This amazing and
I literally smother this keto Green Goddess Dip on everything. Jazz up boring chicken, load it into the groove in celery, smother it on hot veggies, and my all-time favorite, pile it into hot, cooked mushrooms like in this Green Goddess Stuffed Mushrooms recipe.
There’s something about the combination of fresh parsley, shallots, garlic, and cream cheese that tastes like a dream! I almost always have a bowl of this addictive stuff in my fridge, and it is literally a meal saver.
It doesn’t take much to make this easy dip. Here’s what you’ll need:
- Cream cheese – Softened.
- Fresh parsley – Pull off the tough stems.
- Shallot – This looks like a small onion.
- Garlic – Just one clove. You can add more, but the garlic flavor will intensify as the dip sits.
- Lemon juice – From a fresh lemon.
- Salt and pepper – To taste.

Chef Jenn’s Tips
- Start with softened cream cheese. It’ll combine much better with your herbs.
- Don’t have fresh herbs? Use dry! Use 1/2 teaspoon of dried parsley, onion powder, and garlic powder. It won’t taste quite the same, but it’ll still be great!
- Go easy on the garlic! It doesn’t take much fresh garlic to overpower this recipe. Start with one medium size clove of fresh garlic, and see how you like it before adding more!
- Like things spicy? Add a teaspoon or two of chopped jalapenos or even a pinch of red pepper flakes.
- You can use store-brand cream cheese to save a few coins.
- Cream cheese usually keeps in the fridge for a few weeks, so if you see it on sale, buy in bulk and save!
When I can’t stand the thought of boring veggies, I whip out the Green Goddess Dip to dip into. You can also add a spoonful to jazz up scrambled eggs, put a scoop onto a hot steak to add herby goodness, or just eat it by the spoonful.
When I’m hungry for a snack, there’s nothing more satisfying than a carrot stick dunked into this creamy concoction. My kids, who aren’t doing a keto diet, even spread it on crackers or toast for a quick snack or breakfast.
This dip will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week. Here’s a tip: put a bit of tape on the top of the storage container and jot the date onto it. Now you’ll have no trouble remembering how long that keto dip has been in the fridge.
How Many Carbs are in Green Goddess Dip?
With 4 grams of carbs per quarter cup, and no real fiber, this keto dip recipe comes out to 4 net carbs per 1/4 cup serving. 1/4 cup is a lot! A spoonful or two is hardly any carbs, so get munching!
Turn This Dip Into a SAuce
It doesn’t take much to turn this recipe into an AMAZING sauce that’s tasty on top of Zucchini Noodles, grilled meats, fish or seafood, and more.
Get out your trusty skillet and some heavy whipping cream. Add 1 cup of heavy whipping cream to the skillet, then add 2-3 tbsp of this keto dip.
Mix well, heating gently to dissolve the cream cheese and herb mixture. Add a bit more if you like the flavor a bit stronger.
Now, just season with a touch of salt and pepper, and serve over your favorite ingredients! Yum!
