…to the best smoothie I have had in a long time…

The secret weapon:

CoCo Bananas peanut butter!

And it was so easy…

  • 3/4 C. of unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 glass full of ice
  • 1 banana
  • 1 heaping tablespoon of CoCo Bananas PNB
  • 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder (I use SunWarrior!)
  • 1/2 teaspoon on vanilla flavoring
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon

Add all ingredients to the blender, and blend until smooth.

Believe me, you need to try this. It’s OK–you can thank me later.

To go with my smoothie, I also made a breakfast sandwich complete with egg, turkey, and cheese on a whole wheat bagel thin. I’m not gonna lie–it hit the spot. Breakfast was on point this morning.

Have you had anything that really hit the spot for you lately? Please share!

I am off to go get some errands done and enjoy my day off, have a good one!

Haha, that is a mouthful! ๐Ÿ™‚

The awesome people over at PBCrave were kind enough to send me some samples of their products to try and share my thoughts with you! I couldn’t wait to try it as soon as the mail came! ๐Ÿ™‚

First up, I decided to make Buckeye cookies! Who doesn’t love peanut butter and chocolate in cookie/candy form?! The only thing to make it better:

Cookie Nookie! From the PBCrave website: “A mouth-watering mix of chocolate chips, cookie dough flavor, wild honey and premium peanut butter โ€” itโ€™s two classics together as one.” ย  ย Umm. Yes, please!ย ๐Ÿ™‚

Making the buckeyes was pretty easy–we usually only make them at Christmastime–but this was a special occasion:

  • 1/2 cup Cookie Nookie peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened to room temperature
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

First mix the peanut butter, butter, and powdered sugar in a bowl. It’s all in the wrist, kids! The dough will be dry and crumbly–this is normal!

The roll the dough into 1″ balls and place on a cookie sheet. I used parchment paper for easy clean-up! The place a toothpick in each ball:

I got 21 cookies out of this–but if I would have measured better, and not done some sampling–I would have had 24! ๐Ÿ™‚

Then just put this in the freezer for about 20-30 minutes.

After the mixture has had time to harden put the chocolate chips in a double boiler, or I’m sure you could microwave them a little at a time. ย Take each ball and roll in the melted chocolate, but make sure to leave some of the PB showing at the top to give it the “buckeye” appearance!

Then I took out the toothpicks and placed them back in the freezer until the chocolate hardened. I’m glad I made a small batch of these because they are so sweet, I can only enjoy one at a time!

But the cookie dough flavor is fantastic!

I also had some of the Razzle Dazzle flavor on top of a waffle for breakfast today…uh.maz.ing. I will let you know how I feel about the other flavors as I try them!

And in honor of PB&J day yesterday…they are offing free shipping for the next couple of days with promo code “NPBJELLY”!! Follow @PBCRAVE on twitter for more promos!

Happy Tuesday! xoxo.
