    I do finely chopped chilli with chives and mix it into FF natural yoghurt.
    Also onion and garlic in yoghurt
    Or cheese and onion in yoghurt

    Basically all the really fatty creamy ones you get in those dip packs, I try to recreate with yoghurt! They are a bit runnier but just as good.

    Also, you could make some hummous too.

    how about that garlic and herb low fat cottage cheese, the smooth one. That's free.

    Or quark with a smidge of garlic puree is nice.

    Hi Jaylou, do you have a recipe for hummous? I tried to make it once using a SW recipe but it was a disaster - it was so bad I had to throw it away (once I had finally scraped it out of my blender). Tracy

    fab tips girls! did think of yoghurt but thought it was too runny would putting a wee drop of quark into it thicken it up a little?

    Hi Tracy,
    I whizz a tin of chick peas, a clove of garlic, lemon juice and add water until it is the right consistancy - loads of seasoning and fresh coriander if you have it.

    What is lovely is if you roast some red peppers first, remove the skins and whizz them up with the other ingredients.

    Yep, quark and yoghurt works fine, as does using FF fromage frais instead, thicker but more expensive. :D
