Peanut Butter & Chocolate “SOOTHIE”!

PEANUT BUTTER AND CHOCOLATE SOOTHIE!

Serves 4-4 ounce servings

My one guilty pleasure all my life is eating Peanut Butter Cups. My problem was, (still is) I wouldn’t eat just one package. No, I ate at least 3 with each sitting, if you do the math it’s 6 cups. I loved it while I was doing it, but I paid the price afterward. There was the immediate high from the sugar, the usual dull throbbing headache that accompanies it, an aching tummy, followed by the “crash”, then I turn into Ms. Crabby Patty.

I’m happy to say that I don’t do that anymore. I just don’t like the way I feel afterward. So, I have a choice, do I want unnecessary fat and added sugar in my body and the way it makes me feel, or do it in a way where I would get the same satisfaction with the added bonus of ingredients that are good for me?

I found a way to combine my two favorite ingredients, chocolate, and peanut butter together in one smoothie.

Let’s stay realistic here, banana’s, natural peanut butter, contain natural sugar, so I keep the portions to 4-ounce servings.

I will benefit from the natural ingredients and get the satisfaction of a truly delicious drink that makes me happy!
