Apples dipped in peanut butter is my daughter’s favorite after-school snack.
Each time I offer her an apple she sweetly asks, “Can I have peanut butter with it?”
And each time, I smile and place a generous dollop of the creamy goodness on her plate of sliced fruit.
Of course, I would love to eat as much peanut butter as she does, but that is just not meant to be for me and my skinny jeans.
That is where this Skinny Peanut Butter Powder Fruit Dip for One comes in to save the day!
I am happy to share my little peanut butter secret with you…
powdered peanut butter!
I was introduced to this delicious peanut butter “alternative” a couple years ago and I use it almost daily. It consists of peanuts that have been pressed into a powder. Because of this process, much of the fat and calories have been eliminated.
Now don’t get me wrong, I am all about eating plenty of healthy fats and calories, but I do enjoy this particular “skinny” food.
I alternate between this peanut butter fruit dip and my Skinny Chocolate Dip for One almost every.single.night.
Here are a few other ways to enjoy powdered peanut butter:
-mix it with water and use as the filling for Ants on a Log (celery, PB, raisins)
-combine it with water and dip carrots sticks
-the ahhhmazing Apple Nachos with Salted Caramel PB Sauce
-add it to chocolate smoothies…all the flavors of a peanut butter cup!
More often than not, I purchase powdered peanut butter at Sam’s Club as it is priced well, but I have also purchased it on Amazon. I have not noticed a difference between the different brands- PB2, PBfit, NakedPB.
This healthy snack will quickly become your go-to snack just like it has for me! PB2 & fruit will definitely be a win. You’ll see!
You can even make several batches of this Skinny Peanut Butter Powder Fruit Dip in advance and store in the fridge.
