I made this Thai Vegetable Dip using SPLENDA® Sweeteners as part of a sponsored post for SocialStars #SplendaSweeties #SweetSwaps
Eeek! I just looked at the calendar – and shorts and t-shirt season is just around the corner!
It’s been a long, cold winter here in New England (and still – a chilly spring!) and I’ve been blissfully hibernating under warm, cozy sweaters and long pants for months! But – the time is NOW to start making some better food choices, so those cute warm weather outfits I’m just starting to pull from the back of my closet are sure to look great!
Eating more vegetables is one of the best ways that I know to make sure I’m eating a balanced diet. And our super easy and flavorful Thai Vegetable Dip is one of our favorites to serve alongside a platter full of fresh, cut vegetables for us to munch on.
This Thai Vegetable Dip is a real crowd-pleaser – and both kids and adults love it! It’s cool and creamy, as well as spicy and sweet! The fantastic, spicy flavor comes from the addition of Thai red curry paste, onion, cilantro and fresh lime juice – and we’ve swapped in SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated in place of sugar to add some sweetness to this dip without adding calories!
SPLENDA® Sweeteners are a great option when you’re looking for ways to add sweetness to a recipe but want less added sugar. It offers the same sweetness of sugar, but without all the calories. SPLENDA® Sweeteners are versatile and they can be used in baking, cooking, and beverage mixing.

Note: Thai Red Chili Paste called for in this recipe uses Thai chilies – but the flavor is not overly spicy. Taste test a little first if you have never tried it and if you think it is too spicy for your palate, cut back a bit and replace that amount with ketchup.
