Homemade Poppy Seed Dressing:

Is it frowned upon to drink salad dressing? If so, I am in trouble! I could drink this Poppy Seed Dressing because it is so darn good. Poppy seed has always been a favorite dressing of mine, but making it homemade makes it 10x better. Who knew simple ingredients could tastes so good?

How long does this dressing last?

If you have any leftover dressing, feel free to add it to a mason jar and pop in the fridge. It will last up to 4 days. Before serving, make sure to give it a good shake as the ingredients will separate and settle in the fridge.

👇🏼My 2 favorite healthy swaps for oil when baking, applesauce and Greek yogurt. Both options will save you a ton of calories and fat and give you the same results as oil. 

These swaps are for baked goods such as cakes, cupcakes, sweet breads, and muffins. 

🍎APPLESAUCE SWAP: When substituting applesauce for oil in baked goods, the ratio is 1:1. 

Example: If the recipe calls for 1/4 cup of oil, use 1/4 cup of applesauce or 1/2 cup oil use 1/2 cup applesauce. It’s a equal swap. 

🍎For every 1/2 cup of oil replaced with applesauce, you will save over 900 calories and 110 grams of fat. It will also make your cakes and baked goods super moist. 

✨GREEK YOGURT SWAP: For everyone 1 cup of oil sub 3/4 cup Greek or plain yogurt. 

Example: If you are using 1/2 cup oil, use 1/4 cup Greek yogurt. For 1/2 cup of oil there is over 900 calories. For 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt there is only 38 calories. 

Greek yogurt adds more protein and cuts fat by 100%
