We are always on the hunt for finding the easiest yet most delicious recipes for summer get together. Picnics, bbq, and hot summer nights all require a recipe that I can make quickly (because I’m always running behind) yet everyone can enjoy. I stumbled upon a BLT Dip recipe and made it my own by eliminating some of the extra calories without sacrificing flavor. I think it’s a winner. Thankfully, those that are lactose intolerant can also enjoy the BLT Dip thanks to LactoJoy.
LactoJoy, which is made in Germany, is hitting the U.S. market with their lactose intolerance pills that let those that suffer from a reaction to lactose enjoy all the tasty treats without any worry. What we LOVE about LactoJoy is that it is Vegan, Histamine Free, Gluten Free, Fructose Free, Lactose-Free and, most importantly, it works! Plus, it comes in probably the sleekest medicine packaging I’ve ever laid eyes on. Seriously, Germany does not disappoint in their car designs (I’m looking at you VW) or their LactoJoy packaging design. That country is owning it!
LactoJoy Packaging: Because Pretty Packages Make Us Happy
Arriving in a black box with green and white print I feel like its a quality product before we even try the lactose intolerance pills. The box slides out of the sleeven and we find an adorable matte black metal container with an embossed cow and logo on it. Plus, it reminds me to feel better and when I slide the top open their hashtag, #stayfresh, has been stamped on the inside. LOVE IT.
About The BLT Dip Recipe
This recipe takes less than 15 minutes to put together. I layered it in a Snapware container for easy storage and display. I served the BLT dip with a side of crackers but you could also use tortilla chips or chunks of baguette. This is the perfect recipe when you are on the go, forgot to make something for the family get together or it’s simply too hot to cook. Don’t let it sit in the sun, but it should do well in the shade sitting on top of an ice pack long enough for everyone to eat.
BLT Dip Ingredients
- 6 ounces, reduced fat cream cheese, softened to room temperature
- 1 cup of FAGE fat-free Greek yogurt
- 1/2 package of Hidden Valley Ranch Dip Mix
- 1 cup guacamole
- 9 strips center cut bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
- 1/3 cup reduced fat, shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 small Roma tomato, diced
- A handful of lettuce, chopped
BLT Dip Directions
- In a small bowl combine the cream cheese, yogurt and ranch mix. I used a spatula to mix it up well but you could use a spoon or a fork.
- In a 1-1 1/2 quart glass dish layer in the following order: guacamole, yogurt/cream cheese mixture, bacon, cheese, tomato, lettuce. As you add each layer be sure to spread it evenly across the dish. Serve with crackers, tortilla chips or baguette chunks.
- Serves 8
Note for my Weight Watchers Readers
I tried to keep the BLT Dip recipe to a decent point value. I’m basing this recipe on serving 8. It’s a pretty hearty appetizer so I think most people would be satisfied with a couple bites. The BLT dip itself comes in at 5 points per serving. If you create tortilla chips from an Ole Extreme Fitness Wrap (simply cut into small triangles and bake at 350 until crisp) you only add 1 more point.
BLT Dip + LactoJoy Lactose Intolerance Pills
LactoJoy lets us enjoy heavy dairy foods without the worry. Simply take one immediately before eating dairy and it directly helps the body with digestion. The BLT Dip recipe is pretty heavy on the dairy products. It includes cream cheese, greek yogurt, and shredded cheese. Normally, I would shy away from this type of recipe but gave it a go.
Picnics, BBQs, and Being the Hostess with the Mostess
It’s simple enough to have LactoJoy on hand at your next summertime party. For an adult only party, I would simply place the LactoJoy on the table next to the high dairy items. If children are in attendance I would place out of reach and simply indicate on a notecard that LactoJoy Lactose Intolerance Pills are available in the kitchen so they can enjoy all the foods as well.
