Chocolate and Peanut Butter – Need I say more?

 July 8, 2016

I have a secret for you.

Well, it’s not TOO big a secret for those of you who know me well.  I have a major sweet tooth and I absolutely LOVE chocolate and peanut butter and even more so together, in the form of dessert.

Last April, when I became a fit coach, I decided to go all in and really take my fitness seriously.  I started to follow the Beachbody programs on rotations instead of just mixing and matching, and I knew that to get maximum results, I needed to dial in my nutrition.

But – I love sweets too – but I knew they wouldn’t fit a healthy meal plan.

Then I discovered my superfoods shake and the amazing combo of Vegan Chocolate with almond milk and natural peanut butter.  Yum!!

But- fast forward a bit to the glorious day when I discovered this recipe – for Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups.  3 ingredient healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups.  I was intrigued.

I tried them – and SO easy to make, plus delicious.

Here’s what you need:

2 tsp. Chocolate Shakeology (I prefer vegan, it tastes richer to me)

2 tsp. unrefined coconut oil (melted)

2 TBS PB2 (or any brand powdered peanut butter)

2 TBS water

Here’s what you need to do:

1.  Combine coconut oil and PB2 in a small bowl.  Set aside.

2.  Combine Shakeology and water in a 2nd bowl until it reaches a pudding-like consistency.  Set aside.

3.  Split peanut butter mixture evenly into 2 muffin liners.  Top each with half the chocolate mixture.

4.  Freeze for approximately 30 minutes (until firm)

5.  Enjoy, and thank Coach GG for this amazing recipe!
