PEANUT BUTTER AND CHOCOLATE SHAKE!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I decided long ago to make a life change when it came to refined sugar in my diet and have been creating recipes that are not only good for you but can curb your sweet tooth by replacing processed ingredients with heart-healthy choices to help fuel your body and energy throughout the day.
One of my guiltiest pleasures is a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup and not wanting to give them up completely I whipped up this low-calorie Peanut Butter and Chocolate Shake so I can continue to get my fix.

    Thank you for this ~ it is something I can eat that will be sweet but good for me. I can not use artificial sweeteners that so many things call for.

    I’m doing the same thing (less sugar)…hard for me to get my veggies in my daily diet. I’m drinking LOTS of green juice, and I’m going to try this for my treat! As soon as I make it, I’ll let you know, but this sounds like it’s going to be a winner:)
