Tales from a 20-Something's Kitchen.

One girl's mission to take on Pinterest. And win. And eat some great food in the process.

Reduced Calorie, Reduced Fat, Spinach and Artichoke Dip


So, I’ve recently made Spinach and Artichoke dip (pretty successfully I might add)


But this one promises to be healthy-ish, so why not? The trick to this is basically reduced fat cream cheese, low fat milk, greek yogurt, and less cheese.

Confession. I already had a whole block of regular cream cheese in the fridge. Why go out and buy more? So, this recipe may not be as reduced as it should be. I already drink low fat milk so that was easy. The less cheese broke my heart a little bit but I honestly didn’t miss it too much in the final product.

But the greek yogurt. That was an adventure. The recipe specifically calls for 2%. But literally every single 2% yogurt at the grocery store was flavored. And I really didn’t want my spin dip to taste like toasted coconut. I was about to give up and use 0%, but then I saw one of those yocrunch type ones? So I used that yogurt and ate the “choco balls” separately haha.

Also, both grocery stores I went to have never even heard of frozen artichoke hearts, so I just went with the canned ones. Worked just as well I think.

Which is actually what this recipe is. With the ingredients, this is a healthier version of the traditional appetizer, but I honestly think it tasted just as good. Chalk this one up as a win.
