We love that peanut butter can work in every dish: from breakfast to dinner, sweet or savory, and it’s even something special you can give to the pups in your life! For this reason, we have so many different healthy recipes with peanut butter to recommend. Here are some of our most favorite:  


Peanut Butter Smoothies: 

Chocolate-Peanut Butter-Banana Smoothie 

This nutritious and delicious treat includes milk, Cabot Lowfat Vanilla Bean Greek Yogurt, chocolate syrup, peanut butter and banana. Bonus: each sip packs potassium and protein! 

Nutty Monkey Protein Smoothie  

This one’s for the kids: Blend up peanut butter, honey and banana for a healthy before-school breakfast for your crew. They’ll go bananas for it!  

Butter Me Up Smoothie 

Featuring blackberries and Cabot’s Lowfat Greek Yogurt, this recipe calls for almond butter, but we say: swap in peanut butter! It also makes just one serving, so if anyone else is around, you’re gonna wanna increase the recipe so you can all enjoy it. 

PB & J Smoothie 

It doesn’t get much better than this: the perfect combo, the match made in heaven. Peanut butter and strawberry jelly meet with frozen strawberries, Cabot 2% Plain Greek-Style Yogurt and skim milk for a seriously special smoothie.   


Snack Recipes with Peanut Butter: 

Protein Cereal Bars  

The perfect grab-and-go snack, these DIY cereal bars are healthy and tasty. They also have a short ingredient list, starring peanut butter, Cabot Whey Protein Powder, honey and crispy rice cereal.  

Chocolate Chia Protein Balls  

These energy-boosting snack balls are seriously addictive! (Bet you can’t have just one…) Pitted dates, chia seeds, peanut butter, Cabot Whey Protein, rice krispies and unsweetened cocoa? It just works.  


Dinner Recipes with Peanut Butter: 

 Creamy Thai Peanut Spaghetti Squash  

Spaghetti squash ‘noodles’ are irresistible mixed with this ultra-creamy sauce made from Cabot Plain Greek Yogurt, lime and peanut butter. 

Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes  

If breakfast for dinner is your favorite type of dinner, you’ll love flipping up a stack of these flapjacks. They’re as healthy as they are delicious: made with whole wheat flour, ground flax seed, Cabot Whey Protein, bananas and peanut butter! 


Peanut Butter Dessert Recipes: 

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Chia Pudding 

This creamy dessert will impress your dinner party guests, highlighting peanut butter and Cabot Lowfat Vanilla Bean Greek Yogurt. Top with crushed peanuts to serve.  

Chocolate-Peanut Butter Whoopie Pies 

Who doesn’t love a homemade whoopie pie? These star a peanut butter and Cabot Premium Cream Cheese frosting. Back to our first question: if you didn’t love them already, you’re going to love them now. 

Healthy Fruit Dip  

Serve this three-ingredient dip with sliced fresh fruit for a light dessert. Those three ingredients? Honey, peanut butter and Cabot Plain Greek Yogurt. 


Peanut Butter Treats for Furry Friends: 

Frozen Puppy Pops 

Make these peanut butter “cupcakes” for your pooch’s birthday, and garnish with a bone-shaped dog treat to create a handle for easy serving. 

Doggie Pupcakes with Greek Yogurt-Peanut Butter Frosting  

Another special-occasion treat for your pup, the frosting on these ‘cakes is simply delicious (you’ll want to sneak a lick!): creamy peanut butter plus Cabot Plain Greek Yogurt 

Apple & Cheddar Pupcakes  

Cabot Cheddar Cheese, minced apple, eggs and oats go into these cakes. The recipe doesn’t call for peanut butter, but we suggest spreading on a scoop like frosting for Fido.
