This artichoke dip has been a family favorite around the holidays for many years. I finally decided it needed a paleo makeover! The result was pleasant and the taste is so reminiscent of the original dish I’m guessing not many will know the difference! I even found some organic/non-GMO artichokes to use! #winning
The original artichoke dip recipe had cream cheese in it. On occasion we do enjoy that and only organic or raw. I wanted to minimize the diary intake if I could, so this makeover is perfect. If you do want to try the recipe the way it is originally made, simple sub the coconut cream out for 8oz of organic cream cheese and increase the mayo to a full cup. Easy peasy! The recipe does call for some Parmesan cheese, totally optional. If you want a little kick, try adding about ¼ cup diced green chilis, yum!
Besides the dip getting a makeover, I also decided to make some yummy crackers to go with it, so you can find a recipe for our rosemary sea salt crackers or you can use whatever crackers work for you! We use the Simple Mills crackers most often and keep them on hand year round. You can also serve with plenty of veggies if you’d like to keep those carbs in check!

- Combine the coconut cream, mayo, eggs and lemon juice in food processor and whirl until well combined.
- Toss in artichoke hearts, olives, green onions, cheese (if using), chipotle powder and salt & pepper…whirl till you have the desired texture you want. Pulse just a few times if you want a chunkier dip, if you like it all smooth…whirl away until you have a creamy texture. Don’t go too far though…or you will have a artichoke smoothie!
- Pour into a small casserole dish. Place all topping ingredients in a small bowl and toss together then sprinkle on top and bake for 30-35 minutes until it’s all bubbly and the center is set.
- Remove from oven and let it cool slightly before serving, it will firm up a bit as it cools
