That’s right. A healthy shake. It’s totally possible.
If you’re anything like me…you crave sweets after dinner…almost every night. I am notorious for convincing Blake that a DQ stop is absolutely necessary because I NEED to eat my vanilla cone with crunch on top. Errrrr. I don’t really need it. And while soft serve isn’t THAT bad for you (lower in calorie)…it’s still loaded with added sugar.
Operation- make myself a healthy dessert that I don’t feel bad eating.
I call this: My Favorite [healthy] Banana Shake topped with The Healthiest Peanut Butter Chocolate Sauce You’ll Ever Eat.
I had to add some fat free whipped cream for a little kick…plus it makes the photos pretty 🙂
What’s in the shake?
1 Frozen Banana. 1 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk. And a secret ingredient: a little scoop of Peanut Butter.
Protein Powder is optional. I actually ended up adding 1/2 scoop Vanilla Designer Whey.

Didn’t guess that did, yah?!
Ahhh, so yummy I could eat my screen!
On a smoothie note- after this month, I am going to hold off on posting any Designer Whey Recipes (I am on contract to create 4 recipes for the DW brand each month) until the end of the month so that I can share them all at once. I hope you don’t mind, I’m just really excited how great these are all turning out! Here are my latest two: Raz Cran Smoothie and Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie.
I want to make sure that I am conscious on how many sponsored posts each month I do. I know it seems like I have been doing a lot lately, but a lot of great opportunities all came at once!
Cheers to a healthy shake.
