Looking for a Keto spinach dip? Try this Keto spinach artichoke dip today and see why it’s one of my favorite healthy dip recipes.
I’ll admit that I have a serious infatuation for cheese in almost any form. And, this keto dip recipe is definitely one of my favorite splurge recipes. Just skip the tortilla chips if you’re sticking to keto.
Keto Spinach Dip
While I don’t follow the ketogenic diet, my husband and I try to keep our carbohydrate levels as low as possible. He’s diabetic so carbs are not great for him. And, I try to stick to a mostly gluten-free diet.
The easiest way to make this recipe is with one of those little mini Crock-Pots. It helps keep the dip warm so that it stays all gooey and delicious. A 1 1/2 quart usually works really well.
If you don’t have one, you can melt it in the oven, but it won’t stay warm for a long time. Just pop it back in the oven to make it soft again. Or, scroll down to learn how to make a keto spinach dip in the Instant Pot.
What to use for dipping on keto?
Since I’m aiming for gluten-free, I can use corn tortilla chips. But, if you want something that is truly keto, you will want to try these cauliflower chips instead. Or, I have heard that pork rinds work really well too.
While tortillas are lower in carbs than many other snacks, they are not keto. You could also eat this dip with a spoon and just call it good enough. I’ve heard good things about these keto snack chips as well.
For a low salt dipping option, you can try dipping zucchini chips, celery sticks, or carrots.
Is spinach dip healthy?
It depends on your definition of healthy. It is low carb and gluten-free. But, it’s not low in sodium or low in fat. You will need to look at your own specific dietary needs to decide what is best for you.
What do I need to make keto spinach artichoke dip?
You will need:
- Cream cheese
- Sour cream
- Fresh spinach
- Canned artichoke hearts
- Parmesan cheese
- Asiago cheese
- Minced garlic
Can I use a regular size Crock-Pot?
Yes, if you don’t have a small-sized slow cooker, you can easily use whatever size you have. Just remove it from the crock when it’s done and place it in a bowl.
You may need to reheat it in the microwave for a few minutes if it cools down.
Can I use low-fat dairy?
If you want this to be ketogenic, you really need full-fat dairy. But, if you aren’t concerned about it being a keto spinach dip, you can use low-fat cheese dairy products to keep the fat content down.
Just experiment with the recipe so that it fits into your lifestyle.
Keto spinach dip in the Instant Pot
If you don’t have a Crock-Pot, you can make this in your Instant Pot instead. Just add the ingredients, stir to combine, and cook on high for 4 minutes.
How to store leftovers
I rarely have leftovers because it is just that good. But, if you do have leftovers, you can scoop the dip into an airtight container with a lid and keep it in the refrigerator.
It will still be good for 3 to 5 days. Just reheat it in the microwave slowly to warm it up again.
