As a staple at many parties, fondue is a popular appetizer that’s notoriously bad for anyone counting calories, fat, and carbs. It’s no surprise that dipping cheese, bread, and other unhealthy items into melted cheese isn’t great for your health, but with a few adjustments you can serve a healthier fondue.
First of all, choose a low-fat, low-moisture cheese. Low-fat cheese sometimes doesn’t melt as well as its regular counterpart, but choosing a low-moisture version will ensure you still get gooey, melty results. Second, choose healthier dipping options than the traditional bread and cheese cubes. Vegetables such as carrots, colorful peppers, celery, cucumbers, and others are great for dipping. Experiment with various cheeses, as not all brands melt as well as others.
