At our house we have two adorable little boys under the age of four who really love to dip things. They will eat almost anything if they can dip it, so I created a healthy dip I knew they would like. The recipe is simple, can be made ahead of time, and tastes yummy enough to eat with a spoon or dip only your fingers, as our youngest prefers. While dip can dress up a tray of fruit and veggies for something special, this one is also perfect for everyday celebrations like afternoon snack.
Peanut Butter Yogurt Fruit and Veggie Dip
1 cup plain yogurt
½ cup peanut butter
2 T honey
1/2 t cinnamon
Mix all ingredients together, stirring thoroughly. Serve with celery and/or carrot sticks, apple, pear or banana slices or other fruit and veggies.
I will confess that I have not tried to substitute almond butter or another nut butter in this recipe, but I am certain that it would turn out just great.
