Ingredients
Spinach Dip
  • 1.5 cups Thrive Life Chopped Spinach
  • 1 - 2 tbsp water
  • 9 oz cream cheese softened
  • 3/4 cup chopped artichokes can used canned/pickled
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp Thrive Life Chopped Onions crumbled in hand
  • 1 tsp Thrive Life Italian Seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder or more if you like more zing
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 cup fresh grated parmesan or refreshed Thrive Life parmesan
  • 1 cup Mozzarella cheese
Garlic Butter Topping
  • 2-3 tbsp butter melted
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp Thrive Life Italian Seasoning
Instructions
  1. Prep your dough. When about to make the dip, preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. Make sure your cream cheese is soft (leave it out of the fridge for about 30 min). Cut it into a bowl and add your freeze dried spinach. You can crumble the spinach a bit to make the pieces smaller. Add water to slightly moisten the mixture. Beat together.

  3. Cut up artichoke into small pieces, dry off with a towel. Stir this and the minced garlic into your mix. I used three heads of pickled artichoke. 

  4. Take your Thrive Life freeze dried chopped onions and crumble them slightly in your hand before adding them to the mix.

  5. Add all your seasonings and beat to combine.

  6. Add your Parmesan and mozzarella and beat to combine. 

  7. Follow the directions provided to make the tree shape and spread your dip. 

  8. Bake on the middle rack for 25 – 30 minutes. The time will vary depending on the type of dough you made. With our homemade dough, it was closer to 30. But the goal is to have a nicely browned but not burnt crust.

  9. Make the garlic butter topping. Add more seasoning as needed as per your preference. Spread on once you’ve take your Christmas tree out of the oven.
