Peanut Butter Fudge Protein Shake

 

 

You CAN have a decadent shake AND stay on track to lose those unwanted pounds, you just need to make a few modifications.

 

The first modification is to eliminate the ice cream and use NICE CREAM. It’s an easy switch that will save you tons of calories, sugar, fat and cholesterol. Plus it adds fiber to your Peanut Butter Fudge Protein Shake, which will keep you feeling full and satisfied.

 

The next change would be to add protein in order to balance the amount of carbohydrates you’ll be consuming. It will help balance your blood sugar and again, keep you feeling satiated.  We do that by adding a plant-based protein powder. Easy enough.

 

The last modification is to control your portion size. When you order a shake from a restaurant its typically humongous!

Here’s the recipe for the Easy Dairy Free Hot Fudge Sauce! It’s SUPER SIMPLE and keeps in your fridge for a month.

 

 

 

I love adding a little coconut whipped topping and 1 Tbsp only adds 15 calories, but it gives it so much flavor! It’s up to you and your calorie budget, but if you can “afford” the calories, I would go for it.

 

You could save a few calories by using organic powdered peanut butter, however you won’t get the healthy fats of the pb. It’s a trade off that I use on days when my calorie budget is tight, meaning I’ve had a big lunch or want dessert, so I need to shave a few calories where I can.

If you want to try another healthier version of a shake, try this Shamrock Shake recipe!
