Creamy Spinach Dip

January/February 2009

Your rating: None Average: 3.5 (149 votes)

Try this light spinach dip made healthier with reduced-fat cream cheese, nonfat yogurt and low-fat cottage cheese instead of full-fat cheese, mayonnaise and sour cream. It will save you a whopping 84 calories and 10 grams of fat per serving when compared to traditional versions. Serve it with pita chips and crunchy vegetables or spread it on a sandwich.

"A wee bit oniony so will do about 1/2 the shallot next time. It does need a bit of something to round out the flavor, needs a bit of fat or something like that. I will try adding a tsp of low fat mayo or miracle whip the next time around...

6 Reviews for Creamy Spinach Dip


My family loved this dip--even our 2nd grader ate his spinach this way! I added a sprinkle of garlic salt at the end, because I was out of fresh garlic. Next time, we'll reduce the onion a smidge and add 1 clove of minced garlic. I'm hoping that will pump up the flavor. Overall, though, we loved it, and will definitely be making it over and over again! I bet it would look and taste great with chopped red pepper for the holidays! :)
