This peanut butter jelly yogurt is exactly what it sounds like – a snack made with peanut butter, jelly and yogurt! It doesn’t get any easier than mixing the three together in a bowl and eating on its own or on top of rice cakes, waffles or oatmeal!
Ingredients & substitutions
- Peanut butter: Use creamy peanut butter for a smooth texture. But you can definitely use crunchy if you prefer that.
- Jelly: Strawberry jam and peanut butter work so well together. You can use other flavored jams like grape or blueberry as well.
- Yogurt: Use a full fat yogurt for the best flavor and texture. A vanilla flavored yogurt adds a nice hint of sweetness, though you can use plain.
- Other ingredients: Think about how you’ll be serving it, for example on top of rice cakes, waffles or oatmeal. Add more texture to it by adding fresh fruit and nuts.
How to make peanut butter jelly
- Stir the yogurt, peanut butter and jelly together in a bowl and enjoy! It’s as simple as that!
Tips for making the recipe
- Use full fat yogurt. Full fat yogurt contains less moisture than reduced fat varieties, so it holds well together when mixed with peanut butter and jelly without separating.
- Don’t use a natural peanut butter. The oils in natural peanut butter can separate, so it’s best to avoid this or it can end up tasting quite oily in parts.
- Customize it. Think about mixing in some protein powder into the yogurt for more protein or adding cinnamon for a warm flavor or even maple syrup to sweeten it to your taste.
- Make a big batch to use for snacking and breakfast. You can double or triple the recipe and keep the mixture together in a tupperware for up to a week. This makes it easy to add it to your breakfast or to enjoy as a quick snack.
