Skinny Chocolate Peanut Butter Milkshake

Pin It!
I recently discovered something even better than peanut butter.

 
 
I really didn't think that was possible. 

Skippy's chocolate peanut butter was one of my favorite discoveries of 2013!  Speaking of years, I was looking through my most recent journal and Bible study notebook and every.single.one had "1/2/13" or "1/7/13" in the corner.  I do this every year; I think it deserves its own resolution.  Thank goodness the blog automatically changes the date header because you all would still think I was living in '13.  Ugg. 


I made Nutella and banana sandwiches for Abigail and Elizabeth one time, with leftover Nutella from a recipe.  They started asking for it all the time!  Nutella is really good, but it isn't necessarily good for you. Skippy's Chocolate Peanut Butter Spread is an excellent substitute for Nutella and is way better for you.  Elizabeth didn't like how peanut butter-y it was, but is slowly being converted. Me and Abigail only needed one spoonful to be hooked.


This milkshake is super thick and creamy thanks to the combination of frozen banana and Greek yogurt. It gets the chocolate kick from the cocoa powder and the tablespoon of chocolate peanut butter gives it three different things - more creaminess (really, it's amazing how much a tablespoon adds!) more chocolate flavor and, of course, the peanut butter flavor.  It's sweet and rich and satisfying.  This at least makes my jar last longer!

1/2 cup vanilla Greek yogurt 
3 tablespoon cocoa powder 
1 tablespoon Skippy's chocolate peanut butter

Now, if I can find something better than this chocolate peanut butter, then I'll be set! 

Hey, one more thing.  I've been having a little trouble with my commenting system and I was wondering if you could answer a couple questions to help me figure out what's up?  When you comment, what ID do you use?  Google, Wordpress, open?  Also, I was wondering if you have a comment system you use or have used on other blogs that you've really liked?  I'd like to change mine, but haven't quite committed yet.  Thanks!

  1. Chocolate peanut butter would be the death of me -- I would love it! This smoothie looks so great, I wouldn't need dessert. I agree about Nutella -- I use it as an ingredient only here or there because there's so much sugar in it! Chocolate peanut butter would be welcome!
