Spinach Artichoke Cream Cheese Spread

Spinach Artichoke Cream Cheese Spread

I’ve made this a few times in the last few weeks. One for a family party, once for me, and once for a big party of women (church gathering).

This is an awesome recipe that tastes better than most restaurant spinach artichoke dips. So far most everyone who has tried it has loved it and asked me for the recipe. It differs from normal Spinach Artichoke Dip because it is so light and fluffy. The texture really is perfect for spreading on crackers, chips, grilled sandwiches, or as a dip.

It is kind of interesting how I came up with this recipe. I wanted to make a large batch of my Crowd-Pleasing Spinach Artichoke Dip (found here) but my food processor wasn’t working. So, I decided I’d try mixing it all together in our BlendTec Blender-seriously they are amazing blenders by the way. The consistency came out different than normal dip but I liked it. So I baked it as normal and it has become a hit.

Frankly I’m a big fan of normal Spinach Artichoke dip but I LOVE this recipe! The texture is awesome. If you too like traditional Artichoke Spinach dip, this is a Must-Try!

    This is the best artichoke, spinach dip I have done. Cut the recipe in half used whipped cream cheese and fresh spinach. The only different thing I did was add fresh lemon juice and some zest instead of so much garlic. The lemon did add some zip for me but I love fresh citrus in most things. My friends loved it!!!!! I could live on it. LOL Nice to use fresh spinach instead of frozen. Thank you for giving this “Ole lady” something new to enjoy.
