Healthy Peanut Butter Dip

Healthy Peanut Butter Dip is a guilt free way to enjoy peanut butter with fruit, celery, or pretzels. Peanut Butter is great for you, but in small doses. With high calorie and fat contents it is pretty easy to over do it. Especially when you love peanut butter as much as I do.

In this Healthy Peanut Butter Dip, Greek Yogurt provides a smooth texture that doesn't leave you dry mouthed and thirsty like plain peanut butter does. It allows a healthy amount of peanut butter to be stretched to max so you can enjoy that delicious peanut butter flavor for more than just a few bites.

1/4 cup Creamy Peanut Butter = 460 calories
1/4 cup+ Healthy Peanut Butter Dip = 223 calories

This is a great make ahead recipe. I have had my healthy peanut butter dip in these air tight jars for 3 days and it's still fresh as can be. Whip up some of this dip for your next party, brunch, snack time, or your kids after school snack.

Healthy Peanut Butter Dip
Makes enough for 2-3 apples sliced in 16 thin slices

1/2 cup Low Fat Plain Greek Yogurt
3 TB Creamy Peanut Butter
2 tsp Organic Agave Nectar

-Mix all ingredients together until smooth with no lumps.
-Dip thin sliced apples, bananas, strawberries, celery, or pretzels to enjoy.
-Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days
-Use more or less of each ingredient if you desire, but I found the above amounts to be 
 just right.
