Another delicious splenda recipe. This makes for a great dessert or a filling protein alternative. For those of you who don't already know, unsweetened cocoa is rich in antioxidants and high in fiber. Peanut butter is cholesterol-free, rich in vitamin E, niacin and iron. I buy 16 0z to-go cups w/ lids at Costco and I enjoy one of these on a morning where I am very rushed and need something hot and filling and healthy calories. You can use soy milk instead if you prefer.
- 16 ounces 1% low-fat milk
- 1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
- 2 (1 g) packets Splenda sugar substitute (or two teaspoons)
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened baking cocoa, hershey's powder
- 1⁄4 cup fat free marshmallows
- Heat milk to very hot in mug.
- Add peanut butter and stir until melted (use a mini hand blender if you have one).
- Add splenda and cocoa and stir well.
- Top off with marshmallows before serving.
- Another option, if you want a creamier texture, use a blender to mix well before heating.
Pretty healthy and would make a good breakfast on the go. I found it a bit bitter, a little more splenda or sugar would have been more to my taste. With a hint of peanut butter flavor, I was suprised that the kids didn't like it; however, mine gave it three thumbs down. I'll just save this one for me. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
