Avocado Spinach Artichoke Dip is perfect for parties, potlucks, or every day snacking. Serve with pita chips, crackers, or vegetables.
Everyone likes a good dip. I dip, you dip, we ALL love to dip! I love making dips for parties, game day, movie night, every day snacking, and sometimes even dinner. A good dip served with veggies, chips, and crackers is sometimes my favorite dinner. I love being an adult so I can make the decision to eat dip for dinner:)
My new favorite dip is this Avocado, Spinach, and Artichoke Dip. It has all of my favorites in ONE dip. If you like guacamole and spinach artichoke dip, you will LOVE this easy dip. It’s the BEST of both dips in one bowl.
This amazing Avocado, Spinach, and Artichoke Dip recipe comes from my friend Kathryne’s new cookbook, Love Real Food (affiliate link). I met Kathryne years ago at Alt Summit, a blogging conference, and she told me she wanted to write a vegetarian cookbook. I told her she HAD to because I wanted to eat everything in her vegetarian cookbook. I am kind of selfish, I wanted this book for me because I love Kathryne’s recipes:)
Well, Kathryne did it, she published the most amazing vegetarian cookbook on the planet. I have A LOT of cookbooks and this is hands down my favorite cookbook I own because every single recipe is right up my alley. It is not just a coffee table book, although it is pretty enough to be one, this cookbook is going to LIVE in my kitchen because I am going to cook from it every single week of my life. I am going to make these healthy, fresh, simple, and mighty delicious recipes over and over.
I made the Avocado, Spinach, and Artichoke Dip the other day because we were watching the Warriors game and needed a little something, something to snack on. The dip only took a few minutes to make and it was a HUGE hit. I served the dip with homemade pita chips and cut up vegetables. I loved it and the boys loved it. We dominated the dip! It was the perfect game day snack. I know we will be making this dip on a regular basis.
A few Avocado, Spinach, and Artichoke Dip tips…I rhymed:)
- Make sure you use ripe avocados.
- I used our food processor to make the dip. If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a blender, just make sure you scrape down the sides of the blender several times and blend again. You want the dip to be smooth.
- The dip is fabulous with homemade pita chips. You can also serve the dip with store-bought pita chips, tortilla chips, crackers, or cut up vegetables.
- To store the dip, press a piece of plastic wrap against the surface of the dip to prevent it from browning. It will keep in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
- The dip makes a great healthy snack for parties, game day, potlucks, picnics, and barbecues.

They steal the cookbook from me so they can say hi to the doggy:) Love Real Food is a WINNER! Congrats, Kathryne!
