Fruit Dip with Peanut Butter
This is one of those crazy easy recipes that I often forget to even share because of the pure simplicity of them. I swear that sometimes I get wrapped up in needing elaborate recipes when that isn’t even what anyone wants (including myself). So today I am sharing this incredibly simple dip that I have been making for myself and my family for quite sometime, Peanut Butter Fruit Dip!
Four of the simplest ingredients you can imagine combine to make a glorious fruit dip that is generally healthy and oh so delicious! All it takes in plain yogurt, peanut butter, honey, and cinnamon.
When the peanut butter and yogurt get combined it makes this magical fluffy whipped dip that when mixed with flavorful honey and cinnamon brings you to snack time nirvana.
So how simple is this dip? Let’s take look.
How to make Peanut Butter Dip for Fruit
To start you need 4 ingredients, and all 4 of these ingredients are what I consider kitchen staples so likely you already probably have them at home.
- First Peanut Butter. Not just any peanut butter but you will want 100% peanut butter, why? First off to keep this generally healthy, if you are using peanut butter with all the added oils and sugars that is going to change the nutrition of this dip extremely fast. Second it will actually change the consistency too if you are using a peanut butter full of extra stuff like preservatives. Luckily for you 100% peanut butter is getting easier to find in stores these days or what I do is make my own, it is so incredibly easy, I even have a post about it; How to Make 100% Peanut Butter.
- Second Plain Yogurt. You will want plain yogurt for this recipe, if you have greek yogurt it will work but both the taste and texture won’t quite be the same. Greek yogurt is a lot tangier, resulting in a tangy dip, and a lot thicker resulting in a not as light and fluffy dip. I also recommend a low-fat plain yogurt to keep it healthier.
- Honey. Just a tad of honey to add to the sweetness and flavor, just remember though honey shouldn’t be fed to babies under 1 years of age!
- Ground Cinnamon. My family adores cinnamon so sometimes I will add a little more than what I noted in the recipe but that is all up to you. Cinnamon will just bring a little extra flavor note that takes this Peanut Butter Fruit Dip over the top.
So now you have all of your ingredients, this is how complicated it is to make 😉
Add yogurt, peanut butter, honey, and cinnamon to a bowl. Mix together until fully combined. Serve immediately or keep in an airtight continer in the refrigerator.
Boom, SNACK TIME!
This is by far one of my favorite afternoon snacks, and you bet I will be packing this for Archie’s snack box when he starts preschool this fall.
It seriously hits all of my boxes; healthy-ish, delicious, easy, quick.
So what goes with this fruit dip?
My favorites are the following:
- Apples are hands down my favorite, any variety, peanut butter was already done of my favorite things to put with apples and this just ups the deliciousness
- Strawberries are also delicious with this whipped yogurt fruit dip
- Bananas, while it is hard to dip the bananas I recommend spreading some on top of the bananas
- One might even suggest celery, if you are into vegetables
- Or skip the fruits & veggies and go for some graham crackers
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt
- 1/2 cup 100% peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- Add yogurt, peanut butter, honey, and cinnamon to a bowl. Mix together until fully combined. Serve immediately or keep in an airtight continer in the refridgerator.
This recipe can easily be doubled or halfed to make the amount you need.
To keep this recipe on the healthier side I recommend using low-fat plain yogurt and 100% peanut butter.
