Peanut Butter Dip Recipe by Andrew Rogan

Ingredients

2 (5.3 oz or 150.2g) containers Vanilla Greek Yogurt (or 1 slightly heaping cup)

1/3 cup (85g) creamy peanut butter

1 Tbsp (21.5g) honey, or to taste

Directions

Add all ingredients to a bowl and whisk to blend until smooth. Serve with fruit (recommended bananas, apples, raspberries or strawberries), pretzels, and/or crackers. Store in refrigerator in an airtight container.

 

This peanut butter dip is perfect for a healthy snack and as a crowd pleaser. As a soluble solution, the peanut butter and greek yogurt mix together to form an evenly smooth dip, and the honey adds just the right amount of sweetness. Be careful to get the right ratio of peanut butter to yogurt—you don’t want a dip that is too stiff or too soupy.

Question: What additional ingredient(s) could improve this recipe, either for taste or presentation?
