Goat cheese and artichoke dip - Dr. Axe

If you’re someone who enjoys snacking or dips, you’ve likely had your share of cheese and artichoke dips, and sure, they’ve probably been tasty. You might have even prepared a few, but if you’re ready to take your dips to the next level, it’s time to make this artichoke dip recipe.

Trust me — this one’s tastier (and much healthier) than any spinach and artichoke dip or cheesy dip I’ve ever had.

Goat Cheese Appetizers

Goat cheese is one of my favorite cheeses. It’s tangy and creamy, perfect for adding to your favorite dishes.

It’s also lower in the milk proteins some people are sensitive to, so even if you struggle with digesting traditional cow’s milk cheeses, you might find you can tolerate goat’s milk better.

Different countries call goat’s cheese by different names. One of the most common is the French chèvre, which is what we’ll use here.

If you’re new to goat cheese, get ready to fall in love with this cow’s milk alternative. Some of my favorite appetizers and salads incorporate goat cheese.

For a light pre-meal salad, this berry goat cheese salad is delicious. Fruit and goat cheese make a really great combination, and if you like the berry salad, you’ll love this balsamic peaches and goat cheese salad recipe.

For a more traditional, cheesy appetizer, this eggplant-wrapped goat cheese is a winner.

The cheeses in this artichoke dip provide quite a few health benefits. For starters, it’s packed with protein.

Good-for-you dairy like goat cheese is a terrific meat-free source of protein that is often overlooked in favor of meatier choices.

I also love that artichokes are an integral part of this dip. Artichokes made the cut as one of my top high-antioxidant foods for good reason.

They’re rich in fiber, which helps you feel full longer and can assist in weight loss efforts. They also keep your skin looking bright and firm, and they can reduce inflammation and lower cholesterol levels, helping improve your heart’s health.

Combine these two healthy foods with doses of fresh herbs and refreshing lemon, and you’ve got a recipe for artichoke dip that’s going to be a new dip staple.

    I love all the recipes in the nutritional facts I just don’t see a serving size what is the size of the circuit on all of these recipes how much is in the nutritional facts is it a cup is it a half a cup?

  4. Roz on

    This sounds yummy and easy! The article says 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, but the recipe shows 2 tsp. I can certainly experiment, but wonder which is recommended?

    • Dr. Josh Axe on

      Shani, I am a big fan of any organic, grass-fed goat cheese. There are so many to choose from that it’s hard to choose a favorite. If you have any local goat farms, I would start there as I love supporting the local community.

    I just made this and it is to die for! I think I might put it on top of my filet mignons tonight that I am going to grill! And just eat it right out of the bowl!
