Maybe I’ve been paying more attention this year, but I’ve seen so many Game Day party posts in my social media feed this month. My husband and I plan a Big Game Day party for our youth group each year. I like experimenting with new recipes for events, but I especially enjoy it when I can make classic recipes a bit healthier. This Spinach and Garlic Yogurt Dip is perfect for Game Day, and, since it has spinach in it, that automatically makes it healthier, right?

The grand thing about this recipe is that you can use frozen spinach and whatever plain yogurt that you like. A Greek yogurt variety is recommended for a nice, thick dip consistency.

The flavor kicks in with spices! A spice packet keeps this dip low-prep and gets me out of the kitchen quicker.

Add a football image from Cricut Design Space images. Add it once on the bottom half of the card and attach it to the card. Add the football image again to the side, making sure that the second one is slightly larger than the first one. I do this by copying and pasting the first football before attaching it to the card and then enlarging the second football just a bit larger.

    Where did you get the spice packet? Never heard of being able to buy one.
    What’s in it? I have a lot of spices I could put together myself if I knew that.
