Spinach Dip

05 Jul

This afternoon I had some time to play around in the kitchen and was in the mood for snacking.  Here is a recipe remake that is sure to keep your tastebuds happy!  I have always had a weakness for creamy dips and spreads at parties and barbecues so I decided to make one that I could feel good about eating.  Typically this vegetable dip package calls for mayonaise and sour cream, but I used plain greek non-fat yogurt, which is only 60 calories in 1/2 cup and double the protein of regular yogurt!  Plus, greek yogurt is thicker than regular yogurt, so the texture stays very close to regular spinach dip.  I have been enjoying this dip with special k multi-grain crackers or celery sticks,  but torn french or Hawaiian bread is another crowd pleaser.

Enjoy!
