Trader Joe’s Copycat Spinach & Kale Greek Yogurt Dip

Yes! This is a Vegan copycat version of the famously delicious Trader Joe’s Spinach & Kale dip. I decided to make it when I discovered that the store one contains mayonnaise. It is an incredibly satisfying combination of ingredients. Once you taste it, you will want to serve it at all your gatherings. You might prefer to reserve it for a very pleasurable late night snack!
