Spinach Artichoke Dip

Spinach artichoke dip is delicious stuff. It’s savory, toothsome and great with any number of foods you care to serve it with. See suggestions below!

What Is Spinach Artichoke dip?

Spinach artichoke dip is a white dip typically made with lots of mayonnaise, sour cream, cream cheese and regular shredded cheese. It’s a fat bomb in a bowl, to say the least. And in my little world, that sort of negates any nutrition you might get from the spinach or artichokes.

But I’m happy to report that this recipe changes all that!

What Makes This Spinach Artichoke Dip Healthy?

  • Less fat – For starters, the fat content of this recipe has been greatly reduced, compared to more traditional recipes. While this recipe still uses some mayo, it’s a far cry from the tons of fat in other recipes.
  • More Nutrition – Instead of using high fat dairy to create this dip, the base is actually made mostly of beans! Hello fiber!

What You’ll Need

10 oz. package frozen spinach – You’ll want to thaw this in the fridge overnight at the very least. A full 24 hours is best. Once thawed drain it well. Let is sit in a strainer for a while to get as much liquid out as possible.

14 oz. can artichoke hearts – Again, these need to be well drained. Let them sit in a strainer for a few minutes.

15 oz. can cannellini beans – These too need to be rinsed and well drained.

⅓ cup mayo – Use a mayo you feel comfortable with. Choose one without added sugar or make your own Homemade Mayo.

1 tsp. garlic powder – I used garlic granules, but garlic powder is about the same, flavor-wise. Use either one.

½ tsp. salt – I used pink Himalayan salt. But use what you have on hand.

½ tsp. ground black pepper – You could also use white pepper. Black pepper is just what I had on hand.
