Lovin’ dips and spreads but hating the fat? Then try this guacamole-inspired dip with a creamy blend of spinach and buttermilk.  Not only is it lighter than classic dips, but it’s utterly delicious.


  • 2 cups packed spinach leaves, cleaned
  • 1/4 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon canned chopped green chiles, drained
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 medium avocado, peeled and sliced
  • 2 plum tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/4 cup cilantro


  1. Place the spinach in a pot of boiling water for no more than one minute. Remove, rinse under cold water, drain and squeeze dry.
  2. Use a food processor to pulse the spinach, buttermilk, half the onion, the chiles and the lime juice until the spinach is finely chopped. Do not over-blend the mixture.
  3. In a medium serving bowl, mash the avocado with a fork. Fold in the spinach mixture, the tomatoes, cilantro and remaining onion.
