Made with only 4 ingredients, this creamy Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt Fruit Dip is the most delicious way to dunk your apples, strawberries and graham crackers! Make-ahead friendly for snack, breakfast or dessert during the week!
So many veggie dips out there, how about some fruit dip?! I could seriously take down two whole apples and a pint of strawberries with this stuff. It’s that good.
This recipe is an expanded and further tested version of the Peanut Butter Yogurt Dip I first shared in this PB Snack Box Meal Prep Ideas post. That was published almost a year ago, and I have not stopped thinking about this dip.
I did a little more testing to figure out how to make it even better, and here we are. SO easy – make a double or triple batch and serve it to a crowd. Or stick with a single batch for just you 🥰
Total Time: 5 minutes
Method: No Heat
Prep: Make-Ahead Friendly
What are the ingredients in this Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt Fruit Dip?
The ingredients in this dip are simple, basic items you should be able to find at your local grocery store – I’ll also suggest some easy swaps! Here’s what I used in this Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt Fruit Dip:
- plain Greek yogurt – My favorite brand is Fage, but you can use any brand of yogurt. To keep things simple and make the dip extra thick, I opt for plain Greek yogurt, but you can use regular yogurt if that’s all you have. This will give the dip a slightly thinner consistency but it will still be delicious.
- natural creamy salted peanut butter – I get my natural PB (only peanuts and salt as the ingredients) at Costco and it’s the best PB for the best price. I would avoid using PB with added sugar because it will make the dip really sweet and add a lot of unnecessary ingredients.
- pure maple syrup – Either pure maple syrup or honey will work for this recipe. You can always start with 2 tablespoons and taste to see if you want to add more sweetener.
- vanilla extract – This is a vital flavoring ingredient! Adding vanilla gives this dip a real depth of flavor. We specifically tested this side by side without vanilla, and found it much better with.
- for dipping: sliced apples, bananas, strawberries, pretzels, graham crackers, cinnamon pita chips, carrot sticks – whatever you have on hand! Also, since a majority of this dip is Greek yogurt, it’s totally fine to just eat it with a spoon.
How do you make this Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt Fruit Dip?
This is an easy one! You really do just add everything to a mixing bowl and stir until fully combined. The fruit dip is ready to eat right when you make it, but it will also thicken a bit more as it chills in the fridge.
You can store it all together in one container, or portion out into individual containers for the week.
Can I use regular vanilla yogurt instead of Greek yogurt?
Yes, this dip would still be delicious with other kinds of yogurt, but I have not tested them all. My preference for the thickest and most delicious dip is using Greek yogurt.
If you do use vanilla yogurt, it may not be necessary to add the vanilla extract. Most vanilla yogurt is already sweetened, so taste first before adding maple syrup.
What can I use instead of peanut butter?
I’m confident this dip would be delicious with most kinds of nut butters, as well as sunflower seed butter. If you end up using a different kind of nut butter, let me know in the comments which one you used and how it turned out.

Here are some things I noticed while testing this Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt Fruit Dip recipe:

Is this recipe freezer-friendly?
I have not yet tested if this recipe is freezer-friendly. This dip is so delicious, we have never had leftovers that needed to be frozen!
