Healthy Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake Dip

Healthy Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake Dip topped with chopped peanut butter cups in a white bowl surrounded by pretzels and fruit.

This healthy and indulgent Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake Dip made with just a few simple, real-food ingredients is a sweet and easy dessert dip for sharing with friends! (gluten-free, vegetarian)

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter (made with just peanuts and salt)
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder (I use dark cocoa powder)
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch fine sea salt
  • 1/2 cup mini peanut butter cups, roughly chopped (I like dark chocolate peanut butter cups)
  • For serving: fruit, pretzels, graham crackers, etc.

Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients except for peanut butter cups in a blender (like a Vitamix) or food processor (like this one). Blend until smooth and fluffy, scraping down the sides as needed with a silicone spatula (like these).
  2. Gently stir in most of the peanut butter cups, reserving a few for garnish.
  3. Spoon dip into a serving dish and sprinkle with remaining peanut butter cups. Serve with fresh fruit, pretzels, or cookies/crackers of choice.
  4. If you are not serving immediately, store dip in the refrigerator in an airtight container until ready to serve.

Notes

  • Dip may take a few minutes to get completely smooth. Be patient, and stop to scrape down the sides as necessary.
  • Add milk as needed to achieve a thinner consistency.
  • This dessert dip can be made up to two days ahead. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  • Use stevia-sweetened peanut butter cups, such as Lily's Sweets, for a completely refined sugar-free recipe.
