I’m loving this peanut butter yogurt dip that I found on Pinterest.
Mix one 5.3 ounce package of vanilla Greek yogurt
2 tbsp peanut butter
1 tbsp honey and
a dash of cinnamon
Stir it up
You can dip apples, bananas, crackers or even veggies if you want…it’s better than Nutella. Seriously, I could just eat it with a spoon.
The best part…this makes about 5 servings that are only 60 calories each. I’m also loving that I figured out how to keep apple slices from turning brown!
Slice, soak in cold water for about 5 minutes
Then soak in lemon-lime soda and put in single serving bags. So much cheaper than buying apple slices at the grocery store! Enjoy
3 ounces vanilla Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon almond butter
1/2 cup frozen blueberries

1 cup kale

1 (18 ounce) packagerefrigerated sugar cookie dough
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
1/2 cup white sugar
1 pinch salt
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon orange zest
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Slice cookie dough and arrange on greased pizza pan, overlapping edges. Press dough flat into pan. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Allow to cool.
- In a large bowl, soften cream cheese, then fold in the whipped topping. Spread over cooled crust. You can chill for a while at this point, or continue by arranging the fruit.
- Begin with strawberries, sliced in half. Arrange in a circle around the outside edge. Continue with fruit of your choice, working towards the middle. If bananas are used, dip them in lemon juice so they don’t darken. Then make a sauce to spoon over fruit.
- In a saucepan, combine sugar, salt, corn starch, orange juice, lemon juice and water. Cook and stir over medium heat. Bring to a boil, and cook for 1 or 2 minutes, until thickened. Remove from heat, and add grated orange rind. Allow to cool, but not set up. Spoon over fruit. Chill for two hours, then cut into wedges and serve.
