This classic appetizer gets a Paleo makeover, with a creamy, dairy-free cashew base, pan-wilted spinach, and hearty chunks of artichoke heart.

Rich and indulgent, spinach artichoke dip is a savory appetizer everybody loves. Unfortunately, the classic recipe combines heaps of dairy products and unhealthy ingredients. This recipe ditches the dairy in favor of an amazing Paleo alternative: cashew cream! The cream melds with Paleo mayonnaise for velvety smooth texture.

Ready in just 40 minutes, this dip is ideal for entertaining, with a golden-brown baked top and endless options for dipping. You’ll love how easy it is to throw together as well as the simple ingredient list, featuring whole foods like cashews, onions, garlic, spinach, and artichoke hearts.

How To Make The Creamiest Dips with Zero Dairy

Cashews are the perfect stand-in for inflammatory ingredients like cream cheese and shredded cheese. When soaked in water, they become plump and soften, perfect for blending into a creamy base for anything from cheesecake to dips! For the ideal neutral base, opt for raw, unsalted cashews.

In this recipe, soaked cashews are drained and combined with warm water to create a smooth and creamy texture. Paleo mayonnaise adds even more velvety smooth texture, perfect for mingling with hearty chunks of artichoke heart and wilted spinach.

Helpful Tips To Get Started:

  • Dip or spread, your way. Serve this dip with Paleo pita and raw sliced vegetables for dipping, or spread it on Paleo bread for sandwiches.
  • Stuff it up! For an indulgent meal, stuff this dip into chicken breasts, sweet potatoes, or mushroom caps.
  • Hot or cold, it doesn’t matter. This dip is equally delicious served chilled, making it perfect for entertaining any time of year.
  • Make a spread (pun intended). If you’re entertaining, set this dip out with other party favorites, like Crock pot cauliflower cheesy dip or Paleo nacho cheese.
