NOTE: The following giveaway is open to Canadians only.
Sometimes, it happens in the middle of a morning conference call. Often, it’s when I’m packing the kids off to school. And once in a while, it suddenly hits me when I’m still in bed.
The full-forced craving for this healthy, protein-packed Peanut Butter Ricotta Crème, made with Kraft All Natural Smooth Peanut Butter.
The fluffy texture contrasts nicely with crisp toast or a dense, chewy bagel. And, it’s completely versatile: you can use the crème as a dip for apple slices (my boys love to enjoy it this way), dolloped over blueberry pancakes or as a better-for-you icing for pound cake. The best part? It’s oh-so-easy to make, and you control the sweetness.
1 cup light ricotta cheese
1/4 cup Kraft All Natural Smooth Peanut Butter
2 tablespoons honey, plus extra for drizzling, if desired
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
Place all ingredients in food processor; process until smooth. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve (up to 7 days).
It’s time to think outside the jar or spread and start upgrading! Even though I enjoyed this crème with a bagel for breakfast (you could call me a “traditionalist”), I’m looking forward to snack time, when I’ll be dipping tart apple slices into this cloud of peanut-y perfection. Craving factor: full effect.
In fact, one jar of Kraft All Natural Smooth Peanut Butter offers endless inspiration! (Have you checked out my recipe for Peanut Butter Granola?) And, since it’s a family favourite, you’ll always have a reason to Make together. Stick together.
