Chocolate Peanut Butter Fruit Dip - The Lemon Bowl

Confession: I could eat chocolate peanut butter ice cream every day of my life. There is just something about that sweet and salty magical flavor combo that I can't get enough of! Since summer is right around the corner and so is my bathing suit, I decided to create a healthy, protein-packed snack that hits all of those same flavor notes, without any of the guilt.

In honor of National Dairy Month, my dear friends at the American Dairy Association Mideast asked me to create this nutritious dairy-packed snack. As a busy mama of two who also happens to be nursing, we go through a lot of dairy in our house every week.

Frequently asked questions:

Why is it important to have dairy?

Protein Packed: Cow's milk has 8 grams of protein per serving - far higher than other types of milk including almond milk which only has 1 gram.
Nutrient Packed: Milk is the single greatest source of three of the four nutrients lacking in the American diet: calcium, vitamin D and potassium.
Good Source of Probiotics: Yogurt is a natural source of probiotics, naturally occurring organisms that can improve your health. Probiotics have been shown to improve digestive health, immune function and more.

  1. What a great idea! I would do this with plain 0% Greek yogurt and PB2, since that's what I would have handy, and add [probably] 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. I like Greek yogurt for the protein levels. This will probably appear as a snack very soon in my house… When I first saw the photo in the email, I almost didn't check the recipe, but I'm glad I did. :-)
