I was making a really indulgent snickers style peanut butter milkshake earlier this week when I decided to try out making a healthier version because I can’t be indulgent all the time! It worked so well that I thought I would share it with you guys. It uses just 4 ingredients and is fairly frothy and delicious just as a milkshake should be but without your entire daily calorie allowance. It really helps if you have a high powered blender for this as you will need to blitz the ice cubes and also ensure the peanut butter is distributed throughout.
Snickers Style Peanut Butter Milkshake
You will need:
1 cup of 1% milk ( or any milk you prefer )
2 heaped tbsp of good quality peanut butter
2 tsp of choc shot syrup ( I used sweet freedom which is completely fruit based and suitable for diabetics ) or a natural sweetener
1 tbsp of raw/natural cocoa ( add more cocoa if you aren’t using the chocolate sweetener)
1/2 cup of ice
*Optional -Additional chocolate syrup for decorating glass –
Blitz all ingredients in a high powered blender until frothy and smooth. Taste and add more peanut butter if required.
This whilst not tasting anywhere near as indulgent as the other milkshake was still full of flavour and frothy so I didn’t feel like I was missing out too much. I tricked myself into believing there was real chocolate in as the cocoa added that hint of flavour and the choc syrup helped too!
I will share the indulgent recipe with you later this week. Which will you choose?
