Spinach Artichoke Dip {Dairy & Soy Free}

For some reason I’ve been really craving spinach artichoke dip. I wanted dip that was rich, flavorful, and creamy… a dip that if I took it to a party no one would even wonder if I brought it. They would just assume that someone on a regular diet made it using cream cheese, parmesan cheese, and real mayonnaise.
The verdict? Mission accomplished!
I mean, I haven’t actually taken it to a party and tried to pass it off as “regular” but I think I could do it 🙂
This is best served hot with gluten free crackers or chips. If you are grain free try it on top of my homemade flat bread cut into small triangles! Or, I just ran across this Almond Flour Chip Recipe from glutenfreehappytummy.com that looks amazing! I’m planning on making them today to serve with the remaining dip. Enjoy!
