Apple Slices With Peanut Butter Dip

Ingredients

  • ½ cup silken tofu
  • ½ cup low-fat cottage cheese
  • 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 large apples
  • ½ cup orange juice

Materials Needed

  • Apple corer
  • Measuring cups
  • Measuring spoons
  • 2 small bowls
  • Wooden spoon
  • Cutting board
  • Small sharp knife
  • Round platter

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, thoroughly mix the tofu, cottage cheese, peanut butter, honey and vanilla extract. (If you like it really smooth, you could mix it in a blender instead.)
  2. Wash and dry the apples.
  3. On the cutting board, core the apples. Slice each apple in half and then into ¼ inch slices.
  4. Pour the orange juice into the other bowl and dip each slice of apple into the juice for a bout 1 to 2 seconds. (The juice prevents the apples from turning brown.) Place them on a paper towel.
  5. Place the bowl of dip in the middle of the platter. Arrange the apple slices around the bowl of dip and serve.

*** The recipe makes about 5 servings. Tofu is known as the "cheese of Asia" because it is a cheese-like food made from soybeans, which are very popular in Asia. Silken tofu is a creamy, custard-like product, perfect for dips.
