Skinny Spinach Dip

With football season in full swing and holiday parties/pitch-ins happening all the time I wanted to provided you with another reduced calorie dip option.  Just like the Skinny Pimento Cheese I featured as last week’s recipe, this Skinny Spinach Dip is a great appetizer – only 4 ingredients, almost no prep time, and you won’t feel guilty eating it.

Skinny Spinach Dip:
2 cups (16 oz.) plain Greek yogurt non-fat (0%)
1 cup low fat mayo (I use Hellmann’s.)
10 oz. frozen, chopped spinach
1 package Knorr Vegetable Recipe mix (found in the soup aisle)
*I found this recipe on the Knorr site awhile ago and want to share with you all.

Instructions:
- Dethaw spinach.
- Pat dry with paper towels to remove excess water.
- Pour all 4 ingredients into a medium sized bowl.
- Stir until mixed evenly.
- Serve with reduced fat crackers or a sliced baguette.

Now the health statistics:
This recipe makes about 4 cups.
I split it into 1/4 cup (4 tbsp) serving sizes which makes it about 16 servings total.
This provides a serving twice a large as the 2 tbsp. serving size most store bought hummus, dips, etc. allow for only 45 calories!
If you split this Skinny Spinach Dip into a 2 tbsp. serving size like most store bought spinach dips it would have only 23 calories a serving.  Way less than any store bought spinach dip!
Great tasting, easy to make, and super low calorie.
Now you don’t have to feel guilty snacking at your next gathering, make this Skinny Spinach Dip, something you can eat and enjoy.

    I used to make this and serve it in a hollowed out round sour dough loaf. Then cut up the bits of bread to dip into the sauce.

    I used to have trouble waiting for the spinach to thaw though! It is pretty good and very easy too. A crowd pleaser for sure.
