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?
As an added bonus, if you have a Cricut Explore Air machine, I’ll show you after the recipe how to make football themed party food labels for your Game Day tablescape!
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.
Once the ingredients are assembled, mix it all together and refrigerate for a creamy dip that pairs great with Ritz Crackers and is easier on the waistline than a dip filled with cheese.
- 1/4 cup high quality mayo
- 1/4 cup green onions
- .75 ounce garlic and herb seasoning packet
- 17 ounce tub Greek yogurt
- 1 small package frozen spinach, thawed according to directions on package
Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl. Refrigerate for two hours before serving.
Game Day doesn’t have to be complicated. Prioritize time with family and friends while creating delicious food and drinks and showing off fabulous hosting skills! If you have a Cricut Explore Air machine, you can easily create football themed food labels.
- Cricut Explore Air 2
- Card stock in two colors (one light and preferably one in dark brown)
- Cricut Pen
Open up Cricut Design Space. Create a rectangle that is about 8″ long OR choose a food label from the Cricut Design Space images.
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.
Using your favorite handwritten font in the Cricut Design Space, place the name of the dish on the front of the card.
Make sure that the card, first football, and the text are all attached and that the text is selected to write with the pen.
Cut the pieces out with the Cricut Explore Air machine.
On the inside of the card, place a rim of glue around the outline of the football shape. Press the dark brown football on the glue to secure it inside.
These little food labels look great for a Game Day party spread!
Pair this Spinach and Garlic Yogurt Dip with RITZ Crackers and Coke Zero for an easy Game Day spread.

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.
Hi, It was a garlic and herb packet sort of like this one (I couldn’t find the exact one online) http://www.homelandstores.com/pd/Mission/Garlic-and-Herb-Seasoning-Dip-Mix/0-45-oz/073731008379/ . It was on the aisle with the Hidden Valley Ranch packets. It had garlic powder, onion powder, and then a blend of spices. I am sure that you could make your own with garlic powder, onion powder, and then whatever spices that you like.
Gotta say the dip looks wonderful. This will make a great appetizer during the Super Bowl.
Love the layered card stock trick on the food placecards.
