It’s a simple, healthy snack idea for adults losing weight or kids trying to get in enough nutrients, plus it tastes like dessert! Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt Dip is our go-to after school snack!
It isn’t hard to create time to watch Netflix, but when it comes to prepping healthy snacks and healthy meal prep we all drag our feet. Cade here, and Carrian and I wanted to create a really easy healthy snack recipe for both adults and kids that wouldn’t be time consuming or bland. I mean, you can only eat so many plain almonds or carrots. Our Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt Dip totally knocked our socks off.
There’s nothing like a good snack. I get home from work and Carrian and I often find ourselves snagging something out of the pantry while we are making dinner.
That’s not a good habit. Both of us are reaching for carbs, carbs, carbs. Nothing wrong with carbs but too much of anything is never good.
Lately Carrian and the kids have been whipping up some quick and easy snack recipes like this peanut butter Greek yogurt dip and other healthy snacks ideas, so that come snack time we can just as easily reach for something healthy instead of just the junk food.
Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt Dip
All you need to make this easy and healthy snack recipe for Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt Dip is plain Greek yogurt, though you could use a vanilla or honey flavor as well, and then whatever nut butter you prefer.
We used peanut butter in this recipe, but we’ve more often than not used almond butter. Especially homemade almond butter because it’s just so easy to throw almonds into a blender.
Simply stir the two ingredients together and be sure to gobble it up before the kids get home and take it all.
Just kidding, kids will somehow end up eating off of your plates.
How to Store Yogurt Dip for Fruit
Storing your yogurt dip for fruit is so super simple. You can use plastic containers, but if you can’t fill it all the way to the top the air and cold fridge will break down and separate the two ingredients in the dip.
Instead, place plastic wrap over the bowl, pressing the plastic down on the yogurt dip so that no air can get in.
How Long is Fruit Dip Good For?
A Greek yogurt fruit dip can be stored properly in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
I don’t know anyone who can stop picking in a fruit dip, so if you manage to store a container of it in the fridge for 2 or more weeks, Cade and I challenge you to post a picture on our Facebook Page VIP Group.
What to Serve with Fruit Dip
Fruit dip has different flavors so whatever your flavor will help you to choose what to serve with it. This healthy peanut butter Greek yogurt dip would pair well with apples, bananas, strawberries and raspberries, but not as much with a more tropical fruit, such as pineapple or mango.
- 1 (8 ounce) container plain Greek yogurt
- 1/4 Cup Smooth Peanut butter or almond butter
- In a small bowl, stir together the Greek yogurt and peanut butter.
