Bits of Bliss: Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt Dip

image

If you are anything like my family, peanut butter just isn’t a household staple, it’s a food addiction. So when I found this recipe on Pinterest, it was a no brainer that we had to test it out.

I deviated from the original recipe a little, and made my own version with a few ingredients that I had on hand. Now we are in peanut butter heaven, and I just had to share! It was SO easy to make, and it’s such a nice afternoon (or after school) sweet treat to hold you over before dinner.

(Plus there is the added bonus that it is a “gentle on the waistline” snack!)


 Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt Dip

Ingredients:

  • Appx. 8 Tbl Vanilla Greek Yogurt
  • 1 Tbl creamy Peanut Butter
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 apple cored and sliced, for serving

Directions:

Mix first 3 ingredients together until creamy and smooth. Serve with sliced apples and dip away. Enjoy!

Not only did my 3 year old devour his own little bowl, he even snuck in and accosted my bowl as well! It was very satisfying watching him swirl and munch on his apple slices so contently that I didn’t even mind sharing!

If you try it out, let me know what you think! Do you have any delicious afternoon snacks or sweet treats that you love? I’d love to hear all about it!

Bits of Bliss: Luxurious Brown Sugar Body Scrub

Oh mama, I have a feeling that you are going to want to hug me (or at least give me a high five) after I share this recipe for my Luxurious Brown Sugar Body Scrub with you!

So, I know that a DIY brown sugar body scrub is definitely not a groundbreaking discovery by any means, but what I found with this scrub is that my skin still feels super soft the next day after using it. I never had that with other scrubs that I have used. The very best thing about this recipe is that I’m sure you have all of these 5 (yep only 5!) ingredients on hand.

1/4 C Coconut or Almond Oil (I used almond)
1/2 C Dark Brown Sugar
1/4 C Organic Pure Cane Sugar
1/4-1/2 TBL Vanilla Extract
Appx. 50 drops of Absolute Rose Essential Oil -optional- (or whatever essential oil pleases you) I really wanted a prevalent rose smell, so I used a lot. Just use as little or as much as you desire. I got my bottle at Whole Foods for $5.99.

That’s it! I know it sounds more like we are going to bake something, but not this time my friends!


I started off by making a small amount to see if I liked my concoction, and I totally wish I had made more! I’ve already used it all up! So if you want to, please double or triple the amounts. I am sure you will want to share this amazing and luxurious scrub with all your besties after you try it out! So double up your batch, get a pack of Mason Jars, and some pretty ribbon or raffia, and voila! A great hostess/birthday/Christmas/just because I love you gift!

I decided on using Rose Absolute oil for this scrub because I thought it would give a nice contrast to the extra strong vanilla scent that comes from the vanilla extract, and it gave it that sexy luxurious scent I was looking for. Plus, I just didn’t want to smell like a sugar cookie. You should definitely play around with other scents that you love with this recipe! Next time I may omit the vanilla and use Orange extract and lavender essential oil for a fresh citrus scrub. This was such a treat for me, I hope that you will find it as luxurious and decadent as I have!


Do you have a DIY sugar scrub that you adore? I’d love for you share!

Until next time…
