Healthy Peanut Butter Dip for the kids

There’s no better feeling than feeding our children healthy foods. This is why I created something delicious to make their cute little faces happy ones!

This dip is a protein packed snack that you can actually dress up the way you feel fit to. Here, I added some sliced almonds, a couple raspberries, and a toss of semisweet chocolate chips for fun! Alternatively, you can use raisins, blueberries, granola…however you decide to dress this yummy dip up, it’s going to be good!

Warning though! You may just want to make some for your adult self! Your inner child just might be calling you to make it too! ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s seriously so good.

Also, I use sliced apples but really the sky is the limit here with what you may want to dip into this luscious treat! Graham crackers are yummy as well!

Here’s the recipe and I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 fresh apples of your choice
  • 1/4 cup all natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup low fat cottage cheese
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 2 tbls pure honey or 1 tbls pure maple syrup

DIRECTIONS:

  • Melt peanut butter in the microwave until it is a smooth melted consistency.
  • In a blender, mix together the Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, and almond milk. Blend until almost smooth. Once it’s done, transfer to a small mixing bowl.
  • Next, add the remaining ingredients as well as the peanut butter and mix until it’s all combined.
  • Garnish with your own toppings that suits your taste.
  • Slice your apples the way you like.
  • Enjoy!

SIDE NOTE: It’s best if you refrigerate this dip for at least an hour before you serve. It’s not necessary, but it thickens up a little bit and tastes better cold in my opinion.
