Snickers Smoothie

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!"  

BUT.................

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.

Snickers Smoothie

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)
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

  4. It truly resembles a Snickers candy bar but I thought The Hershey cocoa powder was too bitter so next time I'm going to use 1 tablespoon instead of 2.

  6. For months I have wanted to make a Snickers Smoothie like I've seen mentioned in THM circles, but never had caramel extract until today. I just made and devoured my first of what I feel sure will be MANY more Snickers Smoothies. And it's a Fuel Pull! It doesn't even make sense to me how good it is. I am so happy!

  10. Do you think I could use the integral collagen instead of the glucomannan? I can't tolerate it.

    1. I'm sure it would turn out fine. I have made lots of smoothie that call for gucci and didn't miss it at all!

  11. Seriously.

    This is SO GOOD.

    Used 1 tbsp of pyure instead of Truvia and it was fabulous. Not bitter at all.

  15. I always put about 1/3 cup of 1% cottage cheese in mine, too. It makes it nice and creamy, and you cannot taste the cottage cheese! I also probably use more ice than that. Of course, when I make a shake or smoothie, I make a BIG one! I do the 1/2 cup almond milk and 1/2 cup water. Not only is it better for weight loss, it helps conserve the almond milk.

  16. Oh! And I use ten packets of Truvia and maybe two or three grapes to amp up the sweetness.
