Why You’ll Love This

If you love the popular cream cheese stuffed mini sweet peppers, but are looking for a slightly healthier alternative that also benefits your PCOS, this is for you. This snack swaps out the cream cheese for Greek yogurt to really level up the nutritional value…and it’s super simple to make! 

Thanks to the Greek yogurt, each serving is packed with 10g of protein, meaning it’s going to actually keep you feeling full! In addition to that protein, you’ll get 3g of fiber from the bell peppers to make this a balanced snack option that is great for blood sugar levels. 

Plus, you’re also getting loads of vitamin C which can improve egg quality if fertility is on your mind. 

Ingredients You’ll Need

Just three ingredients is all you need! Here’s what they are:

Mini sweet peppers – these mini bell peppers are so cute and easy for adding that crunch factor while also adding a bunch of nutrients. 

Greek yogurt – you’ll need about ½ a cup of plain greek yogurt for this. I generally use a full-fat greek yogurt because it gives a creamier texture, but you can use any greek yogurt that you prefer. 

Everything but the bagel seasoning – I love this one from Trader Joe’s but another great option is this one – it’s cheaper too!

How To Make

  3. Fill the cut peppers with a spoonful of the Greek yogurt mixture
  4. Sprinkle with additional seasoning if desired. Enjoy!

FAQ

Can I make this ahead of time and store in the fridge? 

The dip can absolutely be made ahead of time and stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. While you can scoop the dip into the bell peppers and store in the fridge, it’s going to taste the best if you assemble them at the time you’re going to be eating them. 

Is this a good snack for PCOS?

Of course! These stuffed mini sweet peppers combine fiber with protein – a perfect combo for balanced blood sugar levels! If you want some more guidance on how to eat well for PCOS, check out my downloadable ebook: The PCOS Playbook

Can I eat dairy with PCOS?

There’s no conclusive research to suggest that everyone with PCOS needs to avoid dairy. Research has shown that fermented dairy, like Greek yogurt, can actually be very beneficial for PCOS. 

Some people may feel better by avoiding or limiting dairy but others may not need to worry about avoiding dairy. 

Variations

  • Short on time? Make the dip & just dip the whole mini pepper into it
  • Dairy free? Swap the Greek yogurt out for a dairy-free yogurt 
  • Use other veggies, such as cucumbers, celery, baby carrots, or broccoli with this Greek yogurt dip
  • Add extra seasonings like garlic powder or onion powder for an extra kick
  • Wrap these mini stuffed peppers into a whole grain wrap with some chicken for an easy lunch idea
