My Favorite Snack - Peanut Butter Yogurt

If you need a snack but want something that doesn't pack a bunch of empty calories, this is the thing for you. I like to have this on nights I'm craving ice cream but don't want all that fat, sugar or artificial flavorings.

It doesn't look pretty, but it tastes great!

Here's how you do it: start with one small spoonful of peanut butter (I use Earth Balance chunky) and put it in the microwave for 20-30 seconds or until it's swirlable. Add 3 big scoops of thick and creamy greek yogurt and mix together.

Now, there are a bunch of directions you can go from here, but I usually stick to just two different routes. One - add chocolate chips for a PB/Choc Yogurt snack. Or, two (as seen here) a squirt of honey and a sprinkling of sunflower seeds.

This is a decadent treat that's got protein, good fats, calcium, and a hint of sweetness. It's substantial so you'll get filled up and feel totally satisfied. You'll have no guilty regrets after enjoying this snack!
