Creamy pesto dressing /dip

If you're a fan of creamy dressings and dips then you will want to try out this recipe. It has 2 ingredients and is healthy and macro friendly. I guarantee you'll never want to go back to the over-processed, calorific alternatives.

Okay so first you will need 170g tub of Fage greek yogurt and 30g of pesto.

 

Mix them together and season with salt, black pepper and a drop of fresh lemon juice.

Done! Macros for 170g tub of yogurt and 30g pesto are: P 19.1   C 8.6   F 14.5   233cals

I used it as a salad dressing but it could just as easily be used on bun-less burgers, baked potatoes or as a dip. Lemon juice thins it out - so put in more or less depending on your preference. Perfect for this BBQ weather we are having at the moment.

Don't forget the MACRO talk in PFP gym Portlaoise - FREE, 28th June in Pearson Fitness and Performance gym Portlaoise from 8:30pm - 9:30pm!
