10 Healthy Dips for your Holiday Gatherings

Trying to lose weight around the holidays? Or maintain a healthy weight? Think you have to deprive yourself of delicious food? Bah, humbug!

Here, 10 guilt-free, crowd-pleasing (they are all vegan and gluten-free!), holiday dips to enjoy this holiday season.

1. Creamy Cashew Chive Dip

This Creamy Cashew Chive Dip is thick and creamy, rich and luscious, wonderfully flavorful, and goes well with anything.

2. Oil-Free Hummus

Oil free hummus

Hummus is a healthy, gluten-free, vegan dip that is amazingly versatile and wonderfully delicious, but most hummus has a lot of oil in it. This version is just as tasty without the unhealthy oil.

3. Creamy Lime Dip

Oil-Free Roasted Sweet Potato Coins

Oooooh yes! This zippity dip is fabulous with these Roasted Sweet Potatoes, but it is also great with chips, in a wrap, and even on sandwiches.

4. Simply Delicious Tomato-Free Guacamole

Healthy Toppings

We think this is the best guacamole. Give it a try and see if you agree.

5. Vegan, Soy-Free Sour Cream

Vegan Sour Cream Recipe

Even low-fat sour cream gets more than 50% of its calories from fat, and much of that fat is saturated fat, which has been shown to be a contributor to heart disease, dementia, diabetes, and obesity. And some brands of low-fat sour cream include ingredients like gums, modified starch, and Propylene Glycol Monoester in it.

Vegan versions are not much better.

But here’s a very healthy, homemade sour cream that tastes great on burritos, tostadas, baked potatoes, and more.

6. Broccoli Avocado Hummus Dip

Broccoli-Avocado-Hummus Dip offers a delightful twist on ordinary hummus. It’s guacamole meets hummus. And it’s a great way to sneak some veggies in your day.

7. Skinny Walnut Basil Pesto

Slimmed-Down Vegan Pesto

This nutrient-dense, healthier basil pesto saves you an average of 60 calories and 5 grams of fat (per 1/4 cup serving). And it is cholesterol-free!

8. White Bean Garlic Dip

White Bean Garlic Parsley Dip

A high in fiber, healthy dip – perfect for weight loss. In fact, it’s probably one of the healthiest dips you can eat.

9. Creamy Dill Dressing (or Creamy Italian Dressing)

healthy salad dressing

Technically a dressing, but if you add just a little less water when you make it, you’ve got a luscious vegan Dill Dip (or Creamy Italian Dip) that’s healthy and slimming!

10. Maple Date Syrup
