Party Dip Ideas

Seasonal Ideas

DipsNext time you’re entertaining, welcome your guests with healthy, tasty and colourful platters of dips and nibbles. Making your own dips will save you money and ensure they are lower in fat, but above all it enables you to create exciting combinations that are not readily available in the shops.

To make creamy, healthy and slimming dips, use fat free crème fraiche, fromage frais, natural yogurt, low fat mayonnaise or low fat Greek yogurt.
Our tried and tested favourites are all made with fat free Crème Fraiche, which we find to work perfectly, resulting in a creamy consistency and rich flavour. Simply stir through one of the following blends to taste, commencing with a couple of teaspoons of spice blend to 100ml of crème fraiche or your chosen alternative base for a dip:

If you want to introduce a little more colour and texture to your dips, stir in some finely chopped spring onions, finely diced red peppers or chopped sun dried tomatoes. These all make lovely toppings for jacket potatoes too!

Alternatively, try out these recipes from our website:

Other super simple ideas to wow your guests include:

  • Tuna dip – light cream cheese mixed with mashed tuna & cracked black pepper.
  • Wasabi dip – made from a mix of crème fraiche, crushed cooked peas & a touch of wasabi powder.

Serve your dips with a colourful selection of the following accompaniments:

Crudites of raw celery, carrot, cucumber, peppers, mooli, baby sweetcorn, cauliflower florets, asparagus spears, spring onions, sugar snap peas, breadsticks, tortilla chips, baked pitta strips, puff pastry straws or mini crackers.
