How to make dessert dip
Let the cream cheese and peanut butter come to room temp first. This will make it easier to blend.
Blend or food process all ingredients, except for the chocolate chips. Hand beaters will work if you don’t own a food processor.
Add chocolate chips to taste, and then serve in a bowl.
Healthy Peanut Butter Fruit Dip
Try this lightened version with fewer calories to serve as a snack between meals or to your kids after school.
In the recipe below, replace the cream cheese with Greek yogurt or plain yogurt in an equal quantity. It also works with mashed banana. Reduce the amount of salt to a slight pinch. Add pure maple syrup or honey to taste.
Add a little cinnamon, ginger, or pumpkin pie spice.
I wouldn’t recommend the healthy dip if you plan to bring the drop to an event such as a barbecue, football game, or potluck. For those occasions, I recommend using the recipe below. It’s a great healthy snack for the whole family.
Easy peanut butter dip ingredients
You will need:
Cream cheese, peanut butter, vanilla, and cream cheese (vegan versions also work!) Sweetener, optionally chocolate chips, and a pinch of salt will bring out the sweetness.
You can spread the chocolate chip dessert with regular butter, cashew, almond, macadamia, Coconut Butter, or vegan butter.
I CAN’T VOUCH FOR THEM since I haven’t tried the light or fat-free cream cheese.
The video shows that crunchy or smooth peanuts will produce a lighter shade. The photos show almond butter as the recipe.
You can use any sweetener. Coconut sugar, whether white, brown, or unrefined, is refined with honey, agave, or date sugar. For a sugar-free dip that is keto-friendly, use erythritol.
You can leave the peanut butter dip out at a party for a few hours or while transporting the bowl.
It’s great to have lefgreats after a couple of hours. It’s best to keep the food in the fridge to maintain freshness.
Keep leftovers in the fridge for up to 5 days.
Although you can technically freeze the dessert dip after freezing, it is not recommended because the texture won’t be as creamy and smooth.
