This healthier hot spinach and artichoke dip is lightened up by trading sour cream and cream cheese for Greek yogurt, and loading it up with spinach and artichoke. Full of flavour with both parmesan and asiago cheese, this is a party favourite that tastes great and you can feel good about eating!
Who can resist hot spinach and artichoke dip? I certainly can't, I'm a sucker for it at parties and if I see it on a restaurant menu I've just got to have it.
Usually, this dish is loaded with high fat, high calorie ingredients like sour cream, cream cheese, mayo AND cheese which are all ingredients I love but I prefer to eat them in moderation.
I wanted to make a spinach and artichoke dip I could feel good about eating regularly and not just on special occasions, so I made a few healthier changes. I swapped out cream cheese and sour cream and used Greek yogurt for a base, and I really packed it in with both spinach and artichokes to up the nutritional profile.
The result is this healthier hot spinach and artichoke recipe and let me tell you it's just as tasty and addictive as the original. I'm not ashamed to admit that we grabbed a bag of tortilla chips and called this a light dinner!
