Phyllis' Almond Butter & Yogurt Protein Dip

Lazy days poolside or hectic days deskside both benefit from a pure snack that's easy to whip up.  Our much loved cousin Phyllis shared her recipe for Almond Butter & Yogurt Protein Dip that will carry you through the afternoon.

Be sure to use plain yogurt, not flavored or even vanilla, to keep this dip really pure.  If you want to add a drop of vanilla extract, that's fine with us.

Phyllis' Almond Butter & Yogurt Protein Dip
Ingredients
Yield: a little over 1 cup

1 cup plain yogurt
2 tablespoons almond butter
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
optional: milk to thin and stevia or honey for extra sweetness

Method
  1. Combine yogurt and almond butter in a small bowl.  Use a fork or small whisk to combine yogurt and almond butter.
  2. Add in cinnamon.  If the dip is very thick, add a little milk - up to a tablespoon-- to thin dip to your desired consistency.
  3. Taste and add in a small amount of honey or stevia to sweeten.
  4. Serve with slices of apple, banana even graham crackers.
Thanks Phyllis!
