Healthy Spinach Dip – Yum!

So I said I would recreate this well known dip in to a healthier version. It would be great for Saturday nights in with the girls or nibbles at a dinner party just serve with Crackers, Breadsticks, Homemade bread, Doritos or whatever takes your fancy!

~100g Baby Spinach leaves
~100g reduced fat cream cheese
~4 Tbsps of low fat Natural Yogurt
~1 baby onion or shallot, finely diced
~1/2 tsp garlic powder
~Tbsp lemon juice
~Salt & Freshly ground pepper to taste
~Paprika (optional)

I cook half the spinach and leave the other half raw for some crunch, you can cook it all if you prefer. Rinse in water then put in to a microwaveable bowl, cover and steam for around 2 minutes until cooked. Remove from the bowl and squeeze the excess water from the spinach the roughly chop up..

Mix the yogurt and cream cheese together add lemon juice and the garlic. Add spinach, onion, salt and pepper to taste. Check the seasoning and then add paprika if using.

Happy Dipping! 🙂 😀
