Creepy Spinach and Artichoke Finger Dip

Creepy Spinach and Artichoke Finger Dip
I made this delicious dip for a Halloween party.  This is the Vitamix's Spinach and Artichoke Dip and came from here. As I was trying to think of ways to make it creepier I added some sliced carrots with almond slivers on top for finger nails.  This dip is yummy!  I plan on making this again for Christmas but without the fingers.

If you don't have a Vitamix, just use your blender or food processor.  Blend the first step tell pretty smooth and then pulse the second step.

Spinach and Artichoke Dip

  • 1/2 cup (120 g) light mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup (120 g) light sour cream
  • 1 slice lemon, peeled, seeded
  • 1 (10-ounce) package of frozen spinach, thawed, drained
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled
  • 1/4 cup (25 g) grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup (85 g) artichokes, canned and drained or frozen and thawed
  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F (180˚C).
  2. Place all ingredients, except artichoke hearts, into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure lid.
  3. Select Variable 1.
  4. Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to Variable 4.
  5. Blend for 15 seconds. Remove the lid plug.
  6. Add artichokes through the lid plug opening.

  8. Pour into an oven-safe dish and bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes or until bubbly. Serve with crackers, pita bread, veggies, or pumpernickel bread.
