Expert Tips

You can use 1 (6-oz) container of Yoplait® Original 99% Fat Free French vanilla yogurt instead of the yogurt in the recipe.

Crystallized ginger is fresh gingerroot cooked in a candy syrup and coated with coarse sugar.

Most store-bought dips are usually high in saturated fat, calories and sodium. They contain, on average, three times the calories and ten times the fat of homemade dips made with low-fat dairy products such as yogurt and reduced-fat cream cheese.
