Peanut Butter Yogurt Fruit Dip

One of my favorite Instagram accounts is @therealfoodrds. They posted a peanut butter yogurt fruit dip this week, and we had to check it out! It’s made with 6 ingredients and I had it whipped up in a matter of minutes. Once the kids got home from school, they picked out what fruit they wanted to eat with the dip, and they got to snackin’!

Um, this stuff is incredible! It’s so good that I had to remind myself that it was dip and I was supposed to be dipping fruit into it and not just eating it with a spoon. The flavor was instant nostalgia—it reminds me of the peanut butter and Marshmallow Fluff sandwiches we used to eat as a kid. So healthy—I know! But, you know what I’m talking about.

There is something about the yogurt and cream cheese in this recipe that mimics the consistency of marshmallow fluff and the little bit of honey and vanilla gives it that sweet flavor you associate with marshmallows. But, this dip is way healthier!

The peanut butter yogurt fruit dip makes for a perfect snack whether you are a kid or an adult. It’s packed with protein and fat to keep the kids full until dinner, so we can avoid the constant rummage through the pantry scene trying to eat every simple carb they can get their hands onto. If you have kids, I’m sure you are all too familiar with this situation.

My kids loved it so much they requested it in their lunch, and I readily agreed it sounded like a perfect, healthy addition to accompany their fruit!

Here is what we used to make this amazing dip!

Instructions

  • Add all the ingredients to a food processor or blender and pulse until smooth and combined.
  • Transfer to a bowl and chill for 30 minutes.
  • Serve with fresh fruit (or maybe some dark chocolate with sea salt from Theo Chocolate).
