Kid Approved Spinach Dip

Kid Approved Spinach Dip

This creamy spinach dip is best served with crisp vegetables at your next playdate, sandwich spread, or a lunch box snack with carrots and crackers.

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.

Kid Approved Spinach Dip


  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 2 cups 1x

Description

This creamy spinach dip is best served with crisp vegetables at your next playdate, sandwich spread, or a lunch box snack with carrots and crackers.


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 cups of wilted and drained spinach
  • 1 container of Greek yogurt (you can use sour cream)
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp of garlic (2 small cloves)
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Instructions

  • Thaw frozen spinach and drain excess water/liquid or cook fresh spinach until wilted, then cool and drain excess spinach juices.
  • Throw all ingredients into food processor or blender for creamy results. Pulse for a few minutes, use a spatula to clean sides of bowl and pulse once more until you have a creamy green mixture.
  • Serve with your favorite vegetables or crackers.

Notes

  • If you want the chunks of spinach, you can finally chop wilted spinach, crush garlic and stir in all ingredients instead of using a kitchen appliance – consistency won’t be the same, however it will taste delicious.
  • You can keep this in the fringe in a seal tight container for up to 3 days.
  • Substitute the Greek yogurt for sour cream (I’ve used both but prefer yogurt).
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
