Salted Caramel Greek Yogurt Apple Dip

It is January and I am trying to eat more apples and the sort to compensate for all the holiday sweets I indulged in.  But there are still a few yummy treats sitting around my house. 

Now I try to have a healthy balance.  Instead of eating chocolate I decided to have some apples and caramel sauce.  As I sat there dipping into the decadent homemade salted caramel dip that we received as a gift, I was reminded of my peanut butter yogurt apple dip.  And my January self told me that I should add some protein to that caramel.  And this heavenly salted caramel Greek yogurt dip was born.

It is the best of both worlds.  A clean healthy snack with just enough sweetness to curb a sweet tooth.  In order to not over eat or be hungry a half an hour later I am trying to find the balance of filling meals that still taste great.  And this one is most definitely a winner.

For the dip it is just caramel sauce and nonfat Greek yogurt.  I did about a ration of 2:1 yogurt to caramel.  But you can adjust it based on your preference.  It is not the leanest of dips but it definitely is a smarter choice.  Because honestly I was going to eat all the caramel dip with or without the yogurt.  The yogurt made it a filling afternoon snack I did not have to feel bad about.  

So I am kind of thinking that I can mix all sorts of things with Greek yogurt.  The options are endless.  I think I need a white chocolate version...

Salted Caramel Greek Yogurt Apple Dip

Mix caramel and yogurt together.  Cut apples and dip!  Enjoy!
