You’ve found the secret to making the best tasting peanut butter dip and it lies in just one easy ingredient — honey.

But it’s a secret, so go on making this fabulous dip for your family and friends, but let’s keep that tip to yourself!

If you want a peanut butter apple dip that just tastes like peanut butter, you’re in the wrong place. This dip uses the sweetness of honey and the flavors of cinnamon and vanilla to bring fruit a whole new flavor.

Another secret? It’s made with Greek yogurt for a healthier option when dipping your favorite fruits — but it tastes so rich and creamy that no one would know!

Tips for Apple Peanut Butter Dip

  • Use plain, unsweetened Greek yogurt. The addition of honey will give this nutty dipping sauce all the sweetness it needs.
  • Use a hand mixer or whisk to combine the ingredients. This will make the mixing quick and easy!
  • Add honey to taste, using more or less to reach your desired level of sweetness.
  • Serve at room temperature for best results. No need to chill if serving immediately.

Variations to Peanut Butter Fruit Dip

  • Sweeten your dip with powdered sugar or maple syrup instead of honey.
  • Use fresh-ground or all-natural peanut butter instead of creamy peanut butter. This will result in a slightly softer but equally delicious dip!
  • Create a fluffier texture by swapping the Greek yogurt with Cool Whip! Add it last and fold it in by hand so it doesn’t deflate.
  • Make a healthy peanut butter dip with reduced sugar by skipping the honey and vanilla. A 3 ingredient peanut butter dip will be equally satisfying but not too sweet.
  • Add some mix-ins to personalize the recipe to your liking. Cocoa powder changes the flavor, chopped nuts add some crunch, and chocolate chips do both!

Does Peanut Butter Dip Need to be Refrigerated?

Yes. Apple dip with peanut butter will last for up to three days in the refrigerator, so you can prepare it in advance and snack on it for a few days. This recipe yields about 2 cups.

Be sure to store your dip in an airtight container to keep it fresh.

Can I Freeze Peanut Butter Dip?

I do not recommend freezing your dip, as this may affect the texture once thawed.

Can I Make Peanut Butter Yogurt Dip with Regular Yogurt?

Greek yogurt is the best type of yogurt to use for this recipe. It has a thicker consistency than regular yogurt and will help your dip achieve a perfect creamy texture.

For best results, I recommend going with plain and unsweetened yogurt.

Is It Better to Use Natural Peanut Butter or Regular Peanut Butter?

Regular peanut butter works best in this recipe because of the no stir creamy texture, but you can certainly use natural peanut butter if you prefer.

Your peanut butter dip for apples will have a softer texture if you use natural nut butter since natural is a bit runnier than regular. It’s also a slightly healthier option!

What to Serve with Peanut Butter Yogurt Dip

Apples and peanut butter are an unmatched combination –– sweet, nutty, soft, and crunchy. 

While plain apple slices will go well with peanut butter yogurt dip, there are plenty of easy apple recipes that you can pair with. 

Try this apple peanut butter dip with air fryer apple slices, crispy apple chips, baked apples, or cinnamon apple fritters.

It also tastes incredible as a spread on air fryer toast or as a dip for pretzels and graham crackers. The soft texture of the dip will complement these crunchy treats perfectly!
