10 Low-Carb, Easy Spinach Dip Recipe Ideas for Movie or Game Night

Here are our top picks when it comes to spinach dip recipe ideas:

1. Tex-Mex Spinach Artichoke Dip Recipes

Recipe for Tex-Mex Spinach Artichoke Dip

Since everyone associates the word dip with something that’s either cheesy or spicy, we figured that the best way to start our list is with a recipe for spinach dip that has a lot of both.

This recipe for spinach and artichoke dip from Lemons for Lulu checks all the boxes. And sit will make you forget all about the fact that you’re on a diet.


  • Frozen and thawed spinach
  • Black pepper
  • Minced garlic
  • Fat-free​ sour cream
  • Low-fat cream cheese
  • Fat-free cream cheese
  • Grated Parmesan cheese
  • Roasted, chopped poblanos
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Canned, chopped artichokes
  • Roasted, chopped poblanos jalapenos

Despite containing 4 types of cheese and 2 types of peppers, this is still an artichoke spinach dip recipe; it’s just amped up with some extra flavor and a more appealing consistency.

Of course, don’t forget that this is a keto diet, and fats are welcome, so if you can’t find any fat-free or low-fat cream cheese, just go ahead and throw in regular cream cheese.

You can pair this recipe for spinach artichoke dip with the one for keto cheese chips.

2. Vegan Spinach & Artichoke Dip Recipe

recipe for vegan spinach artichoke dip

After presenting to you a spinach artichoke dip recipe that had 5 different dairy products in them, we figured that a good way to follow up would be with a recipe for the vegan version.

This recipe from Lemons for Lulu is not only vegan but also gluten-free and nut-free, so it’s one of the best spinach artichoke dip recipes for those with multiple dietary restrictions.


  • Frozen spinach
  • Canned artichoke hearts
  • Soaked raw cashews
  • Nutritional yeast
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • Almond milk
  • Salt

This spinach and artichoke dip recipe is slightly easier to prepare than the previous one since you’ll use a food processor to turn the cashews into a cream to make the base of this dip.

If you don’t have a food processor, you could also try using a blender, but we can’t guarantee that the results will be as smooth.

However, we’d like to suggest that you use unsweetened or even sugar-free almond milk since those usually tend to contain loads of sugar.

3. Easy Artichoke Spinach Dip Recipe in Crepe Rolls

recipe for crepe roll artichoke spinach dip

For our next entry, we figured that instead of showcasing you a typical spinach artichoke dip recipe that you can scoop out of a bowl, we’d show you a more creative way to enjoy it.

This recipe from DIYs will let you enjoy your spinach artichoke dip in the form of crepe rolls, and we have to say that they look delicious.

Sure enough, the recipe for the crepe rolls isn’t exactly keto, but we’ll tell you what you need to swap to make it work.


  • Chopped spinach
  • Chopped artichoke hearts
  • Salt
  • Water
  • Minced garlic
  • Cooking spray
  • Soaked cashew nuts
  • Freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Oat flour (to be replaced)
  • Garbanzo bean flour (to be replaced)

Both garbanzo bean flour and oat flour are high in carbs, and they’ll need to be replaced with something suitable if you want to make the crepe rolls work.

Fortunately enough, there are plenty of keto flour substitutes that you can use that will do just fine, such as almond flour, coconut flour, or maybe even a mix of both.

As for the spinach spread itself, it’s a vegan recipe similar to the one above, so no animals were harmed in making this dip.

4. Spanakopita Spinach Dip Recipes

Recipe for Spanakopita Spinach Dip

We love it when we come across traditional foods that have been given a keto makeover, and that’s exactly what this recipe from Lemons for Lulu is.

This recipe is for a spanakopita spinach dip, a Greek dish usually made with phyllo dough.

Of course, there’s no phyllo dough to be found here since it’s not keto-friendly, but the result is still just as delicious.


