Lately my eldest son has been so busy with school activities that when he gets home in the afternoon he’s absolutely famished. I buy Greek yogurt in the huge Costco size tubs and we haven’t been finishing them off before it goes bad so I’ve been menu planning this week around using it all up. That’s when I remembered the first ever online recipe that I tried that really, isn’t much of a recipe at all. And it takes care of both the above problems.
I love PopSugar’s website and I especially love their fitness and food sections. This creamy peanut butter fruit dip has been in our lives for 5 years now and every time I make it the kids are fighting over who gets to lick the bowl clean. And it is stupidly simple. All that you need to do is mix together some Greek yogurt, peanut butter, sweetener (I swap the maple syrup for honey cos peanut butter and honey belong together, hello!) and a pinch of cinnamon. Then you just get dipping with whatever fruit you want, today we had apples, bananas and mandarins, but really any fruit goes well with this dip.
And the best part of this is – it’s a healthy, protein packed, low fat, low sugar snack that isn’t processed prepackaged salty junk food that doesn’t fill you up but keeps you craving more. I can’t believe I’d forgotten this great recipe!
