Peanut butter cravings are pretty common here in the Awakuni household, well commonly expressed by me at least… The husband recognizes my need by lovingly budgeting for copious jars of peanut butter… and the dog supports the cravings, and stands by my side with encouraging, expectant eyes.
So, when a craving hits, nobody is alarmed, everybody is prepared.
The turmoil begins in the decision for just how the peanut butter will be prepared and consumed. There are so many choices… like:
- by the spoonful
- in a shake
- on a sandwich
- with some fruit
- on celery
- maybe baked in something
- balanced with honey 😉
This afternoon I ruled out the more involved choices and I took a risk. I decided to ex-nay the bread and combine peanut butter and strawberry jelly with some greek yogurt. I didn’t want a full blown out sandwich and I didn’t feel like getting out the blender and making a big mess.
It was delicious! Creamy, cold, peanut butter and jelly goodness.
Peanut Butter and Jelly Greek Yogurt
- 6 Oz Greek Yogurt
- 1 Tbls Natural Peanut Butter
- 1 Tbls Suger Free Strawberry Jelly
- OPTIONAL: granola, nuts, chocolate chips, oats etc. (make it your own)
- Place everything in a bowl.
Let me tell you it hit the spot! Plus the greek yogurt provided some extra protein!
