The benefits

Greek yogurt: The protein in Greek yogurt helps fill you up, builds muscle, and repairs tissue. The probiotics (healthy bacteria) help move your digestion system along. The Vitamin B12 in it also gives you energy assist in healthy brain function.

Peanut butter: Like yogurt, peanut butter is a power house for protein. Make sure you don’t exceed 2 tablespoons of it however- it’s high in saturated fat so consume with caution.

Maple syrup: To be honest… there’s not much nutritional value. But it tastes good and makes life sweeter.

So there you have it, a simple and delicious dip to combat cravings at any time of the day. Snack on!
