Banana-Almond Dip

Banana-Almond Dip with Raisins

Banana-Almond Dip
This is delicious on an old shoe.  Okay, probably not.  But it’s deceptively simple and really, really good.  You could omit the raisins if you want a smooth dip.  P. and I really liked this on cinnamon English muffins with the raisins sprinkled on top, but if you stir the raisins into it it’s fun to scoop on celery sticks for a new twist on ants on a log.

1 cup greek yogurt (or plain yogurt, strained)
½ cup ricotta cheese
2 bananas
1/3 cup creamy almond butter, preferably with salt (if yours is a no-salt variety, add about 1/2 tsp. salt to the dip)
½ cup raisins

Combine yogurt, ricotta cheese, bananas, and almond butter in a blender or food processor.  Blend until smooth and creamy.  Add the raisins, if desired, and stir to combine.
