Peanut Fruit Dip

Tonight was Family Night and my children were desperate for a treat. What to do in a pinch that won't ruin my healthy eating streak?

Here's what I did.  Combine the following:

Natural peanut butter (I used the last few spoonfuls I had of Smucker's, use your favorite natural peanut butter)
Agave Nectar (you can use honey or I bet maple syrup would work too, just add to taste)
Few dashes cinnamon  (I used enough to add a different dimension to the flavor, but it doesn't overpower the pb and agave)
Warm water (add a tablespoon at a time, stir well, repeat until desired dipping consistency)

Serve with cut-up fruit.  We used Pink Lady apples, delicious!  My kiddos are currently watching an episode of Avatar, the Last Airbender while devouring this healthy dessert!  They're happy, and I'm happy they're eating fresh fruit and no corn syrup or white sugar. :)
