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!
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!
