You know the feeling: Maybe boredom has set in at work. Or perhaps stress is affecting you at the end of the day. Sometimes, you’re just plain hungry! No matter what it is, there are times that the only thing that can satisfy your cravings is something sweet and creamy. Don’t give in to sugary, fattening snacks. Instead, whip up the easiest treat you’ll ever make: Our Skinny Peanut Butter Yogurt Dip.
This delicious, low-calorie dip has all of the sweet, nutty, peanut buttery goodness you’re craving. Plus, it has a dose of clean-eating Greek yogurt for scrumptious, creamy texture and a boost of protein. And unlike store-bought dips, our recipe has only two ingredients! There’s no added sugar, but you can increase the sweetness by dipping fruit into our Skinny Peanut Butter Yogurt Dip. It’s the perfect way to satisfy those afternoon cravings or post-dinner munchies without packing on the calories. Serve it to kids for a family friendly snack that is as healthy as it is tasty!
Why We Recommend Crunchy Peanut Butter
Okay, we know some of you out there are creamy peanut butter lovers. The reason we like to make our Skinny Peanut Butter Yogurt Dip with chunky peanut butter is because it creates a satisfying crunch. Often times, I find myself craving something crunchy just as much as something sweet! If you really dislike chunky peanut butter (or, you just never have it around the house), swap-in creamy peanut butter. You can also make your own to leave things chunky.
In fact, you can use your favorite type of nut butter for this recipe. Yes, that includes almond butter, cashew butter, sunflower butter, or anything else you use on the regular. Here are some of the healthiest nut butter brands on the market.
Some of our followers have recommended using PB2, a powdered form of peanut butter where the oils are removed. Here’s a great clean-eating, organic brand of PB2 if you can’t find it at the local grocery store.
