Are you craving something sinfully sweet, but still want to make wise choices for your waistline? Don’t worry, I’ve concocted a new go-to recipe that leaves me full, satisfies my sweet tooth and packs a protein punch! This recipe came out of desperation for something sweet one day at work. I didn’t have anything on hand that was made already, so I started perusing the eMeals test kitchen. I found plain, non-fat Greek yogurt, all natural peanut butter, honey, and some cinnamon. My hunger pangs took over, and next thing I knew, I had whipped up a new treat!
That recipe I made out of a dire need for something in my stomach, has now become a staple in my weekly diet. I enjoy this recipe for energy before a workout, in the morning for breakfast, or as a mid-afternoon snack. I play around with it as I go. Sometimes I do just the all natural peanut butter and Greek yogurt with a bit of honey and other times I omit the honey and just dump in some pumpkin pie spice. Whatever direction you take this healthy recipe in, I know you’ll love it!
I used to hate plain Greek yogurt but after learning how much added sugar there is in the pre-mixed kinds with fruit and such, I’ve decided to take the plunge and the few extra moments it takes to add in my own toppings. I really like the way this recipe cuts out the mildly sour taste in the Greek yogurt AND the fact that it’s Clean Eating friendly!
- Low fat plain greek yogurt
- all natural peanut butter
- Cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice to taste
- Honey (optional)
- Stir peanut butter into Greek yogurt.
- Add in desired toppings such as cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, or honey.
