This clean eating peanut butter fruit dip rocks!!

I’m getting more and more ideas for recipes these days from Pinterest.com. It’s amazing what you can find on that web site. I would almost equate it with Google, only far more addictive!

Anyhoo, I found a recipe on Pinterest for Peanut Butter Fruit Dip. There was almost nothing clean about it, but the concept certainly sparked my interest. So I gave it a shot.

A close up shot of this Clean Eating Peanut Butter Fruit Dip in a white bowl. Only half the bowl is shown in the upper right hand corner. The bowl is surrounded by strawberries and apple slices.

I think this may quite possibly be Mini Chef’s favorite recipe so far of all the recipes I’ve made for him. He absolutely adores it and it’s such a great way to get some healthy nutrition into that growing body of his. And yes, I thought it was pretty tasty myself. In fact, it’s just as addictive as the web site I found the idea on!

It’s a wonderful dip to pack for lunch with some fruit or crackers or it can be used for dessert!

Note, I’ve got a chocolate version coming up in a few days that makes for a pretty convincing clean version of cake frosting! Delish!

    did you use plain Greek yogurt or vanilla? I guessing probably plain, but thought i’d double check. this sounds wonderful! can’t wait to try it

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Lewsjewelry – I used plain.

  2. This looks delicious! did you use whole flax seeds or ground flax meal? If you used seeds, do you think it would work with flax meal?

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Becca – I used whole. I don’t recommend the flax meal in this recipe. Just be sure to chew them!

  3. Shaina Brooks says:

    I’ve done a dip similar to this, and also made variations with maple syrup for pancakes. A lot of times I put a banana in the dip for extra fruit goodness!

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Shaina – Oh yum!

  4. Have you ever thought to use pb2 in recipes?? It’s dehydrated peanut butter! 2 tbsp is only 35 calories!! It’s amazing in shakes and other things without the fat and a fraction of the calories. Some whole foods have it or I find it on amazon…

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Courtney – PB2 is not clean. Last time I checked, it had added sugar.

  5. I have actually made this just using the yogurt (using the vanilla flavored greek yogurt) and peanut butter…. It is wonderful.. I am going to try this doing it this way, and using Agave instead of honey!!

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Shannon – I hope you enjoy it!

  6. graciouspantry says:

    Emjayy41 – Yes, exactly.

  7. Hi Tiffany! I have to tell you, I just started receiving the Gracious Pantry emails and I was so excited when I saw peanut butter in today’s title 🙂 It is my absolute favorite; I’ll eat it alone or mixed/baked into just about anything! It’s a bit of a weakness, but I’ve lost 75+ pounds over 3 years and I just discovered your site. Your recipes are wonderful and healthy and I’m sure they’ll help me get thru this last little plateau to my ultimate goal!

    Thank you for such a great site with such great recipes and suggestions and I can’t wait to try today’s delicious-looking dip!

    All the best,
    Alaina 🙂

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Alaina – Thank you so much! Congrats on the weight loss! What an amazing accomplishment!

  8. Christina Hunt says:

    I love eating my fruit with almond butter or hummus. I like your taco hummus recipe. Have you ever made chocolate hummus? That’s really good if you crave the sweet. I also love to serve my fruit in a bowl with 1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese or greek yogurt and a tablespoon of flax, chia seeds, cocoa nibs, or chopped pecans and a drizzle of honey. yum!

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Christina – Oh wow! I may have to do a week long Dip Recipe Bonanza! lol

  9. Sbroverman says:

    Tiffany – this recipe is delicious!! I just made a batch of it and look forward to eating it with some cut up apples. I used chia seeds in my dip since I don’t have flax seeds. Thank you for posting such a great recipe!

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Sbroverman – Glad you enjoyed it!

  10. Richard Liley says:

    I’ve been making a similar dip and love it! I like fruit as is or diced, frozen, and then mixed with cinnamon, overnight oats, and almonds in milk or yogurt….it’s great for the warm temps.

    Have you used Peanut Flour sold by Byrd Mill? I buy it by the 5lb bag and use it for mixing into plain Greek yogurt with a bit of stevia for a dip or spread. Plus, unlike PB2, this is nothing but ground peanuts….so it’s Clean Eating I’d say!!

