Have you ever been in a pinch to pull together a dish for a last minute gathering? We certainly have! In fact, one of our Lifeway team members needed a dessert for an after work gathering just a few days ago. Instead of running to the grocery store to buy a box of generic cookies, we looked throughout our cupboards and our blog archive for something we could throw together quickly that would satisfy everyone!
This past March we came up with a delicious recipe for peanut butter kefir pie jars. With only a few staple ingredients (Lifeway Kefir, peanut butter, graham crackers and chocolate sauce) and a handful of steps, it’s the perfect solution for your spontaneous dessert needs. Feel free to substitute any cookie or sweet cracker you have the crumbles, if you don’t have any graham crackers. The recipe also doubles (or triples) very well, and can be made into smaller servings to feed a crowd.
Probiotic Peanut Butter Kefir Cups
- 1/2 cup natural creamy peanut butter
- 2 cups Lifeway Lowfat Madagascar Vanilla Kefir*
- 1 cup chocolate graham cracker crumbs
- 2 Tbsp chocolate sauce
* if you only have Lifeway Lowfat Plain Kefir, use that and add 2 tsp of vanilla extract and 1-2 packets of sweetener
In a large, cold bowl, whisk together peanut butter and kefir, adding kefir ¼ cup at a time. (Tip: whisk the peanut butter separately until smooth – it is much easier to incorporate that way). Place the bowl in the refrigerator chill until ready to serve.
When ready to serve, divide the chocolate crumbs into four small mason jars. Spoon the kefir peanut butter mixture equally into the four jars and drizzle the top with chocolate sauce to garnish. Feel free to add mint leaves or extra crumbs to garnish as well. That’s it – it’s easy as pie.
