Creamy (Healthy) Peanut Butter Dip… and some acceptable “double dipping”
Yields 1 cup or 4 (1/4-cup) servings.


Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup (may substitute honey)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • A pinch (1/16 teaspoon) kosher salt
  • 1 (5.3-ounce) container (or 2/3 cup) plain Greek yogurt*
  • Optional dippers: apple slices, banana chunks, carrot & celery sticks, graham crackers, honey wheat pretzels, etc.
  • Optional double dip: granola, Qi’a (by Nature’s Path), mini chocolate chips, raisins, shredded coconut, etc.

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the peanut butter and maple syrup until smooth, and then stir in the vanilla and salt.  Add the Greek yogurt, and stir until completely incorporated.
  2. Serve with apple slices or dippers of choice.  If using, place the preferred double-dip toppings in small bowls and serve alongside.  (We often mix granola with several of the other choices for a single, mixed-up crunchy topping.)

Notes

  • *I often use a single-serve container of nonfat Stonyfield Greek yogurt, but 2% or whole milk Greek yogurt may be used as well.