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Richard – Really? The last time I read the ingredient list on PB2 it has added sugar. Have they changed?

  11. graciouspantry says:

    Shlonda – Glad you enjoyed it!

  12. graciouspantry says:

    MLea – Sure!

  13. graciouspantry says:

    Missie – I have more dip recipes coming this summer. Have you checked my “Spreads & Dips” section?

  14. graciouspantry says:

    Missie – Wonderful!

  15. graciouspantry says:

    Ladeemedik – Fantastic! Welcome to my blog. I hope you enjoy the recipes!

  16. graciouspantry says:

    Bette – Yes.

  17. graciouspantry says:

    Sandra – It all depends on the ingredient list. Low fat cottage cheese, for example, has less salt and sugar than non-fat and less fat overall than regular.

    Christine – Yummy breakfast!

  23. graciouspantry says:

    Christine – Wonderful! Glad you like it! Just remember to enjoy it in moderation. There’s a lot of peanut butter in there…

  24. Michelle Schuman says:

    I was reading the posts and tonight I made this but in half size. I added a little more yogurt than peanut butter and holy cow creamy yummy goodieness! I ate “a lot” to make sure it was perfect and then put the remainder in the fridge. It is going to be really difficult to not sit and eat this by itself. Do you think it would be good with strawberries? I have a work pot luck and I would love to make this with strawberries. Apples would be good also but I’d have to cut and eat them before they turn brown. Thank you Tiffany for this amazingly yummy recipe.

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Glad you enjoyed it! This should go well with almost any fruit. Strawberries would be great!

  25. Crazylegs2004 says:

    is there anything i could sub for the flax/chia seeds? like oats maybe? or would it still work if I just omitted them?

    1. graciouspantry says:

      You can omit them.

  26. Skittlez822001 says:

    What kind of peanut butter do you recommend?

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Skittlez – Any peanut butter that only has peanuts in the ingredient list. I get the Trader Joe’s brand.

    DELICIOUS!!!! Especially with strawberries, but also had it with apples & celery!

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Awesome! Glad you enjoyed it!

  29. lovechild says:

    I am new at this, so i have been going through and pinning what recipes I want to try, and im glad i found this one cant wait to try it. Btw I love your site and all the effort you put in it. Thank you

    1. graciouspantry says:

      My pleasure! I hope you’ll enjoy it!

  30. What about using almond milk and almond butter? can’t use much dairy but can tolerate yogurt. I’m so looking forward to making this! I try at least one recipe a week and right now I’m up to the three 🙂 any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!!!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Sure! That would probably work just fine. Enjoy!

  31. Jen @TheFitHousewife says:

    Yum, this sounds delicious! I love the addition of chia 🙂

  32. Whitney Bethel says:

    How long is something like this good?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Not long. Maybe 1-3 days. Not that it goes bad that fast, it just looses something the longer it sits.

  33. Can you recommend a clean peanut butter?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Tara – I get mine at Trader Joe’s. But I believe the Adam’s brand is a more popular brand and it’s sold in many stores.

  34. lovingthespice says:

    I’m confused, you have non-fat greek yogurt, and non-fat milk in this recipe. But on your “what is clean eating” page, you state that whole fat is best and the less the fat the more processed. What am I missing? I only by the full fat greek yogurt and grass-fed whole milk. I’m assuming that will work too for this recipe, right?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Lovingthespice – You are correct. Some of my earlier recipes call for low fat products because at the time, I didn’t know any better. This blog evolves and changes as I do. I try to fix them when people point it out, so I will fix this one as well. Thanks!

  35. Yummmm!!! 🙂 Eating some with apples now. I left out the seeds since I did not have any on hand.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Julie – I’m so glad you like it! 😀

  36. I found this on Pinterest and made it today with my girls after school. Delicious! We used 2% plain greek yogurt and whole milk (it’s what we had) and omitted the chia/flax since we don’t have them. Also, we didn’t measure the milk, just poured in a little at a time until we had the consistency we wanted. After eating about half the bowl with apple slices, we added some cinnamon and decided it would be good with celery, too. YUM!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      MP – I’m so glad you enjoyed it! 🙂

  37. Do you use flaxseed for flavor or added nutrition?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Lisa – Mostly for nutrition. It doesn’t really add any flavor.
