Being a mom, I have made plenty of peanut butter dips over the years. In fact, one of them was so popular, that the entire elementary school requested it for a school fundraising event as part of their snacks for the kids.
But here’s a peanut butter dip I think is even better. Only 3 ingredients and less than 2 minutes prep, and it’s ready. Just grab a bowl, a spoon and your kids, grandkids, your neighbors kids, or whoever, to help provide muscle power in stirring together this wonderfully delicious (and of course nutritious) blend of creamy and ever-so-sweet fruit dip.
Cut up your favorite fruits and you’re set to enjoy this rich-tasting dip you can feel good about. Greek yogurt and peanut butter make it high in calcium and protein, along with plenty of antioxidants and fiber from the fruit, making it an ideal healthy snack for the whole family. It’s not only an extra fun way to eat fresh fruit but because of the extra protein, it’ll keep everyone’s stomach from rumbling until the next meal rolls around.
The nice thing about this dip is its versatility – make it like you want it. Shake a little cinnamon or nutmeg into the mix or swap the peanut butter for almond butter if you prefer. Regardless of how you put it together, it won’t last long – just make sure you have plenty of fruit on hand!
