artichoke and lemon dip recipe recipe

Hosting that party this weekend? 

Search no more as this artichoke and lemon dip recipe is all you need – And… maybe a bunch of veggie sticks or tortilla chips!

Anyhow, this dip will certainly be an easy crowd-pleaser. We replaced the parmesan cheese with Greek yogurt for that added creaminess and not to mention, gut benefit.

Don’t get us wrong, though. Artichokes alone are full of inulin, a unique form of fiber that strengthens our gut. But, with the addition of a healthy Greek yogurt, this dip recipe easily becomes a gastrointestinal powerhouse! Oh, did we mention that it can boost our immune system too?

Well, that’s just some of the nutritional benefits of this recipe. 

But, even if you’re not hosting that party this weekend, it’s still useful in many ways. Pair up with some veggie sticks and you’ve got some healthy alternative to that popcorn or chips!

Still, whether you’re hosting a party, getting on that couch, packing some lunch box for the kids, or just grabbing a quick snack, this artichoke and lemon dip recipe is something that you don’t want to miss making – and eating.
