The benefits of greens mixed in the creamy mixture of cheese and milk provides the perfect dip for creamy crackers…. . A delightful treat for your family and friends. A yummy option for the calorie conscious as well.


Serve the way you want either with khakhras, cream crackers, vegetables etc. Usually there is lots of cheese in this dip, however you cut calories I reduced the cheese and to give the same thickness and texture added cornflour and milk that thickens it. Surely a must try!

I love asparagus and i love fondue so this was a no-brainer and a silky smooth one at that...rich taste and texture provides for a satisfying meal. I would recommend using baby asparagus or tinned variety for smoothness
