SPD: HEALTHY CINNAMON YOGURT FRUIT DIP



I may or may not have gotten ridiculously excited, to the point of almost wanting to jump up and down (don't judge me), when I made this dip. Do I say this every week for SPD? Possibly.

You have probably seen this recipe on Pinterest (which was my pinspiration), but it has a deeper meaning for me because it is very similar to a dip my Mom used to make me growing up. 

By that I mean she made it almost every single day when I came home from school, and she made it when we would travel for my soccer tournaments on the weekends. My soccer teammates would specifically request it from her because it was that good!

This one is much, much healthier than hers that had cream cheese in it (I think), but this recipe doesn't lose that yummy taste that I remember! This will be your new favorite dip for the spring and summer. Well, it will definitely be mine, but I hope yours too so that we can bond and talk about how much we love it on a weekly basis.


What You Do:

Mix 5.3 ounces of vanilla Greek yogurt, 2 tablespoons peanut butter, 1 tablespoon honey, and a dash of cinnamon in a bowl. Serve with your favorite fresh fruit!

That easy, folks.
I like to add more than just a dash of cinnamon, but that's just me. I kind of eyeball all the ingredients and taste it here and there to adapt it to what we like. That just means more dip in the mouth which means more happiness in my book.

It's obvious I'm not a food photographer...


Delicious and so easy.

If you make this and decide that it's going to be your new favorite dip, let me know so we can chat about how yummy it is with pineapple, or whatever fruit you serve it. We are HUGE pineapple fans over here.

Also, soon for SPD I will be reviewing Jillian Michael's 7 Day Drink Detox. I'm on Day 2 right now. If anyone is wondering-you still eat on this detox which is why I chose it! Stay tuned for the results on that. Hoping it's good results since this time next week I will be in NASHVILLE!

So.excited. you have no idea...

Alright-your turn! What did you make from Pinterest this week?

  10. I think I might have to try this. It has peanut butter, hello! At first I saw the pineapple and was like, pineapple dip, glorious! Even though they're just "the dippers," I still think I should give it a try.

  11. I'm always down for some fruit dip! And by down for it I mean that I might not even dip fruit in it... spooning directly into my mouth is appropriate, right? Thank you so much for sharing! Love finding healthy alternatives that still taste delicious :)

  12. I like this because you just put it in a bowl and smush it together. I mean, I could do that. haha Next week I'm planning on sticking to only fruits and salads all week so this will come in handy!

    1. I am on Day 3 too!! Let me know how your results are! I don't mind it that much - I think because I normally drink tea and this much water per day anyways. Will keep you posted!
