Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Dip

Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Dip with Apples

Today's Tidbit:    Is there anything better than being able to quickly pull together a yummy and healthy dessert with things you already have in your kitchen?  I don't think so!  I'm not much of a baker, so I love having something easy to enjoy when I'm pinched for time and craving a sweet (and healthy) treat.  

Meet my new fav Potassium, Protein and Antioxidant filled Dessert:  Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Dip!  It resembles one of my favorite Halloween goodies:  Peanut Butter Cups, but is a whole lot healthier!  And, it has only 3 ingredients and comes together in about a minute.   

Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Dip Recipe:

Mash an overripe Banana in a bowl and mix in 1-2 tbsp of Natural Peanut Butter and 1-2 tbsp Organic Chocolate Syrup (depending on how Peanut Buttery or Chocolatey you like it).  Slice up some Apples or Pears for dipping, or even some Strawberries....delish!

I'd love to be able to take full credit for this concoction, but the truth is that I got inspired while flipping through Jessica Seinfeld's cookbook:  Deceptively Delicious.  Her book is totally worth a scan; there are loads of interesting and healthy ideas for feeding kids and adults alike! 

In the meantime, whip up this super delicious and healthy Dip.  And just in case you are one of the Peanut Butter naysayers out there, check out this Prevention Article and take a minute to reconsider!

The Story of What Amy Ate Today:
Last year I created the What Amy Ate Today blog to share my personal story of losing over 40 pounds by making simple healthy changes to the way I was eating.  I wanted to show the real life picture of what my daily food choices looked like by simply posting every single thing that I ate every single day; which I did for 9 straight months!  

I wanted to show that it is possible to lose weight and be healthy without being on a diet and without starving or depriving yourself of anything.  I make healthy choices whenever I can, but I am a normal person living a real life and I want to enjoy it, so I indulge in special treats regularly too.   
It has been a great journey for me, further motivating me to seek out new foods, new recipes and new ways to prepare and eat more healthily and get more Vitamins and Nutrients (and Energy!)  into my day.   I look forward to continuing this journey by highlighting special recipes, new foods and/ or preparations that I discover or create, alongside any helpful Health information or news that I come across through the above "Today's Tidbit".  Thanks for joining me on my journey to better health and better living!

It all started on May 1, 2012, check out a sample post here:  One Day Last July...
