Give your salty and savory dips a well-deserved break for a while. It’s time to take a step into the sweet side of things. Whether you’re looking for an after-school snack for your kids, a craving kicker for your afternoon sweet tooth, or a party-worthy treat that’ll stand out in a crowd, you’re in luck. We’ve come across a healthy—yet you’d never know it—sweet dip that’s spread like wildfire across Pinterest boards with over 50,000 saves.
With only three ingredients, this dippable dream makes the perfect last-minute fix that pairs perfectly with sliced apples, strawberries, bananas, and celery. You can even throw in some graham crackers or Nilla wafers if you’re venturing into “healthy” dessert territory. Though, after having a taste, just taking it in by the spoonful makes a very strong case.
This recipe is insanely simple and quick, using ingredients you most likely have on hand already. All you need for this Peanut Butter Dip is creamy peanut butter, Greek yogurt, and honey. The result: a velvety, protein-packed, not-too-sweet dip that is scrumptious on any vessel of your choosing. This particular recipe—which you can find here at Listotic—calls for one cup of Greek yogurt, ½ cup of peanut butter, and honey to taste (about 1-3 tablespoons).
After whipping and whisking this delightful concoction together, serve it in a ramekin surrounded by your favorite dippers, and you’ll find that you spent more time slicing the apples and bananas than mixing the real star of the show.
For those who love to customize, this fruit dip can be tweaked to fit your preference. In this recipe, the 2:1 ratio of yogurt and peanut butter yields a perfectly creamy result. If you want it a tad thicker, mix in a dollop more peanut butter. You can also switch out plain Greek yogurt for vanilla, which eliminates the need for quite as much honey. You can use agave nectar instead of honey, or almond butter in lieu of peanut butter. Stir in a little cinnamon for extra flavor, maybe some nutmeg. The possibilities are endless! If serving at a school party or church reception, top with chocolate chips or peanut butter chips for a festive garnish.
