Skinny Slowcooker Spinach Artichoke Dip

Spinach artichoke dip is one of my favorite guilty pleasure snacks - I can never resist ordering this yummy dip as an appetizer when out with friends (and let's face it, it has definitely also made an appearance as my dinner once or twice). Since this dip is pretty decadent, I am all about this skinny version which lightens the calories and fat but still packs a full flavor punch! Best of all, you can make this in your slowcooker so it's a snap to throw together for a party - I'm planning to eat every last drop of this warm dip during this current blizzard, then make another batch and bring it with me on Sunday for a Superbowl viewing.

Skinny Slowcooker Spinach Artichoke Dip

Ingredients
* 1 can artichoke hearts
* 9 oz. frozen spinach
* 3/4 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
* 8 oz. fat-free cream cheese
* 1/4 cup shredded low-fat mozzarella cheese
* 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
* 3 cloves minced garlic
* 1 tablespoon olive oil
* 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
* 1/4 teaspoon oregano
* 1/4 teaspoon dried basil



Directions
1) Cut the cream cheese into cubes and chop your artichokes.
2) Combine all ingredients in your slowcooker and stir.

3) Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours.

4) Serve with tortilla chips (I used whole wheat tortilla chips from Trader Joe's), vegetables, or pita chips.
How do you lighten up your favorite treats?
