Happy 4th of July! After a year in quarantine from the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, we have missed our family gatherings. Our home state of Vermont “returned to normal” with our guidelines earlier this spring and we are looking forward to getting back to our tradition of enjoying 4th of July weekend with family. Pot-lucks are the style of our shindigs as we enjoy swimming in the pool, playing cornhole and volleyball, and hand-churning ice cream (we love the weekends when we get to feel like kids again!)
It’s also no secret that part of the Stewart Maple family is notorious for running late…all the time. So, our secret to a showing up fashionably late with a dish to share that has folks raving is – keeping the ingredients list small! This FOUR INGREDIENT recipe has always been a crowd pleaser (it was one of our most popular recipes to share on facebook last summer!) because it’s popular with kids and grown-ups alike. Maple Peanut Butter fruit dip pairs perfectly with any fruit you have in the kitchen, and is equally as satisfying with graham crackers, pretzels, or a spoon.
So, don’t feel rushed and whip up this great dip and enjoy your friends and family. Enjoy!
• 1 1/2 c vanilla greek yogurt
• 1/2 c natural creamy or crunchy peanut butter (or any nut butter)
• 1/4 c Stewart’s Maple Syrup
• 1/4 tsp cinnamon
• In the bowl of your stand-mixer (or in a large bowl), combine all ingredients.
• Whip/whisk together until you have a smooth consistency.
• Refrigerate for 20 minutes or serve immediately if you’re like us and gotta get going!
• Serve with graham crackers and your favorite fresh fruit. I love this with green apples, strawberries and cantaloupe.
• Substitute greek yogurt with your favorite yogurt.
• Substitute maple syrup with honey or granulated maple sugar.
• This is such an easy dish to throw together; kid friendly (minus those with nut allergies) and well liked by all! Bring this to your next cookout or serve at your next family gathering. It is sure to be a hit!
