Healthy Spinach Dip Recipe

I needed something healthy and low in fat to take to a get-together, so I experimented and came up with this dip. It's packed full of flavor and color. Served with assorted veggies, bread or crackers, it's always a hit. People ask for the recipe every time. —Noelle Myers, Grand Forks, North Dakota

"I'll wait to try this until a confirmation about the amount of cream cheese is addressed. I agree with Joanna75, it's usually 8 ounces for a dip recipe."

"Do you mean one 8 oz fat free cream cheese. One ounce of cream cheese is basically obsolete?"

"This sounds good...I will definitely try it. But WHY do people think that FAT FREE is healthy????? It's all CHEMICALS! You're body does not know how to digest them! So therefore the chemicals get stored as fat. I will try this with REAL ingredients, not fat free garbage."

"This sounds very yummy. I didn't have a chance to make it yet, but I will very soon. I'm surprised how little yogurt and cream cheese you use."
