lighter spin on the famous Million Dollar Dip! This almond, bacon, and cheese dip recipe started out as a cheese spread and quickly become a crowd-pleasing million dollar dip that has lasted the test of time.
It’s perfect for making in advance and only takes about 5 minutes to prepare, making it the perfect appetizer for any gathering!
|1 (8 oz) pkg||Greek yogurt cream cheese, softened (or 1/3 less fat)|
|1 cup||Plain Greek yogurt|
|1 cup||2% shredded cheddar cheese (or cheese of choice)|
|4||Green onions, chopped fine|
|1/2 cup||Pre-cooked center cut bacon, chopped fine (or bacon bits)|
|1/3 cup||Slivered almonds, chopped fine|
|1 tsp||Garlic, minced (or 1/2 tsp garlic powder)|
In a large bowl, add softened cream cheese, greek yogurt, cheddar cheese, green onions, bacon bits, slivered almonds, and garlic. Use a spatula to thoroughly mix all ingredients together. (Note: I used a hand mixer to bet the cream cheese and yogurt together first to get the dip more fluffy/creamy, and folded in the rest of the ingredients with a spatula.)
Top with additional cheese, green onions and bacon bits if desired!
Serve immediately or chilled with baked tortilla chips, crackers, vegetables, or other healthier snacks for dipping.
Serves 16 (1/4 cup per serving).
