You guys, I’ve been sick all week. I haven’t been able to make myself cook anything other than some minimal effort soups in the Crockpot (although FYI, some Crockpot recipes are coming to you soon here on Eat Of The Moment!). So this week’s “recipe” is easier than the easiest thing ever. So easy, in fact, I kinda even feel bad calling this a recipe. I have been eating this dip nonstop lately and it’s nutritious and good and versatile, so I thought I would share it with you Gigglers.
You’re probably like, “WTF, this girl is obsessed with greek yogurt” because I used it in last week’s recipe too, but I mean, yeah it’s true. I’m obsessed with greek yogurt. It tastes great, it’s good for you and it is chock full of protein, so it keeps you fuller longer. Combine that with a nut butter, and you have a great-tasting high protein dip that’s perfect for snacking. I eat this with fruit as an afternoon pick-me-up or to fuel me before a yoga class.
Peanut Butter-Yogurt Dip
total time: 5 minutes
total hands on time: 5 minutes
makes 5ish servings
What you’ll need:
1 cup of greek yogurt (plain or vanilla)
4 tbsps peanut butter or other nut butter
1 tbsp of honey or agave nectar
What you’ll do:
1. Combine ingredients and mix until well combined.
2. Chill at least 30 minutes, then serve.
This will keep in the fridge for a few days. Feel free to play with the proportions of yogurt, honey and peanut butter based on what tastes good to you. I used crunchy on this particular day, but I actually prefer this with smooth peanut butter. And try using almond or cashew butter, too! Try a sprinkle of cinnamon, a smidge of maple syrup, or sub in Nutella if you want to go super-sweet.
Peanut Butter-Yogurt Dip is also a great snack for kids, providing they are nut and dairy allergy-free.
Other ideas to spread this goodness:
-Dip strawberries and bananas in Peanut Butter-Yogurt Dip and freeze for a frozen treat
-Spread between two cookies for a healthier version of an Oreo
-Serve with crackers and veggies as an unexpectedly sweet dip at a party
-Slip a scoop into a smoothie for sweetness and protein
-Mix in pureed pumpkin or bananas for more fiber and fruit
