Spinach Artichoke Dip Recipe

Who doesn’t love spinach artichoke dip? It’s an all time favorite! And the good news is that you don’t even need cheese to make a delicious spinach artichoke dip. This Spinach Artichoke Dip Recipe is vegan, paleo, and a dip everyone can enjoy! It’s bursting with flavor, and in my opinion, pretty addictive. Pair it with chips or gluten free bruschetta, and you have the perfect appetizer or snack!

Spinach Artichoke Dip

Let’s get into the details.

Spinach Artichoke Dip

When you think of spinach artichoke dip, it’s likely you imagine a thick, ooey gooey, cheesy dip. After all, isn’t that what makes it so delicious? Thankfully, dairy-free or vegan does NOT mean cheese free. The cheesy effect found in this conventional recipe can easily be imitated with a few ingredient swaps.

So what are the secret ingredients that help this dish maintain its cheesy texture and flavor? Let me show you!

Main Ingredients

Artichoke Hearts

Obviously at the heart of this dip are artichokes! I like to get mine precut and frozen, and then steam when I’m ready to use them.


Same with the spinach. Both fresh and frozen spinach work great in this recipe!

Coconut Cream

Instead of the cream cheese normally relied on in conventional recipes to achieve a thick, creamy texture, this recipe uses coconut cream! Coconut cream acts as the perfect thick, creamy base for sauces, soups, dips, and so much more!

This is my favorite brand.


Mayonnaise is another component of what gives this recipe it’s thick, creamy texture. Of course, to make this recipe clean, it’s important to use a clean ingredient mayonnaise! If you’re vegan, vegan mayo options are also available at most health food stores.

I love this brand!

Nutritional Yeast

If you’re dairy free or vegan, you have to have nutritional yeast in your life! Nutritional yeast tastes just like cheese, and dissolves easily in recipes.

Bragg’s offers a great, high-quality product!
