Ranch and Fruit Dip For One

Staying on task for the quick and easy, I thought I’d throw a couple of recipes out there for stuff to dip your stuff in. Both are super simple, and lend themselves to single servings pretty well. Hope you like ‘em!

Fruit Dip For One 

1 cup plain or vanilla yogurt (or flavored, if you like)

2 tbsp sweetener (brown sugar, honey, real maple syrup, equivalent substitute)

Mix these up together. Yeah, I know it seems stupid it’s so easy, but that’s what makes it good. You can throw a quarter teaspoon of cinnamon in there if you like, or a quarter teaspoon of lemon juice for some pizazz, but really, it’s just sweet yogurt. Other recipes call for cream cheese, or whipped topping, or pudding. If you want, feel free to add them. I’m just putting the most basic form of it out there. Use your imagination, and create! (“It lives. It lives!” 20 points to those who can read that with the proper pronunciation.)

Ranch Dip For One

1/2 cup sour cream

1/2 tsp parsley flakes

1/4 tsp dill weed

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp onion powder

pinch of black pepper

1/4 tsp salt

Stir this up until it’s well-blended. Chill in the fridge, if you can wait a few hours. If you can’t, just dig in.

Let me know if you like these, and we can always tweak them, if we need to.
