What’s A Spinach Avocado Dip?
A Spinach Avocado Dip is similar to guacamole but is loaded with spinach.
It’s a healthy dip that can be used with tortilla chips, celery sticks, or for dipping Mozzarella Sticks or Buffalo Cauliflower.

How To Make Spinach Avocado Dip
This spinach dip is very easy to make, it only takes a few healthy ingredients.
- Spinach – I prefer to use fresh baby spinach for this recipe. You can use regular spinach as well, but it’ll be stronger in taste.
- Avocado – Pick perfectly ripe avocados. If they’re too young, the dip will be a tad bitter. If too ripe, it will have a bit of a foul taste. To know if your avocado is ready, it should be soft to the touch but not mushy, and removing the stem should reveal a bright green flesh.
- Cilantro – also known as coriander, cilantro is a fresh herb that 50% of the population cannot like because their taste buds detect a soap-like taste. If that’s your case, use chopped parsley instead.
- Yogurt – I prefer to use coconut yogurt as it keeps the dip dairy-free and vegan, but it also brings a nice tangy taste.
- Lime Juice – or lemon juice, pick your favorite. Follow my tips on how to squeeze a lime without a juicer.
- Avocado Oil – or any vegetable oil you like.
Making The Dip
I love party food during summer. It’s so much easier to eat fresh finger food when it’s hot outside.
Making this avocado dip is ridiculously easy, it’s done in about 5 minutes.
First, trim, wash, and rinse the spinach. I also recommend blanching it in boiling water for a few minutes. It makes it more digestible and easier to blend.
Drain the spinach and squeeze the leaves as hard as possible to extract the excess water.
Combine all the ingredients in the jug of a high-speed blender and blend them for about 2 minutes.
Transfer the Spinach Avocado Dip to a serving bowl and drizzle some avocado oil on the top to prevent it from darkening.
You can store this spinach avocado dip for up to 6 or 7 days in the fridge.
It stores better when there’s a thin layer of oil on the top as it prevents the avocado from oxidizing and darkening.
I also recommend keeping some plastic wrapping on top of the bowl and as close as possible to the dip to limit the air in contact with the dip.
If some oxidation occurs, give the dip a good stir or remove the thin top layer of darker avocado.

I could not find the serving size. Is it 1 tablespoon, teaspoon,….??

I m type 1, diabetic so please give accordingly the recipe if possible.
Usually all my recipes are tpe 1 friendly since they are low carb and sugar free. Enjoy the recipes on the blog, XOXO Carine
Hi! Does this freeze ok?
I would not freeze avocado dip since the color will get darker and the avocado will change and get bitter. Enjoy the recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine
Cannot wait to make this! Just got a new food processor and this recipe looks perfect. Wondering if coconut milk would be an okay substitute for the coconut yogurt or if it really needs something a bit thicker than that?
Well coconut milk is more liquid than coconut yoghurt so I wouldn’t recommend this option or the dip will be very runny. If you eat dairy, try a low carb greek yoghurt ! Enjoy the recipes on the blog, XOXO Carine.
Looks delicious! I’m wondering if instead of coconut yogurt I could just use coconut cream?
Sure! That would be perfect too. Enjoy the dip recipe. XOXO Carine.
To make things simple, the seeds are referred to as Coriander and the leaves referred to as Cilantro
Thanks for the lovely input ! I am French and I am always confused between both terminology. Now it is clear ! Enjoy the blog recipes. XOXO Carine.
Was delicious until I added the coconut yogurt, which I was not careful about when I purchased it and it was full of sugar, which totally changed the taste of the dip and not for the better. I am now busy adding more of the other ingredients to counteract it. Wish me luck!
Hi Stacey, I am sorry you didn’t buy the right coconut yogurt. As I mentioned in this recipe I am using dairy free coconut yogurt made of 100% coconut cream. It is a plain, unsweetened vegan yogurt. I hope you managed to get this dip right at the end and you will try it again with the right yogurt next time. Merry Christmas and happy holidays. XOXO Carine.
This is soooo good. We love the addition of the beans on the dip and multiple colors of tomatoes makes it all so inviting! My new favorite dip!
I’m trying to figure out the calories to add to My Fitness Pal – Do you know the calorie content or how many servings this recipe makes aprox?
Hello! This spinach dip has 1.4 g net carb per serve. I hope you will give it a try it is a delicious dip ! Thanks for reading my blog and trying my recipes Megsy ! xoxo Carine.
@ the end of your instructions you tell us to “Sprinkle the salsa on top of the tortilla and add extra chopped coriander”. Should we assume you mean ‘chopped cilantro’? the two are quite different in taste. This recipe sounds amazing…cannot wait to try it.
Hi Kat, No I really meant fresh coriander and as you can see on the first photography where I shared the ingredients picture, I used fresh coriander with avocado. This combo is absolutely amazing and I hope you try the recipe! You’ll love it :D. Enjoy! Carine.
Fresh coriander and cilantro are the same plant – both referring to the leaves of the plant versus the seeds which are called coriander seeds.
Thanks for clarifying Megan. I am French and we use the same word for both – coriandre. I am always a bit confused of the terminology in English so it is great to have a reminder 🙂 Enjoy the blog recipes! Carine.
