Peanut Butter Dip.


This post might as well be titled “Pinterest Strikes Again”.  I saw this & it was just too good to resist.  It makes a great high-protein, low-cal spread for apples, toast, biscuits, crackers… but mainly apples, because they’re lower-calorie.  Ya dig?


(UH-MAZE-ING.  150 calories of sweet, cinnamony, fruity, peanut-buttery HEAVEN.)


1/2 cup plain greek yogurt

1 tbsp creamy peanut butter

1 tsp honey

1 tsp cinnamon



Super quick, super simple.  Combine all the ingredients in a sealable container.


Then mix, mix, mix senora, mix it all the time…


(Jump in de line, rock your body in time… OK, I believe you!)

…until you have THIS!

  1. Anything with peanut butter is good for me. I'd eat it out of an old shoe if required, but this dip would be a much better way to enjoy it. :)

    1. I know, right? And that's the wonderful thing about PB--it has such a big flavor that you can only use a little (in comparison to the amount of yogurt) and it still tastes like it's mostly peanut butter. I gave one of my coworkers a slice of apple with the dip on it & her eyes got huge & she said, "it's like I'm eating icing on a cupcake!"

  2. how long is it good for? oh, and yums yums yums. me likey the PB.

    1. Well, I mixed up a batch with the proportions in the recipe & used it all week--then I polished it off, so I can safely say--at least a week. :)
