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.
Go get your Avocado, Spinach, and Artichoke Dip on! And make sure you check out Love Real Food. I think everyone NEEDS this cookbook. It is filled with over 100 feel-good vegetarian recipes, tips, resources, and gorgeous photos. And did I mention Kathryne has the cutest dog, Cookie? Our boys are in love with Cookie. They steal the cookbook from me so they can say hi to the doggy:) Love Real Food is a WINNER! Congrats, Kathryne!

this dip looks seriously gorgeous! i love that spinach & artichoke dip is getting a modern makeover, with better for you ingredients…mostly because i’ve been guilty on multiple occasions of snack-cidentally eating a whole tub of dip for dinner! xx
You are going to LOVE this one!
Stunning! Avocado has sooooo many health benefits, great recipe.
Thank you! It’s so good!
LOVE this dip!
I LOVE this Maria! Artichoke dip with no mayo!!!
It’s my new favorite!
It’s a winner!
hey girl- this dip looks amazing!
Love the sound of avocado spinach and artichoke dip!
Maria, thank you so much for sharing! I’m so glad you all enjoyed this dip, and I really appreciate your support! Cookie says hi to the boys!
We LOVED the dip and LOVE the book! Congrats friend! xo
Love this recipe! I did not have spinach so I used KALE. I used as a spread for wraps filled with veggies…so tasty. Enjoying this dip allows peace of mind as the ingredients are nutritious and delicious.
This looks so good so I’m going to have to try it. I love your other dips recipes too!
I love avocado! This Avocado, Spinach, and Artichoke Dip recipe is amazing!
Made this AVOCADO, SPINACH, And ARTICHOKE DIP tonight.
I only have one thing to say about it, Beyond EXCELLENT!!
I rate the recipes that I try – so I know how we liked them – this is SO good It got the first ever rating of Beyond Excellent!!
Yay! I think it is beyond excellent too:)
Oh, my stars! I love guacamole–have been making my own for the past 30 years–and artichoke/spinach dip, so I can easily imagine this has to be exceptionally good! I’ll make a batch the way it’s written, and then after that I might add some fresh pico de gallo to it. Since I live alone and never have to feed anyone else, I can play with my food, make the combinations I’ve always wanted to try, but knew I’d be criticized for by housemates. No more; this woman lives alone now, and it’s my time to enjoy eating the healthy things that others turn their noses up at!
Is the spinach cooked or raw?
I think that it is one great article, really helpful for me to learn the avocado spinach artichoke recipe. Specifically its texture and smoothness. I will try the recipe on this week end. Love your Blog.
Just made this and it’s fantastic! The flavors of all ingredients are distinct, but they combine beautifully. A great healthy and easy appetizer option that I’ll definitely make again.
Glad you liked the dip!
I just made this tonight. Great recipe! Love all of the flavors together, so good!
How will avocado hold up if i make the dip the day before I need it?
It’s fine if you make it a day before, just press plastic wrap onto the top of the dip and store in the fridge.
This looks so delish! Is the spinach raw or cooked before putting in the processor? Can’t wait to try!
Do you use fresh spinach or frozen? If you use fresh, do you cook it first? Thanks!
Fresh and you don’t have to cook it.
OMG… I am totally obsessed with this dip! Made it for Father’s Day and everyone went nuts over it!
This recipe is wonderful! I used it in a grilled cheese sandwich. Spread the dip on both pieces of bread (home made orange rye bread), added pre-cooked bacon and dutch gouda chesse. It was heavenly!
THIS IS SO AMAZING!!!!!!!
Should you use fresh spinach leaves or canned?
I use fresh.
Made this without the oil, used an extra tablespoon of lemon juice, and just hand chopped the spinach and hearts. It turned out great!
Can you eat this warm or is it best cold?
I haven’t tried it warm.
I am wanting to make this for a party …how many people will this recipe serve?
I would say 6, makes 1 1/2 cups.
Brought this to my “supper club” last night. We have a gluten free ?dairy free in the group. Everyone loved it!
I doubled the recipe because it didn’t seem like that much.
I used one 6 oz jar marinated hearts and another 1/2 cup hearts in water(only because I didn’t have another jar of marinated) I kept everything else the same.
Thought next time I might use oil/marinade from artichokes? Although it was so good and healthy as is.
I give it 5 stars! (it wouldn’t let me do that above?)
This sounds so good. I have jarred artichokes that aren’t marinated. What should I do to substitute them?
You can use them! Just drain them. Enjoy!
Really yummy and so ready to pull together. Love the color too!
Was delicious and so simple to make. Next time I need to make sure to dip more veggies than pita bread but will make again for sure.
Amazing. Made this for Easter. Was a hit
My new favorite dip!!! Perfect for all, including your favorite vegan friends & family!
