This flavourful lactose-free yogurt dip combines fresh ingredients for a vibrant and creamy texture. It is versatile and perfect for a refreshing snack or adding flavour to your favourite dishes. Made with lactose-free yogurt so everyone can indulge in the palatable delight.


  • Blend kale, parsley, pine nuts, garlic, lactose-free yogurt, and lemon juice in a food processor until smooth.
  • Add olive oil and white beans and blend again until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Serve with pumpkin seeds, a dash of olive oil, and lemon zest.

For the best flavour, use fresh ingredients, especially with the herbs, garlic, and lemon juice. Be careful with the garlic as some cloves are more pungent than others, especially when opting for very fresh ones.


Once the dip is blended, you can chill it in the fridge for an hour or so to allow the flavours to meld together. It will stay good in the fridge for 3-4 days but remember that the flavours might change the longer you let it sit.
