How are you doing on your New Year’s resolutions? I suppose these days we don’t refer to them so much as resolutions but rather as goals, but either way we all know we tend to make changes when the calendar flips over. For me that’s been a re-dedication to my health and fitness, and making sure I get a good balance of foods in my diet. Including snacks, hello!
I don’t know about you all, but in the past few months I’ve gotten completely obsessed with peanut powder. It’s been a great way to get peanutty flavor into recipes without making things sticky or extremely dense, which is something I tend to not want when I’m making smoothies or pancakes! Peanut powder blends easily into all sorts of recipes, so it’s perfect for pretty much anything.
This peanut butter fruit dip is incredibly easy and a great way to get your kids interested in snacking on fruit instead of sweets. The slightly tangy, peanutty taste plays off sweet fruits like berries wonderfully, and it’s even a great way to snack on celery. Because Jif Peanut Powder contains only peanuts and no added salt or sugar, combining it with minimal ingredients makes for a wholesome snack the whole family enjoys.
Now, you could also pair peanut butter fruit dip with graham crackers, pretzels, or cookies, but if you’ve got access to gorgeous fresh fruits (and are trying to keep your snacks in check) grab your apple slicer or paring knife instead! This dip is also a really great way to top off your morning granola or add flavor to those whole-grain toaster waffles.
All you need to make this peanut butter fruit dip is Greek yogurt, honey, and Jif Peanut Powder. Blend the ingredients together using a hand mixer (or even just a spoon), and you’re ready to serve it up in under five minutes. This protein-packed snack is perfect for after school or the midday slump when you just gotta have something sweet.
If you’ve never had peanut powder before, it’s easy to find in stores. It’s stocked right with the other varieties of peanut butter. On a recent trip to Walmart (we get our cats’ insulin there – yes, weird, I know) I grabbed both regular and plain flavors, and also picked up some organic fruit and milk while I was at it. I’m happy to see more organic options showing up all over the place!
We like this peanut butter fruit dip best with fresh apples and strawberries, but try it with graham crackers, cookies, or even on its own and as protein-packed snack.
- 1 cup plain or vanilla Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup JIF Peanut Powder
- 1 tablespoon honey, or to taste
- In a bowl, blend together yogurt, peanut powder, and honey using a hand mixer. The dip should be smooth and slightly fluffy.
You can find Jif Peanut Powder at your local Walmart. It’s right by all the other peanut butter varieties. Give it a try!
