I pretty much want to indulge all of the time, but I’m told that’s bad for you, or something. So when I have a massive sweet tooth, I try to chill it out with something like this smoothie. So I can indulge, but not too much.
It’s sweet, creamy, and most importantly cold. It’s pretty low in fat, but I imagine it’s still a little high in carbs, since bananas have lots of sugar in them.
- 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- two frozen bananas
- 3 tbsp PB2
- 1 tbsp Cocoa powder
- Put all of the ingredients in the blender and mix until combined
PB2 is a powdered peanut butter. It only has 45 calories per 2 tablespoons. I gives the shake a nice peanut butter flavor without the calories.
It’s fast and simple. And as someone who chronically suffers from ice cream cravings, this really does the trick.
