Snack Attack: Creamy Peanut Butter Dip and Fruit Slices

How to Make Apples and Peanut Butter Lower in Calories

Apples and peanut butter is a classic healthy snack, but since one tablespoon of peanut butter contains 95 calories, those calories can add up, especially when you're spooning it out without measuring.

Here's a way to enjoy that creamy, nutty taste without all the calories. This fruit dip is made with nonfat Greek yogurt, so it's sweet, low in fat, and full of protein and tastes like peanut butter ice cream!
