Yummy hot and skinny spinach dip!

 

I absolutely LOVE spinach dip during the holidays! However I don’t like how fattening it is so I usually avoid it. I found this delicious recipe that I am definitely going to serve at a party this year~ It is courtesy of Foodiesnpup blog.

Skinny Spinach Dip (3-4 servings)

  • 6-7 oz frozen spinach (half a 12-oz bag)
  • 1/3 c fat free Greek yogurt
  • 2 green onions, finely sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 c shredded part skim mozzarella
  • 1/4 c shredded Parmesan
  • pepper or red chili flakes (to taste)
Completely thaw your spinach either in the microwave or by letting sit for a day in the refrigerator.  Squeeze out as much liquid as you can by hand and then press between two paper towels to remove as much moisture as possible.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and spray a 4×4 dish or four 1-inch ramekins with non-stick.  In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well.  Transfer to prepared baking dish and bake for 25-30 minutes, until dip is bubbling and the cheese is starting to brown around the edges.  Serve hot.
This dip can be stored in the refrigerator for a day or so before it is baked.  Just cover a ramekin to store and pop it in the oven when you’re ready to eat it…easy as spinach pie.

 

Enjoy!!
