Lately my sweet tooth has taken over. But sugar only satisfies for so long! I can easily go from the freezer stash of chocolate morsels to the cookies pillaged from a recent potluck gathering to a piece of toast laden with jam. It’s bad.
What I really needed was a sweet treat that would fill me up and nourish, too. Hence my new discovery…
Chocolate Peanut Butter Mini Smoothie
- 1/2 cup vanilla flavored Greek yogurt*
- 1 tbsp natural peanut butter
- 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa
- 1 tbsp flax seeds
- 1 tsp agave nectar
- Several ice cubes
This makes a petite little power-shot of a smoothie – just enough to satisfy the sweet tooth and hold off hunger pains until dinner. Plus, the ingredients are simple and protein-packed… just what the doctor ordered.
*If you use plain yogurt, you may need to add a bit of sweetener. I recommend using more agave nectar or maple syrup to avoid artificial varieties.
