Secretly Healthy Spinach Dip

~Secretly Healthy Spinach Dip~

SO glad I found this! I could eat this stuff for breakfast, lunch and dinner! YUM!

Everyone has someone in their family who doesn't like to eat anything they think is “healthy.” That’s why I have to be super creative with my recipes, and secretive when I use cottage cheese.

Just a general trick, substituting cottage cheese for sour cream reduces that fat and adds a ton of protein to a meal. Just be sure to first blend the cottage cheese and no one will be able to tell the difference.

Spinach Dip Recipe

Ingredients needed:

1 10 oz container of frozen chopped spinach – defrost and squeeze out all the juice
1-2 5 oz cans of sliced water chestnuts – dice into small pieces
1 8 oz container of 1% cottage cheese – blend with a handheld blender or in a traditional blender until smooth and creamy
1 packet ranch dressing

After completing the above tasks, mix all ingredients well, eat, and enjoy!
No baking or cooking needed.

*Note: to make this even healthier make your own ranch mix...Here is my homemade recipe:
Homemade Ranch Mix:
5 tablespoons dried minced onions
7 teaspoons parsley flakes
4 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Mix together and store in an air tight container.
For dressing: Mix 2 tablespoons dry mix with 1 cup mayonnaise and 1 cup buttermilk or sour cream.
For dip: Mix 2 tablespoons dry mix with 2 cups sour cream.
Mix up a few hours before serving, so the flavors all blend.
