There’s an unwritten rule that everyone (and I really mean everyone) loves healthy spinach artichoke dip, right? Because if there’s anything better than this vegan paleo spinach and artichoke dip recipe, I’ve yet to experience it. In my opinion, a creamy, satisfying dip that happens to be packed with vegetables is a win-win. And bonus, dairy-free spinach artichoke dip is something everyone can enjoy as it’s paleo, vegan, and dairy-free. Oh, and healthy of course. But I know you wouldn’t expect anything but that from me, right?
I love that this dip tastes amazing, but I also love that everyone can enjoy it. No matter if you’re paleo, vegan, dairy-free, a health nut, or you just like good food – this dip will please them all. Put it out with a variety of paleo chips and crackers, and plenty of colorful vegetables – but don’t wait too long to dive in, this paleo dip won’t last long!
How To Make Paleo Vegan Spinach Artichoke Dip
This paleo artichoke dip is incredibly easy to make. Let me show you how to make it.
First, we saute up some garlic, onions and spinach. This is a great base of flavor for the dip.
Next, we mix together artichokes, green onions, coconut milk yogurt, avocado oil mayonnaise, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, sea salt, and paprika, until combined.
Then it’s time to bake or broil!
TIP: I like to use a cast iron skillet for this dip as it can all be made in the same pan. You don’t have to use cast iron, but just make sure to use an oven-safe pan.
The hardest part of this spinach artichoke dip recipe? Deciding what to serve it with! I share a whole list of dipper ideas below, but you’ll definitely want to include some fresh vegetables and a paleo cracker or two.
How To Make Spinach Artichoke Dip Vegan
It’s easier than you might think to make spinach artichoke dip vegan. While this classic dip is typically loaded with sour cream and various cheeses, this vegan hot artichoke spinach dip gets creamy from the combination of other ingredients. Here are the easy swaps we made:
- Butter – Sometimes the onions and spinach are sautéed with butter, but we’re using coconut oil. You could also use avocado oil if you want an option with a more neutral flavor.
- Sour cream – We are using paleo coconut milk yogurt in place of the sour cream. It helps to give it a creamy feel, but also add a little tang to the dip. Make sure your yogurt is plain and paleo-friendly.
- Cheese – The avocado mayonnaise also helps replace some of the cheese – it’s so creamy but we’re also using nutritional yeast. This is a classic vegan swap as it imparts cheesy flavor, without any of the diary!
How Healthy Is Spinach Artichoke Dip?
Healthy is not always a term I would use to describe spinach artichoke dip, but this version is definitely healthy. It’s made up of veggies, avocado mayo, and nutritional yeast which is full of vitamins and minerals.
Can You Make Vegan Spinach Artichoke Dip Ahead?
Yes! You can make this paleo spinach dip ahead of time. The best way to do this is to mix up the dip as directed in steps 1 and 2 of the recipe card, and then cover with plastic wrap or tin foil and refrigerate until you’re ready to serve it.
At that point, you can broil or bake until the dip is hot and bubbly.
Can you Freeze Paleo Spinach Artichoke Dip?
I would not recommend freezing this paleo spinach artichoke dip. Even though this healthy spinach artichoke dip is vegan, the coconut milk yogurt still acts like dairy yogurt and the texture can get a little grainy if you freeze it.
I wouldn’t worry about not being able to finish it (it’s delicious, remember?!), but you could always cut the recipe in half if you are.
What To Serve With Spinach Artichoke Dip
I love to serve vegan baked spinach artichoke dip with a variety of dippers. (Remember, the hardest part of this dip is deciding what you’ll dip into it!)
Obviously, veggies are important – they add beautiful color to the spread, and major crunch factor. I recommend including at least 3-5 different veggies with this dip, in a variety of colors and textures.
I’ve shared some of my favorites vegetables below. Then there are chips and crackers! Also a must for any paleo dips.
- Carrot sticks
- Cucumber slices
- Celery sticks
- Cauliflower and/or broccoli florets
- Endive leaves
- Baked Plantain Chips
- Low Carb Paleo Tortilla Chips
- Oven Baked Zucchini Chips

Due to a legume allergy, I googled paleo recipes because I was told the paleo diet was legume free.(wrong info?) All plain coconut yogurts on the market on my area at Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s…has either locust bean gum, guar gum, or pea protein added as a stabilizer, which are all legumes. What brand have you found without legumes?
Hi I would love to make this but any suggestions on a vegan mayo? Egg yolks make me super ill.
Hi Sheryl, Yes, feel free to use vegan mayo in this!
This sounds like a great afternoon snack! I halved the recipe, and am wondering if you could help me. How do I measure 0.38 of the mayo? Could you round it up or down so it makes sense to me? Thank you so much for all the yummy recipes you create!
Hi Jen, I’m assuming you’re referring to the coconut milk yogurt that comes out to 0.38 cup if you halve the recipe. You can just round that down to 1/3 cup.
