Hey guys, winter is almost over! It was a beautiful 60 degrees here in NJ yesterday, and Aldo and I went outside for a run. Okay okay, it was a jog/waddle at times but hey, we got out there and took advantage of the weather. I am starting to see some daffodils poking through the ground and asparagus was on sale the other day! All of this means that spring is coming and I couldn’t be more excited. I just hope the snow in Vermont stays around long enough for our ski trip in a couple of weeks, but other than that, I am so ready to say goodbye to winter.

But this post has nothing to do with asparagus or springtime (although I have an awesome asparagus recipe I’ll be posting soon!). This post is about this Healthy Peanut Butter Fruit Dip. This dip is so delicious. It is super creamy, crunchy, and has just the right amount of sweetness to satisfy my dessert craving without being too sugary. I have been making this fruit dip for weeks anytime I need a snack. The dip contains my favorite things – peanut butter powder combined with chocolaty crunchy cacao nibs. So basically, it is peanut butter & chocolate, and we all know that is a heavenly combination. The dip only takes a couple of minutes to stir together and satisfies all my snack cravings, and it is perfect with sliced apples and bananas.

The peanut butter powder used for the dip has very little fat but all the flavor of peanut butter. Peanut butter powder is made in the process of expelling peanut oil from peanuts. The remaining peanut mass is dried and powdered to make a low fat peanut butter powder. The chocolate cacao nibs add a nice flavor and crunch to the dip. I absolutely love the Wild Sweet Nibs from Wild Foods because they are slightly sweetened (just a touch!) and don’t have the bitterness of other 100% dark chocolate cacao nibs.

  1. This looks so good!! I don’t eat enough fruit… this dip could change that 😉 We’ve had a weird week… it was 15C the other day, but now it’s -10C. It felt like spring but it doesn’t anymore!! Ah, Alberta. We won’t see real signs of spring til the end of April, basically, but I can’t really complain since we’ve had a pretty good winter.

    1. Thanks, Natasha! Yea I am not a big fan of fruit in the winter (my survival instincts make me crave chili, steak & potatoes, etc.), but with this dip I enjoy quite a lot of fruit in the winter, which is why I’ve been making this dip all the time!

    1. For full disclosure, Aldo thinks peanut butter on apples is weird so maybe it’s not for everyone, but I love love love peanut butter on apples and bananas, and this dip is a much healthier and more delicious alternative to slathering peanut butter all over those fruits!

    1. I’ve heard of the ice water trick but never tried it – good to know it works, I’ll have to keep that in mind! And yes, I learned about peanut butter powder through blogging as well, isn’t it great how we come across new foods all the time, especially because of our work/hobbies?

  2. You should’ve seen our faces when we saw your post:)
    The timing is perfect! We just bought a big jar with homemade peanut butter in a farmers market last week and are on the lookout for new ideas and recipes besides the classic PB&J and PB&Bananas.
    We honestly can’t wait to try that one out!
    Thanx so much dear Kate!
