It's not what you can't eat but what you can.

Friday, January 31, 2014

I have been struggling with my chocolate peanut butter ice cream craving. I can give up a lot of junk food but for some reason I crave that creaminess and combination a little too often. Instead of indulging on my favorite treat on a daily basis, I have learned to create a homemade treat that I love just as much.

I have used several different types of protein powders but I keep going back to Metabolic Reset, chocolate flavor. You can try different powders to find one that you like the best.

2 scoops of chocolate protein powder
1 cup of vanilla almond milk
1 tablespoon of PB2 (powdered peanut butter) or creamy natural peanut butter
6 ice cups

Combine ingredients into my trusty Ninja (which I love) and I have created a delicious, filling, and most importantly satisfying Frosty style smoothie all for under 200 calories and packed full of protein.

My other favorite combinations
-1 frozen banana
-1 tablespoon of organic chocolate chips
-sprinkle of cinnamon

The recipes and combinations are endless and if you do something similar I would love for you to share your favorite combos.

    I quit trying to ignore the chocolate craving! I have a Slim Fast meal bar for lunch now (chocolate chip cookie dough, double chocolate) and it makes me very, very happy! Lol! I just couldn't do without it and found ways to make it work! I like your recipe, I may have to try that! emoticon

    That sounds delicious! I'm not a big smoothie fan, but I'd drink both of the recipes you posted!
