This Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie Can Be The Dessert You Want!
Thinking of having a smoothie tonight for dessert? Why not!
This delicious smoothie is keto, low-carb, low-sugar, and delicious, so it can be the treat you were looking for. This smoothie requires almond milk, peanut butter, cocoa powder, protein powder, and ice.
You can replace some of these ingredients with things like cashew milk, coconut milk, almond butter, and coffee grounds.
To make your smoothie a little thicker and more filling, consider adding some fruit or nuts. Keep in mind, though, that this may raise the carbohydrate and caloric content.
Even though you may have your doubts about peanut butter, the truth is, this creamy ingredient is super healthy. You can get lots of protein and essential fatty acids that make your smoothie that much more nutritious.
If you want to skip peanut butter, mix in some avocado for a similar silky and creamy texture. Avocados are a great source of healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals.
Do not skip the cocoa powder either, as it is a very powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Adding a touch of this ingredient to your smoothie will make it that much healthier and stronger at fighting off damage that can translate into illness. Plus, we all love a hint of chocolate without the added calories or guilt!
Finally, the protein powder makes your smoothie truly a superfood, but make sure you pick one that is not too high in sugar and made from a protein source you like. Good options include pea protein, chickpea protein, or soybean protein.
Enjoy your chocolate peanut butter smoothie with ice and blend until smooth!