  • Fresh spinach
  • Salt
  • Mayo
  • Onions
  • Olive oil
  • Lemon zest
  • Dried thyme
  • Plain yogurt
  • Lemon juice
  • Minced garlic
  • Dried oregano
  • Chopped fresh dill
  • Crumbled feta cheese

One thing you’ll notice about traditional dishes is that they always require fresh ingredients, and this one is no different since fresh spinach is a lot tastier and more nutritious than frozen spinach.

As for the rest of the ingredients, the feta cheese certainly gives this dip a nice creamy texture, and the fact that all of the ingredients are then creamed in a food processor makes for a smooth and easy-to-eat dip.

Because this dip is extra creamy, we figured that it would pair well with some tortilla chips, but not the ones made from corn, of course; instead, we recommend that you try this recipe for keto tortilla chips made from almond flour.

5. Knorr Spinach Dip Recipe (Easy)

Recipe for Knorr Spinach Dip

Knorr is one of the biggest names for seasonings and bouillon cubes, so it should be no surprise that people have found ways to make them the main ingredient in all sorts of recipes, and this spinach dip is one of them.

This recipe from Culinary Hill is an easy way to make a spinach dip that’s full of flavor, and it only requires a few simple ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry.


  • Cooked spinach
  • Sour cream
  • Mayonnaise
  • Thinly sliced scallions
  • Chopped water chestnuts
  • Knorr Vegetable Recipe Mix
  • Fresh vegetables (for serving)

Technically speaking, you could make your seasoning blend instead of using Knorr, but the truth is that their products are usually quite good. And they save you the trouble of having to measure out all of the individual spices.

Besides, the mix even has spinach dip on the label, so it’s pretty much the perfect ingredient for this spinach dip Knorr recipe.

6. Original Ranch Spinach Dip Recipe

Recipe for Original Ranch Spinach Dip

Another big name in the food industry is Hidden Valley, and a great thing about their website is that they also post original recipes where their products are the main ingredient.

For example, they have this amazing recipe for original ranch spinach dip made with their world-famous Original Ranch Dressing. It only requires 4 other ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen.


Of all the ingredients listed above, the Hidden Valley Original Ranch Dips Mix is the only one you’re probably wondering whether it’s keto-friendly. We’re happy to report that it is, with 0 grams of sugar per serving.

Now, you could definitely make your ranch seasoning blend, but this particular product is keto-friendly and full of delicious flavor, so it’s a great way to save time.

Plus, the fact that it comes in a powder form means it will dissolve easily in the sour cream, making for a smooth and creamy dip.

7. Baja Recipe for Spinach Dip

Recipe for Baja Spinach Dip

If you liked how the Tex-Mex spinach dip brought together the best that Mexican and U.S. cuisine has to offer, then you’ll love this recipe from Jo Cooks.

It’s a recipe for spinach dip that has a distinctly Baja flavor, meaning that the only way you could taste something more Mexican than this is if you crossed the border.


  • Fresh spinach
  • Olive oil
  • Lime juice
  • Cream cheese
  • Salt and pepper
  • Diced tomatoes
  • Chopped onions
  • Hot sauce (e.g. Sriracha)
  • Chopped jalapeno peppers
  • Shredded Mexican Blend cheese

Like the Tex-Mex recipe listed at the start of our list, this dip is made to be spicy, only this time, the heat factor is multiplied by about a million.

So, if you can’t handle the heat, this might not be the recipe for you, but if you’re looking to sweat it out, go ahead and give it a try.

8. Cheesy and Creamy Spinach Dip Recipe

Recipe for Cheesy and Creamy Spinach Dip

Everyone knows how incredible it looks and feels when you dip a tortilla chip or a slice of garlic bread into a big bowl of cheesy dip, and it then stretches out like a string of mozzarella.

Well, this recipe from All Recipes will give you exactly that, only it’s made with spinach, so it’s good for you.


  • Frozen spinach
  • Milk
  • Olive oil
  • Minced garlic
  • Cream cheese
  • Salt and pepper
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Finely chopped onions
  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese

Milk is used instead of sour cream because it’s a little thinner, which means the final product will also be thinner and creamier.

