This easy greek yogurt dill dip is a healthier alternative to traditional dips that is delicious and also packed with protein and probiotics. It’s low fat, high protein and perfect for parties, picnics, or dip to serve with veggies.
The greek yogurt dill dip comes together in under 5 minutes and is how I get my toddler to eat her veggies. My little girl doesn’t love all my homemade salad dressings, but she loves yogurt and dill. Thus, I often make this greek yogurt dip for both of us to enjoy with fresh chopped veggie sticks.
It is the perfect healthy snack made with simple ingredients and tastes great with fresh vegetables. Serve it as a healthy snack with chopped vegetables such as cucumber, carrot, broccoli, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, and celery.
Plain greek yogurt is used as the base for the healthy dill dip as it has a thicker texture than regular plain yogurt. That being said, I often make it with low fat regular yogurt, too, but it does have a runnier consistency than greek yogurt.
The homemade dill dip is so easy to make. Measure dried herbs, spices, and coconut sugar into a small bowl with the greek yogurt and stir. Chop some fresh dill and add a squeeze of lemon juice and voila.
Enjoy with raw veggies, and you have a healthy snack made in 5 minutes, which is one of the reasons why this veggie dip has been a staple in my life lately. Quick, easy, and healthy is what I need!

How to make dill dip with greek yogurt
- Prepare Your Greek Yogurt: Place 1 cup of Greek yogurt in a mixing bowl. Greek yogurt is rich, creamy, and protein-packed, making it the perfect base for this dip.
- Add Dried or Fresh Chopped Dill: Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of dried dill over the yogurt or 3 tbsp fresh chopped dill. Dill gives the dip a refreshing and herby flavor that pairs beautifully with the tanginess of the yogurt.
- Garlic Plus Flavors: Add two teaspoons of garlic powder to provide a savory depth to the dip, enhancing its overall taste.
- Chives: Incorporate one tablespoon of dried chives. Chives add a mild onion flavor and a pop of color to the dip.
- Lemon Herb Spice: Sprinkle two teaspoons of Club House lemon herb spice (or a similar blend) into the mixture. This imparts a zesty and aromatic quality that complements the other flavors.
- Add Fresh Lemon Juice: Cut a lemon in half and squeeze the lemon juice into the dill yogurt sauce.
- Pepper to Taste: Grind some freshly cracked black pepper into the mixture according to your preference. The pepper adds a subtle kick and balances out the creaminess.
- Sweet Touch with Coconut Sugar: Add two tablespoons of coconut sugar for a hint of sweetness. Coconut sugar enhances the tangy yogurt and enhances the overall flavor profile. Adjust the amount to suit your taste.
- Mix Thoroughly: Gently stir all the ingredients until they’re well combined. Make sure the spices are evenly distributed throughout the yogurt.
- Serve and Enjoy: It’s now ready to be enjoyed with your favorite fresh veggies or as a sauce for grilled chicken or fish.
Storage Tip: This greek yogurt dill dip can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Tips and substitutions
You can make this yogurt dill dip with only dried herbs as it is less time-consuming and doesn’t require buying additional fresh herbs, but adding fresh dill and chives makes the most flavorful dip and is worth the extra time to chop. Try adding fresh parsley or green onions, or even add extra dill!
I added clubhouse lemon and herbs spice to get a zesty, lemony kick, and the garlic plus is the perfect blend of spices with garlic to flavor the dip perfectly. If you prefer not to use these spices, substituting with garlic powder, onion powder, and some zest from the lemon rind is a great option.
Smoked paprika is another spice I often love adding to this healthy greek yogurt dill dip recipe. Sometimes, I add it, and sometimes, I don’t, so it depends on personal preference.
I watch my total fat intake, especially saturated fats; thus, I opted for low-fat Greek yogurt. Oikos fat-free greek yogurt is a great option that offers 17 grams of protein per 3/4 cup, but you can also use a full-fat greek yogurt. The choice is yours.
The yogurt dill vegetable dip is best served with your favorite fresh veggies. Bring it along to the next party you are headed to for a healthy appetizer.
Using greek yogurt to make a simple dill dip is a much healthier alternative to store bought dressing that is calorie-dense and full of processed oils.
