Hi friends! Hope you’re all having a lovely hump day 🙂
I’m praying for all you peeps in the middle of a blizzard – hope you’re stocked on bread and wine! I’m not gonna lie, it dropped to the 40s this morning here, and I thought I was going to freeze to death. Florida has officially ruined me. Anything below 70 feels like torture now! Eeek.
Anyways, today I threw together something yummy and wanted to share with you all. I came home from running errands and felt a little light headed and realized I hadn’t had any protein today! Yikes. Get it together Beth. So I looked in my fridge and found some plain low-fat Greek yogurt and some apples. Then I decided to make up a dip with the Greek yogurt.
One of my FAV go-to snacks is an apple and PB. So I mixed some PB into the Greek yogurt, along with a little honey, and BOOM. Yum city, trick. High in protein (about 14 grams for the whole bowl!), also high in taste 🙂
Here’s the recipe:
1/2 cup low-fat plain Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon natural peanut butter
1 teaspoon honey (can use 2 tsp if not sweet enough)
Mix all ingredients together until fully mixed. Great for dipping fruit in! Enjoy!
*This yields about 2-3 servings, so you can definitely throw it in the fridge and save some for later!
Nutrient breakdown for WHOLE bowl of dip (keep in mind it makes more than 1 serving):
Calories – 265
Protein – 14 g
Carb – 26 g
Sugars – 21 g
Fat – 7 g (this fat is only from the PB, so it is healthy fats! BUT be mindful when choosing peanut butter; go for natural rather than reduced fat, and look at the ingredients. You want one with minimal ingredients!)
Hope y’all like! Happy Nutrition Month!! Thanks for reading.
