I’ve been posting pics of this shake all over my Instagram and when people started getting excited about it, I realized that I had to share the recipe. Why keep such goodness a secret?
It really is an amazing shake because it’s literally a dessert, but is very low sugar, very low in carbs, high in protein, and healthy fats. Hello miracle.
(Like my stainless steel straw? You can get one here!)
Sometimes it ends up looking a little green, because I can’t resist the urge to put spirulina in it…but I assure you it tastes the same! If you’re not a PB fan, simply skip it! Also, if you’re into superfoods like me, feel free to add some extra love to your smoothie. Maca and lucuma are particularly good for this recipe. This will serve 1 large serving, or two smaller servings.
Chocolate PB Dessert Shake
- 2 tbsp. heavy cream*
- 1 cup almond milk, unsweetened
- 1 tbsp. cocoa (heaping)
- 1 tbsp. natural peanut butter (heaping)
- 1 scoop of whey protein powder
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 3 packets Truvia
- A few drops of chocolate NuNaturals (optional)
- 8 ice cubes
- Small handful of salted peanuts
*Preferably raw and organic
Blend everything (except the peanuts) into quiet submission. Then throw in the peanuts and blend until they’re just slightly chopped. If you like eating your smoothies like ice-cream in a bowl (like me) throw in a few more peanuts and some raw cacao nibs (these are the ones I like) and enjoy! Reeses Pieces in a bowl – without all that sugar!
When my sweet tooth is about to get the best of me, this is my go-to shake. Because. It’s. Just. That. Good.
Do you drink smoothies for dessert?
