Craving candy? Try my Healthy Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie instead. It’s a guilt-free treat.
Happy almost Halloween! I have a bit of a confession to make. I’m not a big fan of Halloween… I never have been. I’m going to sound like a big Halloween scrooge here, but I don’t really like costumes, being scared or anything involving creepy face makeup. I KNOW. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not going to sit home alone and pout, but in general it’s not my thing. I will be dressing up my dogs and getting a good laugh about it. Does that count as celebrating?
Apathy for Halloween doesn’t stop me from enjoying some treats. One of my all-time favorites is a peanut butter cup. You just can’t go wrong with the chocolate and peanut butter combination. Those were always the first to go in my Halloween candy bag growing up. And in honor of living in balance I think you should have a couple of these treats on the big day.
But for all the rest of the days, how about a Peanut Butter Cup inspired healthy smoothie!??
Believe it or not this is actually pretty healthy guys. I’d venture to say you could have this several times the week of Halloween and be no worse for the wear.
In fact… I’ll wait while you start the blender.
The base for the smoothie is frozen bananas (yes, AGAIN… but it WORKS,) but with the chocolate and peanut butter powder in it, you don’t even taste it. It really just turns into a neutral base.
I normally don’t like adding just plain ice to my smoothies, but this one calls for it because it just needs a little extra bulk without adding more calories. Just consider it a little additional hydration in the off chance you overdue it on the big day. 😉
The finished product is perfectly festive this time of year, but would honestly make a tasty smoothie any day.
I mean really.. is it ever a bad day to have chocolate and peanut butter????
I didn’t think soooo. Enjoy!
