3 Ways to increase protein and decrease fat for peanut butter dip
- Using Greek Yogurt as a base for a variety of fruit dips is a great way to keep the calories low, and the protein high!
- Using peanut butter powder is a great way to keep the calories low as well as the fat. Normally when you would add peanut butter to make a dip, the fat and calories go up, because peanut butter is so nutrient dense. However, with the peanut butter powder, you can get the delicious taste of peanut butter, but they’ve done a great job removing the fat. This is the peanut butter powder I get from Amazon.
- And finally, a tiny amount of honey gives the sweet flavor for this dip, without adding any fat at all. Honey is a natural sweetener that comes with some essential minerals, and a great addition to any healthy diet.
