Are you looking for something that can satisfy your sweet tooth and be healthy? Try this version of peanut butter fruit dip. It is made with only five ingredients- peanut butter, non-fat greek yogurt, honey, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. It tastes delicious on apples or bananas, and I can literally spoon it out of the jar. Plus, I don’t feel horrible eating it as it is quite healthy to boot! I think this is a great dip for parties, picky kids who like peanut butter but won’t eat fruit, or for a post work-out snack with good protein in it. You can pretty easily make this using all organic ingredients, too.
Very easy to make. It only took 5 minutes. Here are the simple instructions. I used my Kitchen aid mixer, but I am sure hand mixing would produce the same results. Makes about 2.5 cups.
12 oz non-fat greek yogurt
1/2 jar peanut butter (about 8 oz)
2-3 tbsp honey (depending on taste)
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
I started by adding the greek yogurt to the mixing bowl. I then added the peanut butter, mixing slowly until well blended. Then I slowly added the honey, cinnamon, and vanilla extract to my desired taste. I like things sweet, so back off and taste as you go until you get the desired combination you like. Keep refrigerated.
*I used chunky peanut butter and love how it turned out. For a smoother texture, use creamy peanut butter.
