I am at my wits end!!
School from home seriously does not translate into snacks every hour!! I wish I could have a bell ring at the same time so we know when to eat and when not to look for things to nibble. So I am narrowing it all down to increase the possible available protein so the search will stop.
Making thickshakes healthy
The easiest snack that makes desserts shy away from is a milkshake. Typically a milkshake just needs milk, fruit, chocolate or vanilla and something to thicken it. This need not be an unhealthy sugar-loaded one. Just some good bananas, nut butters or homemade ice cream does the job plenty.
Why this recipe was loved?
In the middle of the winter milkshakes are more fun to have. They stay thick for a long while. Here are my tricks to keep this gluten-free, blender friendly shake thicker even for summer. As discussed in the classic milkshakes, freeze the milk. In this peanut butter thickshake, freeze both the milk and the banana chunks. This keeps the milkshake so thick and slurpy, yumm.
What else to add to this peanut butter thickshake.
Here is the whole list you can use to create variations.
Chocolate – absolutely yes. Any day chocolate banana peanut butter combo is perfect. Use some good unsweetened cocoa or cocoa nibs to create the change.
Oreos-have one of yours still. needing a nudge with a healthy shake? Here is what I will do, throw in two Oreos as you blend them up into the shake and see them easily vanish.
Apples- yes again. It actually creates such a beautiful change to the shake.
Salted caramel –well it worked, but it was not as superb as the salted caramel and chickpea shake we made earlier, so my vote goes to the earlier recipe.
Ready set, cheese– I know this is revolutionary. Add a scoop of cream cheese and you have an instant cheesecake shake. Here is one we did earlier, chocolate cheesecake shake. But it has no peanut butter in it. Try both together too!!
The one thing I am happy about is, no unknown preservative and out of the bag, stuff that filter into the diets currently as we are all relying on what we can whip out of the kitchen. If you can call that clean eating, we are on it, still enjoying desserts and treats.
