60-Calorie Creamy Peanut Butter Fruit Dip

Jul 5 2014 - 4:00am

Apples and peanut butter is a classic healthy snack, but since one tablespoon of peanut butter contains 95 calories [1], those calories can add up, especially when you're spooning it out without measuring.

Here's a way to enjoy that creamy, nutty taste without all the calories. This fruit dip is made with nonfat Greek yogurt, so it's sweet, low in fat, and full of protein and tastes like peanut butter ice cream!

1/2 tablespoon maple syrup
