In constant attempts to make good food choices in my life, this little peanut yogurt dip has become my go to daytime snack. It is packed with protein and when accompanied by apple slices, a great boost of nutrition in such a simple snack. Even though it is made with plain nonfat Greek yogurt, my non yogurt eating husband loves it as well.
The ingredients couldn't be any easier. Peanut butter (I make my own homemade version in my Vitamix), non-fat plain Greek yogurt, and honey (or other sweetener of your choice).
For a single serving I mix half a cup of yogurt, 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, and a teaspoon of honey. Then you just mix it up.
I also like to make a bigger batch that I keep in the fridge and can dig into whenever I want. And I don't usually measure. Though I love peanut butter, I try to make sure that the peanut butter to yogurt ration is one half or one third just for calorie intake sake. Then I just add a squirt of honey (or a scoop of Splenda). You can play around with the ratios to decide what fits your personal taste preference.
I love the Fage brand of yogurt but they do not always carry it at my grocery store. But when they do I like to use the empty container to make the dip. The small carton is the perfect size for making a batch for the next week, plus I like seeing through the clear lid. I am sure I could just make it in any container, but having it in the yogurt container catches my eye and reminds me to choose a yummy healthy snack instead of something else. Having it pre-made makes for a quick and easy snack when rushed or super hungry.
This peanut butter and yogurt combo is great with apples. I also occasionally dip some Snackimals graham crackers in it for a sweet treat or dessert.
