Here is an easy to make recipe for a dip that will be perfect for summer picnics, parties or game nights. Children love the sweetness and will eat the fruit and veggies without protest.
PEANUT BUTTER DIP:1/4 C creamy peanut butter, 3 oz. low fat cream cheese, 1-2 T. apple or orange juice, 1/2 t. cinnamon, 1/8 to 1/4 C unsweetened applesauce.
1. Combine the PB, cream cheese, juice and cinnamon in a food processor or blender until smooth. Add applesauce, a little at a time, until it is the right consistency for a dip. Chill before serving with the following:
sliced bananas, carrots, celery sticks, broccoli florets, apple slices, graham cracker sticks, pretzel rods, or any assortment of fruits and veggies you choose. It’s amazing how many things taste great with peanut butter. Feel free to try it with non-traditional dippers such as pickles, pepper slices, sausage pieces or whatever. Refrigerated, it will be good for 2-3 days. If you have allergies to peanuts, try substituting another butter in the recipe.
