Peanut Butter Fruit Dip with Yogurt and Honey

This Peanut Butter Fruit Dip with Yogurt and Honey can be whipped up in minutes and only requires three ingredients.
Peanut Butter Fruit Dip

I love eating apples with peanut butter but those peanut butter calories can add up quickly.  So, instead I’ve started making a much lighter peanut butter fruit dip.  This fruit dip includes Yoplait Greek yogurt and honey which makes it sweet, fluffy and so delicious!  And, you all know I love a quick and easy recipe.

With only three ingredients, this is the perfect snack especially if you are in a hurry.  Besides the fact that it’s quick to whip up, I love that it leaves me feeling full longer which means I’m not snacking all day long.

Peanut Butter Fruit Dip with Yogurt and Honey

Ingredients

  • 1 (5.3 ounce) Yoplait Greek Yogurt
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey

Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients in small bowl.
  2. Serve with fruit.

Not in the mood for fruit?  Try this dip with graham cracks or even pretzels.

I hope you enjoy this snack as much as we did!
