Sometimes to get your kids to eat or try new vegetables, you need to get creative, for example, accompanying them with a delicious dip or sauce. I personally love dips and sauces and feel they elevate any snack or meal. Although most kids put off eating spinach, mine certainly do, this dip is packed with it, and the creaminess from the Greek yogurt and mayonnaise make this dip heavenly.
At this point I’ve made many variations of my spinach dip some of which include, artichoke, red peppers and cream cheese base but the following recipe is the one that has been best received by my three little critics. So let us get to business, you will need 1 cup of thawed frozen spinach or wilted down spinach. 1 cup of Greek yogurt, 1 cup of mayonnaise and 2 small or 1 big clove of garlic and some seasoning. Wring out the liquid in the spinach, you want to remove as much of the spinach juice as you can. Next, throw all ingredients into a food processor and process until well combined.
Because it is so simple to whip up, it is one of my favorites to serve on playdates or as an appetizer for a dinner party. It stores well in the fridge so you can even make it the day before.
With this dip, I hope you see an influx in requests for vegetable snacks from your kids and their friends. If you tried it, please share your success and tag @my_picky_eater on Instagram or comment and rate below.Print
