Recently I decided to make a life change when it came to refined sugar in my diet and have been creating recipes that are not only good for you but can curb your sweet tooth by replacing processed ingredients with heart healthy choices to help fuel your body and energy through out the day.
One of my guiltiest pleasures is a Reese Peanut Butter Cup and not wanting to give them up completely I whipped up this low calorie Peanut Butter and Chocolate Shake so I can continue to get my fix 😉 but feed my body, mind and soul.
INDREDEINTS FOR PEANUT BUTTER AND CHOCOLATE SHAKE
Make 4 cups
¼ cup organic crunchy peanut butter
1-cup chocolate coconut almond milk
1- cup ice cubs
1 banana (cut 4 thin slices for garnish)
4 miniature Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups sliced in half
8 fresh mint leaves
2 teaspoons cocoa nibs*
DIRECTIONS FOR PEANUT BUTTER AND CHOCOLATE SHAKE
Place the first 5 ingredients into a blender and blend for 30 second until smooth and creamy.
Garnish each serving with a banana slice, fresh mint, 1 teaspoon cocoa nibs, and the peanut butter cup.
*If you can’t find cocoa nibs, use chocolate chips lightly chopped.
What’s your guiltiest food pleasure?
