Creamy Peanut Butter Dip - Win

If your kiddos are like my Munchkin healthy snacks and protein can be hit and miss. Sometimes he'll eat LOADS of chicken and fish and yogurt, and some days he won't touch a bite and reverts to a carbohaulic. Sound familiar?
We're having a quite day in today (yay waking up to toddler-vomit) and I was searching Pinterest for an light and easy snack that would be easy on tummies (and waistlines) :D Enter recipe for Creamy Peanut Butter Dip!

Now when I made this I totally winged it - no recipe in front of me, only knowledge of ingredients. The recipe below is what I used, but the original link with actual recipe is below

2-3 tbsp nut butter (I used almond butter)
3-4 tbsp low fat plain greek yogurt
1/4 tsp honey
dash of cinnamon
Mix ingredients
Slice up various fruit (we used Granny Smith apples), dip, and enjoy!

Whole think took about 3 minutes to create.

Now if you search for this recipe it says it makes multiple portions. Unless you're like me and totally end up loving this dip and could eat it right out of the bowl with a spoon. So maybe divide it up if you're watching calories.
Overall - definite win! Really tasty and light, but full of protein (yay Greek yogurt!). This would work for snacks or a desert as well. Munchkin didn't try any (see previous comment about iffy-tummy today) but I have some left over and I'll report back if he ever gets around to trying some.

Overall a great quick recipe!
