Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt Fruit Dip



Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt Fruit Dip

"You got yogurt in my peanut butter! ... You got peanut butter in my yogurt!"  And just like the famous combination of peanut butter and chocolate from Reese's, the pairing really works.

Now, as a little aside, remember that little Reese's commercial bit ...

 ... from sometime-in-the-1980's where two people crash into one another and accidentally mush together their chocolate and their peanut butter?  And they say, "You got chocolate in my peanut butter! ... You got peanut butter on my chocolate!"  Come on, remember it??  {please tell me I'm not the only one}

Well ... that commercial is now considered 'vintage.'  Vintage!  When I did an Internet search for that commercial, this is what came up ... See?? ... vintage.

   
Since I grew up in the '80s, ... well ... I guess that makes me vintage, too.  More than vintage, actually.  Since I was born in the '70s.  Hmm.

The combination of Greek yogurt and peanut butter may not be vintage, but it is surprisingly good.  After making Nutella Greek yogurt dip a few weeks ago, I decided to apply the concept to peanut butter too.  And it worked!

When served up with some sliced apples, animal crackers, or Elvis-style with bananas, it's a really tasty and low-guilt treat.

I tried making this with both plain Greek yogurt and with vanilla.  Using vanilla Greek yogurt makes all the difference ... both the hubby and I agreed that the vanilla yogurt version was the way to go.

So while this may not be a vintage flavor combination, I think you'll enjoy getting some Greek yogurt in your peanut butter.  Hmmmmmm ... I wonder how it would taste to get some chocolate in my Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt Dip??

  5. I made this a couple of days ago and it was DELICIOUS! I've always liked dipping my apples in peanut butter, but this recipe really helps to lighten things up. I will enjoy this for years to come. Great idea- thanks so much!

  6. I think you should drop a handful of chocolate chips into your PB Greek yogurt dip ASAP... By "accident," of course! It looks delicious, and I'd definitely eat mine with animal crackers or apple slices too. Yum!

  7. Thanks for a great recipe.. I was looking for a PB dip for my rolls as well as my rice wrapss.. I will have all my veggies and PB delivered tomorrow so this will be handy for Sunday brunch for sure.

    I do not know who you are but the line of you saying "vintage" cause you were born in 70s made me laugh out so loud since I am in the same boat with you..! In addition, I'm rather vintage and as you may guess, I do love vintage stuff all the time..
