Skinny Spinach Dip

I often use Greek yogurt or cottage cheese in place of sour cream. It reduces most of that nasty fat and adds a ton of protein. Cottage Cheese is a bit more “kid friendly” or “picky eater friendly” Just make sure to first blend the cottage cheese to a smooth consistency—no one will be the wiser 😉

This recipe is for my Spinach Dip... but I often use just the Cottage cheese & ranch packet to make Veggie Dip. If you want to turn it into “salad dressing” just thin it out with a little skim milk (or even water works!!)

Happy (healthy) Snacking!!  Lisa

Ingredients needed:
(1) 10 oz container of frozen chopped spinach – defrost and squeeze dry

(2) 5 oz cans of sliced water chestnuts – dice into small pieces

(1) 24 oz container of low-fat cottage cheese – blend in food processor or blender until smooth

1 packet ranch dressing OR Knorr Veg. Soup mix ( I like the Knorr)

Then just mix well & chill for at least 1 hour for flavors to blend
Serve with fresh cut veggies.
