My Happy Accident: Chocolate Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt Dip

``Chocolate Peanut Butter Yogurt Dip

Every now and then, it seems I have a happy accident in the kitchen. Today’s happy accident needed to be shared immediately because it was so good!

We’ve been rocking Greek yogurt in our house for a while now. I love it because it has a bazillion grams of protein, ok maybe 14+, but that is still pretty awesome. Growing up I was never really a fan of yogurt, and it took me a while to get past my yogurt aversion but I am finally beginning to embrace it.

Toddler lunch plans are always a challenge and so when Will pulled out the container of plain non-fat Greek yogurt I bought to add to smoothies, I knew I needed to add some flavor so he would enjoy it. I decided to try something different and mixed 1 Tablespoon of 25% less sugar Nesquick into 1/2 the container and serving it with apples. He liked it, but I craved something a little richer. So with the remaining 1/2 container I added a tablespoon of peanut butter and 1 tablespoon of Nesquick and the results were impressive. I could have sworn I was eating chocolate mousse, it was so rich and creamy!

Here is my recipe if you feel inspired:

Chocolate Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt Dip

One 6oz single serve container of plain non-fat Greek Yogurt
2-3 Tablespoons of creamy peanut butter (I used Peter Pan)
2-3 Tablespoons of Powdered Nesquick chocolate milk mix 
for extra sweetness add sugar or stevia to taste to balance out the tang of the yogurt.
Pour off any extra liquid in the yogurt container, then mix with Peanut Butter. Add Chocolate Milk mix, and then sugar to taste. Try not to over mix or it will get runny. Enjoy alone, or use as a dip with apples or graham crackers!

    uhh…yum! 🙂 Will have to try that! Don’t think I have powdered choc milk mix though – wonder if it would work w/ hershey’s syrup or FF fudge sauce? Oh, the possibilities!! 🙂

  2. I am not sure if it would work as well because I think the liquid chocolate would make it runny. Plain Cocoa with sugar or stevia could work too. Even hot chocolate mix could work.
