Yummy low cal dip (I think?)

sassycasssassycass Posts: 18Member Member Posts: 18Member Member
So last night I made this dip using Fat Free Cottage Cheese and HVR dry mix. I think? this is low cal, but I thought I'd check with you all first.

The cottage cheese is 80 calories, 0 fat, 3 carbs, 14 g protein for a 1/2 cup serving. (I mixed the entire container, though) I used a packet of Hidden Valley Ranch dry mix and the cottage cheese. Put it in the food processor and blended until it "looks" like dip consistency. My kid & I love this dip with celery and my littlest one makes cucumber sandwiches with it.

I tossed the package without looking at the calories and can't find it online...do any of you know the calories for a dry packet of seasoning.

    Thanks skinnerme!

    It is low cal, then, huh? The texture is different, but myself (and my girls) got used to it pretty quickly. Alot less cals than regular dip/or using sour cream.
