It’s the season for eating apples, and one of my favorite ways to eat them is with peanut butter. It’s a great combination of flavors and it adds protein to a healthy sweet snack. This recipe just jazzes up the peanut butter a little. I came up with it when recently I wanted to make a fruit dip as a treat for the kids. I have several fruit dip recipes that I have enjoyed over the years, but when I looked at them I realized they all contained dairy. Since I wanted to eat this too, I decided to try using the MimicCreme I had in my refrigerator.
I really liked the result. The MimicCreme lightens the dip making it fluffier than straight peanut butter. The cinnamon adds a nice flavor, but could be omitted. I used 1 teaspoon and thought it was good, but one of my kids said he would prefer it with less. So I leave that up to you. Add a little and taste it, then add some more if it needs it. I used sweetened peanut butter in this. If you use a natural unsweetened type, you may want to add a little sweetener. It’s a pretty simple and flexible recipe. See what works for you.
Dairy-Free Peanut Butter Fruit Dip
- 1/2 c. peanut butter (I used sweetened)
- 1/2 c. MimicCreme
- 1/2 – 1 tsp. cinnamon
Place the ingredients in a bowl and beat them together with an electric mixer (I used a hand mixer) for a couple of minutes until well combined and fluffy. Serve with apples or fruit of choice.
