THE HISTORY OF DIP
It seems there is a day for everything. Check out the National Day Calendar and you’ll find a reason to celebrate something each and every day. Here are some fun ones you may not know about:
- September 1st: National Burnt Ends Day (I can personally get behind this one)
- February 7th: National Send A Card To A Friend Day
- December 5th: International Ninja Day (how fun is this one?)
- March 23rd: National Chip and Dip Day
Ah, Dip Day. Doesn’t that just bring a smile to your face? To clarify, chips have a place on the day, too. However, we are here for the dip. After all, a chip is just the vehicle, right? The dip has the main character’s energy. Thus, it will be our focus today.
So, how did the dip get a day? What’s the history of the dip?
I’m no researcher. I prefer a cursory glance (aka, I’m lazy) when a grade is not tied to the assignment. The following is what I gleaned about dips:
- The parlor was a room within our home that once held our deceased family member(s) before burial. Essentially, the wake was held in the home. Thankfully, funeral parlors began providing this service in the 1920s.
- Parlors later became a fun location as families gathered around to listen to the radio in the 1930s.
- By the 1940s, architects changed the name and were now referring to this space as a living room.
- Then came TV in the 1950s and the living room is where we spent a lot of time. The living room was especially popular when we entertained guests. Live ones (:
- Around the 1950s, dips started popping up in cookbooks as we continued to entertain and feed our guests.
- Wikipedia credits Lipton, in part, and the advertising campaign of their French onion dip recipe.
Of course, you can go back further and you’ll find mention of the word dip in the 13th century. The Aztecs had guacamole. But they didn’t have Lipton Soup Mix to make Onion Dip. They also didn’t know about the keto cheesecake dip. Luckily, we do!
Following a low-carb diet can present some challenges if you try to find a replacement for common foods. I’m thinking about the obvious ones like pasta and bread. The trickle-down effect includes favorite dishes like pizza and penne a la vodka.
There are now some great replacement items on the market and many creative recipes keeping those daily carb totals in check while still enjoying the classics.
Luckily for us, many dips are cream cheese, sour cream, or mayo-based with elements of cheese and veggies that all fit within our goals. Yay for us!
Have you made creamy spinach and artichoke dip? To me, it’s a low-carb rite of passage. Here are 2 fun ones to try:

But today, I’m more interested in a dip as dessert. So let’s get into it!
KETO CHEESECAKE DIP RECIPE
This truly is an easy one. Get out your food processor or blender and whip a softened block of cream cheese.
Next, add a cup of heavy whipping cream and then begin to build your dessert dip with the flavors you like the most. I added my favorite sweet but not too sweet Lakanto Powdered Monkfruit Sweetener and then 2 of my absolute favorite flavor combinations. Cheesecake pudding and almond extract.
Play around with the flavors until you’re happy. Then, add 1/4 cup of frozen strawberries to give your dip a fun pink hue, and fold in 1/4 cup of Lily’s sugar-free chocolate chips. Reserve a bit of each to garnish the top and you’re done!
That’s really all there is to this dip. Except you’ll need a dipping vehicle of course. Usually, my move is to bake low-carb tortillas with a touch of spray oil and cinnamon. I also baked a tortilla in a cup shape to hold the dip. It was and continues to be delicious. I’m eating some right now!
It’s straightforward to use a tortilla as a bowl. Here, I smushed a keto-approved one around the inside of an oven-safe dish and baked it at 425 degrees for about 10 minutes. Then, I removed it and let it bake on the rack for another 3 – 5 minutes. This ensures the bottom is crispy enough to hold the dip.
