peanut butter and greek yogurt snack (gf)

oh my dear friends. you do not know how long it took me to take a satisfactory picture of this heavenly concoction. i’ve had this so many times in the past, but it’s just so hard to photograph. with the peanut butter discoloring the yogurt so that it turns a light, tan color, it doesn’t look very appetizing. but it’s honestly just so yummy that I wanted to share it with you guys anyways.

this is one of my favorite snacks, and I also use it as a spread for pancakes sometimes. it can also be a good post-workout snack because of the protein that the greek yogurt contains! and it’s incredibly simple to make.

in this specific picture, you can see that i’m using “once again’s” american classic organic crunchy peanut butter (whew, what a mouthful). to be honest, this has more ingredients than I normally would like in peanut butter. typically i tend to stray towards the kind that only has one ingredient: dry roasted peanuts. though this one has a lot more, all of the ingredients technically aren’t bad for you. there is organic evaporated cane sugar, palm oil, sea salt, as well as the dry roasted peanuts.

with that being said, it really is quite a good jar of peanut butter and the crunchiness adds a nice texture to the yogurt pudding.

peanut butter and yogurt snack-spread / serves 1

you will need:

  • 1 tbsp. peanut butter (crunchy or creamy, it’s to your preference)
  • 3-4 tbsp. plain greek yogurt**

the process:

  1. scoop out your peanut butter and yogurt into a bowl.
  2. stir with a spoon until it creates a whipped, fluffy texture and all the peanut butter is incorporated into the yogurt.
  3. enjoy the deliciousness that you’ve just created.

**note: the ratio of peanut butter to yogurt is entirely up to you. this recipe is very versatile; if you prefer more of the peanut butter taste, then either add more of the peanut butter, or decrease the amount of greek yogurt or vice versa.
