Any women’s health and fitness mag will tell you, the best pre- or post-workout snack features healthy carbs and protein. A favorite go-to is the apple-peanut butter combo, but your refueling snack need not be so simple or boring.
So sandwich it!
And make the spread a little fluffier and sweetener.
1 apple, sliced into large rounds
1 T all-natural, salt- and sugar-free nut butter
1 T organic vanilla yogurt
toppings of your choice (granola, dried fruit, coconut shreds, etc.)
Simply lay out the apple rounds and spread with the nut butter spread, which is just ingredients 2-4 mixed into a smooth, fluffy spread. Top however you like!
Perhaps that’s why I’m sort of partial to this recipe. It could also be the fact that the spread also makes a delicious dip for a group!
To make enough dip for a group, combine 1 cup peanut butter with 1 cup yogurt and 2 T cinnamon. Chill and serve with apples, pears, or banana slices.
