Use yogurt to make spinach and artichoke dip
Traditionally, most vegan spinach dips are made with a vegan sour cream substitute. The one I make is made with tofu, which is not to everyone’s liking, especially the non-vegans.
I decided to try something different by using a non-dairy yogurt to make my dip more compatible with everyone’s
I used a plain almond milk yogurt in this spinach dip. You could also use a plain coconut or soy yogurt in this recipe.
Many dairy free yogurts are also vegan, but don’t assume. Always check the label!
Making a vegan spinach artichoke dip recipe

How to make spinach artichoke dip even better!
Artichokes: Make sure you use the artichokes canned in water and not the type packaged in oil.
No need for all those extra calories. Plus the oil will make even the best vegan spinach artichoke dip runny.
Get rid of excess water: Make sure to squeeze out all the liquid from the thawed out spinach. (You’ll be surprised how much water there is!)
The easiest way I found to do it was to dump the thawed spinach into a bowl.
Then I placed a few paper towels on top of the spinach. I took the bowl to the sink, tipped it, and pressed down on the spinach. I did this a few times until all the water was pressed out.
You can also place the thawed spinach in a colander that’s been put in the sink or a larger bowl on the counter top. Then place paper towels on top of the spinach and press down, squeezing out the excess water.
Tips for making spinach and artichoke dip
Use a food chopper: Instead of using a knife, use a food chopper to cut up the artichokes and water chestnuts. It’ll save you so much time!
Make dip in a blender: You could also try making this vegan dip in a high speed blender or food processor.
Add different seasonings: Experiment! You can add a little dill (fresh or dried), Greek seasoning, or some hot sauce to this spinach artichoke dip recipe for fun.
