Peanut Butter Yogurt
I make a lot of different flavored yogurts because my oldest child woke up one morning and decided he doesn't like plain yogurt anymore (although I think he's slowly coming back around again).
So far I've shared these easy blended yogurt recipes that are made with just 3-4 simple ingredients.
And now this peanut butter yogurt!
While it's delicious with just peanut butter and yogurt, there are endless ways to elevate this flavored yogurt. You can add some honey or maple syrup to sweeten it up, warm spices like cinnamon, fruit, or even grated carrots (our personal favorite!).
Double the recipe and enjoy as a quick, healthy breakfast or snack throughout the week with different toppings for variety.
You can even pack for school snack or lunch box.
- Plain Greek yogurt - I recommend using whole milk Greek yogurt (4% or 5%) especially for young kids, as fat is essential for optimal brain development. You can also use regular yogurt. The only difference is the thickness. Feel free to swap with any dairy-free alternative, if needed.
- Natural peanut butter - use creamy or crunchy, depending on your preference.
- Vanilla extract (optional) - adds a subtle sweetness and depth of flavor
- Finely grated carrots (optional) - I know this may sound strange BUT I highly encourage you to give it a try! The carrots add texture and sweetness and is an easy way to get more vegetables into your child's diet.

- An alternative to peanut butter? Use almond butter or any nut butter or seed butter for an allergy-friendly option
- Instead of using plain yogurt, try with flavored yogurt.
- Cinnamon, nutmeg, or pumpkin pie spice - adds warmth
- Desire a sweet yogurt? add some honey (avoid for under 1), pure maple syrup, or date syrup for a no added sugar alternative.
- You can also enjoy as a peanut butter yogurt dip with your favorite fruits, like apple slices and strawberries, or graham crackers.
You can enjoy this peanut butter yogurt on its own or take it up a notch with any of these add-ins.
As long as I switch up the toppings, my kids don't mind eating this peanut butter yogurt bowl everyday.
