5 Ingredient Buckeye Dip: 5 simple ingredients come together to create a dip that is healthy, yet decadent tasting peanut butter yogurt dip. This easy fruit dip is perfect for apples, pretzels and strawberries.
In case you don’t know, college football is a SERIOUS event at my house.
We plan our weekends around big games. Actually, we spend the majority of Saturdays hosting football parties.
Unless there is a big Buckeye game on. Then my husband INSISTS we watch the game alone. Preferably him on the big screen and the kids and I in another room.
He sounds a bit like a crazy fan don’t ya think?!
But I married the man that way, and even though I did not grow up with a love of college football–I have one now. He has rubbed off on me. Well that and the fact we have lived in the south for more than a decade where football seems more important than just about anything–HA!!
One thing I have ALWAYS loved about football is the food. I know you all are nodding your heads right now!
I thought so.
But what I am thinking about today is Buckeye Dip.
Peanut Butter Yogurt Dip
Yep, you can tell where my team alliance is, can’t ya? But seriously, even if I was a Michigan fan, I would be all about this chocolate peanut butter dip–hello Chocolate Peanut Butter Perfection!!
And this yogurt fruit dip is only 5 ingredients (and healthy ingredients to boot)–so I can be in and out of the kitchen so fast, my husband won’t even complain about the noise I am making when he is watching his beloved sport.
I think this peanut butter yogurt dip is best served with pretzels for a sweet and salty perfect bite. But graham crackers, strawberries, and apple slices work as well. Heck, just a spoon does the job too.
Seriously–you all MUST try this dip.
Even my husband can be consoled from a loss with a bowl of this dip.
Okay, scratch that, that was a lie. I don’t think anything gets him over a loss, but that is his problem. Buckeye Dip gets me out of the worst of funks, that is for sure.
Notes on Greek Yogurt Peanut Butter Dip:
- I used natural peanut butter for this dip, you can certainly use any peanut butter you like. Even crunchy peanut butter would add a nice texture to this peanut buttter yogurt dip.
- I also strongly suggest plain Greek yogurt when making this yogurt dip. Can you use regular yogurt? Yes, but the dip will be less thick and harder to dip pretzels and fruit into it.
- Can you use Vanilla Greek yogurt in this Buckeye Dip? Yes, but then omit the maple syrup and vanilla extract. This yogurt dip will be a lot sweeter.
A tip on how to keep fruit from browning when serving this Fruit Yogurt Tip:
I love to serve peanut butter yogurt dip with fresh apples and strawberries.
But how do you keep the apples from browning?
Yes, you can slice the apples and dip in lemon juice. BUT I strongly recommend slicing your apples and cover them with pineapple juice. The vitamin C in the pineapple juice will help the apples stay crisp and bright and add a nice sweet flavor, verses the tartness that lemon juice leaves on the apples. Just leave your apples in pineapple juice until right before serving with the peanut butter dip.
