Greek Yogurt Peanut Butter Fruit Dip

When it comes to eating whole foods there is nothing better than adding a little extra protein here and there to keep you satiated throughout the day.  We eat at least 6-7 servings of fruit and veggies per day as we love the idea of rainbow eating (as many colors in a day as you can).  As you would guess, Dexter and Oliver adore all fruit.  Some of their favorites include grapefruit, kiwi, strawberries and blueberries.  Actually, they love all berries!

When I heard of someone mixing peanut butter with greek yogurt I got all kinds of giddy.  I thought, YAY protein, flavor, dipping action, fun!  I was all-in.

The result was this creamy, sweet, indulgent treat that packs a whopping 13 grams of protein per 1/2 cup.  The calories sit at a mere 110 so this treat really is sinful without tipping the caloric scales away from your health goals.

Whisk the following ingredients until well incorporated:
1/2 c plain 0% greek yogurt
2 tsp natural peanut butter
1 tsp of raw honey
1/4 tsp cinnamon {can also use ground ginger for a little kick!}
1/2 tsp organic vanilla extract

I love storing everything in glass canning jars and this keeps well in the fridge for a week {if it lasts that long!}

Do you have an awesome healthy dip recipe for fruits or veggies?  I'd love to hear all about it!

We do a fruit dip in my family. Its equal parts vanilla yogurt and whipped cream. We usually do not fat cool whip. A dash of nutmeg. And orange juice til its not so thick. About the consistency of shampoo. Its great with all fruit. I like it with Mellon.
