Healthy Peanut Butter and Yogurt Dip!

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.

Ingredients:
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.

A little fall hiking

A few weeks ago we took a little fall hiking trip in Breckenridge. It was COLD. 
But we decided to strap our little gal into her new Kelty and do some trekking around. 
Lilly was a trooper. There was some tough parts, I got a little nervous. Thankfully she has a pretty tough Dad who wants her to be a little adventurer. 
We saw a whole bunch of sheep- but I labeled them goats haha! I was afraid they might come and try to attack us. 
Lillian bundled up in her Kelty. She was pretty unsure about the whole thing but eventually fell asleep. I don’t get this child sometimes. 
Family photo… some snow in the background. That night we got pounded with snow so good thing we got a hike in! 

Until next time,
