Continuing with our Simple BBQ menu, today we’re moving on to fruit side dishes. Fruit is pretty much my favorite food ever.
Okay, I just love food. But fruit is really high on the list.
I love a fruit tray with a great dip. Homemade whipped cream is my go-to fruit dip. I mean really, is there anything better than ripe strawberries with fresh whipped cream? I think not.
I also love the super simple dip that is just yogurt and whipped cream mixed in whatever portions give you exactly the flavor you like.
I have one more super simple dip that is a regular on my fruit tray. In fact, my kiddos know I love it so much, they made it for my Mother’s Day breakfast. They know me so well. yum
This one was inspired by a recipe from Six Sisters Stuff, but I tweaked it a bit and I love it even more now. It’s like taking your favorite PB & J and turning it into dessert.
PB & Y Fruit Dip
- 1 part peanut butter
- 2 parts strawberry yogurt
Mix. Serve with fruit. Eat. Seriously, that’s all there is to it.
You can make as much or as little as you want. Measure out your peanut butter and then use twice as much yogurt. If you have really healthy peanut butter or yogurt with no sugar, you may need to add a little something for sweetness. I used sugary peanut butter and yogurt, so it’s plenty sweet just like this. And so, so yummy.
I love it best on bananas and strawberries, but try it on your favorite fruit and see how you like it!
