My recipe today features Stonyfield Greek yogurt. I'm a member of the Stonyfield Clean Plate Club. I was provided with free samples of their yogurt to create this recipe with, AND they sent me a huge case of Late July snack chips to dip into my dip with. DOUBLE THANKS!
TRIPLE BONUS was that they offered to send a case of Late July chips and some Greek yogurt for one of you lucky readers. If you're looking for a healthy, all-natural snack chip that's lower in carbs and calories than traditional snack chips, you're gonna be in snacking Heaven with these!
I had several flavors of chips to choose from, so Brian and I did a taste test and determined that we couldn't pick a favorite... we loved EVERY SINGLE variety!
With that being said, 3 of the flavor varieties, Red Hot Mojo, Sub Lime, and Mild Green Mojo, are sort of Caribbean in flavor. I wanted to find a chip that would help to accent those flavors, so I added mango and black beans to my dip. I also added a small amount of vanilla yogurt to bring an extra touch of sweetness. The dip was SO good that Brian, who's also known as Mr. "I HATE yogurt", helped me to devour the batch in less than 30 minutes. Can you say SMASHING SUCCESS?
You can have this dip put together in less than 5 minutes and in front of your game day crowd of hungry eaters in record time!
- 2 containers (5.3 ounces each) plain flavored nonfat Greek Yogurt
- 1 container (5.3 ounces) vanilla flavored nonfat Greek Yogurt
- 1/2 cup fresh or frozen mango, diced small
- 1/4 cup cooked black beans (if using canned, rinse well and drain)
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Add all ingredients to a mixing bowl and use a wooden spoon or spatula to combine.
- SERVING SUGGESTION:
- Serve with snack chips, raw veggies, or as a topping for baked potatoes, rice, or salad
