This smoothie is low fat and really healthy..So all those who want a dessert but not the calories..read on, you’re in for a treat!
You know at times when you’ve got so many great ideas running through your head and you put them together to create something that blows your mind..and you wonder how you did it!? That’s exactly what happened to me here. This smoothie idea is a result of frivolous pinning and uncontrollable urges of putting together chocolate and peanut butter into something that would make everyone go crazy like I did when I ate my super delicious Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies. I sooo wanted to replicate that but without the extra cals. Enter Super Healthy Peanut Butter Smoothie that tastes almost like Snickers. No kidding..Try it and you’ll know! FYI Snickers is my favorite chocolate or candy..or whatever you like to call it, so I’ll be extra generous with compliments this time.
This smoothie had me craving for more..which is rare considering how thick chocolate smoothies make you feel so full and almost sick to your stomach. That’s probably because it doesn’t have anything unhealthy in it. Before you say peanut butter is unhealthy why don’t you read this. I had no clue 2 tablespoons of peanut butter a day are actually good for you..just like olive oil..and that’s how much I’ve used in 1 serving of my smoothie..So drink away guys..this is health food! 😀
Besides being healthy, this smoothie is really easy to put together like most smoothies. But don’t confuse this one for “just another smoothie recipe” because my darlings..you can easily have this for dessert! It tastes sooo rich and almost like a bar of chocolate, you won’t miss cake, I promise. It’s really versatile too..solves many purposes. Let’s assume you’ve got a sudden chocolate cravings.. what do you do? You make THIS. You’ve got no flour but need dessert..what do you do? You make THIS. You just need something to make you feel that health food can taste good..what do you do? YOU MAKE THIS! So many reasons to make it so just head down to your kitchen and make it already..!! If you try it out, let me know what you think as soon as you’re done licking the life out of that glass..! 😀
RECIPE: Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie aka Snicker Smoothie
INGREDIENTS Serves: 1 Time: 5 minutes
- Frozen Banana, 1 large or 2 small
- Creamy Peanut Butter, 2 tablespoons (If you’re not health crazy add 3 for extra flavor..I did 😉
- Cocoa Powder, 2 tablespoons
- Milk, 1/2 cup or 120 ml (skimmed or whole/toned or full cream)
- Honey or Sugar Syrup, 1-2 tablespoons (depends on how sweet you like your smoothies)
*If you like your smoothies really thick, double the frozen bananas in the recipe.
In a blender, blend the frozen banana until it becomes creamy like a soft serve. Add in the remaining ingredients and blend again until smooth. Drink immediately or chill in the freezer for 5-10 minutes before consuming.
