Healthy, Low Sugar Fruit Dip
This healthy peanut butter fruit dip is so easy to make, and so good. You’ll need just four simple ingredients, plus fruit for dipping. We added just a teaspoon of honey to sweeten this high-protein dip.
How to Make Peanut Butter Fruit Dip
Add your favorite all natural peanut butter, coconut milk or whole plain yogurt, honey and vanilla together in a bowl. Whisk together until it is smooth.
I like to use a crunchy peanut butter, but feel free to use a creamy if that is what your kids like. Cut your apples and pears into wedges and bananas into slices. Dip away! See, I told you that it was simple!
Provide a Balance of Protein, Fruit, and Fat
Fruit and dip is more than an easy and yummy after school snack. It provides awesome nutrition in the form of fruit, protein and healthy fats. So your kids have the energy they need after school to do homework and play!
