Snack Dip

The Kid Cooks get tired of snack crackers in the afternoon. They have often already had a yogurt cup at lunch; fruit isn’t enough for growing teenagers; and we don’t want them learning to eat junk as a filler. This provides a quick dip they can make and eat that extends the fruit and remains on the healthier side. Leftovers can be refrigerated and used tomorrow.

Makes 3-4 servings


Medium mixing bowl

Fork or Rubber spatula


  • ½ banana
  • 3 Tablespoons peanut butter
  • Three ¼ cups of plain yogurt
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Mash banana in bowl.
  2. Add all other ingredients to banana in bowl.
  3. Mix completely with fork or rubber spatula.
  4. Divide into servings.
  5. Serve with fruit or graham crackers to dip.
