Keto Spinach Artichoke Dip
When it comes to keto appetizers, my favorite recipes to make are buffalo cauliflower bites, parmesan crisps, and this keto spinach artichoke dip.
If there is one thing I love doing more than anything, it is entertaining. I love having friends over for a long dinner, starting with a plethora of appetizers and ending with a show stopping dessert. If I can find an excuse to throw a dinner, I will do it.
While I do tend to make quite a few desserts, my favorite part of any dinner party is the appetizers. Growing up, my mom would make this incredible spinach and artichoke dip and I would request it for any semblance of a celebration. Since going keto, I’ve slightly adapted my mom’s original recipe, without sacrificing taste!
I’ve been meaning to share a keto spinach artichoke dip recipe for quite some time. It’s been my go-to appetizer to make whenever I’m entertaining, and it is always the first thing eaten up. Now, this dip may look incredibly fancy, but I promise you, it is SO easy to make and takes seconds to prep.
No sugar and no grains are needed, but you’d never be able to tell. The texture is extra thick and creamy, with bites of artichokes and spinach throughout. It’s salty, cheesy, savory, and with the subtle tang from the artichoke hearts!
This summer looks like a big one with plenty of entertaining and I cannot wait to make this dip on repeat- No one ever believes me when I tell them it is low carb!
How do you make a keto spinach artichoke dip?
- Artichoke hearts– Jarred or canned artichoke hearts. Avoid artichokes soaked in oil, but rather a brine or spring water.
- Frozen spinach– Thawed and with the excess liquid removed.
- Cream cheese– Full fat and softened to room temperature.
- Mayonnaise– Use a good quality mayonnaise with no added sugar.
- Sour cream– Adds some tang and extra creaminess.
- Shredded cheese– Use a full flavored cheese, like extra tasty or gouda.
- Salt and pepper– To taste.
Start by chopping the artichoke into bite sized pieces and mix with the thawed spinach. Next, add the softened cream cheese to a mixing bowl and beat together until smooth. Add the mayonnaise and sour cream and mix until combine. Add the artichokes, spinach, shredded cheese, salt, and pepper, and mix until just combined.
Now, transfer the dip into a bowl and serve at room temperature or microwave for 1-2 minutes, until warm.
