Skinny Dips for the Festive Season



It's the festive season as our bathroom scales tell me each day and Christmas hasn't even arrived yet! After a surfeit of mince pies, shortbread and truffles we'll all behave ourselves and feast on skinny dips. Here's three of my favourites:

Beetroot Dip

I used a full cream yoghurt for this recipe ( Clearwater's )

3 tablespoons of finely grated raw beetroot
1/2 cup of yoghurt
1 tablespoon of chopped mint
1 teaspoon of pomegrate molasses ( optional)

Avocado Dip
1 avocado
3 tablespoons of yoghurt
chopped coriander to garnish

1/4 telegraph cucumber
1/2 cup of yoghurt

grate cucumber
squeeze very well with your hands or with the back of a spoon against a sieve to drain off as much as the water as possible
Combine with yoghurt

toasted ciabatta to serve
