Skinny Spinach Dip

This Skinny Spinach Dip has all the great flavor as the original, but you don’t have to feel as guilty about eating it! 

Hey ya’ll. I’m Jessie from Living Mostly Meatless and I’m happy to be here to help Rachel today.

Today I’m bringing you Spinach Dip. I grew up in Michigan on a lake so whenever I get a little bit of a dose of Vitamin D I crave spinach dip- because that was always our “boat snack.” So last week when it was almost 60 degrees in Chicago and I went for a really long walk, that craving kicked in. I went to make it and after looking at the ingredients I knew that there was no way I could feel good about serving a giant dish full sour cream and mayonnaise. I started playing around with it and settled on a mixture of Greek Yogurt, lemon juice, and Miracle Whip. Rest assured that it was the favorite dish of our Superbowl Party and no fan complained. I don’t think I could even tell the difference. I hope you enjoy it!

  5. Lol Mira! You know what’s funny? I hate mayo. Absolutely hate. Loathe. Will not eat anything it touches. Same with ketchup. I know, I’m an oddball. I would like to agree w/Rachel and say that it will be good if you sub it, but I would never try it. You hopefully would like it better though. ;)

  6. Miracle Whip is nasty! Why would you ruin a good recipe with that slop?

    • Miracle Whip is strange, it seems to be one of those things that people either love or hate! This is Jessie’s recipe, not mine, but I’m sure it would be great with mayo instead of Miracle Whip if you’re not a fan.

  7. This is a great recipe! I love the use of yogurt combined with the miracle whip. I bet it is delicious!

  8. Mouth is watering! I love that you use Miracle Whip too-bless you! :)

  9. You could sub regular mayonnaise Claire. Thanks for the comments!

  10. I gotta give this a try :)

    “Spice it Up”

  11. That sounds delicious. Is there something I could use instead of miracle whip? We don’t get that in Australia.

  12. I just posted a hot spinach dip the other day and I was thinking that I really need to make a “cold” one! LOVE that you use greek yogurt in yours.

    I grew up in WI – just next door to you :-)

  13. Who doesn’t love a good spinach dip.. I like the addition of grated carrot and the Greek Yogurt. Is the Miracle Whip less fat and calories that Mayo? I’ve never used it.. I’ll have to check it out. Thanks

  14. I love a good spin dip recipe. Who can’t resist?!
