Thirsty Thursday: Outsmart your cravings

  • image

 

As most of you know, I’m pregnant with my second child. For the last two weeks I’ve been having cravings for sweets. Mostly for peanut butter cups. While I’ll admit I’ve had a few in the last few weeks, I’m not using my cravings as an excuse to ruin my choice to have a healthy and fit pregnancy. Instead of having a pb cup everyday, I’ve been making chocolate pb shakes as my morning snack/meal. It’s a pretty self explanatory recipe, but I thought I’d share how I make mine.

Ingredients

  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder/supplement of choice (I use a chocolate vegan meal replacement powder)
  • 1 cup milk of choice ( You can use pretty much anything. I know there are different kinds for all of the allergies and sensitivities out there. I personally enjoy unsweetened almond milk in my shakes)
  • 1-2 TBSP Peanut Butter (I prefer powdered pb. Jif Peanut Powder is my new favorite)
  • Ice to taste

 

Instructions

Add all ingredients to blender, and blend to your liking.

Enjoy! 🙂
