Home / BALANCE / Health Fix: Peanut Butter and Chocolate Smoothie
A healthy version of a very popular treat.

Thanks to Hershey, the Reese’s Piece is a beloved American guilty pleasure. But stuffing your face with sugary chocolate is never the healthiest choice.

Cancel out the guilt with this DIY “Reese’s” smoothie and you can keep the memory of your favorite childhood candy alive. The key is to replace the milk chocolate for Carob powder– a chocolate alternative that is still sweet, yet high in fiber and low in fat.

What you’ll need:

– Almond milk (8oz.)

– 1 banana

– Peanut butter (2 spoonfuls)

– Carob powder (2 spoonfuls)

– Cinnamon (as much as you’d like)

– Ice

Put all ingredients in a blender in the above order and blend until the mixture is smooth and creamy. This smoothie comes in handy as a snack, dessert, or anytime your sweet tooth starts aching .
