Easy and Healthy Chocolate-Peanut Butter Dip

I have seen recipes for this dip circulating around Pinterest for some time...but when I saw the original recipe for this dip on Nicole's blog, I knew it was something I wanted to make.  While her recipe was for a Peanut Butter Dip... I thought how easy would it be to turn it into a Chocolate Peanut Butter Dip with the addition of a few ingredients.

I wasn't disappointed by the changes I made.  Both the original version and this variation are delicious though.  Especially good with some cut up fruit of the fall season...apples, pears, and bananas.

With only 4 ingredients, it couldn't be easier to throw together and did I mention it's healthy too?

I was amazed at the texture the yogurt and the peanut butter made when it was mixed.  Honestly, it was like a nice thick frosting.  Nothing bad about that!  It was a nice change from eating fruit plain. You might even be temped to eat this with a spoon, it's that good.  

Sometimes the simplest recipes make the most outstanding dishes!

  1. This looks genius and combines my two favorite ingredients PB and chocolate! I was wondering if yogurt and PB would work together in my afternoon snack but this just motivates me to try it :)

    LOVE it!

    1. you will be very surprised by the results. I am actually considering frosting cupcakes with this stuff sometime!

  2. Great work! This looks so decadent. You can never go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate, and adding some CHO just takes this to the next level. We'll have to give this a shot soon!


  3. I want to make that now!

    My kids would love it!

  4. Looks delicious Renee! Hey, I am commenting after my twin sister - what a coincidence! (Hi Jenn!)

  5. This recipe is a winner! Love the ingredients in this. I mix peanubutter flour with fat free Greek yogurt and use it as a dip for sliced apples. I will now be trying it with the addition of cocoa powder.Thanks Renee.

  6. This is a great idea! I think my sister will really love this. We've been looking for healthy snack ideas to liven up fruit. Thanks!

  7. Is it bad that it is eight in the morning and I want to go make this right now? xo

  8. I have been eating an apple with this everyday since I saw this recipe... it's great... I could eat it with a spoon... very filling.

  9. i tried this with peanut butter powder it was less fat with all the taste.


Please share your thoughts! I'd love to hear from you!
