Copycat Trader Joe's Reduced Guilt Spinach Dip | No Thanks to Cake

I found this recipe for a copycat of one of my favorite dips from Trader Joe's. It's fun to make this at home, when I don't have the time to drive all the way to Trader Joe's.


  • 2 cups reduced fat sour cream
  • 1 Tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 pkg. chopped frozen spinach, defrosted with excess water removed
  • cup red bell pepper, finely minced
  • ¼ cup carrot, finely minced
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 tsp. sea salt + more to taste, as needed
  • 2 Tbsp. dry chives
  • ½ tsp. onion powder
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. garlic salt
  • 1 tsp. dried dill weed
  • ¼ tsp. smoked paprika
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper


  • Combine spices, sour cream, mayo, and garlic in a small bowl.  Add honey and stir well to combine.
  • Prepare your veggies.  I used my veggie chopper to quickly dice the peppers, and my ninja to finely chop the carrots.  Wring out your spinach with a tea towel to remove all the excess water.
  • Add your veggies to the sour cream mixture, and stir well to combine.
  • Refrigerate for several hours before serving.  Serve with your favorite veggies, and enjoy!
