Pumpkin, Artichoke and Spinach Dip

Pumpkins contain vitamin A which aid with vision. Spinach has powerful antioxidants that combat high blood pressure.  And the fiber found in artichokes, promotes intestinal health. This is a powerful dip that may counteract all the downfalls of candy eaten this Halloween.

Makes about 2 cups.
