Healthy Honey Mustard Dip Recipe

yogurt-honey-mustard-dip

Yesterday I promised a honey mustard dip that’s good for you, and today I deliver.  I’ve become slightly addicted to Greek yogurt lately, and am discovering that it makes a great substitute for mayonnaise in a lot of recipes.  This honey mustard dip is perfect for chicken wings, chicken tenders, or even fresh vegetable sticks, and you can eat it guilt free.I’ve started using the Livestrong MyPlate tracker to help me pay attention to exactly what’s going into my body.  While I realize that we eat healthier than most people, I also know that there are a lot of areas that we can work on.  For instance, I’m a snacker, and keep a lot of healthy snacks at my desk.  But even though nuts and dried fruit are healthy, if I don’t keep track of how much I’m eating, I may find that I’ve had 2 cups of pecans by the end of the work day.  That’s over 1000 calories!

I’m not obsessing over every calorie, but I am trying to make sure that I really am getting as many vitamins and nutrients as possible, and that my caloric intake averages to a healthy amount each week.  Basically, it’s a test to see if my diet is really as balanced as I feel it is.

The good news for you, is that some recipes can now include nutrition information.  I can’t do this for every recipe, it takes me 4-8 hours to complete a recipe post, and inputting each one into a recipe calculator would add another thirty minutes I just don’t have!  But sometimes I do so to keep track for myself, and when that happens, of course I’m willing to share it with you!

For instance, this lovely dip has three simple ingredients: plain Greek yogurt, deli mustard and honey.  The cup of dip is enough for at least eight people, so it’s about 1/8 cup for a serving.  Here are the nutrition facts:

Calories 34
Calories from Fat 0.0
Total Fat 0g
Saturated Fat 0g
Cholesterol 0mg
Sodium 90.63mg
Total Carbohydrate 7.25g
Dietary Fiber 0g
Sugars 6.88g
Protein 1.88g

But let’s not forget that Greek yogurt is full of calcium, potassium, protein, zinc, and vitamins B6 and B12.  It has double the protein of regular yogurt so helps you feel full longer (this means you can eat just a few chicken tenders to feel satisfied!)

Okay, I’ll share the recipe already.  But one quick question.  How many of you are interested in the nutritional information of the recipes I share?  Is this something that’s helpful to include or could you care less?  I’d love to hear from you!

    This is great! I love Greek yogurt and am always looking for ways to get it in my diet instead of nasty things like mayo! Also having a 2.5 year old daughter this sauce seems great! Thanks for sharing!

    Thank you for this easy delicious recipe. I’ve been making Paula Deans honey mustard which is delicious but super fattening. I followed your recipe and added a bit of hers by adding a tablespoon of orange juice and a tablespoon of lemin juice and it helped pop the flavor a bit, FYI. Enjoy

    So I LOVE Greek yogurt with fruit and in warm dishes that for instance you would use sour cream in normally and so on. I made this dip to be more of a dressing and/or marinade. Firstly, I substituted agave nectar in place of honey because its what I had on hand and was bbqing shortly after I decided to make this so needed it asap. Besides I always use agave when making homemade baked beans so figured it would work fairly well. Second, I used half spicy brown mustard and half yellow because that is just the way I like my normal simple honey mustard made with honey and mustard. Third, I did not like the tartness from the Greek yogurt in this dip for a salad (cold) BUT I absolutely loved it when used to marinate chicken breasts thinly sliced and pineapples sliced and then both tossed on the grill…made an excellent filling for a wrap. I will definitely try this with honey and see how much I like it that way next time I make it. Thanks so much for the recipe and by the way I love having nutritional facts with recipes as it makes my life much simpler and it is very appreciated.

      I forgot to add that I also added a squeeze of lemon juice. I also do this when making my simple honey mustard and adding a tiny bit more than I usually would seem to tone down the tartness of the Greek yogurt a little bit.
