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.

If you do well with dairy, I love the Maple Hill grass-fed yogurt which comes from 100% grass fed cows.  If you have a sensitivity to coconut, you can try this with almond milk yogurt as well.

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!
