Following any healthy way of eating comes down to finding the foods you enjoy eating. Weight Watchers isn't a diet – it's a way of life – and treating it as such is important. If you think you “can't” have something, you will just crave it even more.
Easy Garlic Dip Recipe
Garlic goes in all of our recipes because it's so flavorful and delicious. You have to be careful when you're using the garlic powder in case the lid falls off. When the lid falls off, garlic goes EVERYWHERE. Don't ask me how I knew that, but I did get it cleaned up before Mom found out.
Low Point Add-ins
In my family, we like to add in zero and low point mix-ins to our foods to make them stretch longer. With a garlic dip recipe, you can add in:
- lean shredded chicken
- chopped up shrimp
- different cheese
- more spices and flavors like ginger
- peppers (I like habaneros)
Dips are so versatile. You can easily add more protein and turn them into a casserole (that is one of the best things to do! Yum!). You can also change the entire flavor profile by swapping out a few spices and flavors.

How to Make Garlic Dip
Preheat oven to 400*F. Slice a thin layer from the head of the garlic. Lightly drizzle the cloves with olive oil and wrap tightly in aluminum foil.
Roast in pre-heated oven for 40 minutes, or until garlic is tender. Remove from oven and set aside.
Once cool enough to handle, squeeze roasted garlic into a food processor. Add in nonfat sour cream, nonfat Greek yogurt, lemon juice and zest, crushed red pepper, and cayenne, if using. Transfer to small serving bowl. Use to dip our Parmesan Shrimp in!
