Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip

This healthy spinach artichoke dip is so good! I lightened it up by using fat-free Greek yogurt and half the mayo, which worked out great. It’s low in carbs and has five grams of protein per serving. If you’re looking for more ideas, I also have a cold Parmesan Spinach Dip and a Hot Spinach Dip without the artichokes. And a few more of my party app favorites are this Buffalo Chicken DipMini Bell Peppers Loaded Turkey “Nachos,” and Baked Buffalo Chicken Jalapeño Poppers.

What is spinach artichoke dip made of?

  • Artichokes: Drain one can of artichoke hearts.
  • Spinach: Thaw one 10-ounce package of frozen spinach and squeeze out all the liquid. If you want to use fresh spinach, steam it first and then squeeze it.
  • Shallots: You can use red onion if you prefer.
  • Garlic: Peel one clove of garlic.
  • Greek Yogurt: Get fat-free yogurt.
  • Light Mayo: I know some of you don’t like mayonnaise, but I promise you can’t taste it. I highly recommend using it, but if you would rather not, sub light sour cream instead.
  • Parmesan: Grate a good-quality parmesan, or swap it for Pecorino Romano, which is usually a little cheaper.
  • Mozzarella: You’ll need four ounces of shredded part-skim mozzarella, which is about one cup.
    Salt and Pepper, to taste

How to Make Spinach Artichoke Dip

  1. Food Processor: Coarsely chop the artichokes, garlic, and shallots in a food processor.
  2. Combine the remaining ingredients with the artichoke mixture.
  3. Bake: Put the spinach dip in an oven-proof dish and bake at 375°F for 20 to 25 minutes.

What to Serve with Spinach Artichoke Dip

I always put out a variety of dippers when I serve dip at a party and include veggies for a low-carb option.

  • Chips: Pita, tortilla, or bagel chips
  • Crackers: gluten-free rice crackers, or whole grain
  • Veggies: Carrots, mini bell peppers, celery, cucumber
  • Sliced Baguette

Can you make Spinach Artichoke Dip ahead?

Yes, this spinach dip is great to prep before your guests arrive. Here are a few tips:

  • You can make it one day in advance and store it in the refrigerator. Pull it out 30 minutes before baking and heat it until warm. It may take an extra five to 10 minutes to heat through.
  • If you’re serving a crowd, you can double the recipe and bake it for the same amount of time.
  • You can put the dip in a slow cooker after you bake it and keep it on low so it stays warm throughout your party.
  • If you have leftover dip, it’ll last in the refrigerator for about four days, and you can reheat it in the microwave.

Yeah baby! Bring this hot spinach and artichoke dip to your next party, no one will know it's light! Easy to make ahead then bake when you're ready to eat.

  1. Extremely easy to make and delicious. I didn’t have mozzarella so I just used the shredded blend I had. Also used grated parmesan Romano cheese and 12 oz of the spinach. Came out perfect.

  2. A friend brought this to a party last night, and it was delicious. When I asked for the recipe, I was pleasantly surprise by the ingredients and simplicity of the recipe. 

  3. This is a household favorite! I just chop the artichokes by hand and hand mix everything by hand. I just made it with reduced fat mozzarella, minced onion flakes, garlic powder, salt, and Target brand grated cheese because that’s what I had. It was awesome! I eat it with Way Better sweet potato chips and it’s sooo good! 
    Thank you for this recipe!

    1. I really like it with veggies! I use carrot sticks, slices of bell pepper, and even whole grape tomatoes.

  4. Love this delicious recipe! Has anyone made this in phyllo cups? I’m wondering how long to cook it in cups?

  5. This is so good…2 of us ate the entire batch in 2 days, whoops. I subbed half the mayo for yoghurt to make it a bit lighter too. Really good in a wrap with chicken.

    I used my blender to chop the artichokes. I kept them in water but then squeezed the water out after they were chopped up.

  6. My family now requests this at every family gathering! They think it’s my “specialty”! 😂 Thanks for the great recipe!

  7. Can this be prepared in a crock pot instead? I want to prepare it and keep it in the crock pot to take with me on a day trip and just plug it back in on arrival to warm it up for a potluck the same evening. Do you think that will work? Every recipe I have tried of your is delicious, by the way! I’m looking forward to this one as well.

    1. So so so good!!! Added a few splashes of hot sauce to it, it’s delicious! Thank you, Gina, for yet another winner!!

  8. I have made this a few times now. I think it’s the best spinach artichoke dip, skinny or not! People really don’t know it low calories. Such a great recipe!

  9. Love this dip!!  Making it next weekend for a party. Do you think this will do well if I put it in a small crock pot on low, so it stays warm?  I can monitor it but don’t want it to burn. 

  10. Love this dish, always an empty dish when I take it somewhere. I also add chopped water chestnuts to it for a little crunch. .

  11. If I wanted to use fresh artichokes would I need to modify the recipe and I’d so what would you recommend? 

  12. I want to bring this to a work potluck. I’d need to bake it the night before & re-heat it in the dreaded microwave oven. Anyone tried this? I’d love to bring this instead of something else!

  13. Absolutely delicious!!! My 10 month old grandson who is just starting table food loved it too!!
    Think this could be frozen and reheated???
