Alone, eating raw veggies lacks the appeal of other appetizers. What’s a carrot stick compared to Baked Buffalo Cauliflower Wings? But something that can elevate the flavor profile of even the blandest celery stick are sweet and savory yogurt dips.
Yogurt dips, whether they be dairy-full or free, packed with mix-ins like a knock off Cold Stone cup, or solo and flavored, are a great way to spice up your mid-day (or midnight) snack. And because their base is packed with calcium, protein, and gut-healthy live cultures and probiotics, they’re nutrient-rich right off the bat.
