Skinny Peanut Butter & Chocolate Shake

I had a craving for a Reese’s Peanut Butter cup.  Who am I kidding, I could always go for one because they are one of my favorite candies.  Sadly, they are not diet friendly.  I’m still on my quest to lose weight so that’s not an option right now.  Since I had the craving, I made the next best thing, a peanut butter and chocolate shake.  In general I refuse to feel guilty for eating something “bad” (all things in moderation, right?), so this is a healthier version of what you’d find at your local ice cream shop because I skipped the …

Skinny Banana Blueberry Shake

I’m so excited about this Skinny Banana Blueberry Shake because it’s one of my best tasting shake creations!  I make shakes and smoothies often.  I don’t tend to follow recipes but instead I just throw a bunch of ingredients in the blender, usually whatever I have in the fridge.  Sometimes I have a winner and sometimes not so much.

Skinny Strawberry Chocolate Shake

What is a “skinny” shake?  I had never heard of a “skinny” recipe until I joined pinterest.com (shout out to my sister who got me hooked on Pinterest).   It means that the recipe has low calories, low fat, or is simply a healthier version of an original recipe.  I learn something new everyday.     🙂 I’ve been addicted to eating muffins for breakfast lately so I’m trying very hard to incorporate healthy meals and snacks for the rest of the day.  After all, bathing suit season is right around the corner. 😮 Here enters the pretty pink drink.  It’s my new best friend …
