We’re condiment people. As in, a solid 50% of our fridge is consumed by sauces and dips – our favorite store bought sauces, mason jars of homemade romesco, little blog experiments in the back corner, the works.

So today we’re whipping up one of my most beloved dips, Spinach Artichoke! This is always a popular favorite at potlucks and tailgates, but it’s usually loaded with mayonnaise and sour cream.

So in the name of health (and so that we can guzzle down even more of this stuff without guilt), today we’re making a healthy Spinach Artichoke Dip using Greek yogurt!

Ingredients for Healthy Spinach Artichoke Dip

You just need a handful of ingredients to make this stovetop Spinach Artichoke Dip.

  • Creamy Base: The base of this healthy dip is protein-rich Greek yogurt and creamy cheese! (Learn to make your own Greek yogurt here).
  • Cheeses: It’s not a cheesy artichoke dip without the cheese! We’ll use grated parmesan and mozzarella for maximum flavor and melty cheese goodness.
  • Frozen Spinach: Thaw then squeeze as much moisture from the spinach as possible before adding it to the mix.
  • Canned Artichoke Hearts: Drain and cut the artichoke hearts into rough pieces then mix in with everything.
  • Extra Flavors: We’re adding garlic for extra deliciousness. You Can also add canned diced jalapeños if you like it spicy!

How to make Spinach Artichoke Dip in the oven

While I prefer making this on the stove, you can make Spinach Artichoke Dip in the oven too! This is best if you want to have a melty cheese crust on top. Simply stir everything together and pour into an oven-safe dish. Top with a sprinkle more of cheese and bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes, until hot and bubbly.
