Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Creamy Peanut Butter Dip
I'm excited to be sharing this recipe for a lighter healthier peanut butter dip, a perfect way to celebration National Peanut Butter Lover's Day!
I ran across this recipe for creamy peanut butter dip on the WW (WeightWatchers) website recently. As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to give it a try. I love both peanut butter and hummus and this seemed like a sweet and creamy combination of the two.
To make this wholesome dip, chickpeas, peanut butter, honey, warm water and a bit of salt are combined in a food processor (affiliate link) or heavy duty blender (affiliate link), (I used my Vitamix (affiliate link)), until creamy. Then you just let it chill for a bit before spreading it onto your favorite fruits and vegetables.

Cooking Notes, Additions & Variations
Be sure to wait until this creamy peanut butter dip is cold before making any judgments. It really does need to set in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, as the recipe suggests.
While I liked the initial batch, I can't wait to do a little more experimenting with this recipe. I found the dip a little sweet for my tastes, so next time I'll add just 1 tablespoon of honey and adjust from there.
I also want to experiment with making a savory peanut butter dip and try other variations of peanut butter dip including a peanut butter yogurt dip and peanut butter pumpkin dip. Will let you know how it all turns out 🙂
I love the idea of adding a pinch of red pepper flakes for a spicier peanut butter dip.
