Super Green Spinach + Artichoke Dip

Healthy vegan spinach and artichoke dipEveryone loves a good dip and this recipe combines two of my personal favorites.

Here’s how this recipe came to be… I’m a sucker for holiday-themed recipes—regardless of how important the holiday really is.

Healthy spinach and artichoke dipThus, Saint Patricks Day—which I celebrated for the last time with a card-stock leprechaun hat in the 2nd grade—deserved a green recipe on the blog.

What is green? Spinach and avocado came to mind first. The blog hasn’t seen a dip in a while—so instead of choosing between a luscious guac or a creamy spinach + artichoke dip, I decided to combine the two. The results were magical.

Say hello to the the most delicious super green spinach + artichoke dip!

Vegan avodao dipThis recipe starts with an extra garlicky avocado base—almost like a whipped guac. It is creamy, flavorful, and perfectly tangy from a splash of lemon juice. Next we add in some artichoke and spinach—which add extra color, texture, and earthy flavor.

And that is it! In less than 5 minutes you can have this delicious dip on your table. I love serving it at parties with chips, gluten free crackers, and lots of sliced fresh veggies. For all the dip-lovers out there, this one combines the beloved guac + the classic spinach and artichoke dip perfectly—and is not a dip to miss.
