Super Skinny Slow Cooker Spinach and Artichoke Dip

It’s no secret I love spinach and artichoke dip. The best type of spinach and artichoke dip is one with lots of cream cheese, mayo and parmesan cheese, but obviously that isn’t too healthy. I’ve made 30 minute Creamy Spinach and Artichoke Dip and Spinach and Artichoke Dip Enchiladas, but I wanted to come up with a spinach and artichoke dip that was actually healthy.

Super Skinny Slow Cooker Spinach and Artichoke Dip. 112 Calories and 11g protein for about a 3/4 cup serving.

The secret ingredient……?

White Beans. Cannelini or Northern, whatever white bean you have on hand will add the creaminess that spinach and artichoke dip needs without all of the added fat and calories. My can of beans had 350 calories and 24 grams of protein and no fat. Compare these nutrition stats to other dips that typically use 1/4 cup of mayonnaise which has 230 calories, but 20 grams of fat and less than one gram of protein (and that’s not counting the cream cheese and other cheeses in their recipes!)

White Beans

I am imagining this dip spread on a piece of grilled chicken for a protein-packed meal that’s not skimping on flavor. I am not a nutritionist, but according to all of the nutrition stats on the ingredient packaging, each serving (about 3/4 cup!) would be about 112 calories, 11 grams of protein and very little fat (like less than 1/2 gram).

You definitely don’t need to feel guilty about stuffing your face with this dip!

Super Skinny Spinach and Artichoke Dip

*about* 112 calories, 11g protein and >1 gram of fat (about ten 3/4 cup servings)

4 cups frozen, chopped spinach
(1) 15.5 oz. can of white beans, blended
(2) 14 oz. cans of chopped artichoke hearts
4 oz. fat free cream cheese
10 oz. Greek yogurt
1 Tbls chopped garlic
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

  1. Blend white beans.
  2. Add everything to a slow cooker.
  3. Cook on low, about two hours until everything is melted together nicely.

Super Skinny Slow Cooker Spinach and Artichoke Dip. Never feel guilty again about eating a ton of this dip!
