Looking for a healthy indulgence to brighten your winter day? Your search is over! This versatile dessert features heart-healthy olive oil and protein-rich Greek yogurt, which replace the butter.

Spinach and Kale Greek Yogurt Dip

This easy dip packs a lot of vegetables as well as flavor. I’ve noticed that some folks who are not fond of nutrient dense greens like spinach and kale will eat this dip with gusto. It is a great dip to prepare in advance of a party because the flavors blend nicely while it chills. I also like to keep some in my refrigerator to eat on crackers as a healthy snack alternative. Enjoy!
