Our Friday night grocery shopping trips have turned into a significant source of recipe inspiration, but I’m beginning to suspect my husband has figured out the trend and is using it to his advantage… Last week he wanted Graham crackers, this week he was lobbying for various items that I wouldn’t allow in the cart. On more than one occasion I brandished an offending box while pointing at the unreasonably long ingredient list to demonstrate why, in addition to the outrageous sugar content, this item would not be coming home with us. As a consolation prize, I promised to make last week’s Greek yogurt Graham crackers again and something to dip them in. This Greek yogurt cake batter dip was what I created and it’s been a big hit!
In addition to using Greek yogurt and leaving out the usual suspect dessert dip ingredients like butter and whipped topping, this cake batter dip has absolutely no cake mix. Commercial cake mixes are way too sweet for my taste! Instead, I added a moderate level of sweetness and an authentic cake batter taste by using vanilla protein powder.
As some people may already know from previous posts, I prefer plain whey protein, when I use it at all. That having been said, vanilla protein powder is absolutely perfect for this recipe. It’s moderately sweet and the flavor is spot on!
If you’re like us and don’t have a container of it sitting around, check a supplement store or the grocery store for individual serving-sized packages of protein powder. They’re pretty easy to find.
In addition to being awesome with homemade Graham crackers, this protein-packed cake batter dip is also delicious with pretzels, apples, and pretty much anything else you’d dunk in a fruit dip.
