Peanut Butter Yogurt Dip

The apples are ready on one of the trees in my yard. The other day I made a killer Strawberry Dip to dip apple slices in. Today I broke out the PB 2 Powdered Peanut Butter.

Shelly's Peanut Butter Yogurt Dip

2 oz. Fage Greek Yogurt
2 heaping Tablespoons PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Vanilla)
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Maple Syrup
dash or 2 of Cinnamon

Whiz everything together in a mini food processor till smooth. Top with another dash of cinnamon.

Dipper ideas: Sliced Apples, Pears, Celery, Soy Crisps, Carrots, Fruit Skewers, Cucumber, Whole Strawberries, Banana Chunks.

If you haven't heard of PB2 yet it is basically powdered peanuts. I don't just mean pureed like peanut butter I mean powdered like peanut flour. A very cool product made by Bell Plantation. Use it in protein ice cream, protein shakes, baking, reconstitute it and use it like regular peanut butter. Here's the best part: PB2 has 85% less fat than the regular stuff. It's super high in protein and tastes awesome. Through some process the oil is squeezed out of roasted peanuts and what remains is powdered peanut butter dust. Very cool.

Smallest order is 4 jars ($3.99 a jar) but it has a long shelf life and you'll use it. Trust me. Or get together with a local pal and split an order.

Highlights of the day:

* It's my sister's birthday. She's 16 years older than me. This is a highlight because I'm 16 years younger LOL ;)

* Ass nirvana. Loving my new temperpedic leather office chair. You only get one ass in this lifetime we must treat it right.

* I got some pretty free address labels in the mail and just as I needed some. You know those free ones charities send you with a donate money request. These are so pretty I may actually send them something... and they spelled my name right. Score. Once some charity sent me the prettiest labels with hearts and roses but then spelled my name "Mitchell" Hello?!? like some dude named "Mitchell" would want hearts and roses address labels?!

Listening to: New Order "Ceremony"

I have got to order me some of the PB powder. I keep forgetting unitl I really want it for something. I have been trying to find the Fage also and can't find it here. I even wrote the company and can't find it, but I am not going to give up yet. :)Thanks for the great recipe. My trees are just about ready for picking also.

I don't know that I would like peanut dust, but do you think natural no sugar peanut butter would work? I loves me some peanut butter. Mixing it with the yogurt sound delicious.
Thank you for sharing

I too, can't find Fage here, but I have found another brand of plain "greek" yogurt. The protein content was insane! I'm so going to be trying that soon! Thanks for all the tips! I've got 18 days left til my surgery, I can't wait to try some of your "soft" foods recipes. I'm having my surgery with OWLO, and there's another woman from their support group who's also a big fan of yours. She told me she LOVES food porn, lmao. Anyway, she's at the soft food stage, and she was nervous, but she was gonna try your baked ricotta cheese recipe! Keep it up girl, we'd all starve without you! MUAH!

FINALLY! I looked at the closest place to buy PB2 & it's 4 hours away. But wait...I have to go there for a meeting next week so my GPS is loaded w/ the address. Yippe!

Hey there~ I was recently introduced to your blog and I must say I am very impressed. Thank you for sharing all your receipes. I am a peanut butter LOVER!! I have used the PB2 for several things. I am interested in making the peanut butter whip. Can I use plain yogart in place of the greek yogart? I am not a big fan of the greek yogart.

Sure regular yogurt can be used but its much less protein and more carbs... try the Greek yogurt in this I think you'll find you love it when stuff is mixed in it.

Another hit Shelly! This dip was the first thing I made when I got my shipment of PB2. Sweet and tangy and perfect with apple slices. We are having a big picnic this weekend and I may make a batch. I may even share it with the
