No-Bake Herbed Spinach-Artichoke Dip

The winter months are full of rich foods and parties. This time of year is for celebrating with friends and family, but does it have to lead to yearly weight gain? Support the health of the ones you love with a lighter, healthier holiday classic dip that retains all of its flavor. Artichokes are packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants; they are also a source of probiotics, which support gut health by feeding the good bacteria that live there. This simple high-fiber dip can be made in minutes with one simple step: blend until smooth! Serve this savory dip alongside fresh veggie sticks or whole wheat crostini for added nutrition your guests will love.

YIELDS 2 CUPS

2 14-ounce cans of artichoke hearts, drained (unmarinated, canned in water)
½ cup mayonnaise (vegan or regular)|
½ fresh lime, juiced with seeds removed
1 cup fresh spinach, roughly chopped
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried basil
½ teaspoon chili powder
2 Tablespoons olive oil
½ teaspoon garlic salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Ingredients
Place all ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and process until relatively smooth, leaving some texture if desired. An immersion blender will also blend appropriately if it is more convenient. Transfer dip to a small bowl and refrigerate for 1 hour or until set. Serve with fresh veggies or crostini.
