Kale and Collard Cream Cheese Dip Recipe

Since being diagnosed with PCOS, I've been scouring pinterest, looking for new recipes to try. Leo created  this amazing dip, which is both healthy and delicious. And it has now been added to pinterest!

Here are the ingredients:

-A handful of kale and/or collard greens, stems removed
-8 ounces cream cheese
-A tablespoon of minced garlic
-A tablespoon of butter
-2-3 tablespoons of milk

Boil the kale and/or collard greens for about 30 seconds in boiling water.

Remove the greens from the pan and drain in a sieve.

Melt about a tablespoon of butter in a pan.

-Add the minced garlic to the butter and fry for about 1 minute.

 Add the greens to the pan and sautee for another minute or two.

Blend all of the ingredients, including the cream cheese and milk in a blender.

Grab your favorite veggies/chips, fruit or crackers and dip. Buen provecho!

P.S. Leo says kale is better tasting, but collard can work in a jiffy. I've tried them both ways, and they are both delicious, but kale is my favorite green for this dip by far.

Can I use Spinach instead of kale?

I haven't made it with spinach, but I bet it would be delicious!
