TJ's Product Review: Beet & Garlic Dip

Beet Hummus.jpg

The holidays are over which means it's back to school & work, and back to snacking on the go. Instead of dipping your veggies in high-calorie dressings and spreads, opt for this delicious, nutrient-filled "hummus" from Trader Joe's!

Pros: 

  • Low-Calorie: Only 40 calories in every two tablespoons in comparison to the 140 calories in two tablespoons in a standard Ranch dressing, the swap is a no-brainer! 
  • Nutritious: This dip is made of whole ingredients (mainly beets of course) - it's (relatively) high in potassium and low in added sugar (0gm!)  
  • Smell: Although this "hummus" is made with garlic, it does NOT have a strong garlic-y smell (or taste for that matter!) 
  • Color: As you can see it has a really beautiful color that POPS! Add it to sandwiches to make them fun and exciting 

Cons: 

  • Taste: I admit, it's a bit bland. Adding a pinch of salt can go a long way! 

Overall Rating: 4 stars!
