Wow. What a crazy couple of days! My parents flew into Seattle from Germany yesterday and had a rental car waiting so they could drive to Portland. Their plane was scheduled to arrive around 11 am, so I woke the kids up early for a mini road trip to surprise oma and opa (German for grandma and grandpa) in Seattle. We made it to the airport in time and even found the international arrivals without a fuss. My parents were totally shocked to see us! I think it took them a solid 5 minutes to even realize who we were. They were able to cancel their rental car reservation and we braved traffic together for 6 hours back to Portland. Today I was hustling to get everything ready for the next few days full of family gatherings. Everything was fine until I got rear-ended by someone who was clearly not paying attention at all. Despite that setback, I got everything finished and now I'm working on posting this tasty recipe!
If you haven't heard, we just released our latest e-cookbook for clean eating baby and toddler foods! I was considering adding this dip to the book since my kids LOVE it, but decided to share it here instead. It's so easy to make and definitely healthy! My kids typically dip carrots, celery, apples, and bananas into it. I can't think of any other vegetables that would pair well with this dip, but most any fruit would do! Not only do my kids ask for this nearly every week, it's frequently requested at play dates.
Total time: 5 minutes | Serves: 2-4
- 1 cup plain greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup pure unsalted peanut butter
- 1 TBSP honey
- Mix all ingredients together until combined.
- Serve with sliced apples, banana, carrots, or celery- enjoy!
- Avoid buying non-fat or low-fat yogurt. Children (and adults) need healthy fats to feel satiated and for proper cell function among many other things.
- Look for peanut butter that does not have any added salt or sugars. Peanuts should be the only ingredient.
- Store any leftover dip in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
