Peanut Butter Cup Smoothies

I recently fell in love with Tropical Smoothie's Peanut Butter Cup smoothie. At $4.99 for one, it becomes quite expensive ((especially since I was getting one every day)).

Well, enter Google. I began searching for days trying to find the perfect recipe to replicate this smoothie. I ended up at PB Fingers. She had posted a recipe way back in 2011. After trying her recipe, I decided that this was the closest that I was going to get. I spent weeks altering the recipe and I think that I've finally got it!

Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie

Toss into a blender:

  • 4 ounces of water
  • 2 tsps Sugar In The Raw
  • 6 ice cubes
  • 1 tbsp Ghirardelli Premium Baking Cocoa ((I used Sweet Ground))
  • 1 banana (frozen or fresh)
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder

The tip about the water came from the nice lady at the cafe. I was using milk before but the texture wasn't coming out right. Now I get to enjoy my Peanut Butter Cup smoothies without the expensive price tag ((Just in time for our No Spend Challenge)).

    Looks good. I told myself I was going to start trying a smoothie a day this month. I have no idea what happened.
