    Sliced Apples with Peanut Butter Yogurt Dip

    So I saw something similar to this on Pinterest and I thought I'd give it a go. Forgive me for the iPhone photo, this was literally a photo of my snack yesterday. It was so delicious that I had to share and I was not in the mood to dirty up another bowl and plate for the sake of a colorful more appealing photo. So sue me. Anyway, apples and peanut butter are a staple snack for any healthy fit girl. This recipe for Peanut Butter Yogurt Dip puts a spin on the classic. Be forewarned, I did not measure anything exactly, just kinda took a spoon and eyeballed a good sized serving - enough to dip my entire plate of apple slices in. I will do my best to give you a guesstimate that ends up just as yummy as mine did.
