Dairy Free Yogurt "Cheese" Dip
Yield 2 cups Dip
2 cups (16 oz) unsweetened coconut yogurt
Savory ingredients for serving
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp lemon juice (from half a lemon)
1/4 cup olives, for topping
Sliced cucumbers or radishes, for serving
1 tsp fresh herbs, finely minced
For Sweet Toppings:
These are optional
Add handful sliced strawberries (2–3 medium strawberries)
Add handful organic blueberries
Drizzle with Keto maple syrup
Step 1: Place the yogurt in a folded cheesecloth big enough to hold the yogurt.
Step 2: Place the cheesecloth or kitchen towel with the yogurt into a colander, and suspend the colander over a bowl to collect the strained liquid. Place in the refrigerator and allow to strain for at least 12 hours.
Step 3: To serve, add the strained thickened coconut yogurt into a small bowl. Stir in salt and lemon juice. Top with olives and fresh vegetables for dipping.

This is a great alternative to a cheese dip and for people who are dairy intolerant. Coconut yogurt is pressed from the white meat of coconut, which has been shown to help improve blood sugar and insulin levels and may help reduce belly fat.
Dr Jockers Comments
Everyone loves a good cheese dip, unfortunately, there are many who have food sensitivities to dairy. This “dairy-free” yogurt cheese dip tastes great and provides healthy fats that stabilize blood sugar and help burn fat for fuel!
We especially enjoy this recipe with a good paleo cracker or these great tasting homemade keto crackers which provide a great crunch and a savory flavor. It is also nice to have the cucumber slices, celery sticks and olives on the side!
