After fighting the urge until 11 pm I finally opted for a homemade smoothie and that actually did the trick.
The vegetable smoothie and the fruit smoothie are a staple in my diet, but trying to concoct a gourmet sweet drink without the calories took a little thought — but thankfully not much effort. Here’s my chocolate peanut butter smoothie recipe!
- 2 bananas
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 tbsp honey
- 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa
- 2 tbsp natual peanut butter
- 1 cup ice cubes
- Combine everything in the blender or Ninja IQ 1100. Blend on high until smooth.
- Makes 2 servings — but that’s only if you really want to share.
This basic recipe can be altered easily by substituting coconut milk (get the canned version) for the almond milk and leaving out the peanut butter for a wonderful chocolate coconut treat.
Another version of this smoothie is a double chocolate. Elminiate the peanut butter and substitute 1/4 cup of mini chocolate morsals or sugar free chocolate flavored syrup.
