Chocolate peanut butter Smoothie are a dream combination, and with this shake, you can enjoy that without feeling guilty (even if it tastes like a shake). The secret of this Peanut Butter Smoothie lies in a hidden ingredient that provides not only its creaminess but also some health benefits. What is that secret ingredient?
What makes this Chocolate Peanut Butter smoothie different from any other is the addition of avocado. Once it’s all mixed together, you can’t even taste it and you can’t even see green at all. Trust me, I gave this to my twins and my husband and they didn’t even know there was avocado inside.
Peanut Butter Smoothie and the keto diet
If you’re on the keto diet, you may be used to chocolate avocado desserts, but if you’ve never tried Chocolate Peanut Butter smoothie before, rest assured, this combination is one you’ll love.
Since the keto diet is low in carbohydrates and high in fat, avocado provides healthy fats from omega-3 fatty acids. The avocado also provides a creamy texture without having to add bananas, which are not part of keto due to the carbs.
Another ingredient with healthy fats is peanut butter. Chocolate Peanut butter is also great for giving an energy boost, and let’s not forget it has that indulgent taste that can make you feel like you’re sipping a smoothie. In fact, you can also drink this for dessert and not have to worry about tons of sugar at night.
If you prefer a little sweetness, you can add 1 teaspoon of honey, but honestly, I think it tastes great the way it is!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothies in the morning
I’m a really big fan of Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothies in the morning. This will really fill the smoothies so they will really keep you satisfied until lunch. I often find that if I eat a regular smoothie for breakfast, I feel hungry shortly afterward. That’s not the case with these chocolate peanut butter smoothies. They provide protein from the 1% milk, oats, and peanut butter, provide enough carbohydrates to fuel you, and are sweetened with just enough honey.
I’m sure these chocolate peanut butter oatmeal smoothies will be just as popular. Because really, who can resist the morning chocolate peanut butter combo? Especially when it comes to something that won’t deceive you for your healthy eating 2021 goals. You’re more than welcome
