Our partners at The Dairy Alliance are global advocates for dairy as an essential ingredient to life! While their site is full to the brim with healthy dairy recipes, this quick and in-season back-to-school snack is sure to score an afternoon A+! The recipe is easy to scale up or down depending on how many snacks you need. Just stay with a ratio of four parts yogurt to one part peanut butter.
Our Certified Farm Market locator will help you find twelve different apple orchards across the state as well as other local fruits and vegetables!

1 tablespoon creamy natural peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon honey
1 medium apple, cored and sliced into 12 wedges
Combine yogurt, peanut butter and honey in a small bowl; whisk with a fork until well blended. Serve immediately, or cover and chill until ready to use.

The Dairy Alliance is a nonprofit funded by dairy farm families of the Southeast. They work diligently with dairy farmers, retailers, schools, sports teams, health professionals, local organizations, state leaders, the media and the public to promote dairy foods and knowledge about the dairy industry. Their efforts center in nine states: Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
Dairy foods contain nine essential nutrients that are important for building strong bones and healthy bodies. To that end, The Dairy Alliance works with consumers of all ages to provide them with nutritional information, dairy industry news, research and recipes for a healthy lifestyle that includes three servings of milk, cheese or yogurt each day.
