Disclosure: I was asked to participate in the “#CrunchOn” campaign as a member of the Healthy Aperture Blogger Network. I was compensated for my time and also received free samples for recipe testing.
It only takes 5 minutes and a handful of ingredients to whip up this chocolate almond butter fruit dip. The base of this dip is Greek yogurt and almond butter, making it as healthy as it is yummy.
A piece of fruit paired with this dip is an easy, tasty snack. And, it provides a mix of protein, healthy fats, and carbohydrates. I try to have protein, carbohydrates, and fats every time I eat, including snacks. This mix gives me the energy I need, and keeps me satisfied longer. The almond butter and Greek yogurt in this dip provide protein. The almond butter also contributes fiber, healthy monounsaturated fats, vitamins, and minerals, making it a great snack option. In fact, one ounce of almonds contains: protein (6 g), fiber (4 g), fats (13 g), Vitamin E (35% DV), magnesium (20% DV), and calcium (8% DV).
This yogurt fruit dip that’s kicked up with the flavors of chocolate and almonds can be made in minutes.
Simply add Greek yogurt, almond butter, cocoa powder, honey, and vanilla extract to a bowl. Whisk it all together until it’s smooth and well combined. Then, let it cool in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
I think just about any fruit would be great paired with this dip. I served mine with strawberries, bananas, apples, and clementine segments.
