Fast and Easy Peanut Butter Yogurt Fruit Dip #AppleWeek

Veggie Wash provided me with product for recipe development and a great prize package for our readers as part of #AppleWeek.  All opinions are my own. 

This fun dip is perfect for snacking. It just has a few simple ingredients and comes together in not time at all.  The best part is all of the ingredients are wholesome as well. Perfect after school snack or fun for a party!



      Are you a snacker?  We love snacks at our house, especially on the weekends. When it's nice out we tend to be outside most of the day. Whether we are working or playing, it is hard to stop for a meal. Plus our dinner time gets pushed back so we can utilize as much daylight as possible.


       So instead of eating a regular breakfast and lunch we snack on simple things throughout the day so we aren't ready to gnaw our own arms off by the time we finally sit down to dinner.

      Then as the weather cools off, we become football fans. Our doors are always open on Sundays during the season. There is almost always a pot of chili on the stove and snacks on the counter. People come, grab some grub, watch the game and talk some smack. It's fun as long as I'm winning! 😉


    Sometimes thise snacks come in the form of delicious buffalo chicken taquitos, kickin' corn dip or one of my new favorites, pulled pork dip.  While I do love a good gooey melted cheese dip, sometimes it's nice to have something a bit healthier to offer.

      That is where this dip comes in. It is really tasty, super quick and easy to make and you can feel good about it when everyone goes back for more.   All you have to do is stir together a few simple ingredients and dip away.  We love this dip with slices apples, but it is also great on graham crackers. I would imagine it would be wonderful on a variety of fresh fruit.


     I was lucky enough to get some Veggie Wash to try in conjunction with #appleweek. It helps to get the residue and wax off the apples before you eat them. That way there's really nothing between your apples, your dip and your taste buds!


      I don't know about you, but I am really sad to see #appleweek coming to an end. It is probably good though, because the number of recipes I want to try already outnumbers the hours I have to make them! Besides there are a couple more fun events coming down the pike. I don't want to spoil the surprise, but one rhymes with #bumpkinweek and the other rhymes with #choctobermest. 😁


       So go ahead and whip up a batch of this yummy dip, slicea few apples and dig in!

  1. I'm actually kind of sorry to see Apple week end. My recipe box is full of new recipes to try though and I've asked Clint one last time to get out and please bring me some more apples so I can try a few new recipes. Thank you for hosting such a fun week. (Now if I could just win a fun prize in the giveaway 😉)

  2. Apples and Peanut Butter are one of my favorite flavor profiles. I know I would just love some of this dip on a beautiful crisp apple wedge.

  4. I love adding diced apples to my morning oatmeal along with candied pecans, raisins, chia seeds, flaxseeds and pure maple syrup. My kids love when I make them apple nachos...Slices topped with caramel and varies nuts, seeds and candies!

  8. Hi Carlee, I love peanut butter, only the crunchy type though. Would never have thought to mix it with yogurt. This is one dip I'm going to have to try for sure. Pinning for future reference.

  11. My kids seriously love peanut butter. I am constantly having to buy more (like every week). This is a delicious way to stretch it further while still letting them dip their apples! Thanks for sharing your recipe with us at Merry Monday this week!

    1. I'd get along great with your kids then. Peanut butter is one of my weaknesses. Adding yogurt gives it a great dipping consistency and would definitely help stretch it a bit =)

  12. I just LOVE when a recipe has only ingredients that I already have in the house! I need to try this one. Might just be truck friendly enough for the husband :)
