Peanut Butter & Greek Yogurt Fruit Dip Recipe

Skinny Peanut Butter Fruit Dip



I posted this fruit dip recipe last year but it was sort of buried at the bottom of another recipe- and really this is so yummy it deserves a post.

If you are looking for quick and easy recipes that are healthy for breakfast or for snack ideas, this is a great one to try.

This fruit dip requires just 3 ingredients and is loaded with protein for an extra kick of energy.

I serve this as a dip for apples, or in a parfait style for breakfast or often times I just eat it straight from the bowl. The longer it is in the fridge the better it tastes, so you can make it in advance.

Here is the recipe:

  • 1 1/2 cups of plain greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

Puree until creamy in a food processor.  Serve chilled.

 

If your little ones are not fans of greek yogurt you can always add more brown sugar to make this sweeter.  I prefer to serve this with sweeter apples- like the Fuji pictured above.

And if you like, you can layer this with chopped apples or bananas and add a little granola on top for a delicious parfait.

I do like the brown sugar in mine but you can certainly add maple syrup or agave instead.

I’d love to hear what you think if you decide to try this recipe out!

And if you do like this one, check out the recipe for a peanut butter smoothie here.  This is also very healthy and to me it tastes like a decadent milkshake.

    I have been making this for a couple of years. I made a few changes. I use honey instead of brown sugar and I like to add a little vanilla. I have even used strawberry jam instead of sugar. My kids and I love it with apples. I agree, Charlene, it is great just by itself. It is hard not to lick the bowl!

    Can you possibly substitute regular plain yogurt for people who either don’t like greek yogurt or simply don’t have it in their fridge? Or any other possible substitutes?
