These are perfect for game day! Spinach Artichoke Appetizer Pizza Puffs - Dairy Free, Healthy, Low Calorie, Meatless #meatlessmondaynight #ad

Is football big in your family? When I was little it sure was. My grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins would have a weekly football pool. Everyone had their favorite team and would watch the game with baited breath. There would be yells of joy when someone’s team was winning and cries of agony when their team was losing. It is what we did on a Sunday afternoon or Monday night. Of course, game day meant game day food, chips and dips, little appetizer bites and if I was really lucky pizza. Pizza was always my favorite, New Jersey pizza that is. There was a family that made pizza out of their basement, and it was the best pizza I have ever had. Sadly I haven’t had it in over 30 years.

So when Silk wanted some meatless game day recipes, I immediately thought of pizza and reminisced about those fun family times. We don’t actually watch football much anymore, but that doesn’t mean we don’t love game day food. So I decided to make a remix of my favorite pizza into Spinach Artichoke Appetizer Pizza Puffs. In addition I took these Spinach Artichoke Appetizer Pizza Puffs to Ladies Night. They are so simple to make and can actually be made a couple of hours ahead of time. I kept them in the refrigerator and warmed them up just before serving. It was an easy appetizer that I could feel good about serving my guests. The next day my daughter happily ate some for an after school snack. Shocking! They have spinach in them, and she still enjoyed them.

I’ve used soy and coconut milk before, but not cashew milk. So I decided to give it a try in this recipe. I really enjoyed the flavor and used it in a potato carrot soup a few days later. My family had no idea I had not used cow’s milk. Given that Silk Cashew Milk is 25 calories per cup, I am going to use it a lot more. I plan on making a breakfast casserole with it tonight. Yes, it is breakfast for dinner tonight in the Food Done Light house. You can use it as a replacement in any recipe that calls for milk. Be sure to visit Silk SideLine Meat for more recipes. They have a sideline meat challenge, too.

    What a cute idea! I love almond milk and have been meaning to try cashew milk, so I will definitely give that a try. Also, it's funny but I did not grow up in a house with any sports. Like, none. Now, ohhhh yes. Regardless, gameday bites like yours are always so fun and tasty.
  2. Yum...one of my favorite dips in a cute little bite...and vegan? Love it. My son would love it. I have Daiya cheese and we really like it. Would be perfect to use in this recipe.
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      Hi Renee, These are vegan because of the egg. They are dairy free and meat free though. Daiya was the type of cheese I used. It worked very well in this recipe.
  3. I love the video at the beginning! So fun! I really want to try these pizza puffs out at my next get together.
  4. I definitely need to get my hands on some cashew milk- I haven't tried it yet. I LOVE almond & coconut milk, so I know that I would love it. :) Love these little pizza puffs- perfectly poppable! They would be fabulous for holiday parties too.
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      Hi Carrie, I really liked cashew milk best of all the non-dairy milks I've tried. It worked so well in the recipe.
  5. I love the Silk Cashew milk - use it all the time - and love how low calorie it is!
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      This was the first time I had cashew milk and really loved it. I'll be keeping it in my refrigerator.
  6. These look like the perfect game day food. I love how easy they are, and how flavorful they look. Mmmm
  7. I love anything with spinach and artichoke together! These look like they'd be perfect for entertaining and for holiday parties!
  8. I like that these can be made in advance! The cashew milk sounds rich and tasty. Looking forward to giving this a try!
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      Hi Sandra, I try to have as many recipes available that I can make ahead for the holidays. It definitely helps relieve some stress.
  9. These look like such perfect bites of goodness! Great recipe!
  10. Hello Christie--Do you forsee any problems if we use almond milk or dairy milk instead of the coconut milk ??? Thanks
  11. These sound great! Love spinach
  12. What is vegan cheese?
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      It is a non-dairy cheese that most grocery stores should stock. If you do not need dairy-free, use a low fat mozzarella.
  13. You talk about using Cashew milk in the blog, but the actual recipe calls for coconut milk. Do I assume that Cashew milk is correct?
