ONE WORD.... Snickers! Yep! Makes your mouth and mind BUZZZZZZZZ!
This recipe was graciously shared to me by a trim healthy mama. I am always skeptical when something says 'healthy' and has a name brand tagged on it. Like brownies made with cottage cheese. Or how about 'Doritos' kale chips! C+C Music Factory comes to mind with "Things that make you go hmmmmmm!"
This really has a Snickers-ish flare to it. And- I love it.
Go all out on your extract. I have friends that get theirs at Walmart, but quality verses quantity wins me over. You usually have to use more of the cheap stuff to get that punch of flavor. My favorite is Bakto. The other spotlight in this Snickers Shake is Glucomannan. You can read its wonderful qualities here.
Into your favorite blender add the following:
1 cup of Unsweetened Almond milk
(or if you're in heavy weight loss mode, 1/2 cup of almond milk and 1/2 cup of water)
1 scoop of Swanson Whey Protein
3 Tablespoons of Peanut Flour
2 Tablespoons of Cocoa (dark or milk)
1/2 teaspoon of caramel extract
1/4 teaspoon Glucomannan
a sprinkle of sea salt
1-2 Tablespoons of Truvia
1 cup of ice
