I might have licked the bowl after making this high protein chocolate peanut butter dip on video day. I couldn’t help it! It’s so good. When you watch this video, you’ll understand why!
This dip makes snack time more fun and interactive for the kids -ok and us adults too!- so you know I had to share it with you! I love that it’s packed with protein and all the flavors kids love.
You won’t believe how easy it is to make, watch how quick it comes together!
You can dip any fruit into its chocolatey-rich delicious texture. Why did I choose chocolate? Because if you ask my kids what their favorite thing to eat is, it would be chocolate! My daughter says that chocolate is its own food group.
Because chocolate recipes are such a huge success at my house, I like to find healthier ways to incorporate this favorite flavor of this into snack time or into their lunchbox as a treat.
I like to load their lunchbox up with apple slices and strawberries for them to dip into this chocolate peanut butter dip. If you make a snack box ahead of time and are wondering how to keep the apples from browning, I will tell you not worry, with this dip, the kids will overlook that the apples have turned brown.
If you want to make this recipe with no dairy, you can start with my dairy-free yogurt recipe and make this chocolate dip from there!
If your kids love peanut butter, this Coconut Peanut Butter Dip is another must-try snack recipe. Both of these dips can be packed in one of these leak-proof snack containers.
I almost forgot, this also makes a terrific party dip for fresh fruit! Just remember to swap out the peanut butter for a nut-free alternative in case a guest has a nut allergy. Here are my favorite peanut butter alternatives, in case you need them!
What are some of your favorite dips?
Chocolate Peanut Butter Dip
- 6 ounces vanilla yogurt*
- 2 tablespoons cocoa powder unsweetened
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup or honey
- Strawberries, apple slices, and other fruit for dipping
- In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients. Refrigerate for 30 minutes and enjoy!
love this idea! My kids strangely don’t dip things, except for hummus, but I will certainly try this one. Will make it nut-free for my son’s lunchbox. The challenge, though, is his school doesn’t like anything chocolate but I’m hoping they’ll notice this is a healthy chocolate recipe!!
I hope they enjoy it! And with a nut-free version, it tastes just as delish. 🙂
This is just delicious! Thank you!
Such a fun recipe! Do you have any suggestions for making it dairy-free? My son can’t have milk (including yogurt). Thanks!
Hi Laura! For a dairy free version check out this recipe. Enjoy!
Yummy! I made this yesterday and put a small scoop of it on banana slices, arranged the slices on a tray and then threw it in the freezer. It made a delicious chocolate, peanut butter and banana treat!
I’m so glad it was a success! I just added Greek yogurt to my shopping list for an afternoon snack over here 😉
I can’t wait to try this! Yum! Are there some nut-free alternatives you’d suggest…ones that work well in this recipe? Thank you!
Hi Cindy! You can substitute the peanut butter with a nut-free butter substitute. easy peasy and just as delicious!
Peanut Butter & Chocolate… my 2 favorite things. I will for sure make this very soon.
Looks great and I always have all of those ingredients at home. I’ll have to make this as an afternoon snack for kids today.
Love that your daughter says that chocolate is its own food group. I totally agree!!
