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!

Yummmmm! I used the powdered Peanut Butter and Coconut Milk yogurt (I'm vegan) and I can't get enough. My boyfriend and I are addicted. We made baked apple chips the other night and dipped them into this yumtastic recipe! <3 <3 FREE book!!! *-ZEN to 10-* Activate Your Balanced Mind, Body & Soul and Lose 10lbs! http://tinyurl.com/ZENto10ebook

I will save you even more calories! Use powdered PB! It is 20 calories for 1 Tbsp and has fantastic PB taste!! Plus it would mix super easy into the yogurt! I would swap the Tbsp of regular PB for just a Tbsp of the powdered in the above recipe and bam....75 calories saved!

We make our own peanut butter in our Vitamix, but for this recipe, I'll try using PB2 (powdered peanut butter). 2 Tbsps has 1.5g of total fat, 5g total carbs and 45 calories. We buy it off of Amazon. I even use it in my homemade hot cocoa.

I just calculated this recipe using a calorie counter with the exact ingredients and if you mark it as 4 servings, it comes out to 86 calories a serving, not 66. If I put in 5 servings, it's comes out to 69 calories a serving. Was there something I missed?

Because of the greek yogurt, how long can this last at room temp?

Just made the dip with honey a couple of days ago.. what a difference! I enjoyed it both ways, but definitely recommend getting all of the ingredients in there if you can.

Just tried this snack out! I didn't have honey so I had to skip that ingredient. The cinnamon is really important, so definitely don't leave that out. It was a delicious though. Only problem is, I usually only eat 1/2 an apple with some peanut butter... but I found myself devouring the whole apple with this stuff.. not that a whole apple is bad! But I'm not sure if it means I ate the same amount of peanut butter as usual :) A new favorite though!
