This tangy recipe uses Lactantia® Lactose Free 2% Milk and Lactantia® Lactose Free 35% Whipping Cream for a rich and creamy dip that goes perfectly with pita chips.

Serves: 4 - 6 Preparation: 15 mins Cook Time: 20 mins, Refrigeration: 1.5 hrs



  1. In a medium pot, bring the Lactantia® Lactose Free Milk and Lactantia® Lactose Free 35% Whipping Cream to a boil on medium heat.
  2. Remove from heat, add the salt and lemon juice. Stir gently and let sit for 5 minutes.
