INGREDIENTS
  

  • 18-20 oz Fresh Spinach washed, dried (salad spinners are good for this), chopped fine
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt for healthier option choose non-fat
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce or 1 ½ teaspoons, will give a powerful umami flavor
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon lemon or orange juice fresh preferred as well

INSTRUCTIONS
 

  • In a medium bowl mix room temperature cream cheese and yogurt until just combined.
  • Add freshly chopped spinach leaves, salt, pepper, lemon juice Worcestershire sauce, onion and garlic powder.
  • Enjoy right away or for better taste allow to sit in the fridge for 10-15 minutes for flavors to blend.
  • Serve with crackers, bread, chips, vegetable straws.

NOTES

  • Spinach - fresh is always best. Frozen will not work in the cold dip as it releases too much water and flavor will be off. 
  • Storing instructions - Refrigerate for up to 3 days. Freezing is not recommended for dairy-based sauces due to loss of texture and separation.
  • For healthier creamy dip use low-fat yogurt and cream cheese. However, your dip will be more ‘’thinner’’. You can fix it by adding more spinach!
  • Can you freeze spinach dip? Creamy and dairy-based dips and sauces just don’t freeze well, and this spinach dip will not taste good after thawing as it will become watery, grainy and some separation will occur.
