This is a recipe I make thats quick, easy, and healthy. You are getting your nutrients from the slimfast, as well as protein from the peanut butter, and dairy from the milk. It's quick and easy to make. (the recipe publisher didn't find the slimfast powder for calorie purposes, add 110 calories to the total for an accurate number).
- 1 scoop chocolate, slimfast powder
- 3 tablespoons reduced-fat peanut butter
- 6 ounces milk
- 6 ounces ice
- Combine all ingredients in a blender, blend on high until well blended.
This is a good recipe...but to cut more calories and sugar while still adding flavor this is what I use:
1 level scoop chocolate slim fast powder
1 cup (8oz) soy almond milk unsweetened
2 tbsp. peanut butter powder (found in health stores)
1/2 frozen banana (optional)
and 4-6 ice cubes if not using banana (or as many to your liking)
Mix all ingredients in a blender until smooth, enjoy!
I only use peanutbutter powder because it has 45cals. per 2tbsp., 1gram of sugar compared to the store prepared peanutbutter and I use the almond soy milk unsweetened since there's no sugar or calories. So all together this a little over 200 calories all together and almost 300 calories w/ banana!
I pretty much followed your recipe, but I did double it for the 2 of us, then substituted 2 frozen bananas for the ice, which gave it a creamier texture than you'd intended, I'm sure, but it was wonderfully tasty! Loved the chocolate & PB combo! [Made & reviewed for the closing of Pick A Chef event]
