The Best Cheesy Spinach Dip


June is Dairy Month and we’re celebrating by eating cheese, glorious cheese, and reminiscing on the fun time we had at Yon-Ed dairy farm two years ago. It was a time that we’ll never forget. Time sure does fly. Some memorable moments include Jayden helping Mrs. Lindborg feed the heifer cows, siting in a tractor, and sharing his shoe with one of the heifers. Click here to relive those moments with us.


Cheese is the number two source of bone-building calcium in the diet, as well as an excellent source of high quality protein, a nutrient necessary for maintaining healthy muscles and linked to helping weight management. It also can improve total diet quality because a person may be more likely to eat fruits, vegetables and whole grains when these foods are paired with cheese. Learn more on Midwest Dairy’s cheese nutrition page. In celebration of June Dairy Month, I came up with a delicious cheesy spinach dip that I am currently addicted to. I won’t say it’s the best EVER, but it’s pretty darn close. Bring this to brunch and you’ll definitely earn cool points :-)!
