Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie – FULL CALPrint Pin Rate
Servings: 1 serving
- 4 tbsp half and half
- 2 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 tbsp PB2 *
- 1 tbsp water
- 5 oz zucchini
- 1 squirt chocolate liquid stevia
- 11 ice cubes **
- 1.5 tsp Swerve
- powdered stevia to taste***
High Powered Blender:
- Add liquids/soft ingredients first, then ice, and blend.
- Add ice first, then rest of ingredients on top. Do crush function first to crush ice. Scrape sides with spatula, then blend.
- You will likely need to scrape the sides with a spatula a time or two.
*Some PB2’s have a lot of sugar, which we don’t want. The one I’ve linked to in the tools guide & here, has only 1 gram of sugar per 2 tbsp, & we only use 1 tbsp in the recipe it calls for, so this is ½ a gram of sugar – the same you would consume in any bacon. So to me this is an acceptable miniscule amount, while it adds great flavor. There’s 4g sugar per 1 tsp, so ½ gram of sugar is 1/8th of a tsp. See? Told ya! Suuuper tiny. **STEVIA NOTES: 1 scoop = the scoop that comes in stevia bottle = 1/32 of tsps = 1 packet stevia. If you do not have any of this, a fewlight shakes. If you do not like stevia, use more erythritol-based sweetener to compensate. It’s not nearly as sweet so per scoop you may need to add 1-3 more tsp. to taste. ***So I’ve discovered ice cube size can vary! These are made with ice-cube trays purchased online. If you make your smoothie and it seems too watery/liquidy and not thick don’t worry, you aren’t crazy! Your ice-cubes are just smaller. Either add more icecubes or buy some trays online to use. The point is your smoothie should be kind of hard to blend- that’s how thick it should be.