Couple that with the amazing way mozzarella behaves when it melts, and you have the makings of one truly incredible dip.

As for how you can enjoy this spinach dip, the recipe author suggests serving it with low-carb chips or crackers, but we think it would also be great with some celery sticks or carrot sticks for dipping.

9. Cheesy Bacon Hot Spinach Dip Recipe

Recipe for Cheesy Bacon Hot Spinach Dip

This recipe from Delish is for a hot spinach dip loaded with cheesy goodness and crispy bacon bits.


  • Frozen chopped spinach
  • Shredded mozzarella
  • Grated Parmesan
  • Cream cheese
  • Garlic powder
  • Mayonnaise
  • Sour cream
  • Paprika
  • Bacon
  • Sliced and toasted baguette (to be replaced)

Before starting the keto diet, you may have heard that bacon should in no way be part of your daily intake, but we’re happy to report that this is no longer the case.

You see, now that you’re on teh keto diet, it’s the carbs that you’ll have to worry about, and as far as bacon and cheese are concerned, there are no carbs in sight.

However, this means that you won’t be able to use bread as a vehicle for your spinach dip, except if you decide to make keto bread instead.

10. Cold Spinach Dip Recipe with Cream Cheese

Recipe for Cold Spinach Dip with Cream Cheese

If you’re looking for a recipe to show you how to make cold spinach dip, this one from Aleka’s Get Together is a great place to start.

It may not have cheddar or Mexican blend cheese like some of our other entries, but it uses sour cream and cream cheese together with enough greens to make it our most refreshing entry yet.


  • Frozen chopped spinach
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Chopped scallions
  • Diced tomatoes
  • Salt and pepper
  • Cream cheese
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • Sour cream

You may have noticed that most of the previous recipes were all about being spicy and cheesy. Well, those were hot dips, and since this is a cold dip, it has a completely different flavor profile.

For starters, it has a lot of extra greens, and it’s meant to be refreshing rather than savory, so it’s great during the hotter seasons.

Secondly, there’s the fact that this dip is actually healthy, so if you’re looking to sneak some extra vegetables into your diet, then this is a great way to do it.

This section gives you simple answers to common questions about spinach dip.

How healthy is spinach dip?

Spinach is rich in vitamins and minerals, especially iron, and it’s also a great source of fiber. When you add cream cheese and other dairy products to the mix, you end up with a dip rich in calcium and protein.

How do I make spinach dip?

There are a lot of ways to make spinach dip, but the most basic recipes usually involve the same basic steps:

  1. First, you’ll need to cook or thaw the spinach, and then you’ll need to add it to a bowl along with the other ingredients.
  2. After that, all you need to do is mix it with the other ingredients, particularly ingredients that have a creamy consistency.
  3. Once everything is mixed together, you can either set the dip in the fridge or cook it in the oven, depending on the recipe and the ingredients.

Do you eat spinach dip hot or cold?

It all depends on what ingredients you’re using. For example, if you follow a recipe with lots of solid cheese, like cheddar, mozzarella, or parmesan, you’ll have to serve it hot so the cheese can stay molten.

On the other hand, if your recipe only calls for ingredients like cream cheese, sour cream, form mayonnaise, you can serve it cold since it will still have a creamy consistency.

What can I eat with spinach dip?

Spinach dip is usually eaten with chips, garlic bread, or even crackers. However, since spinach dip is mostly keto, it’s best to pair it with some keto-friendly crackers.

What crackers are good with spinach dip?

As long as the crackers are firm enough not to break when you dip them, you can use any type of cracker. But if you want to stay keto-friendly and try some crackers that share the same flavor profile as the spinach dip, check out recipes for keto cheese crackers.

Can you freeze spinach artichoke dip?

You can freeze spinach artichoke dip, but it’s not recommended since the texture of the dip will change after being frozen, especially since all the water will start to separate once you thaw it.

If you still want to freeze it, make sure to use an airtight container so that the dip doesn’t absorb any flavors or funny smells from the freezer. It’s best to eat the dip within two months of freezing it.
