Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie

I made this up this morning, and oh boy, what a treat! It is better than any Atkins Shake I’ve ever had and is cheaper and more filling too! This will definitely become a part of my breakfast arsenal. Pair it with a couple of pieces of bacon and you’re good to go! Super easy and super yummy. Word of warning…if you are in induction, this is not for you. Sorry. But if you can make it through your two weeks you can add nuts (and peanut butter) and still stay in induction.

2 tablespoons Laura Scudder’s Natural Peanut Butter

2 tablespoons Hershey’s Sugar Free Chocolate Syrup

8 oz unsweetened vanilla almond milk

1 scoop Jay Robb’s Vanilla Whey Protein Powder

6 cubes of ice

Put everything except the ice in a blender and blend it until everything is mixed up well. Then add one ice cube at a time, blending it until you don’t hear the snap crackle pop of the ice anymore. Then add another cube and so forth and so on.

About wahoowa96

I am a low carb fan and have been for over a year now. Before I discovered this way of eating, I was pre-diabetic, had off the charts cholesterol and high blood pressure. With no meds, all of that stuff is normal now. Thank you so much, Dr. Atkins, for showing me such a wonderful way of eating that is delicious, satisfying and healthy! Even if you don't struggle with your weight, I highly recommend you taking on the low carb way of life. The health benefits to doing so are legion! I have a beautiful wife and two of the most adorable children a dad could ask for.
