The Smoothie to Cure All Chocolate Peanut Butter Cravings!

5 WWPP Posted by 2 years ago 10 Comments

First, let me tell you this is probably the last you’ll hear from me for at least a week. Tomorrow I’m off to Savannah, Georgia, to host the annual FitBloggin’ conference. It’s easily the most emotional, stressful, fun week of my year and for as much as I freak out over every detail, I simply can’t wait to see all my blogger friends. After 5 years it’s truly turned into a family reunion and I feel so blessed to have such an amazing group of people in my life.

Yes, I realize I sound like a sappy lunatic but it’s all true.

Anyway, I hope to get inspired when I’m there for some new southern dishes. In meantime I’m leaving you with this simple yet amazing smoothie I made yesterday. It took a lot of self control not to just suck it down in one big gulp. Thankfully I had a partner in crime.

Toddler Drinking Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie

Finally a kid who shares my passion for peanut butter (and cheese!). My first doesn’t like either and it still blows my mind he came from my womb.

For this idea I used PB2.

PB2

It’s powdered peanut butter and I’ve been hesitant to try it. First I couldn’t imagine it being good. Second, I’m really trying to enjoy REAL food sensibly instead of replacing things with diet versions. However, I may have to make an exception for powdered peanut butter. It’s totally satisfies that peanut butter craving with a heck of a lot fewer calories and fat.

The Smoothie to Cure All Chocolate Peanut Butter Cravings! I found my jar at Big Lots but I’ve been aware of it online for sometime. I don’t think I’d use it as a replacement for peanut butter on toast but in smoothies and maybe cookies and such this jar could be a lifesaver, especially on those days you find yourself wanting to grab a spoon and jar, which happens to me about once a month. *cough*

Anyway, here’s what I did…

  • 1 medium ripe banana
  • 2 tbsp PB2 (12g)
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (10g)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened Almond Milk
  • ~5 ice cubes

Put everything in the blender.

Blend!

Smoothies are so easy! I love it.

This would also be a great recipe to sneak in a few greens. I just didn’t happen to have any on hand because I’ve been cleaning out my fridge to prepare for my trip.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Hi Roni!!! I don't think I've ever posted on GB before, but the smoothie looks delicious. I'm all for using PB2 to save caloires & fat also, as I LOVE peanutbutter, but SO high in calories. Anyways, did you add some Almond milk to the above??? It looks pretty smooth/milky for just ice & a banana????? THANKS!!

    Roni, I love your site and cookbook. I have been following you for five plus years now. Tonight for the first time an annoying McDonald's banner/ad keeps popping up at the bottom of the screen. It is here while I type. I know you need advertising to exist but I find McDonald's to be quite contradictory to what you are all about. It would sadden me greatly if you have this type of advertising on your site. Signed Kathleen a fond and confused fan of Geenlitebites.

      Thanks for letting me know Kathleen, I use an ad network for my ads and sometimes they let a few sneak in. I'll contact them and let them know. Thanks again!

    Oh this looks so good - and I have all of the ingredients on hand! I've been using PB2 to make overnight oatmeal and I love it. Not as intense a peanut butter flavor as the real stuff, but it's tasty without all of the calories and fat. I don't really think of PB2 as a "diet" food, but more of a healthier choice. It's just peanuts with a small amount of sugar and salt, no chemicals or preservatives or extra stuff - I think it's real food in a different format.

    Roni--made this for my very first smoothie in my Magic Bullet today, added a few spinach leaves, and it was amazing. Thanks for posting such great recipes and for sharing inspiration on Roni's Weigh!

    What would you suggest using other than bananas? Allergic to them. Thanks.
